they're calling it remoulade, but it tastes a whole lot like fry sauce to me

I have a doctor's appointment today, and this guy has the most boring magazines. I like to use my time at the doctor to catch up on my smut, and how am I supposed to do that when they're only stocking garbage like educational pamphlets and RV Life? It's a real struggle.

Since we're getting our fancy new goat for next spring, I've decided to cut way, way down on the garden. You should see the shocking disarray of our vegetable garden right now. And after last year was so beautiful and well-tended! Now it's all wild, evil fruit, and I'm going to have to cleanse it with fire or something. Yuck. So next year, the only givens in the garden are tomatoes and zucchini. Everything else has to submit a notarized request in triplicate, keeping the goldenrod copy for their personal records. Pink goes to HR, white goes into their permanent file. I wish I were a better person, but as it is, I can't do kidding and gardening in the same year, especially when kidding next spring is also going to mean milking. Finally. I'm stoked. You guys think I'm lying, but milking is such a relaxing activity. It's the setup and takedown that are no fun.

Question: do you have a down comforter? If not, you should get one. If so, can you imagine life without it? I can't. I'd rather gut a fish with my mouth than live without down. For real.

I LOVE my down comforter and I'm so excited to live in a place that requires such warmth for at least half the year. I need/want a new duvet cover for it though. Any suggestions on where to buy one? Hmmmm, I could always buy curtains at Ikea (they are so freaking long) and then make one. That's an idea, isn't it? Fun seeing you today.

I have one I made, one from Ikea, and one from Overstock. Make sure you measure your comforter, because the sizing isn't standard. They're not hard to make, unless you're matching three strips of toile, which I did. I won't be doing that again.
