Whats On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 379


Huh? No desk per se.  But I can tell you, a lot - a lot -more work has occurred in this teeny kitchen than has taken place at my desk over the last week. That luscious blonde you see there is my sweet big Sissy, Stephanie. She was cooking a salad. She seems to be cooking in rubber gloves which, even for my family, is a bit strange!  The salad was served cold but vegetables had to be roasted and bulgar wheat had to be cooked and cooled. You know. It was delish.
Steph has been here for just over a week and goes home tomorrow; its been lovely of course. We certainly spark creatively off one another. What we don't seem to do is stop talking long enough to actually fire the spark and make anything! Apart from food, of course.  Ah well, plus ca change.....

So how's your creative week been? Show and tell will you, Steph and I both need encouraging back to real desk action! Put WOYWW in your blog title, link the post here and put the kettle on; we'll all be round in a jiffy.

Oh so glad you have had sister time...love all my time with my sisters.
And lucky you...she cooks. It is past my dream time, but storming so bad I'd not be able to sleep anyway. So much rain and bad lightening, so computer time might be shortened up it electric goes out. Have a wonderful week. Wish your sister safe travels.

Hello Julia,
I know the feeling, for the last 3,4 months my activities in my art room are very low, recently I stumbled across daily paper prompts from daisy yellow and they seem to do the trick for me, hope I keep going and am unstoppable now. hugs, Vicky

BJ said...

I'm up, still in nightie but have done post now and am #15. My last comment was done via my tablet and is slightly incomprehensible due to predictive text! Should have read, "Probably NOT as much crafting AS you!"
Ho Hum, have a good week and maybe do some crafting after your sister goes tomorrow. BJ#15

Zsuzsa Karoly-Smith said...

Your sis seems to be a real whizz in the kitchen! Looks very focused, LOL! You probably ambushed her with the camera! Enjoy your week Julia!

Kyla said...

How lovely to have your sister visiting and I love the glove action shot! Crafting can certainly wait....let's be honest it's a bit like the ironing and dusting...it will still be waiting there for you next week!!

Happy WOYWW. How great to have a sister who visits you (that is a long story for me!) and cooks. I have not had my breakfast yet, so now very hungry. Have a great week. Ali x #19

Angela Radford said...

I can relate to all of this. I don't have a sister but friends who have asked to come round and make Christmas cards. The last time this happened they made one card all day! though it was a pop-up box card. We spent more time talking and drinking tea but it's lovely all the same. Have a great crafty day and happy woyww, Angela x 17

Diana Taylor said...

Those are the best days - sister, chatter and good food - who needs to craft when you have all that going on! It sounds like you've been having a lovely time. enjoy the rest of the week,

That photo will evoke happy memories for years to come .....I have a lovely one of my Mam outside and when I look at it I can still hear her saying "Oh! No! I've still got my rollers in!"
Glad you could spend time together.
Safe journeying to you both

I'm here again! This is getting to be a bit habit forming....I hope....

Marit said...

It's been a while since I had breakfast and seeing this photo sure makes hungry... love to see a photo from another creative space ('cause a kitchen is too, isn't it?!) Enjoy these last day with your sis. Happy woyww and sunny greetings from the Netherlands! Marit #20

Neet said...

It is the obvious thing to put crafting on hold a bit when you have a special visitor. If you have been bouncing ideas off one another surely that is sufficient to get the creative juices flowing when she leaves.
Enjoy the rest of her stay!
Hugs, Neet 10 xx

Elizabeth said...

Nice to see this.

Hi Julia, no desk from me this week, if there was it would be a cafeteria table featuring coffee and a donut. ;). Just arrived at Lori Parquet, a sort of zoo/ wildlife park. Have a lovely week, love from us both.xxxx

Caz said...

Great to see you're having Sis time...big sisters are a great thing!
Hope you're back to full mojo soon!

I love this picture! Glad you're having a fun time with you Sis and her salad sounds delish. Maybe you can find a rock shaped like a glove and paint it for her.
Hugs,

Is there going to be a reveal to your stopwatch puzzle in your previous post, Julia? I'm intrigued!

Where would we be without our sisters?!! I have been round at Annie's keeping her busy to take her mind off the stress of awaiting the arrival of the next little grandson! x Jo

Hello Julia and Stephanie. What great fun the two of you must be having together and the great food that is flying out of the kitchen there.

Elizabeth said...

Ah, sisters - aren't they just wonderful! My youngest sister, a vegetarian, cooked us up the most delicious meal when she was on a visit recently though not wearing rubber gloves. I hope Stephanie is enjoying her stay and getting some good weather too. Happy times. Belated Happy WOYWW! Hugs, Elizabeth x #41
