Life's candy and the sun's a ball of butter

Mango and Passionfruit icecream

Oh, it's been so hot here. Too hot for cooking, cleaning, sorting, or icecream making. Late on those hot nights, I would crank the fan up in the sewing room, put the soundtrack to Glee on the little stereo, and sew, sweat, unpick and swear, then sweat and unpick some more until the soundtrack was over. Then I knew I'd definitely had enough, so I'd pack up, have a cold shower and head to bed. It hasn't been a very productive week for sewing as a result, but I do have a top mostly finished except for the hand sewn yoke, and I also have a Barbra Streisand song (and a little bit of Rolling Stones) in my head, thanks to Glee.

Yes, I am a Gleek, and proud of it.

It's cooler tonight, but I don't think there will be any sewing for a few days. Our bestie is coming to visit this weekend so tonight I made mango and passionfruit icecream for her. I think icecream making and cool changes go well together, and I also think it might be my best icecream yet.


  1. That ice cream looks awesome - passionfruit is my fave!

  2. Damn this heat. We have an evap air con. Everything is sticky and wet. I guess I can keep it in prospective when I think of the Haitians. Enjoy your time with your friends..

  3. Oh, that icecream looks so good. Hope you have a fabulous time with your bestie, and a lovely weekend.

  4. Yum, icecream. Have a great weekend!

  5. I'm sweltering here too Michelle, Canberra is a hot plate, but the last 2 days have been a bit of relief!! Homemade icecream, is there anything better?? I know, someone else making homemade icecream for you!!
    Don't stop believing . . . i think that is as Gleek as i can get for you, sorry!! Love Posie

  6. Wow, the weather has been hot. The icecream looks wonderful!

  7. Weather's been beautiful here in Las Vegas, but I'd still happily try that ice cream! And yes, Glee is the best thing ever!
