Not redirecting Diaspora peeps – as D* is the best for a social net…

Not redirecting Diaspora peeps – as D* is the best for a social network in my opinion. However I moved a paid group thingy I had at spruz (similar to Ning – blech) over to self hosted Oxwall. Created initially so that the group I work with could have a private space to share lessons and whatnot without being at the mercy of FB kicking me or someone else out due to not using real name, and of course data mining etc… So just moved it over to self hosted, its a pagan flavoured social site that allows formation of private group, blogs, albums. Just opened, small. Would appeal to Pagans- not a general news sharing/meme sharing site. Created for content.

Moving — please update the URL

Not sure how many people follow this blog ( Peace – I hope I don’t lose touch with you!❤ ) But Im moving back over to self hosted. I found a way to migrate some followers and I’m going to give it a try. New url is http://inthewind.ca There should be a ‘follow’ thingy there shortly, dns JUST propagated this evening so I am working on it now. Also, for any of my pagan friends (or pagan friendly) I created a new social network at http://terraspiritus.ca – it used to be at spruz, but in an attempt to consolidate my online presence in a more affordable manner, Ive switched to Oxwall as an option and its a really nice bit of software. Okay.. going to try this migration tool wish me luck!🙂

Quince Cobbler

Quince Cobbler

I made a few changes to a recipe I found here: http://dessert.food.com/recipe/peach-cobbler-31901

Namely, I used Quince from our tree that I peeled and then sliced and simmered in a shallow pan until soft like peaches. They simmered with two cinnamon sticks and some brown sugar.

Quince Steaming

The recipe called for 1 cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar and 2 tsp baking powder mixed together, with 2/3rds of a cup of milk and one egg added. Once this was all stirred together it didn’t look near enough to cover my 9×13, I added a wee bit more flour (1/4 cup) and bit more sugar, and a smidge more milk – 2 tbsp. While that was all going on, the 1/2 cup of butter was melting in the baking dish in the oven. I poured the batter onto the melted butter (no mixing) and then spooned the quince mixture on top. I used about 5 quince, sliced. They have a large center pithy area that is unusable so 5 isn’t as much as it sounds like. I tossed a few berries on for fun as well. It was bloody good.

And we still have sooo many more to use up!

Harvest Time

As well as a lone cucumber and zucchini (I blame the dog) we had numerous peppers – still laden on the plants – and there is an additional canning pot full of Quince.  Some Quince brought out by the boys for the picture.

There is an amazing northern wind blowing today bending all the greenery in ways they are not used to. The sun is bright but gentle and the wasps are bumbling about , tossed by the wind… which makes me happy because I hate wasps.

Making Quince crumble  for a treat for the boys today. And I best get on it as there is a fetish ball at the Underworld Sim of InWorldz later this evening😉

In LotRO tonight

In LotRO tonight

I killed some things, killed some other things and got silver. It’s actually quite a bit of fun to play but can get monotonous. It’s really the community that makes it so awesome, and the scenery, and the player houses, and my pointy ears… anyhow — first of all, me Elledhil, about to head out from her homestead to go take care of business

I caught a bit of a convo about one of my kinnies.. the Head Kinnie I think, needing help kicking chickens. However, by the time I was done my own murderous rampage she was already done. BAD KINNIE!!! So tomorrow I shall have to be sure to put my neck out on the line. However, tomorrow night is also GuildWars2 night and I’m meandering about lackadaisically at level 25. But man do I ever die alot. Not sure wtf is up with that, Im a Warrior, so basically a tank… however for the life of me I can’t seem to stay alive as long as anyone else. MUST work on that
