Frogged a whole sweater and ended up with a lot of Noro Kureyon
In my mug
Glenmorangie (Highland whiskey) hot toddy
Combine freshly boiled hot water, fresh lemon juice, honey and your choice of whiskey.
The online recipe I used is from the Just a Taste blog:
Tempura Pork balls
Cut a pork chop into 1 in cubes and deep fry. Drain on paper towels.
Dip in tempura batter and deep fry. Drain.
Dip once again in batter and deep fry. Drain and serve with stir-fried veggies.
To make the batter:
Mix a handful of plain flour with a pinch of sea salt, and add cold lemonade (i.e. sprite or 7-Up) until you have a thin batter (like the consistency of paint).

(27:02) American English
In the States – a traditional pressed lemon juice with water and sugar
- Pink Lemonade – add strawberries or raspberries
- A lovely Shirley Temple – Lemon-lime soda (i.e. Sprite or 7-Up, grenadine syrup, and should be garnished with a maraschino cherry (still trying to find the cherries up here or maybe I’m just not cute enough 😉
In England – a fizzy sweet lemon flavoured soft drink

Sonnet xcviii (98)
From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leapt with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue,
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew:
Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
Yet seemed it winter still, and you away,
As with your shadow I with these did play.
