Random but tasty

Curry chicken salad - tasty in pitas, my nine year old liked it

1/2 cup mayonnaise
6 tablespoons plain nonfat yogurt
2 1/4 teaspoons red curry paste
1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
3 cups finely diced chicken (about 3 boneless skinless breads poached)
3/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
1 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2-3 teaspoons brown sugar

Whisk mayonnaise, yogurt, sugar and curries in medium bowl. Mix in chicken, peppers, nuts and green onions. Season chicken salad to taste with salt and pepper.

And I'm working fingerless gloves pics soon.

Kinda broken

Ever have one of those days where the grown up part of your brain comes unhooked? You know, the part that makes you persist in work activities or chores just stops working and all you want to do is sit around? I'm blaming it on the heatwave - it's just been disgusting - but I think I just break every so often and wallow with my medulla.
Anyway here's a picture of the finished socks - I like them but I couldn't knit last night I was so tired.

We went to Gatlinburg for vacation. We hiked (12 miles, my knees think I'm too old for that) and rode horses and went to Dollywood and saw fireworks and now we're all really tired.
Here are the socks I did on the trip and some nature shots while I wait for the bread to cool for dinner:
