Celebrating the "new year"


Our Tibetan New Year got off to a happy start yesterday as one of my new prayer rosaries was purchased by a very sweet art supporter I have known for a few years now. I hope the good karma I feel for these rosaries travels with her always! I spent some time this morning getting my Etsy store dusted off, but I will continue to use the paypal buy buttons here on my blog. It's such an easy way to set up purchases.



Wesley also surprised us yesterday with a visit. She called Sunday morning to say that she was sad because she wasn't here to celebrate the Tibetan New Year with us. Never mind that a week ago she didn't even know this existed and I had no real celebration plans anyway....
But she did. She came home and taught me to make the Thukpa, or noodle soup Jamphel and Tashi made with her. Look at this happy girl..... awwwww!


Look Grandma, I'm making homemade noodles just like you used to make, only monks and my daughter taught me how! Wedging, I mean.... kneading dough, haha!


Zhimpo doog!!!! Barbara McKenzie beautiful bowl and the cup Ronan gave me for taking his work to Charlotte, which Gerry has claimed for his own new favorite cup. This is THE BEST soup!


Getting good use out of my new tray from Lark and Key. No one ever guessed the potter......



 Even Gerry got in on the noodle making action


Today we had noodle soup leftovers and I baked some bread. I always want to bake bread when the skies are gray, dumping sleet and snow on us. More bad weather today, Wes was supposed to head back for early classes tomorrow, but she isn't going anywhere on these icy roads. Nice to have her back for a couple of days..... sigh.......

Oh Tracey, the soup,bread,salad all look so delicious! And the joy you all had in making it - I love it.
I don't blame Gerry for claiming that mug - so beautiful.
Happy Tibetan New Year to one and all!

I want a noodle making lesson!

Hey Mary, I'll have to post a recipe for the soup! It's really great, and yes the cup is sooooo nice!
Laura, I was thinking about you being here for lunch that day with the monks and how fun that was, we should definitely have a noodle making day! Let me get through March madness with Gerry and we will do it! Maybe to celebrate the end of basketball season!!

I've often said potters make the best breads and pizza because we know how to wedge....knead. I suppose I need to add noodles to the list. That meal looks delicious.
