tuesday: cross stitch: jacob, xoxo

i watched the movie “shirley” over the weekend and had to know more about shirley jackson. i downloaded an audio biography which i have been listening to as i cross stitched my husbands portrait. so far i am only up to her college years, but she was a witty and prolific writer, even as a child. i was first introduced to her in high school where we had to read the lottery. i had since read the haunting of hill house, and we have always lived in the castle when i was a teen. i have just gotten them out of the library to re-read them.

still cooking, today: thai peanut butternut squash soup
