After my last post it snowed. Yes. I am hopeful that we will not have any more snow until next fall and so my temporary favorite color is yellow. The lemon elixir I told you about is YUMMY! Black tea and a splash of this = crisp and delicious!
Do you eat a lot of cheese? Maybe you don't like to admit you do because cheese has a bad reputation these days, but I don't care. I love all cheese and blue cheese is especially luxurious, don't you think? It pairs well with apples.
With all the walking we've been doing, I'm too tired to go out and plant my seeds. I have a lot of weeding to do, too. Do you wait for the gardening bug to bite you? I trust that it will bite ME! Soon, I hope!
I read the book below a few years ago and then gave it to my niece (another English major) but I've missed owning it. This came the other day, an old library cast off. Have you read it? Everyone who reads it, likes it! Try it!
I also ordered this after recommending it to a fellow grandma for her granddaughter who happens to be crazy over Little Women. I read it years ago. Cornelia Meigs was a fine writer. She respects children and gives them a lot of credit for being smart.
This made me happy! I like the way she wrote: Yours very truly.
Jenny and Scott had fun up at the hot springs this weekend. I was home with their girls. We had a nice friendly weekend together (cherubs, they are!) Jenny brought me this cute fairy story. Aren't the fairies adorable? I usually don't like artists' fairies but I love the cutie pies in this book.
The photo below is also in the book.
Before it snowed I snapped this shot of one of the loveliest bushes ever! The lilac!
I must say that planning a new kitchen and trying not to spend a fortune is difficult. First, it's important to decide what one LIKES and then a host of additional problems arise. For example: You can't always HAVE what you like the BEST!
I'm okay with that, but it means more looking. I think we've sort of figured out most of the plan. One glorious success is that I was able to find this shutter for my pass-through (I've been staring at a wall when I wash dishes for 20+ years) The kind people at Sliverz sent it quickly, so now we'll know the exact size to cut the hole. You can find them on Etsy, too!
I realize that the kitchen project will NOT be all hearts and flowers, but I am taking it as a little sign that this gorgeous item, the first purchase, is so very perfect. Yay!
I've been saving strawberry containers so I can plant seeds indoors. This is the first year since I started teaching ten years ago that I have been able to begin gardening at a normal time in the spring. I am so thankful.
Bless you as you begin thinking about your bit of earth.
Thank you very much for popping in!
