|The front porch is ready for winter|
(yes, the ivy in the chicken basket is fake, so is the chicken)!
I'm starting something new, just to kind of stir up the dust around here.
I'm calling it My World This Week with a combination of prose and photos and it will look... well... a lot like this:
I found a copy of The Sister of the Angels for just a few dollars on Amazon, so part of my credit last month went to ordering it (sometimes "Acceptable" is just fine when ordering third party). Thank you again, those of you who enter Amazon through the widget on the sidebar!
This is a Christmas novel based on my beloved A City of the Bells. A lovely story which is sorta' about Christmas traditions and sorta' about creative people and a lot about Redemption... a popular theme with Elizabeth Goudge!
I was going to save it to read with my other Christmas novels during Advent but I couldn't wait... so it will be re-read then ... and that is definitely just fine with me.
|The oven is getting a lot of work again now that cold weather has arrived!|
|My favorite comfort food cookbooks were moved to the basket.|
The recipe books shown have my favorite fall-winter weather recipes in them... other than those found in my recipe card file, of course.
I love getting back in the kitchen in cold weather. We've had a couple different kinds of soup and there is leftover chili in the refrigerator... all in the last week.
|I dried all the herbs and then placed them in the same basket where most came to me fresh...|
Most of the herbs in the basket were brought by my friend, Carolee, when she and her hubby visited (early summer?). Some are from my own garden.
I simply hung the bunches of herbs upside down on a hanger and left them hanging on the shower rod in the tiny bathroom. We obviously do not use that shower! ;)
|How could this face not make you smile?|
|I moved this picture to my bedroom and switched it with...|
|... this bedroom picture which is now in the dining room.|
Tweaking one of the walls...
|Along with the former bedroom picture, I also placed the Friendly Village platter back on the wall.|
|My favorite American president...|
My favorite modern president? Without a doubt, I loved Ronald Reagan!
Well, it has been a very busy week with lots of stuff going on here at home and lots of writing. I need a nap. ;)
