|The silver was moved to the buffet where it will remain until December.|
I have quite a few nice pieces of silver, all found at thrift stores and such...
This looks like a week with less gotta do's and more time to enjoy my days. The silk flowers on the silver tray is actually my corsage from Mr. & Mrs. Christopher's wedding.
I agree with Manuela, there is so much one can do around the home that we should not get bored!
I'm reading a few books that have long been on my list to read and re-read. The Schaeffer book called No Little People is made up of a collection of sermons Francis Schaeffer gave at L'Abri and each chapter is self contained. I first read it ages ago...
A Passion for the Impossible is the biography of Lilias Trotter and I've heard many people recommend Gilead. I almost always have a few books going at the same time, whether "hold in my hand" books or one on the Kindle. :)
After Thanksgiving, I'll begin putting together the stack for my Advent reading... everything from Miss Read's Christmas books to my Advent devotional called Come Thou Long Expected Jesus.
My dear friend B.B. (aka: Belinda) gave me the Hershey's cookbook many years ago (I think for my birthday) because the picture reminded her of me, hehehe. I made a new (to me) brownie recipe from it, they are cooling as I write.
I don't do a lot of baking, anymore... but Hubby and I both thought chocolate sounded good right now. He woke up at 6:30 to stand in line at a food pantry this morning, I'd say the man deserves chocolate... it was only 25 degrees. Brrr...
I also have a loaf of bread mixing in the bread machine. :)
The stopper must not have been in the sink correctly as the water leaked out slowly. I thought it rather attractive and colorful so the camera came out before adding more hot water!
There are usually three or four times the amount of dishes in the sink but with all my baking this morning, I've been washing them as I go about my cooking.
This is what my dining room table has looked like recently.
"Someone" has said he is going to sort through those papers... "someday"... "soon".
I don't think the tea kettle gets enough attention. This one is a work of art (and one of the best Goodwill finds I ever purchased).
Notice the singed side of my spoon holder? That happened when I used the stove for the first time and didn't realize just how hot High was on that burner! That's okay, I still like things even if they are singed and chipped.
The Great Furry Hunter is stalking her next victim. Fortunately for squirrels, chipmunks, dogs, birds, and other kitties... it is only in her dreams.
But she loves to sit and watch her domain... that being the deck and the yard that is in her line of sight. She takes her job very seriously. :)
