I'm a little under the weather with the huge temperature changes going on in the Midwest. It is to be around 60 today and 8 by tomorrow night... with a snowstorm on the way. But soon Spring will arrive to stay. :)
Mornings have been a little on the drowsy side as my body still thinks it is an hour earlier. But I love it when we "spring forward" because the timing of the setting sun is later. Somehow it makes me feel like the day suddenly became much longer!
So... here is my world this week through the lens of the camera.
This week's stack of books is almost the same as last week, except with the addition of Beatrix Potter's Gardening Life.* I just started perusing it but so far it looks like all the great comments I've seen online are true.
It's a beautiful book and so well written that it is enjoyable to read as well as look at all the beautiful pictures and illustrations. All my current reading is nonfiction and easy to pick up when I'm in the mood for certain writing.
I don't watch The Food Network like I once did. So many of the shows are all glitz, glamor, and entertainment these days.
But one I do enjoy is Heartland Table and a new season started on Saturday. It is fun to watch and the recipes look delicious. I've already decided to try the swiss chard recipe from this past week.
I love the way silver adds a touch of jewelry to a home. Especially when it is newly polished. I actually like to polish silver as long as it is not too tarnished.
But obviously a lot of people do not like having to polish it, as one can purchase used silver pieces quite often at thrift stores, antique malls, and even Goodwill. That is how I have a collection at very inexpensive prices.
I found a "just the right size" set of hooks at Goodwill for 99 cents recently. Now I have a place for my aprons in the kitchen.
I never intended to collect bowls but over the years I've purchased quite a few, usually at garage sales or while thrifting. Each bowl fits a specific purpose. Like a tool. I've tried to explain that to my husband.
The really big bowl at the bottom of the stack has been with me since the 1990s and was my pricier purchase at the time. But it has served the family well since then.
Once in awhile her inner jungle kitty personality escapes and we find her in the oddest places.
