|I moved my button collection from a vintage tin to this pretty glass jar I had tucked away to "use someday".|
So for the most part, I've stayed inside except the icy trek to the end of the gravel lane to get the mail. I've been cutting through my neighbor's yard where there is only snow until the sun finally melted the ice off the gravel.
Christopher took a comp day from work yesterday to rest and work on an app he is developing for his church. He is feeling better but has not completely regained his health so I'm glad he took a day off. He offered to buy my lunch so I stopped by his house and we went to a favorite diner off of the highway. I forget at times how much I love talking to my kids. :)
So... here is what has been happening in my world recently.
My review of Fierce Convictions can be found... here.* I thought it quite remarkable. Oh, I was asked if it would be offensive to Catholics? Not at all, Hannah More (a member of the Church of England but also Evangelical) was one of the few people at the time who was friends with both Catholics and Protestants. There was a lot of animosity in England between these two, if you have studied history!
I purchased Summer Wine Country with Amazon credit (thank you!). It is quite inexpensive, although most copies come from the UK. It is a must have book for fans of Last of the Summer Wine with gorgeous photos of that part of England. It also contains short exerpts from Cleggy's letters (written by his alter ego, Roy Clarke) to his Polish pen pal. ;) Info... here.*
I got out one of my all time very favorite cookbooks, again. Homemade by Clodaugh McKenna. You may have seen her Irish cooking/travel program on PBS. Info... here.*
