Snowdrops are poking up through the soil here in The Humble Bungalow Garden!
I am in search of some new varieties...
Those that I particularly seek are the Double Snowdrops and Everest.
My husband and I are planning a trip soon to Salt Spring Island
where we will visit a nursery that sells rare and unusual plants.
I have heard that they may have some snowdrops in pots.
Tencel has been the softest way to add a denim look to my wardrobe.
I love the feel of it next to my skin and the way it drapes is so effortless.
This top has a "BoHo" vibe
the pintucks and woven accents remind me of tops that I wore in the 1970's
we called them peasant tops...
Love the elastic detail at the wrists...
very easy to push up the sleeves when cooking!
Really like the frayed hem on the bottom...
many of you wear ripped jeans but I cannot bring myself to buy or wear them.
(Mom's fashion advice and voice is still loud and clear in my head!)
this ragged edging is a vibe that I can abide.
I found this top at Marshalls for $40
I also bought a pair of black capri Yoga pants as my older ones were faded.
My exercise regime includes Yoga and now some Pilates and weights.
The weights were at the thrift shop on Pender.
I will be working up to heavier ones as I get stronger.
I am going to keep my eyes open for heavier ones at the local thrift shops.
One of the reasons that I decided to add weights is that Mom had osteoporosis...
when she passed away at almost 90, she had 4 fractured vertebrae in her back.
They were very very painful and she suffered quite a bit.
I have osteopenia, which usually progresses to osteoporosis.
Weights can build bone mass as well as toning arms.
I have been working out watching weight training pilates videos on You Tube.
There are so many free sites which makes it easy to add them to my routine.
Do you use weights?
These dark mornings will be replaced by lighter ones very soon.
Spring is not that far off...
snowdrops, hellebores, crocus are blooming in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Daffodils are not far off!
Well I must close for now and get some dinner started...
am making a new recipe that I saw on Instagram

One Pan Spaghetti and Meatballs
I have never tried to make a one pan dish like this so I am hoping it works out!
until next time...
