she has recently returned from Auvilar, France where she and her husband have been staying for the past few months.

Poppies in France
has given me permission to post these images
now hanging here
in our Humble Home.
masquerading as a necklace
my hair has grown
and I have been using a flat iron
I am able to put it in a ponytail
which I love
especially for Yoga
and working in the garden and around the bungalow.
the guests have departed
the Christmas tree has been taken down
decorations are stowed
the washing machine is whirling
the dryer humming
tea is at hand
the house feels empty
New Years Eve highlights...
Humble Bungalow Lemon Drop
Table before the New Years Eve Crabfest
served with melted butter and lemon wedges
Arugula salad with crumbled bacon, grated Manchego
and a vinagrette made by Cheryl
a recipe for success
Wine Poached Pears
served with Coconut Milk Bliss ice cream
one of our dinner guests brought this yummy dessert.
On the horizon...
reading the many books that are on my "to read" shelf
shopping for lacy unmentionables
bits and bobs
Hope that your new year is off to a great start!
