Life is quite quiet here today...
the clock sounds tick tock
birdsong is audible through the single paned 100 year old Humble Bungalow windows
sitting here with a hot mug of tea in hand
until it's time to begin making dinner.
The Humble Bungalow living room
as it is today.
Morris arts and crafts chairs
two mica lamps
our reading corner
my chair is smaller
it's the one with the linen pillow.
I should have moved the linen tea towel that I flung on the counter
life in the Bungalow is not perfect or immaculate
nor will it ever be...
Pepper in one of her quieter moments
she has been "in trouble"
she was exploring the skinny plate rail in the family room
she leapt off onto the cabinet
that held a lovely vintage West German vase
let's just say Pepper is on the de-cluttering bandwagon.
Mother has been feeling poorly for the past month.
I have been back and forth with her on the phone and visiting
took her some tulips and had a cheer up session with her...
she's off to the doctor this week.
These tulips were a gift to lovely daughter
I took some just like these to Mother.
I bought some hyacinths
and they are sweetly scenting the air.
I'll plant the bulbs outside after the blooms fade.
I am so in love with white flowers.
In the hour before supper this week I had a desperate moment...
what to make for dinner when I don't feel like cooking?
I had some leftover chili which I covered with mashed potatoes
added some salsa and grated mozzarella cheese
baked for 45 minutes and dinner's ready.
It was surprisingly good.
What do you serve for supper when you feel uninspired or too lazy to cook?
