Kate Atkinson weaves a great tale...
I've got a super busy week ahead of me
so I am not too sure if I'll have much time to read, let alone sit at my computer.
Today in the wee crannies of space and time I was able to write this quick post...
The sunshine was streaming in through the windows and my goodness they are filthy!
Our Christmas cactus is re blooming...and it feels like Spring has Sprung.
Mr. HB mowed the lawn yesterday and it is only mid February.
The kitchen looks calm but don't be fooled
I have been hard at it churning out soups and casseroles for my family and friends.
~ Food Is love ~
especially when you take it to those who are preoccupied with bigger and more important life events than cooking.
Mr. HB and I ripped up the disgusting wall to wall carpet in our bedroom and discovered a very distressed and paint splattered fir floor underneath...
I spent an afternoon on my hands and knees scraping the paint off and we bought three really inexpensive rugs from Home Depot until such time as we do the complete renovation...maybe next year?
Chester insists that bunny be upstairs instead of in the grand children's toy box downstairs!
The minute I put bunny back he drags him up so I gave in and have placed bunny on the bed.
Hope you are keeping warm and cozy particularly if you are reading this back east under the blanket of snow.
Speaking of cozy this is my newest scarf which does not have any tags so I don't know where it was made or what the fabric content might be...it feels like felted wool and I wore it out to dinner on Valentine's Eve.
I bought myself a new lipstick.
The shade is pinker than I usually wear.
The cosmetics clerk at the Pharmasave on The Avenue said it would add a splash of colour.
Who doesn't need a little perk up at this time of year?
My hair is in a growing out stage...
I've decided to let it grow a bit longer so it's not looking it's best right now.
I have an appointment in a few weeks.
My hairdresser is so clever with her scissors
that I am betting that she can style and shape it so I don't go crazy while it grows.
Oh and my "new glasses" had to be returned as the coating on them was not sealed properly and they were getting so scratched that it looked foggy day inside and out 24/7!
but I won't complain too loudly
as it is minor compared to what some people are dealing with...
and my heart goes out to them in sympathy.
Maybe this week you could do something nice for someone in need.
I'll try to check back later if I get a chance...
but as I mentioned it's going to be a busy week ahead.
