The pretty pink flowers are bursting forth from the trees that line the boulevards and streets of our city.
Their sweet subtle fragrance wafts as one saunters along
slowly savouring the scent.
This is just another example of "getting my happy on."
I look everyday for something that makes me happy.
I rarely have to look too far...
on dark days I have to invent my own happy.
Those are days when I brew a pot of imported tea in a special cup and saucer
or soak in a tub of scented bath salts.
There are many many ways to make the most of a "not so great" day.
Change is afoot...
I got my hair cropped
it has got to be wash and wear until I can hold a blow dryer again.
There is good news!
She worked on my upper back and shoulder for an hour this week.
There was tenderness while she was giving me my treatment and a few hours after but when I woke up the next morning I could move my arm more and I felt less pain.
I made an easy dinner that was so tasty I thought you might like to try it...
busy days beg for simple suppers
I boiled up turnips, spuds and carrots until they were soft.
Then mashed them up set aside to keep warm.
In a cast iron fry pan I sauteed onions until they were soft.
Added a bit of butter and popped in some super skinny pork chops.
Cooked until no longer pink and popped in a few tablespoons of Bonne Maman Apricot Jam.
Reduce the heat and let the flavours mingle before serving.
Hope you like the recipe.
I bought a Tribal Turquoise necklace from an Etsy shop.
I had been looking on Pinterest and pinning gorgeous examples and found a smaller scale one which I thought would look pretty peeking out from the collar of my new to me crisp white shirt.
It was sold to me unpolished and I am thinking that it will stay that way.
I also have a soft faded Gap light wash denim jacket which it would pair well with my white jeans for summer.
I prefer authentic jewelry over most costume pieces.
I have a few items that are cheap and cheerful.
One cannot always justify the expense of fine gems.
There are day to day living expenses...
and one does need to be mindful of the budget!
I do love vintage and hand crafted pieces that are interesting, unusual and make a statement.
So that is about all that is new here in The Humble Bungalow.
Thank you for popping by for a wee visit and a catch up.
Have a Fabulous Weekend!
