Deep indigo grape hyacinths are a welcome pop of colour.
We have quite a few of these in our front garden.
Thankfully the deer do not nibble these sweet flowers.
How are you managing during the "shelter at home" order?
Are you busy or bored?
Do you get "dressed up" or have a PJ Days?
Keeping quite busy with home and gardening tasks.
Baking bread every few days...
to accompany homemade soups and stews.
We were down to a few cups of flour and we hit the jackpot yesterday
by finding 10kg package of flour
it felt like a lottery win!
(We are not taking anything for granted.)
I'll be able to keep baking bread for the next few months with this supply.
I purchased an antibacterial spray from Nezza Naturals.
I've been wiping the counters, light switches and door handles.
We have a few lilies blooming in The Humble Bungalow Garden.
Planted these a few years ago and they pop up early each Spring.
Such a delightful dainty little flower
which reminds me of The Flying Nun's hat
do you remember Sally Field in this television show?
Love the variegated foliage of the Trillium
When the flower is in bloom it is a dark magenta shade.
I sat on the front porch this past weekend and enjoyed the sunshine and birdsong.
Tapio Wirkkala Ultima modernist mug made in Finland.
Darling daughter has a large collection of Ultima
which I covet!
Timo Sarpeneva Finnish Festivo icy candlesticks.
Baked banana bread and pasta were delivered to our son and the grandchildren.
We waved at each other through the windows and they came out on the front porch while we stood at the bottom of the stairs.
Later we Face-Timed with them
the kids were in fine spirits when they
demonstrated a dance routine that they were working on!
Thank goodness for the internet to help us stay connected.
Loving this Lemongrass Tea Tree soap
the scent is divine and the sudsy soap makes it easy to keep up with the necessary hand washing.
With all this hand washing I need to moisturize my hands.
This cream absorbs quickly and protects my hands in between washes.
I apply and small amount at tea time when I sit to read my book.
Hellebore blooms are not deer food.
~ Vintage Enamel ~
Bread tin and colander just part of the small collection in our laundry room.
All is calm...
the ironing has been done
(such a soothing task.)
Clothes are washed and hung to dry.
Counters washed ~ floor swept.
Feeling in control of my own home
is just one part of how I am keeping my focus positive.
It's time for lunch and I'm making a simple sandwich.
Will pop the kettle on and brew a pot of tea.
Hope you are finding ways to amuse yourself while you cocoon at home.
