Good morning from The Humble Bungalow...
it is Sunday and I am baking a loaf of sourdough bread.
The bread has become part of my weekly routine...
my husband seems to be enjoying the bread.
I loved it toasted with Bonne Maman raspberry confiture.
Life here has been quite quiet...
Having hurt my back, so for the past few weeks, I have been in a lot of pain.
Am dealing with it by attending therapeutic Yoga classes for the back.
Going for slower, shorter walks and taking Aleve to help me sleep.
I have a huge amount of empathy for people who live with chronic pain.
I am new to pain.
Shorter Walks mean fewer steps...
averaging about 5500
so have gained a few pounds in these past few weeks.
Salads to the rescue...
simple to make and very satisfying.
Lots of chewing and low in WW points.
Here are the tete a tetes planted out front in The Humble Bungalow garden.
Thank goodness that the deer don't eat them.
We filled in some gaps recently when the plants were on sale at the garden centre.
They are so sweet...cheap and cheerful!
Lucy By The Sea by Elizabeth Strout is a powerful book...
set in Maine during Covid Lucy Barton shares her everyday experiences.
The emotions and insights are very real...
Perhaps one of Strout's best books.
The story has stayed with me.
I highly recommend it.
Very casual Papillon denim jumper...
found at the shop Suzanne's in the mall.
Seen here in the change room with my jeans on underneath!
Not the way I will wear it when I get home :-))
~ Summer wardrobe staple ~
White tee and white capri leggings
blue suede sandals
Great for running errands or a beach walk.
With warmer weather in the forecast
we should all have a basket or bag to carry market staples and finds.
Which is the perfect segue...
Which is the perfect segue...
speaking of finds
Or speaking of Papillons...
can you see one here on this antique transferware plate?
The crazing and cracks add to the "charm" of this plate.
It has History...
Am I the only one who is attracted to the imperfections?
Do you embrace the "wabi sabi" in old things?...
Suppose that could stretched to include people too :-))
None of us are perfect...
(now there's a profound thought to contemplate)
Call it homework..
Go forth and look for the imperfect in your week and report back.
On that note I shall close this post...
~ Be Well and Be Kind ~
The beauty is in the crazing...
can we extend that idea a wee bit and include wrinkles on faces?
Thank you for stopping by...
I appreciate you taking the time to read my wee blog.
I am so sorry to hear that you have been in pain. I hope that it goes on its way soon.
I am sorry to read that you're dealing with back pain. It really takes the umph out of one. Hopefully, you'll be back to your usual energy in time.
Imperfections are certainly part of life, and those crazed dishes have a history that makes them even more beautiful. Like people!
Thanks for the book reminder.This has been on my TBR list for a long time. Happy Springtime!xo
Each day it feels a bit better...thank you Susan :-))
I think I am finally on the mend...it was a rough couple of weeks to begin with but Aleve has helped and at least i am able to sleep at night again.
Lovely sunny days we are having here...a great start to Spring!
Hope that you enjoy the story...I always look forward to reading her books. I hope there is another one on the way!
ummm..i kinda hate that you have lovely flowers...got 6 more inches of snow todau! Enjoying spring virtually
