Outside My Window. . . Cool! Sunny! Crisp leaves! Lots of little acorns!
I Am Thinking. . . .I know how to make inexpensive meals. For instance, when I bake potatoes, I bake extra & store in the refrigerator (not in the foil, though. My friend told me not to). Then when I need a quick meal I dice them, toss into iron skillet with a bit of heated olive oil or butter, add some minced onion & there you have it: homemade hash-browns! Poach a couple of eggs & there you have it: an easy, peasy breakfast or as it will be tonight: breakfast for dinner!
I Am Grateful. . . that yesterday was a very lazy day for me. The last several weeks have been go, go, go & it was nice to have a lazy day.
From The Kitchen . . . A teapot on the stove. I love my hot tea!
I Am Creating. . . .a neat house . . . didn't do it yesterday.
I Am Going. . . . .to get mama & then we'll both get our hair cut. I'm in the process of growing it out. . . . I can't stand it on my neck in the summer & keep it short. . . . in the winter I can't stand cold air on my neck & need it longer. So. . . . it's at that awkward stage.
I Am Reading . . .Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple: God's Love Manifest in Molecules by Dr. David Stewart.
I Am Hoping . . . . to speed through the household chores.
I Am Hearing . . . clocks ticking & the Eden Pure humming, the washing machine spinning & acorns & branches falling on the metal roof. I don't worry about it, though. The metal is tough & the walls are even tougher. I think I've mentioned that the walls appear to be petrified. For real. Isn't that something?
Around The House . . .A bed to make, dishes to put away & dog hair to eliminate!
I Am Wearing. . . Oh. You don't want to know. Really. You don't.
I Am Thinking . . .today might be a good day to take pix of the beautiful foliage.
I Am Wondering . . . if I should take pix or clean house!
One Of My Favorite Things. . .Cool, crisp, sunny days.
Something You May Not Know About Me. . . I used to love lots of color. The other house had red walls, gold walls & gray walls. This house has more neutral walls. And I've removed most of the colored dishes from the open upper kitchen cabinets & replaced them with white ironstone. There is still plenty of color - - - don't get me wrong! Not at all minimalist or completely neutral. I's just now I'd rather see the light & its effect on neutral surfaces. Light & shadows are taking a more important role than color.
About Today's Photo. . .There's nothing like the fragrance of fresh towels. . . . . Here - take a deep breath!
