I was sitting at the table this morning eating strawberries and reading blogs when I happened to look into the bowl. Small white lumps were floating in my strawberries. Huh? They can’t be getting moldy already! I just thawed them out yesterday! A closer inspection revealed a lump with black dots. Eeeeeew. Another lump appeared with orange on it. Wait. Orange? WTF? I turned my light box back on, shoved my glasses up where they belonged, and stuck the bowl in the light. Oh-for-pete’s-sake. ***head to table*** I had eaten eggs for breakfast and was using the same spoon. Egg bits had soaked off the spoon while it sat in the juice. Mornings are not my best time.
This appealed to me today. An attitude reminder from Robert Louis Stevenson:
“There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy. By being happy we sow anonymous benefits upon the world.”
Life At Our House
The ‘big event’ here today was my baking bread (sourdough). Unless of course you want to count my succumbing to a chocolate craving and going out to buy a stash of Sixlets. Here’s the bread:
It’s been out about 30 minutes now so when my tea is ready I’m going to lop off a chunk and slather it in butter. Can’t wait.
Fur Babies and Other Friends
Hey! Saver of Bugs! About those peacock feathers…
While eye shine normally annoys me, I think this is very accurate showing of our ‘witch’ cat.
Is it dinner? Is it? Is it?
Out in the Yard
You’ll notice I changed my header. I’ve decided to try to put some small picture from in the yard as my header every time I post.
Today’s pic is a very small pansy that I found in a planter in my yard.
A tiny determined seed survived the winter. And despite a less than ideal beginning to life, has produced a beautiful flower for all to enjoy.
