As I move throughout this week, I find my mind wandering to a few special things in my life. Today I bring you those lovelies I’m in to this week…
The Bela Lugosi lilies in bloom in my garden. Who doesn’t love a day lily named after the actor who played Dracula?
These vintage dishes my mom found for me at Salvaged by Sonya, a fabulous antique shop in downtown Rockford.
The Pioneer Woman’s Pots de Creme. There are no words.
My new yogurt incubator. I purchased my kit at this store, but you can also order the exact same one from this website.
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I have been purposefully taking my time in reading this book because quite honestly, I don’t want it to end. You know those pieces that you are so sad once they are completed because you feel like you have just lost a friend? That is how I feel about this book. It is truly just a lovely tale.
This Monday morning I am grateful for…
~a wonderful vacation to the Northwoods of Wisconsin. (Lots more to come in tomorrow’s post.)
~those family members and close friends who pitched in to help keep the Fagan suburban homestead running in our absence 🙂
~Downton Abbey. Oh my. I have recently discovered this show, and have been devouring the DVDs ever since. It’s like a great British novel brought to life. What could be better?
~the leader of our book club for choosing The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society for our next read. I am thoroughly enjoying being transported to the isle of Guernsey in the 1940’s each and every time I unfurl the pages of this novel.
~peas and beans just bursting in our home garden.
~a first hand learning experience for my girls. We plan to head to the local food pantry this week with our first donation from our school garden.
~the Mason jars strewn across my countertop, just waiting to be filled with all kinds of canned deliciousness.
~the fermentation frenzy that is about to begin this week…woohoo! Kombucha, yogurt and kraut oh my!
~all of you gathered here today! Wishing you all much happiness and health this week!
