Cosy Country lunches...
The weather can make you appreciate warmth and cosy like nothing else. I found out that I have a couple of bulging discs. Physical therapy is making a wonderful difference in my discomfort (miserable-ness).
I've been crocheting on the walnut pattern throw every day....I try for half an hour or more, and I am getting reacquainted with my spinning wheel. I tire very easily but am determined to gain back a little ground here and there.
The new Magnolia Journal magazine is out now....you know, the one by Chip and JoAnna Gaines and it is really a special issue. I like it and have read it cover to cover. It has great tips for simplifying a wardrobe and yummy looking salad recipes. (plus, other good stuff)
We stopped at a thrift store this afternoon and happened on a buy one get 2 free. Yippee, that was fun. My favorite purchase was a James Herriot book about his lovely England. 'James Herriot's Yorkshire'. I've always liked his books, but I thought the tv series about his vet's life a bit dull. Maybe I didn't stick with it long enough.....anyway, there's nothing like a book. And I love the way he always told the bad right along with the good stuff. (with humor, of course..which is easier to do after the fact than during, for sure). Wishing you a happy week-end,
Psalm 119:50 'This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy word hath quickened me.'
