Five Things about Me . . .
Yes, that is quinoa. NOT a fan. I can hardly stand to look at the stuff. The sight of it makes me want to gag. It's that little tail thing it has going . . . reminds me of worms. Little tiny pin worms. I don't care if it is good for you. I don't care if it's a super food, super protein, whatever. I don't care how popular it gets/is. I am not eating it. End of. You will never see any recipes using it on my page. Nope. Nope. Nope.
And yes, that is the first thing in a five things about me post. ☺
I love gingham. Red and white is my favourite, followed by blue and white . . . but brown and white also does it for me.
Sorry I couldn't resist. Which leads me to fact three . . .
I have a wierd sense of humor. I like irony. I like cheesy jokes. I am not into dirty jokes. I am not into racial jokes or jokes that poke fun at a certain culture etc. I think life itself can be quite funny, and I don't mind laughing at myself. I will not make a joke at the expense of others. That is not funny.
I have a taste for all things romantic and feminine. I love, LOVE flowers and lace. Pretty linens. Pretty dresses, etc. Vintage linens. Roses. Antique Lace. Pearl buttons. White washed furniture, looking well used. The colour pink. All things Potter . . . That's me. (I've seen the film Miss Potter about 10 times.)
I love cardigans and twin sets. If I could have one in every colour, I would. I used to have two twin sets a long time ago. One was burgundy and the other sage green. The sweater tops had pearl embroidery around the neckline, and the cardigans pearl buttons. I loved them. I wore them out. (I also used to have a gingham skirt that I loved and wore out.)
And that's my five things about me this week. I am betting we have something in common.
A thought to carry with you through today . . .
Make an adventure of all that you do,
Do it with humour and zest,
Looking at life from the broad point of view,
Giving your utmost and best.
In The English Kitchen today . . . Sour Cream Mac and Cheese. Rich and delicious.
Have a fabulous Thursday! Wherever you go and whatever you do, stay safe and don't forget . . .
