FOR TODAY, May 30, 2017
Outside my window ...
It is overcast, but looks like it might clear. I hope it does because I have to go into town to pick up my new glasses.
I am thinking ...
I dreamt about Donnie Osmond last night and his wife. They kept following me around handing me buckets of money, lol. Dreams are funny things.
In the kitchen ...
Cheesy Potato Pancakes. They make a great breakfast addition, but would be equally at home with a piece of chicken or steak!
On my "To Cook" list ...
From Kleinworth and Co, Sugar Cookie Strawberry Pies. These look delicious!
Good to know ...
I seriously need to do this . . .
I am creating ...
Sock Monkey Slippers. From Ravelry. Not free, but not expensive either.
Crafters Boutique. Free pattern and tutorial for a cute Mushroom Cottage.
Curio Crafts Room, a free pattern for crochet Peacock's Feather. Makes great bunting.
Cut Out and Keep, a diy Sock Sloth. Cute!
Six Pocket Bag from Love To Sew.
Mrs Deckarts Art Room
I am reading ...
Everyman's England, by Victor Canning
"I travelled from King's Cross to Berwick-on-Tweed in a sleeper on the night express for no other reason than that I like to read in bed and, at the same time, feel that I am being rushed forward at a tremendous speed."
In this series of pen-portraits of England, commissioned by The Daily Mail in the 1930s, Victor Canning vividly conjures the pattern and colour of the 'great fabric of English Life' from Cumberland to Cornwall. His heartwarming, humorous and often irreverent observations of sleepy villages, pastoral scenes and busy industries provide a delightful insight into life between the wars.
Thoroughly delightful! I am really enjoying this vision of a slower, simpler, kinder England . . .
I am looking forward to ...
Getting my new eye glasses!
Dreaming about ...
Simple pearls . . .
Rosary beads . . .
Summer . . . clothes . . .
A jean jacket . . . I've never had one . . .
A comfy chair to curl up in . . .
Something to watch ...
The Keepers on Netflix. Compelling viewing. Who killed Sister Cathy? Brilliant documentary. In parts.
