Great Soup

I make this soup.

It's really great.

I got the recipe from a friend like 20 years ago.

Did I mention it's really great soup?

I've made it 4 or 5 times a year ever since.

I make it every time I want a really great soup.

Chicken Ooh-la-la

I learned a few things today.

Chicken is hard to photograph.

It's just gross.

Maybe fried chicken would look good.

But fried chicken is time consuming. 

And anyway, I don't know how.

An Impromptu DIY

It's January 22 and I'm already disorganized.

Why do I do this to myself? 

I know that if I waited to do something until I WAS organized I would never get anything done.

I'm going to talk about this some more another time...

But for now I'll make a little confession...

I haven't quite finished putting away the Christmas decorations.

Actually,

I still have a little mess left over from when I put UP the decorations.

I blame this on what happens when you travel over the holidays.

Great as it can be, 

it messes me up a bit.

The other thing that happens when you travel - 

Unending daydreaming.

Day dreaming of all the things I'm going to do when I get home.

A while back I came across this picture...

White Winter Mantel

We have some things to discuss.




First.

Our tire saga is almost settled. 

The final repairs/replacements have been taken care of.

When we get the check - which has been promised - I'll let you know.

Vintage Dresser in Primer Red and Coco

I'm lucky we didn't get arrested.

We picked this dresser (and another one) up at 6:00 AM on a Tuesday morning.

They were the last two items in a POD.

Just waiting for us.

In the dark and quiet.

And it was foggy.

In a really nice neighborhood.

A Vintage Step-stool Gets Dressed Up

Do you have a friend who picks trash for you?

I do.

And I'm grateful.

She's picked me some really cool stuff.

But occasionally she picks stuff for herself.

Gasp!

Gasp twice!



Sometimes it's the right thing to do though.

Her keeping stuff for herself

But sometimes I know it isn't right.





And I have to wait patiently for a year or two while it sits in her garage until she comes to her senses and realizes that the right thing to do is give the trash to its rightful owner.

That would be me.
