The above photo is located in the corner of my kitchen. My sister gave me the chickens. These chickens are special because I do not have to feed them or clean up after them, ha ha. The little table and stool/chair were made by my father-in-law when our daughter was about a two years old. At the time, it was the perfect size for a tiny child. She used to sit and eat her breakfast while watching Sesame Street (free babysitter). I would blitz through the house like a mad woman trying to clean as much as possible. If I completed all of my morning tasks, I would be able to knit during her nap or playtime. This excellent cleaning strategy never worked with my son.
Yesterday was such a lovely day outside. On my walk with Frodo, I soaked in the bit of sun that peaked out and took pleasure in knowing that spring is here and winter has gone (sigh). Maybe next year we will have snowfall? I have given up for this year-it's just too warm. My goal this spring is to be outside- weather permitting-every day before the heat waves start. Then I will be hibernating again.
Today I'm going to recycle and while I am there, I'll be "thrifting" for some books. The recycling center has a huge bin of hard and soft covered books. I find it amazing what people will throw out. Especially classic books! Once finished, I'll be making the rounds at the thrift stores. I don't have anything in particular in mind. Just a bit of aimless browsing before lunch.
What are you going to do today?
