Winter's Last Gasp?
That is what I am hoping today is bringing us. Flooding rains, icy cold wind and quickly falling temperatures. I have a big pot of chili simmering in the stove and am preparing a salad to take to a women's gathering at our church this evening. I was puttering around the house today and stopped to think about these suitcases. A dusty shop find a year ago, they now sit proudly in our living room. I often wonder just who Mrs. Thompson is, or was. What was her first name? Obviously beginning with the letter M, was it Mary? Mildred? Myrtle? Where did these suitcases accompany her? A Spring visit to Florida by bus? A car trip out West to see the Rocky Mountains? Perhaps she even ventured across the wide Atlantic Ocean to Europe. Did she spend a week on a lovely ship or get there more quickly by airplane? I will never know the answers to these questions but it is such fun to ponder them, especially on a cold, gray day like today. I just had to show you my new kitchen light fixture! I bought it at a JC Penney's close out sale....a year ago! I am a procrastinator did you say? Hmmm...but my brother came over and put it up for me last week and I adore it. Something so simple can change the entire look of a space. It *lightened* my mood today! A fun new item and a sweet brother who helped me add it to my home. Now that is something special to bring a bit of warmth to a dreary Tuesday!
