These things are on shelves above my sewing machine, which is why I call it the sewing room. The thing is I don't sew. Oh I can make pillows and bags, what ever works with a straight stitch. Needless to say I have a lot of pillows. Oh yea, I make hand embroidered pin cushions. There is one in the picture. So no matter where you go in my house you can probably find one of those.
House is all out of order, getting new carpet and furniture for the living room. So everything that was in the living room is in another room. Kitty is very confused. Should be back in order next week.
Snow here this morning.

Still mild here today but I guess the cold is coming back with snow this week. I went for groceries this morning. So now I have to go and stand in front of the fridge and see what sounds good for dinner. I brought up a stack of old magazines this morning and cut out lots of things for my paper collection. I have lots of time in the mornings to get things done because kitty wakes me up around six. You think after your kids are grown and gone, that you could sleep in as long as you want, but then you get a Kitty. But that's ok, I like mornings.

See the little bell in the picture? That was in my Uncle's grocery store in the 1950's. He would be off stocking shelves or whatever and if someone was ready to check out they would ring the bell. Can you imagine leaving the cash register these days?
Well off to play house, my favorite thing.

Cold here today but no snow. Had two feet about a week ago but all gone now.
The book I'm reading now is "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall". By Anne Bronte. I finished "Wuthering Heights" by her sister Emily Bronte, and I had read "Jane Eyre", by Charlotte Bronte. So I think I was fair to the Bronte girls.
Ok, that would be it for today.

The box on top of the little chest is my recipe box, the little chest I got a long time ago at a garage sale, I keep little silver spoons in there.
Rain and 50 today, so there goes the snow. Cleaned out the fridge this morning. Besides the reg. housework that is always there, I try and do at least one extra thing. Unless I have had lots of coffee and then anything can happen. Like ordering cook books.

Lots of snow here and cold as it is in a lot of the states. Staying in today. Lots to read, and I was thinking of making up some mail art to send out. Baked chicken for dinner and baked potatoes.
I'm a morning person , up at about six or seven and that's when I put in about three hours of housework, then most of the rest of the day putter about. One of my Daughters is a morning person, the other one is a late day person. My son is a morning person and Richard is a morning person. I was pretty sure you all needed to know that.
That would be it for today.

Looks like the next few days we will be getting lots of snow, and they say 50 mile per hour wind gusts.
Went to the thrift yesterday, haven't been there in a while. I got a really pretty little crystal vase. A new salt and pepper set, and three blouses. Washed and Ironed those this morning, the blouses not the vase and salt and pepper set. Those I put in the dishwasher. Also a nice collection of cards to put in my writing basket.
Guess I will make ravioli with Moz. cheese on for dinner. That's easy. Maybe a fruit salad.
