What? Eat by the computer?
Yep, this is what I do... eat in front of the computer and read email, blogs or watch something on YouTube. I'm by myself at meals and I would rather catch some minutes online than eat at the counter or table and read.
TV is out. I gave it up in favor of the computer. I should feel ashamed, but I don't.
I was raised in the '40's and '50's and homemaking skills were high on the list of must do's. I'm a failure. I must admit I do get a thrill out of setting and decorating a table. The love of glassware, china, fine linen, and silverware is still there. Sigh...
Hooray for the wind! I got rid of almost all the boxes on the porch and hopefully I will finish them and the rest tomorrow. I have to... it is going to rain on Sunday. Wow... rain!
While I was sorting through a box I noticed this leaf whipping around in the breeze. I love it when leaves get caught up in spider webs and dangle in the wind.
Autumn is almost here and I have lots of dried out leaves to prove it. I lucked out taking this photo because I managed to capture Morgan back by the trees getting a drink and a Buff wandered over to check out what I was doing. Treats?
It is fun finding things I forgot were packed away. I decided to keep the new snowman cookie jar, the old time salt and pepper shakers, and the old plates (made in France) that came from a '40's hotel in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
I love the smaller size of these plates and the shape of the soup bowl. They don't hold as much food which helps with portion control and that helps keep my weight down. Besides, I like them 'cause they are pretty and a friend gave them to me.
