This mug full of dark chocolates (that I happily understand are actually good for you) are all I’ve done in the way of Valentine decor. I doubt I’ll do anything else.
I was standing in front of one of my bookshelves looking for a book to read, and came across this one, No Safe House.
I finished my evening chores, had a shower, and settled down to read. Hours later I was still completely immersed in this book plot. I read more than half of it. I could hardly put it down to sleep.
I don’t think I’ve ever read anything by this author. But boy, can he write a thriller! Now I want to see what else he’s written.
The other day I got sick of my hand held shower nozzle being clogged up, so I put a big baggie around the nozzle that I laid down in the bath tub.
Then I poured a whole bottle of white vinegar into the bag and left it overnight.
The next day when I took my shower, all the little holes were spouting water out just like when it was new. So many wonderful things you can do with vinegar!
I put all my cutting boards in this basket. It was given to me some time ago. Just couldn’t find the right thing to put in it.
I rather like the texture of the basket below the multi-colored bamboo place mats I tacked up to the cabinet doors last year. I still haven’t tired of looking at them.
I added a folded red and white fabric napkin for a little color and contrast.
The other day I gathered all the colored bottles I’d been keeping outdoors, and put them in the sink to soak to get the dirt off them.
I put them back here in the window. I kind of missed them there. I guess it’s kind of like “viewing the world through rose-colored glasses.”
Since the inception of the TV show, The Blacklist, I’d been watching every episode.
I watched only the first episode this year. After that I decided I’d really rather read before bedtime. It seems much easier to fall asleep after reading.
