Still working on decluttering: Got a bit more done recently, and I do mean just a bit. These items were packed up, along with a large shopping bag full of things went home with my daughter, several other bags full to GW and another bag of clothes that were to washed out/worn went to the garbage.
Time to get the hard hats out again: It is that time of the year again. The squirrels are setting up in the Hickory nut tree every afternoon, dining al fresco style and dropping their debris. Bad time of the day to be under that tree.
Did it again: Went to DT to pick up a couple of things and ended up with 30 something things at checkout. They had restocked the faux swiff. cloths, and those yummy piroulines that I posted about here . Also stocked up on several other items like alum. disposable cooking containers, cheap garbage bags, etc.
Just Curious: Did anyone else watch "Secrets of the Manor House" on PBS? I did and as much as I love Victorian and Edwardian period jewelry, I can't image living during that era. It seems that either you had it or you did not and there was not a lot in between. I am one that if I wanted to show up at the table in casual attire, I would want to do so without raising eyebrows, eyes rolled and being gossiped about by the scullery maids and other household staff.
In my "younger years" I use to think I wanted to own/live in a grand castle or manor house. Not any more! First I could not afford to do so, the maintenance and utilities would be horrendous, and there is no way I would want a full time staff hovering over me.
I do enjoy seeing movies/documentaries about the era, and I am looking forward to the new episodes of Downton Abbey.
Craving Noodles: In one of my "craving noodles" modes again. Don't know why I do this periodically, but I do - may be the need of carbs. I have been trying to be careful of my diet for some time and one thing is restricting carbs and I think that is what is causing the craving. Anyway I have been craving some well seasoned favored/tasty noodles for a while now , so I am off to dig around in the pantry to see what pasta I can doctor up for lunch.
Just another Dab of This and That ramble.
