There. Done. Out with the old, and all of that.
We do have a snow day here, thanks to a pile of snow that fell overnight. Phillip's feeling much better today and has been up and around (he's laying down now) and Thomas is napping while Adam shovels the driveway.
A few things I've come across recently:
I just borrowed this book from the library about Tasha Tudor. I love it. I looked her up on Wikipedia after I finished reading it, and it turns out (if Wikipedia is correct) that she was divorced twice and disinherited three of her children. As much as I love her lifestyle and all of the beauty in it (oh, the beeswax candle making outdoors looks so great!), it makes me a little bit sad that that is how those relationships turned out. Obviously, I don't know anything about the circumstances; that's just what I thought.
Oh, and speaking of children...
just like this one) in excellent condition that I'm waiting for a ribbon for. I didn't realize how hard the keys are to strike - I don't know if my student will have much success with it. But since I bought it myself, I'll get to play with it! More pictures once the ribbon arrives. I took these ones last week, when P was himself.
I also borrowed this book, and am loving it, too. It's so detailed and matter-of-fact in how the Nearings built and set up their farm, and they were certainly sure of their convictions. I'm reading about the building of their stone house right now. Fascinating.
I am in love with this simple kitchen.
Aren't these eggs beautiful?
I hope that you make a point to find something beautiful to appreciate around you today.
