Today, after accomplishing my very low Saturday cleaning goals, I went shopping at the local Kohl’s and picked up an assortment of candles for the fireplace in the living room. When we moved here last October, we had hoped that the fireplace would be usable, but it turned out that it needs too much work.
Last night at a co-workers house, I noticed candles in the their fireplace and liked how it looked. So today, I swept out and cleaned up the fireplace. If this is too exciting for you, I apologize.
I spent a couple of hours reading on the back porch and took a few photos.
My husband had taken chicken out for dinner and he was in the kitchen chopping onions. And when I came in, the house smelled heavenly, with the scent of onion and garlic wafting through the rooms and was that tomato and basil I smelled? My husband seems to enjoy cooking and tonight we’re eating early because it’s a chemo night for him.
Life ain’t so bad.
Tonight I sat down to rotini pasta covered with a chicken marinana that had a kick to it that made me raise my eyebrows. My husband noticed it too and admitted he put something in there he shouldn’t have, but he couldn’t remember what it was. Although it was a bit hot, I loved it!
Thanks to everyone who visits this site, especially to those that follow my blog and who leave comments. You make it all worth it. Two years ago my husband gave me a Nikon D80 for my birthday and then my son downloaded Photoshop into my laptop and I found a passion that I’d thought I had lost.
I have always loved photography. Maybe now it’s time to learn a bit more about a subject that fascinates me so.
Until tomorrow then, my friends . . .
