Have you noticed how often my posts end up being called "this and that"? I'm often stumped for a title since I rarely have a "theme". I guess my life consists of a lot of this and that.
Tea, flowers, and books are such a big part of my days. This red rose is still from my DILs rose bed. She'll be back in a few days and then I'll keep my hands off.
I have many tea cups but Old Country Roses remains a big favourite. I have the complete dinner set for 13 settings. Many of them were gifts from my mom who also had this pattern.
With all the tomatoes ripening I thought I'd make a small batch of salsa. Luckily my son had a couple of hot peppers in his fridge so I didn't even have to run to the store. I added a chopped up peach which I've done before and we like that. Those are shadows on the tea towel, not dirt. just sayin'
Another rustic pie. This time it was apple.
Last of all I want to show you three books I got from the library. I finished "Fancy Feet" and I started the Mitch Albom one The First Phone Call from Heaven. I enjoyed his book Tuesdays with Morrie but that was not fiction. I hope I'll enjoy his fiction too.
