This and That
A quick trip to the thrift store resulted in 2 nice finds. The cutting board is made of some wood that even DH doesn't recognize ( bamboo, maybe?) it even has non-slip feet under. The old Watkins vanilla bottle is now being used for vanilla in my kitchen ( after a good washing).
On the subject of washing, I have had this lamb skin, fleece, whatever its proper name is, by the side of the bed so I don't have to step on to the cold wood floor in the morning. It needed a good wash but I was afraid I'd ruin it. It turned out so clean and fluffy. I'll not hesitate to wash it in the future. I did dry it on the little rack though, away from any heat source, just in case.
In the corner of the laundry room there are drying dowels over a heater. You can even see my very short "wash line" under the cupboard.
We were given a bag of shallots today. I can't remember if I've ever used shallots before. I used 2 in a soup I made for supper and they were so pungent they made my eyes water.
That's my post for today. I hope you had a good day. Thanks for popping by.
