Hello friends, How are you on this middle-of-the-week day?
The relentless rain is.... well, relentless. We have set a new record for rainfall in 24 hours for yesterday and probably today as well. On to more pleasant subjects....
I've mentioned often that my middle son manages a complex that consists of town houses and an apartment building. The tenants, especially in the apartments, are mostly older people ( haha...like my age??) and they really appreciate him. They often send him home with gifts of homemade jams etc. which is exactly what happened today. He asked me if I was interested in having them since his little family wasn't nearly done the last jams. Of course I said yes. We have toast every morning and although we make our jam it's a treat to taste jam made by someone else.
(My old flour sifter is in the picture just because. I never have used it but I like the way it looks.)
In the lobby of the apartment there is a table where people put anything they don't want, often books or magazines they've finished and wish to pass on to someone else. Sometimes there will be dishes and this pretty saucer was up for grabs. My son knows my love of all things china so he brought it home to see if I wanted it. It just so happened that one of my "orphan" cups is a good match. The cup is made by Paragon and the saucer by Adderley. To my eyes they make a good enough match.
I hope you're enjoying your Wednesday afternoon/evening.. Many of you are in time zones later than I so when I finally get to my computer the day is well spent for you. I almost never even start my computer before the afternoon. Too tempting to sit and read blogs instead of doing housework!!
Thanks for visiting today.
