I'm trying to blog more faithfully but not much is happening so I have to resort to trivia. Which may bore you...just saying.
My dear GD Kate gave me this Mary Englebreit calendar for Christmas. It has nice big squares so I have it hanging by the phone so I can write all birthdays, anniversaries, and appointments on it.
I picked up this Snakes and Ladders board at the thrift store. It's thick and heavy and ever so colourful. GS M and I have been playing that game often since I got it. I didn't even think to turn it over before I got it home but then I saw that there was Parcheesi on the other side.
I can't remember all the rules but we manage just fine. For our markers we use chocolate chips. Big ones for him and smaller ones for me. When the game is done he eats them.
Besides playing games with M I've been doing some organizing in my Buttery. I love my old canisters even if they don't match. Maybe even more because of that.
We call this little room a Buttery because before my DH added it to the house we already had a cupboard we called a pantry. Since we couldn't have 2 pantries and not be confused - we needed another term. Apparently in old times a buttery was a store room for bottles of ale and wine. The person who presided over the buttery was called the Butler. Years ago my buttery held not bottles of ale but rather quarts of canned fruit etc.. but now that I no longer can it just serves as a storage room.
The ugly view of the neighbour's 15 foot fence is partially blocked by the stained glass window that hangs in front of the old wood window which we probably picked up beside the road at some time or other. ( Am I the only one who cries STOP THE TRUCK! I SEE A FREE SIGN BY THAT....)
That, my friends, is my trivia for the day .Have a lovely Sunday. The sky was all rosy and peach coloured this evening so that assures us of a clear day which is very welcome.
