Remembrance: In Times of Conflict Since the Second World War. Remembering and Praying for Police and Medical Staff too! Remember Them: Today, Tomorrow, Forever!
What happened to January and February? I do know that one thing leads to another, so maybe it is better to never start projects! Have you noticed all the hype to clean out this and clean out that? Well I did and January seemed like a good time to dig in and organize. So I started in my cupboards, taking out everything and labeling and dating everything that went in new. I discovered I had a salt container dated 1989! It looked brand new! Does salt go bad? Well out it went anyway. There were 4 opened bottles of olive oil. How old were they? Which one had I used last? Out they went. I had bags of assorted opened flours. How old were they? They all went. Now to re-stock. I did not realize how many different salts are now available. Dozens and dozens of salt. I went with the smallest container of free flowing salt and big flake sea salt. One bottle of Italian olive oil is now dated and ready for use. All flour is labeled and placed together on the shelf. I thought I was done cleaning, sorting, and labeling.
Then I got an email asking about one of my ancestors. When I looked up the name in my genealogy files I noticed there were lots of new “leaves” on the site. So I jumped in to update the files with pictures, stories, and obituaries. I added well over 1000 names and many, many documents. Well that’s done for awhile. It is a fun and never ending project.
Then I decided to accept a challenge to clean out my freezers and use up the food there; clean out the freezer and re-stock when food was on sale. This is when I hit pay day. I went a month just using up food in my freezer. I had meat, vegetables, stocks, desserts, bread! More flour! At least it was labeled! So I put aside the grocery money and I now have enough for a small getaway vacation! Whala! So winter is almost over for us. My cupboards, files, and freezer are spic and span. And I’m ready for spring! Let’s go to Brugges, Belgium and Amsterdam and see the tulips! Won’t you follow me into SPRING? Enjoy!
Twinkle Joy on the Rue Vignon, Paris, France. Joyeux Noel!
Every child at the Montmartre Christmas Market wanted little pieces of pottery from this man! Even me! Priceless!
Twinkle in Paris. Could it be any better than this? Enjoy the Weekly Photo Challenge!
This picture was taken in Bruges, Belgium. I love this photo of water. The scene reflects serenity, calm, peace, stillness, a simple life. Enjoy!
Two weeks ago I was in my favorite city, Quebec City, Canada! I love this shot in Bas-Ville and the view of the street that is now closed off to vehicular traffic. Notice the cruise ship in the background? Enjoy!
I’m Back! We had the most wonderful time in Quebec City! More posts to come about Thanksgiving weekend in my favorite place! Won’t you join me? I’m ready for fall!
During the sumer months my favorite room is the back porch! I love writing here! Enjoy!
