Two people I've never met read and commented on my blog! Yippee! Thank you ladies for taking an interest. This blogging caper is an interesting thing -I find myself sharing things here that I don't tell other people. So maybe we get to know each other a little - maybe over time a lot. #1 thing to be grateful for today.
I read into the wee small hours of this morning - got to that part of a book when you just can't put it down. As a child I never read. I loved being read to but didn't like the effort of having to do it for myself. I'm so sad about that now - there's a whole world out there that as a child I should have discovered. The first book I ever really got into came straight after Year 12 and before I started university. Who knew that a book could make me weep? Last night I ended up with a scratchy face and a soggy pillow too - what bliss. And lucky that being on holidays means that I can catch up with a nap today if I need to. #2 thing that's made my world a better place today.
I love to cook. Not dinner party stuff - that's enough stress to see me going under, but everyday cooking for my family. I buy lots of cook books, I pour over recipes and buy beautiful ingredients and sometimes items that I like the sound of but don't use...juniper berries for example. I happen upon some magnificent meals and am lucky enough to have family that are eager and adventurous eaters. But last night Sam and I supped on breakfast food...eggs, bacon, grilled tomato and as a treat some mashed potato. And it was DELICIOUS. Isn't it wonderful that the simplest of things can give us absolute pleasure? #3 What a beautiful day!
