Happy Friday It’s been a rough week. But I wanted to share some things I have been enjoying lately. The first thing that is a favorite for me is that my sister Pat is feeling a little better. She has been in the hospital for a week and she will hopefully get to go home soon. But she is feeling better and I am so thankful and happy for that. Here are a few other favorites I have had this week.
I love the British version of these two magazines. Country Living and Country Living Home. Unlike a lot of American magazines they are not full of ads. They are a little more costly than some of the magazines you might buy here. But I just love reading these they are beautifully written and the pictures are gorgeous. I usually buy these at Barnes and Noble or Books A Million whenever I am in Knoxville. I did subscribe one year but the cost of postage coming from the UK was outrageous.
Black Jelly Beans!!!!! Do you love them? A lot of people do not like black jelly beans but I love them!!! unfortunately it’s hard to find them except at Easter time. It is not uncommon to see me with stained black lips or tongue this time of year. HEE HEE!!!!
This Olay Complete is my new favorite daily moisturizer. I have tried many many different moisturizers throughout the years and this one is awesome. I put this on every morning before I put on my makeup and it is light and non greasy and it is SPF 15 which is a plus. I have been using this for several months. My face is never dry and never oily. It feels wonderful after I put it on.
I bought this muffin mix a few weeks ago. I use the larger muffin cups with only six muffins in the tin. I forgot to drain the blueberries and I was afraid they would not be good but it made them even moister. They are so yummy. I like to make them and put them in individual bags and keep them in the refrigerator and get them out and heat them when I want one. I know they have a ton of carbs but you just have to splurge every now and then right?
The TRADER JOE’S BEER BREAD, Have you tried it? I don’t get to shop at TRADER JOE’S very often because there is not one near me. The closest one is in Knoxville. My sister and I were up there a couple of weeks ago and I bought this bread mix. I had heard about it but never tried it. It says add beer and butter. You can also add 12 oz. of any carbonated soda instead of the beer. I finally made the bread last week. I used beer but I think I will try soda next time. We liked it. It has a lot of possibilities. You can add other things to it. The price is very reasonable I think only a few dollars for a box which makes one loaf of bread.
Forsythia. I love it so much. I am always drawn to yellow flowers and I love when these precious plants start blooming. They bloom wild around our house and at poppy’s house. You know spring is coming when you see these start to bloom. Although, did you know one of the most popular bits of folklore surrounding forsythia is the saying, “three snows after the forsythia bloom.” I know we had two this year after I saw the first blooms. I certainly hope we are not in for another snow.
I ordered this kitty toy for my kitties. I first saw it on Facebook and then found it on Amazon. I put in the garage for my outside kitties. I guess I was much more excited about this than they were. When I first put it out mama cat sniffed it and rolled the ball a couple of times. Sadie and Izzy would have no part of it. I don’t think I have seen them play with it one time. Oh well I should have known better. They would much rather play with a leaf or run up and down the old dead tree branch in the yard. That is just the most wonderful thing about kitties they’re very unpredictable.
And of course Miss Kitty Kitty is our oldest Kitty baby she is four years old this month and the sweetest kitty you could ever hope to meet. She is queen of all the fur babies and she knows it.
So what are some things you have been loving this week? Share with me.
Love your day your way!!!!
