in the bedroom

ah. its night time again. my favorite...rooibos tea, kids in pjs, warm fire, home and away. books and books and books. crochet time. quiet quiet peace. lamps lit glowing glimmering resting me. frankencense can be smelled. one more week with these beautiful books, then the librarian says i have to send them on. send them on? oh. is that how the library works.

i am tossing around ideas. a winter greenhouse garden. a japanese double gauze bamboo quilt. what to make with a wool/cashmere trenchcoat that cost me a dollar. how to increase my energy and circulation. eating better. keeping a cleaner and tidier home. thinking of my father in his little foot plaster who is sitting on the sofa bored stiff he says. my 5 year old says to send him some sticker books. he says now that's entertainment for hours...

  4. I LOVE your 5 year old! What a great idea he had! I like the look of that book titled Handmade Home, I'll have to look that one up.

    I'm a night time person too... I've tried to persuade my body otherwise, but it doesn't work. I love owls, and really am a night owl myself.

  13. Maybe you should re-borrow the books....they all look very interesting.

    No I didn't freeze the chocolate......all I did was melt the melts, pipe it on the baking paper, wait til it was nearly set then stand it up around the cake. I suspect that this kind of cake wouldn't do so well in the middle of summer!

    Thanks for visiting!
