I'm off on a short road trip later today and will, therefore, be away from the blogworld until Saturday or Sunday. While I'm away, I'll be thinking of these things that occupied me over the past few days.
A little spring cleaning brought organization to my sideboard drawers, including this big improvement. This antique tea set has rattled every time the bottom drawer was opened - for several years. Now it's nestled in its own basket ~ shhhh.
Also in the 'good' category - this little teacup ornament that was hiding behind some napkin rings. Once forgotten, but now waiting to grace next year's Christmas tree!
On the fresh side, the first herbs from our kitchen garden. Well, we've had rosemary all winter, but the others spent the cold months under heavy plastic and have emerged green and healthy.
During this week of fabulous cool spring weather, you might wonder what was hot. This feeder, that's what. It holds Hot Meats! From the Cole's company, Hot Meats are sunflower meats coated in hot chili peppers . . . squirrels won't touch them! Our birds love the Hot Meats though (and, yes, that's an orange slice on the other hook.).
So this brings us to the hideous - this pole and transformer. If this is what's the norm in your neighborhood then it's not unappealing, it's just what is. But, our end of the block has had underground utilities for almost twenty years and this pole is a new and unwelcome change. And I'm not even showing you the guy wire with its fluorescent orange sleeve! So, we'll have to wait and see how this little drama unfolds.
That's what's going on in my world. I hope things in your world are cheery! I'll be back over the weekend to chat about garden etiquette.
