Now that the cold weather is upon us, I actually feel the need to
cook some hearty meals. This week I made one of
our my favorites.
White chicken chili. Yum!! It's not Bill's favorite meal,
but I'm the cook, so I win.
I've also packed away all my summer junk. Things were looking
mighty bare, so I went shopping in the basement to find some autumn
looking items to prop on my shelves, and here's what I came up with....
Back to school meets the arrival of autumn.
The old crayon tin came from a box of unclaimed freight.
The shoes came from an old Finnish neighbor, now deceased. How old I'll never know,
because she wouldn't tell anybody her age! Her birth date wasn't even listed
on her obituary, but my guess would be close to 100 years old.
Imagine buttoning your children's shoes every day!
The book page came from a music book
I rescued from a pile of debris just before
they demolished my old grade school.
There are 2 pages for every month.
This page is actually for the month of
October, but the theme and color worked
so here it stays.
I also found an old oak bookcase
door in the debris. I had a piece of
mirror cut to fit the back and it
now resides in Julie's house.
I wish I had an in when they were
doling out the schoolhouse
clocks and lights!!
