It was a quiet weekend here – a little rearranging of some bookshelves, a little snow, a lot of cuddling with my family. I think I barely left the house at all. But I do have some random things to share.
Kalas Sea Salt. A little lower in sodium and more flavorful than the supermarket boxed salt. This Greek sea salt is a staple for cooking in my house, and you can find it in specialty stores or on-line for less than $3 for a pretty good sized shaker. If you see it, give it a try. I haven’t bought another salt for general cooking or the table in years.
As of this morning, this book was still free on Kindle. The link is below, a couple of posts ago. Even if you don’t have a kindle, any device that takes the Kindle App – such as an ipad or phone – will allow you to get free Kindle books. Just be sure to check the price before you hit buy in case it changes.
In just two more weeks, these lovelies will be in full force at nearby Planting Fields Arboretum. I can’t wait to get my camera on these. And really, there are few things that I love more than a warm greenhouse on a winter’s day. It warms my heart and my toes. This was a past photo from the Camellia Greenhouse. Yes, a whole big greenhouse filled with camellias. And then an other even larger one filled with lots of lovely flowers. Heavenly.
After a very very long hiatus, I picked up a paintbrush for the first time this year. I’ve a long way to go to get back to where I was when I painted all the time but it felt so good. And even though this was last year’s resolution, it felt even better to check it off my “list”. Hey, better late than never, right?
