First I have to confess I am having hunting withdrawals. I miss my trips to my neighborhood thrift store (and my Sunday morning gang) and I can’t wait to be able to go out ferreting again at our local flea markets and antique stores. Till then I am making do with a little online sourcing, digging in my death piles and downsizing more personal stuff.
Finally got a couple of Etsy orders this morning! That spurred me on to list four things. Two are crucifixes that arrived by FedEx today from an auction I won two weeks ago. I bought the lot because of this wonderful primitive hand-carved one. Reminds me a little of wood santo carvings by Leo Salazar.
Called a dear friend who lives in a retirement community to see how she was doing. She’s in good spirits though life there has become much more restricted. So looking forward to a coffee date with her when this is over.
Sat out on our stoop to get some fresh air and sun. Spotted this little volunteer plant nestled amongst the shasta daisies. Not sure what it is (possibly a primrose), but strangely it gave me a bit of hope.
Decided to make rice pudding and we actually made that our dinner! Figured it was a fairly healthy, filling meal with its rice, raisins and milk and only a smidge of sugar. Cinnamon and vanilla gave it great flavor. Okay maybe not the most nutritious meal but very comforting.
In the evening the three of us gathered in the living room to watch TV together. Last night we tried the first episode of “Killing Eve.” Started another jigsaw puzzle.
Day four done.
