I’d rather be gardening….but that is a long way off ! Reading this morning’s post of one of the bloggers I follow, Johnwhays, renewed my resolve to enjoy these cold winter days and put them to good use.
I finished a pillow I was making and it adds a cheerful note to this funny chair that I painted and reupholstered earlier. I removed the back from some earrings I had and gorilla glued them onto the ends of the arms. I don’t go for “high style” here, (obviously, lol), I lean more toward the whimsical….things that make me happy
I made my weekly batch of kefir in this big, 8 cup glass jar. For any of you out there that want to make your own kefir and haven’t gotten your own kefir grains or don’t want to deal with maintaining them..dehydrated kefir starter works great and it’s quick and convenient. Eventually, I will get a hold of some live kefir grains but this is fine for now.
A while back I learned from another blogger, Agnes from Gaiainaction , that it’s possible to start plants from grocery-store bought ginger and tumeric and that she had done it. I potted some up and will keep them moist. Hopefully, if I can keep myself from poking at them, they will be growing in no time!
