Lemon thyme to add to my indoor garden.

I’d like to cook with tumeric at some point right now I’m just enjoying the tea. A pleasure for multiple senses. On a gray day like today it is like having sunshine in a cup. As someone recently said to me take pleasure in the simple moments. Have a good day, people.

Steve is taking great advantage of the fact that I accidentally hoarded eggs … not toilet paper, darnit … dozens of eggs. He never repeats a recipe. He’s a believer in the everlasting meal, raiding the refrigerator for whatever leftovers can be found. This omelette contained leftover chicken, leftover as well as some fresh broccoli, leftover brussel sprouts, gruyere cheese, and dried chanterelles that had been steamed in a little white wine. Some foodie friends have shared additional recipes. Let the creativity commence!

Luckily this window can be opened from the stop so I can use the windowsill to plant herbs and sprouts. In front of the window is a small bookcase and its top provides a great (small) spot for more herbs and knickknacks. It is a fun zen-like exercise to arrange the space. Now to actually buy more herbs … 🙂

Hummelo: A Journey Through a Plantsman’s Life by Piet Oudolf and Noel Kingsbury, The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy, and the Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative by Florence Williams. I also picked up a beautiful book about moss. Hmmm. I think I am ready for spring. 🙂
