The temperature is perfect. The fresh fallen snow is absolutely breathtaking, light and fluffy. The air is fresh. Branches on the trees are laden with sparkling jewels. Such a lovely way to start the day!
These opportunities don't present themselves very often, and when they do, it refreshes the soul and renews the spirits. I am thankful, very thankful!
Our book club met at our home last evening and watched "The Mistress of Spices" on DVD. Most of us had read the book as well. It was a great evening, filled with fellowship, laughter and tasteful delights made, of course, with spices! I think you would enjoy this book written by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.
Happy Tuesday to all!

Okay ladies, I'm looking for comments on this post. I am in the process of picking our new lighting for my kitchen/dining room. I took down a 4 ft. section track lighting that was old and here when we bought this house. I had hoped to find another type of lighting that would provide lots of light for the food pantry and counters (without have to do additional work on the ceiling). Hubby thinks an 8 ft. section of mono-rail lighting would work. I'm wondering if that isn't a bit much. I am such a visual person! And I just can't convince him to buy it and hold it up while I decide whether I like it or not.....wonder why? Does anyone have any suggestions/comments?
Thanks in advance.

Have you ever had one of those wonderfully lazy days...two really productive days in a row and the best intentions for today. However, after sleeping in, fixing a light brunch, the hubby and I decided we were not going to be very motivated today. And I might add, we've been extremely successful! Cleaned out emails, organized files on the computer, send a few notes - all while snuggled under the afghan next to the fire and watching television.
We ended up pulling movies from the cabinet and are now watching "Mountain Men" with Charleston Heston and Brian Keith. Normally, it isn't a movie I would select. My memories of Charleston Heston involved a chariot. There have been a few entertaining moments. Both hubby and I have decided our fathers would have loved this movie. As a little girl, I spent many evenings watching John Wayne movies with my dad.
When my daughter comes home, we always have at least one "girls day" where we pick a classic...Thornbirds, Gone With the Wind, North and South, Dirty Dancing, P.S. I Love You, Coco Channel, etc. This year it was the Godfather trilogy.
Do you have any special movie memories?
