You know as I get older I find myself thinking about the kind of place I would love to retire to, live out the rest of my days.....and for some reason I'm always drawn to England. Why?? I haven't the foggiest idea!!!
I think maybe my obsession with Anne of Green Gables? LOL
Seriously though, I dream of moving to one of the small English Villages, I picture green everywhere and beautiful quaint cottages, just like the picture above and my house would be the white and blue one just because it's so cute.
I guess in a way it's my homemaker screaming in me, wanting to be released into a small cute cottage to run amock. I picture beautiful breakfast tables overflowing with waffles and bacon and eggs and cute teapots, a small vase of flowers sitting ever so prettily on the table.
I also envision a bedroom much like this one:A girl can dream can't she??? That's what I plan on doing, keep dreaming and who knows maybe one day in the future I'll be blogging from the english countryside, talking about crumpets and Yorkshire pudding LOL
You do know if I ever go to England even if just on vacation, I'll be searching for my friend Sarah to finally meet her face to face....poor poor Sarah LOL
Anyway, it's another beautiful monday morning here, we're finally heading for Spring, the temperature is supposed to be in the 60's this week which after all the cold and snow is a much welcomed one. I can NOT wait to start walking, taking the kids to school and picking them up, walking to the park and the library or just around the neighborhood.
Winter always brings on the pounds for me, I have a little tire around my stomach that needs to go like, yesterday, I think because I sit around snacking and not really getting much exercise outside. When Spring arrives and I get out there with the kids, the pounds just drop and I for one can't wait.
I have a house to clean, menus to plan and grocery lists to write up. The next 2 weeks are going to be busy ones, I have a couple of dental appointments and errands to run, some reorganizing to do and house hunting too. We're still searching for the perfect house for us to buy, it's such a huge step and so scary isn't it?? Wish us luck!!!
While out at the base thrift store I found a couple of books and even though I have so many already, I can't pass up a good one. I picked one up and I'll be honest and admit that the only reason I grabbed it is because it says "Delicious Recipe & Knitting Pattern Included". Am I the only one who picks up books just because they have a recipe included???
It's from a series called "A Knitting Mystery" by Maggie Sefton and even though I'm more into romance and christian contemporary romance books, I think I'll enjoy this one. What's even better is that I paid NOTHING for it. They always have a bunch of books for free and you would be surprised at the great ones you'll find.
With that I'm going to leave you all, I better get back to cleaning around here. I'll be back later to post my menu on my food blog.
