Hi everyone! I hope you had a wonderful, wonderful weekend. We spent a lovely, relaxed Shabbat here at home - which ended way too soon. Though of course, it means there's another week to look forward to!
Sunday mornings around here are probably similar to Monday mornings for most of my readers. I like to begin my week in a slow manner. On Sundays, we usually still have plenty of leftovers and bakery from before Shabbat so there's no need to cook, and the house most often needs just a general tidying up. It's a perfect day for planning what will need to be done during the week, digging in the garden, and doing things I normally don't have time to do.
I spent some time pulling weeds today, and in the process uncovered a patch of mint which unexpectedly sprung up thanks to the rains we've had lately. What a nice surprise - I hope now it can grow freely. I once wanted to plant some mint in a pot on a kitchen shelf, but never got around to that.
Last night, my husband and I spent about three hours figuring out the secrets of my sewing machine, and much to our pleasure it finally seems to be doing what it's supposed to do. I truly couldn't have done this alone, so I'm very thankful for a pair of skilled manly hands here around the house. I hope to practice a bit more once I finish my lunch - which includes, today, leftover bean-and-veggie soup, leftover potato salad, and some liberally buttered home-baked bread from Thursday.
The picture above is of a fluffy chicken we saw not long ago. I find the thought of having a few of these cuties around here nearly irresistible. Anyway, we are still trying to figure out what it is exactly, because there was no one to ask. I thought perhaps one of you ladies might know and tell me.
