In my Kitchen- February 2014
In February , I seem to drop into a depression that lasts until Spring and even later sometimes. So I spend a lot of time reading and hiding out in other people’s thoughts and lives. I used to buy stacks of books in the Autumn so I would be prepared- but since the advent of the Kindle in my life- or should I say that in the plural?- because I need two to keep up with my reading schedule and you have to plug them in to recharge once in a while.
So – in my kitchen and wherever else I go-
is a Kindle.
In my kitchen-
I love baskets- I fill them
with all kinds of supplies
and goodies and books.
And candles and napkin holders
and cookies, and stamping pads and
stamps and napkins and presents.
This basket holds pies! Two full
size pies ! It is so great to use to
carry them to my niece’s house for
The last basket I’m showing is called
a market basket- but I use it for my most
recently used cookbooks. These baskets
are all handmade here in Ohio at the Longaberger
Basket company. They are very pricey- but they are solid and make for real
working baskets rather than for lightweight loads.
In my kitchen…
(wait for it…)
Is this great glorious loaf of bread!
Even in the doldrums, in the midst of reading, I make bread.
It is almost as lifting to my spirits as reading!
In my kitchen…
are tea cozies and pots of tea.
Also very good for the lifting of low spirits.
So- there you have it- books, bread, baskets and tea with cozies to keep it warm.

Have a great February- or just find a good book to read and a great bread to eat!
