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.
is a Kindle.
In my kitchen-
I love baskets- I fill them
with all kinds of supplies
and goodies and books.
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
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…)
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…
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!
