..At least I give recipes. *grin*
While I was reading, Four Queens here , I was taken with the references to Matthew Paris and having googled him I discovered that his works had been translated and published. I wanted a copy. Yes people....I bought a book. I did try the library first and came up dry but with Stephen's help I put in a bid on eBay and the book has now been added to my small collection. Continuing on a spending theme I can happily report that we have given the contractor the go ahead on the bathroom and I've written the deposit cheque.
Today I went out and ordered a new light fixture for the kitchen. Deposit paid. For 34 years the same one has hung over the kitchen table and it's day is done. Paul dragged me off to the plumbing store yesterday to look at taps for the bathroom and on the way home took me into a new lighting store and I found one I liked. Really liked. Got it at a good price thanks to the 15% off coupon P. was smart enough to cut from the paper.
We finally have rain. I did water the tomato plants yesterday, once again refusing to believe the weatherman who has been so wrong so often these last few weeks. It started last night and has continued on and off all day today. Good for my lawn, bad for the Winona Peach Festival.
