I was goofing off in the kitchen, rearranging some fruit and I couldn’t help but take this-  I keep that mini- sock monkey in the kitchen scale in the kitchen and I giggled when I put the banana beside him and thought that I definitely needed to take a shot of him ‘monkeying around’  ha..

I used to have some socks like the monkeys are made out of when I was growing up- and in fact, I wish I had a pair now for when the winter months hit.  They were such warm socks.  Maybe I need to snoop around and see if I can find some when it starts getting cold again.

There are many things in life that I love-   sunny, blue skies-  the beach- really ‘great’ quality food and the list goes on- but pretty close to the top of my list would be my favorite coffee-  Illy!   We buy the beans and grind them in our wonderful little grinder, and even though I’ve thought about buying a new machine-  Our espresso/cappuccino machine we got as a wedding gift 8 years ago still works perfect.   It’s a Krups brand and because it’s been so great to us- it’s definitely the brand we will buy in the future.

What about you?  What’s your favorite Brew?

While we’re on the subject of ‘favorite things’ –  The Wizard of Oz is also at the top of my favorite movies list.   I have several Wizard of Oz related magnets on the fridge and this is one of them.

When I see it-  I can’t help but smile-  Not just because it’s Wizard of Oz- but because it reminds me of just how blessed I’ve been with the good friends I have.     I’m not much on quantity- but quality- and my ‘true blues’ are definitely quality-   I don’t take them for granted, but instead know just how blessed I am- and I’m grateful.

This is the beginning of some great egg salad for Marcel.    He had been complaining that he was tired of having cheese sandwiches every day at work and asked if I was ever going to make him egg salad again.    Who can say no to that?  Not I!

So I grabbed some of the free-range eggs that his mom brings us every week from the market- and tossed them in the pan.   Wasn’t long before they were part of the salad for him-   Needless to say- he was a happy guy.     The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.. ”

The afternoon sun was shining in through the window one afternoon and I loved the way that it looked on this particular throw pillow.   You can’t really tell it from the picture, but it’s one of the ones I bought to go on our new sofa and I have to say- its probably my favorite.

 

I’m a huge fan of color- and of yellow,  not to mention textures and patterns.  This pillow has it all.

Going back to the ball theme-  this is another one of the balls that I have in bowls here in the house.  This one is made of wicker or something like that-   and even though the original was in color-  I liked it better in black and white.

Sometimes I amuse myself with the strangest things-  I know.    I have these cheap tweezers with a magnifying glass attached to them and one afternoon I thought it would be fun to go around checking things out from a closer perspective.   This is the result of one of those items.  A 5 euro bill.   I guess I could have hoped to find some type of hidden symbol or such, but there was nothing exciting to see.
