about the things I should do with all my spare time now.  On second thought, I don’t want to think about it.
It means going through all my “stuff” and deciding what is trash.  You know what I mean? You’ve always told yourself that you would clean out the closet and cabinets when you had time. Right?   How’s that working for you now?
One doesn’t need to be bored.  Now’s the time to enjoy things you never even gave a second thought before. like, just yesterday, I had a double yolk in my egg. I was thrilled.  And who knew that waiting for the mailman would be exciting?
So. What’s your high light in nesting at home?

Look for the miracles around you.
It’s okay to feel down as long as you don’t stay there.
Never give up HOPE.


Scrub wicker furniture with warm water and salt. It will help from turning yellow.
Make your own furniture polish with three parts olive oil and one-part vinegar or use lemon oil in place of vinegar.
Get rid of mildew from wooden outdoor furniture. Mix one cup of ammonia with half cup of vinegar, a quarter cup of baking soda and one gallon of water.

You stop asking what’s new and start saying…remember when?
Everyone seems to whisper.

Never take care of a cold. Try to get rid of it
It’s cheaper to borrow money than to marry for it.

    The unplanned “projects” that somehow manage to inspire a few hours of distraction during our confinement can’t be determined ahead of time. Yesterday I organized twenty years of recipes that were scattered in a half dozen locations, but I never set out to take on that chore. It just emerged and mercifully took over my brain, pushing away—at least for a peaceful time—thoughts of an unfulfilling Easter. Perhaps one or two of those newly discovered recipes will inspire some cooking, but if not, that’s okay too.

    Theresa, I love your work. It is starting to make my Monday’s. Do you have any household hint for keeping yellow out of white hair?

    My highlight is the taking a drive with my husband and dog through our little town and parking down at the Fox River and enjoying the outdoor view.
