my week in objects (mostly).

2.08.2013

five little things that made my week.

1. this turmeric and milk.

{my friend janet reminded me of turmeric's healing properties this week and i made a delicious combination of warm milk, turmeric, and honey. move over hot chocolate (okay, not too far over)}.

2. this quince blossom.
quince
{because i used these branches for an upcoming valentine post and the leftovers lasted all week}.

3. this nearly used up candle.
candle bits
{because i've been sticking it on the radiator instead of lighting it, and it still smells so. good}.

4. this sleepy finch.

{for snoozing on the feeder all morning long}.

5. this chocolate pizzelle. pizzelle
{for all these reasons}.

other things:
we just made this again. best blizzard meal.
ground hogs!
old folks + old footage = heart swells.
this is life affirming.
i'd love pore over these.
thought-provoking.

  2. That sweet napping bird: be still my heart.

    Also, I've been meaning to pop in here to tell you that 1. I made your Brussels sprouts pasta - delicious. I still had more sprouts, so I roasted them and (thanks to your mention of the restaurant pizza) put them on a homemade pizza. It's our current family favorite . . . and I think I'm addicted to roasted Brussels sprouts. Thanks for the idea!

  3. This is sooo lovely! I think it is really inspiring to take simple pictures of your life! I think I should start doing that too, if you don't mind being my inspiration.

  8. Sweet little sleepy finch! :) Cutie he is. That combination sounds wonderful, warming and very healthy all at once. No wonder you enjoyed it. (And really, what DOES take the place of yummy hot chocolate?) Or any chocolate for that matter...
