Catching up here.
Has anybody been watching the Stanley Tucci series Searching for Italy? What a beautiful examination of the relationship between culture, environment, economics, art, and food. It is so nice to see such respect for the different cuisines.Debbie I am so sorry that your cat has died. Our furbabies are so special to us and are family in every possible way.Lisa A very happy birthday. I remember reading your first mystery. Have you published more? DM me.CheriAre you still crocheting beautiful blankets. I am in awe of your skill. They are all so beautiful and you seem to finish them in no time at all.Kim It is so hard to take care of family members without work being affected. Maybe your brother will wake up.Heather What fun for Easter. I understand what you mean about noise! Antiques Roadshow and Midsomer Mysteries are 2 of my favorites. Are they still being produced in the UK? Both are here only on reruns. The US version is posting the current values of the pieces selected. It is fun to try to guess whether the value has increased or decreased. It appears that no one wants dark furniture.Rebecca Athena looks just like a tiny you. I love the name. On each side of the family, we had Minerva. One was always called Minerva and the other Min. Elegant ladies, both.Kelly A new grandchild on the way. I will hope along with you until further along.Matchka Keep those biking pictures coming. It is great to see Australia. I worked there years ago and I know that everything has changed. About the only thing I recognize from pictures of Sydney is the opera house and the bridge and nothing from Brisbane, Melbourne, or towns on the Queensland south of Cairns and north of Rockhampton. I still remember how excited I was to see a kangaroo for the first time in the outback on the way to work.Karen The Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation is having its annual big fundraiser and many people are having virtual silent auctions. You never know what people will bid on for a good cause.Pip Your decorating is so inspiring. Do you conduct virtual consultations? I never know what to do for window treatments. I love the light curtain.Pat Needle phobia is so common. I think it is the reason that some people are reluctant to get the 2-shot COVID vaccines and are waiting for the J&J.Barbara "Earth tones look soiled to me. Oranges and yellow need not apply." My exact thought about these tones for clothing for me. Although I do have an apricot dining room and yellow trim in my kitchen with cabinets and wall two shades of green - mint and avocado. It is a craftsman style house with the original painted cabinets and so I continued the paint rather than try to strip them. I am redoing the kitchen and putting on addtion this year (if I can ever get contractors to return calls or give estimates). This will necessitate all new cabinets. I am going against the white trend and putting in wood cabinetry. I also will match (I hope) the original wood floors throughout the rest of the house.
My favorite color is blue. I look best in royal blue and wear navy blue most of the time instead of black. I also like fuchsia and frequently wear a fuchsia pashmina. I have one red pashmina that is blue toned. Other than that, I do not wear red. I do wear red matte lipstick with my navy and a dark matte fuchsia lipstick with other colors. In the 70s, for about 3 years, I really liked earth tones and yellow was my favorite color. Some pictures of me in these colors disabused me of the thought of wearing them and about that time, the earth tones/hippie trend seemed to disappear. I have always liked blush pink and sage green together for decorating with touches of a rich burgundy thrown in.
Everyone- stay well.

Machka- Every time you post your map of where you have ridden; I am reminded of the second to last episode of Sherlock, when he tells off his brother (who is tracking him) in a walk. lol What would you spell out on a ride, if you could? KJ (Kelly)

-To get to 5 veggies per day i added on top 3 pieces each from the freezer: eggplant, zuke and red pepper.
I'm not sure how important the 5 different veggies per day is, but i think it's a good habit to cultivate, to avoid monovegetable eating I've been aiming for 5 (even tiny bits of 5) at lunch. Then it's done, and i don't need to think about that later.

On a slightly personal note: I am not sure what is up with my hubby not showering. I don't think he has showered in a week or more and he is getting slightly smelly. lol (laughing, but not laughing). I am not sure if it is him losing track of when he last showered, or thinking he doesn't need one because it's not hot out and he doesn't move around much... I am wondering if it is getting hard for him to get in and out of the shower (he needs to step into the tub and the sides are pretty high). Have any of you had to re-think or re-do your bathrooms due to advancing age and declining physical ability?KJ (Kelly)
