I almost didn't do a few of my favorite things today. I found myself blank when I thought of what to post. But alas, I did come up with three that are some of my favs,
This pocka book. My GFFHS, (good friend from high school), Andi, corrected me the last time I saw her and said we, in Maine, say "pocka" , "suppa", and "pajamma". She is right. We talk so funny up here, I don't even know how we sound.
This pocka-book is so great. First, I got it at T.J.'s, for under $20.oo. I think I paid $16.oo for it. This is a pocka-book with just the right compartments, all placed in just the right spots. Good Friend had one in green, and I loved it. When I saw this one, you bet I got it when I saw it in brown. Good Friend loved her green one so much, she too got a brown version.
Another favorite thing are my white dishes,
They are easy to match, and I don't have a problem replacing a piece if one gets broken. And they do get broken. White dishes are everywhere from T.J.'s to lawn sales, and that is always nice.
The last thing that is a life long fav, that comes from my childhood is this,
Buttered toast and hot cocoa only to be eaten like this,
It's a comfort food from our childhood, (my siblings and I), that has to be made with white bread, spread with real butter, and dipped into the hot cocoa. Wheat bread just doesn't cut it. I've tried. This is something I eat all the time in the winter, (of course our peeps love it), and it never fails to remind me of my mom, dad, and our house on King Street where we grew up. We had a big old kerosene stove that we would load up with 10, 12 pieces at a time. We called it, "toast on the stove". Boy was that good.
Hey, I think I just figured out what to have for breakfast.
Hugs from Maine
