If you're like me, you may be a dish addict. You have loads of dishes, those you use for every day and that "special" set of china you pull out for that big event or gathering. Over the last few years I've discovered I'm not getting any younger, OK I admit it I notice it every time I look in the mirror along with trying to do certain chores that take me a lot longer than they once did. With that revelation hitting me in the face on a daily basis I've decided to use as many sets of dishes as I can. I'm no longer going to store them away, I'm going to use them. I'm proud of saying I don't spend an arm and a leg for any of the dishes I must have, I shop wisely and mix the old with the new.
I'm sure many of you must think the only dishes I have are blue and white or black and white. I promise you the pantry is full of colorful dishes. Yesterday we were in the 70's unheard of this time of the year in Missouri. Today is a different story entirely, we've had rain a bit of ice and now snow is in the forecast our temperature as I write this post it is 25 degrees, instead of using some of the darker pallet dishes, I longed for something more Spring like.
glow of a candle always calms my soul, a sense of peace washes over me and I can forget the days troubles and woes. I try to look at the glass as if it were half full instead of half empty.
