the expanse of sky
compensates for
the bleak surroundings.

(there is a dark cloud hovering over
dillandparsley these days, posts will
be sporadic, thank you for visiting)

a friend brought back this edible souvenir
from italy. it was a welcome treat during a
break from printmaking. the packaging is
so pretty.

november has been kind,
the last few days have been
perfect, sunny and mild,
the sun was trying to emerge this
most of the leaves have fallen
creating a colourful carpet.
miss m is enjoying our
daily rambles,
though we have to be on
the look out for
aggressive coyotes.
wishing everyone a
good weekend.

some mad fun

it has come to this,
i visited pia's blog, and she suggested
to mad men yourself. amusing.
i don't remember the last time i was
in this type of establishment and i don't
own a dress. who is that man anyway?

red toaster

a new toaster lives in the kitchen,
it must be the 8th or 9th toaster
in over 10 or so years.
some lasted one day, 3 days, a week,
a month. those that functioned longer
usually expired in a flash of light conveniently
past any warranty.
i am hoping that this made in england dualit
toaster will be with us for a long time. so far
it has been making beautiful toast.

czech food descends,
it can be satisfied at
this homey and warm restaurant/deli.
there all sorts of treats and a welcoming
attentive staff. it is one of those forever
places, their site can be found here.
happy november!
