I was a busy bee in the kitchen the other day and thought I'd show what real life looks like around here...
Reading glasses on the counter, a ziplock bag half full of icing, crumpled up paper towels...
My 28 year old Better Homes and Gardens cookbook falling apart, loads of paper towels, measuring spoons, and don't miss the Starbucks cup in the sink...
Just thought you'd enjoy seeing what it looks like a lot of the time around here. :)
Changing subjects here...I had a lot of favorite books when I was little. I was thinking about one the other day and I couldn't remember the name of it. I remembered the main character was a cute little lady with colorful hair and she put out a fire with a weird looking firetruck. I kept thinking her name was something like Floopy or Mopsy or something like that. I also remembered another character trying to save some cream puffs. I know that sounds weird, but gosh, I loved that book!
Then I was in the kitchen watching my hubby make fried potatoes for breakfast and as he poured the olive oil into the pan, I said "That looks so glossy." Then...BAM! I was like, "That's it!!!" He looked at me like I was crazy, but I explained that I had been trying to think of the name of the character and when I said the word glossy, it clicked. Her name was Flossy Glossy!
I immediately Googled "Flossy Glossy" and the book came up! Here it is...
That "weird looking firetruck" was an elephant! Lol!
I found it on Etsy for $10. Sold! I love that you can google almost anything and find it somewhere in the world. I don't know what it is about childhood books, but I love coming across them now.
I was so excited to get this in the mail!
There's the cream puffs I remembered!
I did another post HERE about some other favorite childhood books.
Is there a book that brings back childhood memories for you?
