Did you ever notice that when something is working fine you loose sight of it...forget it? Well breathing is a big one for me. Having had allergies and allergy induced asthma since birth, I love it when I am having a good period and forget about my respiratory system.
That was the case until yesterday. We had gone to our first ever Black Friday (actually Thursday night) sale to get a flat screen tv to replace our 1995 behemoth. Hey folks...we use things up!
Anyway, got one (our son told us to go...they had a price he'd never seen that low) and then had to get something to stand it on because it didn't fit. So, we went to a thrift/recycling store and found an oak cabinet that would work. Got it home, and 30 minutes later, I am having breathing problems. Someone had stored perfume in it, scented candles or it was next to one of the new plug in room deodorizers that is lethal for me. BTW, they contain (candles, febreeze, room deodorizers, etc, phthalates, which are toxic, cause cancer and are banned in the rest of the world...just not here in the USA according to the allergist...go figure. So...am heavily medicated, and so this is a short post for which I apologize.
You see what I mean about taking something for granted...breathing! It is such a blessing when you can forget about the mechanism!
I know you have seen this cup and saucer before, but my brain isn't working too well, and it;s a favorite. It's an Aynsley with a gorgeous blue and wonderful gold lace overlay that I just love. It is so elegant!
So I hope you are breathing well, enjoying your week and getting geared up to prepare for the holidays.
All I have done is the wreath on the door! But today...that's an accomplishment! Here are the blogs I am joining. Have a lovely day and have a cup of tea with a friend!
