Along with sharing links that have piqued my interest this week. I’m also sharing my Nana’s pie safe at the end of this post!!
Hemmingway’s Cats— I always read articles about Hemmingway’s cats. When R and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary, we went to Key West. One of our must-stops was the Hemmingway House there. We fell in love with his cats and told each other we wanted to get a 6 toed cat. He died a few days after our 26th anniversary. A few weeks later, when I was helping at a small library at one of my school district’s campuses that was being closed, a beautiful 6 toed cat came up to me. The principal told me they needed to find a home for it since the campus was being closed. Of course, I had to have him, and I named him Hemmingway!! He always reminded me of R.

|My sweet Hemingway. He looks tired because he was just waking up from anesthesia.|
Dr. Pepper “Icing On The Cake” flavored soda!! I have to find this for Dr. T. He loves his Dr. Peppers!
Sunrise Springs in Santa Fe— I know Santa Fe, New Mexico is a popular place to visit. I feel so lucky to live in New Mexico now and have easy access to all things Santa Fe. Sunrise Springs is a unique experience and one that I hope to visit sometime! I had a chance to go there with some friends, but I was back in Texas and didn’t get to. It not only offers yoga and other relaxing, peaceful moments, but counseling is also provided. It is the Real Deal of restful experiences!!!
Illustrated Mueller Report– With Robert Mueller testifying today, I thought it was good to share this link. It is an illustrated and adapted version of his report!!
When my Nana passed away, my cousins and I all got together and were able to take things that we wanted. Her pie safe was passed over. My dad called me one night and said, “I’ve rechecked with everyone. No one wants the pie safe. Are you sure you don’t want it?”
Of course, I did!!! I got it, had it refinished, and it was in my kitchen in the house in Texas ever since. Dr. T and I were there a few weeks ago, and I decided to bring it back to New Mexico with me so I could enjoy it every day!! I have loved having it here. I put all my teapots in it, but I don’t think they will stay there. I love to display them, and it’s too hard to keep the door open on this pie safe. This pie safe was in her kitchen for many years. I wish I knew the complete story behind it. I think she and my grandad got it early in there marriage so they had it for many years!! It is one of my favorite possessions!!
|Dr. T and I talked on our drive back to NM with this in the back of his truck about how we wish this piece of furniture could talk!!! I’d love to know the whole story behind it. I sure wish I had asked my Nana about it!!!|
