Little Bits for a Monday

February 4th, 2013 1 Comment

Hello all! This morning I wanted to share a song that’s been resting in my ear of late. It may seem odd to some, but it comes courtesy of Black Sabbath. The song is “Planet Caravan.” I hope you enjoy it too!

We have recently been plowing our way through old episodes of The West Wing. In stark contrast, it was interesting to come across this Huffington Post article about the President of Uruguay. Mr. José Mujica lives in his own run down apartment, donates 90% of his salary to charity, and has a net worth of about $1,800. “It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, who is poor,” he says. Makes one think.


Ashley, co-author of a longtime favorite blog of mine, Hither and Thither, recently posted this easy method for foolproof soft-cooked eggs. You can read her full post here, complete with more mouth-watering photos. The method is simple: bring a 1/2-inch of water to boil then place eggs in the pot, lowering the temperature to medium, and re-covering it. Set timer for 6-1/2 minutes. Rinse with cold water, peel, and enjoy!

There are still walls in our home waiting to be adorned with just the right piece. After coming across Botanicus.org, a free encyclopedia of historic botanical literature courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden Library, several of them are in danger of being covered completely by gorgeous botanical prints. You can browse and download them for free here. Scroll down through all the text in the pane on the left until you come to the plates. Beautiful, eh?


Enjoy your week my dears!
