Potpourri can be made from fresh flowers you have received. Just let the flowers dry for several days and then place in a pretty crystal bowl.  These dried flowers are very special to me.  The flowers were given to us when I lost my husband.  The bowl is special, too.  It was given to me by Michelle, my son-in-law’s mother, on my 50th birthday.

Seems like nearly everything you can think of can be ordered online.  You can even order a mattress at FoamByMail.com mattresses or furniture online nowadays. A long time ago, I used to be skeptical about ordering from websites, but several years ago I learned how great it is to order something and have it delivered straight to my front door.  It’s so easy and convenient!

Traveling in beautiful parts of the country invites taking lots of photographs.  Whether you’re in North Carolina and want north carolina photographers, or you’re in another part of the country and have a great camera and want to take your own, pictures are something that preserve the experience for years to come.  I’ve been looking through photo albums more than usual the past couple of months, and I treasure the wonderful memories that were captured on paper.  There are many that are priceless!

A lot of people are shopping online these days, ordering just about anything that’s for sale in stores.  I order all sorts of things online, too.   I found this site that so many people use, and I’ve been ordering from it for several years now.  It’s so convenient being able to order from home and have the item delivered  at your door step.

Have you been to a Mediterranean Restaurant?  I went with friends this past week, and one friend and I had no idea what to order.  I don’t know much about Mediterranean foods except for hummus and olive oil but our other friend knew what’s really good.  We ended up ordering soup & salad:  Fatoush Salad & Fasoolia Bean Soup, and they were sooo good!  We also shared a large appetizer tray which had things like hummus (which I’ve already had many times), and baba ganoush, falafel, feta cheese with olive oil, and a couple of dips.  We had a lot of fun trying everything, and I don’t think there was anything we didn’t like.  I give it a thumbs up! I must admit I brought home one of their paper menus so I could tell people what I had eaten.  Otherwise, I would’ve said, “Mediterranean food.”
