Husband picked this book up for me at the library. He thought it was a "me" book. The title is crap, but, the book is awesome so far!

When I was in college, my close friend and I purchased this Thor's Hammer for her mother, Ruth. Ruth, who was like my second mom, passed a few years ago and it came into my keeping. It now sits on my bedside table on top of a piece of Leicestershire sandstone that I picked up on one of our walks. I saw it today and thought it was pretty illustrative of my past and my present.

The remains of the Mexican Feast at Karen's last night after 8 hungry people ate loads. There was A LOT of food. I am currently suffering from a food hangover and the husband just had Tres Leches cake (made by Meghann) for breakfast. It was good fun and good company!

I am posting four today as I couldn't decide and neither could my husband. I hope you don't mind the cheating.
The light in this setting caught my eye as we walked the Northamptonshire countryside.

Coin collecting is something that I became interested in because of my grandfather. We would spend hours sorting through piles of coins. Of course, medieval coins are my favorite. Whilst in York, I fell victim to the beauty of two new coins. I took them out of their boxes just a few minutes ago. A Henry VIII groat (on the left) and an Edward VI shilling (on the right). Now, I just need a Henry VII and a Mary I to complete my Tudor coin collection. They are the first antiques I have purchased in about 7 years.
