Remember all those pretty book pictures? Well, I mentioned there were spoon racks behind them... I am going to have a long like month ahead of me, because the spoons are so badly tarnished they are black (certain ones). I have a set of the prime ministers up until Trudeau... they are scary looking. I grabbed some silver polish to see just how bad they are. Trudeau is currently silver, while the rest of the set is brown. This is the problem with not being able to see my spoons.
Anyways, sharing moment. The reason I collect spoons? They were my grandmothers. When she died, they were the only thing in her house I wanted. The thing that shocked me was I got them. My grandmother loved her spoons and I thought there would be a fight over them. Nope. I spent forever cleaning them when I first got them, and I used to pay special attention to them, but then I ran out of wall space and they got buried. The reason they came back to the surface today? Flea Market! 62 spoons for a very awesome deal. I was cleaning them, and I got to thinking about my own and how I was going to rearrange them. Stupid me did not think about how dirty my own spoons were... I am going to try find a better place for them so they are not out of sight, and well, out of mind... I suppose if I do a rack a day that will be good. I could sit down and do all of them, but MY GOD silver polish STINKS! Some of them are really bad.
Carrying on, yesterday was my birthday thing with my friends. I got two books: The Owl and Moon Cafe by Jo-Anne Mapson and Around the Next Corner by Elizabeth Wrenn. A gift certificate, two CDs, and a book by a friend of my boyfriends, which I will say more on when I have actually read it. I actually started and almost finished The Owl and Moon Cafe today. I needed some senseless reading in an attempt to get me reading again. This seemed to do the trick.
I don't talk about music very often, but I just wanted to say that in the last couple months Iron Maiden and Blind Guardian came out with new CDs that I have to say I am enjoying very much. That is my music of choice of late.
