Garage cleaning has its' virtues because it gives away its' treasures.
I found a small box with two more pewter wine glasses
and two bowls made from white clay, that are so thin, you can almost see through them.
They have paintings of a rooster , a hen and green grass.
I also found salt and pepper shakers from Florida.
They are back in the box again waiting to be rediscovered lol
These are things you put into a display case.
Maybe one day I will do just that.
We had a wonderful hot week end just perfect to sweep up the garage and sift through things there.
I found my sewing basket with all the thread, needles etc... for sewing. I should add to it all my knitting and crochet stuff so everything is in one place and easier to find.
Took two days and most of it is done but still a few things left to do.
The big rat that came in and ate my chinchilla, left huge droppings.
My son saw a big rat, dead on the street, a few weeks later and since then, we don't see anything around the house but my chin paid the price. Now the dog looks for the chin and it's not there. They were friends.
We watch Anthony Bourdain on the food show called Parts Unknown.
He travels to places tourists don't usually go to.
Yesterday he went to Lima , Peru, which he says will be the next new great place to go, for good restaurant food. He went up into the hills to see the cacao plantations and ate at the homes of the people, who went out of their way to cook local food.
All around were little guinea pigs living free around the house where they ate. It was interesting to see.
They eat these guinea pigs as they do the chinchillas.
But the very new gourmet foods of the future will be insects.
Anthony was seen crunching huge fried black ants. lol
Survivor man ate grubs he pulled out of trees in Australia which he said were very tasty.
They were white fat and juicy. Certainly treasures for a hungry man. lol
So apart from the sun burn I got, we had a great week end.
