Clippings. Am I the only one that still practices the fine art of clipping? Don’t know what I am talking about? Oh come on.
In the days long ago when we all subscribed to multiple magazine subscriptions and newspapers I had lots of piles of clippings. This week I have piles of clippings.
One of my volunteer jobs is helping keep the Connestee Falls Library in shape. I popped up to the clubhouse this week to check in books and straighten things up. It was surprisingly a bit of a mess this time with books here, there and everywhere so it took me awhile to get things in order. One of the things that we offer our residents is the opportunity to donate books and puzzles for our library.
Sometimes we get great donations. Most of the time we do. But then there are other times when we get things that we really can’t use. We have no room for old magazines and this week there was a motherlode of old magazines.
Most of them were cooking magazines with glossy pages and lovely pictures of delectable dishes that I could re-create at home. Oh the recipes I could make.
So I clipped and cut and clipped some more. I have a lovely pile from my stack of discarded magazines to add to my already large stack of clippings. I may not make them all but it is fun to look at the possibilities and know that I have options.
Especially when I think about making the little sandwich below for Theo. Perfect, right?
