In exciting (to me) news, Hubby had the brilliant idea to bring out and hook up my old stereo. I have been complaining for some months now about the horrible radio reception in this house. It finally devolved to the point that I could not listen to AM radio if any appliance was in use and FM stations are sometimes difficult to tune in on a digital radio. While I can listen to just about any station via the Internet, I don't care to.
It looks great but best of all it sounds great. Being able to actually 'tune-in' a station is a delight. And yes, that is an 8 track player . . . . it still works!
There was a brief discussion about the possibility of getting some new speakers. In the end, the originals won out. The whole set up is like having a long-lost member of the family return. Heck, when we were first married, those speakers not only provided sound but were pressed into service as end tables.
I think I'm going to suggest we get out the turntable next. While we don't have many 8 tracks on hand, albums we have in abundance.
Meanwhile, in the kitchen, I seem to have started a little hydroponic herb garden.
Many herbs in the market now come already rooted and ready to go - just add water. Simple and tasty. The nuts in the foreground are another recipe from the Clean Food cookbook. While not exact, this recipe is quite similar. I used pumpkin pie spice and no salt. I urge you to try out different spice combinations. The results are yummy.
