Day 265-272 – Ode to Autumn

I have been sick.  For a whole week now.  And I am Not Happy about it. Still.  I’ve tried to make notes of small beauties throughout the week. So, here I am.  In bed with my laptop and a fever, finally updating the blog.  Apologies for the delay. Day 265 – Day 266 – Day … Continue reading

Day 240 – 245 – Where did It go?

When I started this blog, I got so much enjoyment out of finding special bits of beauty where I least expected it.  Right now, I feel so drained most days that writing even this small blog seems like a chore.   It really isn’t though.  It’s kind of like exercise.  Sometimes I don’t feel like doing … Continue reading

Day 233-235 – Crafty Things.

But there was beauty in all of … Continue reading

Day 129 – Patates Frites

Mother’s Day for many is an exercise in frustration and disapointment. I think I was one of the lucky ones this year. Both toddlers looked and behaved beautifully. My husband forgot completely, but made up for it by getting me one of the funniest gifts I’ve ever received (plus other pretty and yummy things.) Dad … Continue reading

Day 82 – Throwing Stuff Into a Pot

I have loved baking ever since I was a kid.  I remember my mom letting me raid the spice rack and baking cupboard so I could come up with my own special concoctions.  I still have vivid memories of some foul almond-essence smelling green liquid I “cooked” but never tasted. I’ve become a foodie as … Continue reading
