1. Brunch on the Spot

    Brunch on the Spot

    I hosted a last-minute Easter brunch today. Most of the people I invited already had plans. My mother- and father-in-law were available though, since they do Passover, and we ended up having an extraordinarily lovely afternoon with delicious food, a quiet street and plenty of time to talk and enjoy each other’s company.

    I’m learning how not to kill myself preparing and hosting food events like…

  2. Easter Care Package From My Sister

    She’s been telling me about this all week. It came today, in a decorative box. Lots of fun!

    Zero to Hero, You Know That Thing?

    So, I decided to revisit the basics and put myself through Blogging 101 at Blogging University. So far it’s pretty basic stuff: write a post about yourself (which I’ll repost here at some point) and then change your title and tagline.

    I’m rather fond of my title, thank you very much, but I did monkey around with the tagline a bit. Hope you like it.

    Easter Peeps

    I’m having a cozy little brunch with my in-laws tomorrow and am enjoying the Easter “care package” my sister sent to me in the mail. I took a picture of it on my iPad, but for the life of me can’t figure out how to get it anywhere else!

    Have a great bunny day and watch it on that chocolate.

    My sweet petite Céline,

    You will turn two tomorrow, tomorrow…Where has the time gone?

    I still feel your tiny hands hold my finger tightly, feel the smell of dried milk and baby powder on your skin, feel your warm breath when you nuzzle your face into my breast…

    Two year old, you have a character,

    You do things…

  6. A Penny For My Thoughts

    I really like this Blogging 101 thing. It’s taking me back to the very beginning of things.

     

  7. Two Steps Forward

    Gah! Will this winter never end? Last week it was sunny and in the 60s, then it started to rain – a lot – and now it’s gone down to near or below freezing.

    I decided to get a start on the garden during those warmer days and also decided to keep a record of what I’m doing (thank you Evernote). The plant nursery had its early spring assortment out and I came home with two types of mint, lettuce,…

    Yes. Go for it. I only wish millionaires weren’t the only ones with the resources to do these kind of things.
