Good morning, dear ones!
Well, I’m supposed to be sound asleep but I can’t because I’m too excited!! I just had my first guest post at Travel Belles and am tickled pink! It’s all about a lovely villa some friends and I discovered in the mountains of southern Italy. If you’re interested in such things, I’d love it if you’d pop over and leave a comment. You can find it here. If not, no worries! Here’s a sample photo of what you’ll see there.
Do you have special plans for this weekend? Somehow it crept up on me and I clean forgot that I have Monday off! HOORAY! What a glorious thing to have a whole extra day off. My mind is whirling with marvy things to do, mostly of the utterly lazy, beautifully cozy variety since it is oh so dark and rainy.
I’ll pop over to my folks for a cheery visit and stroll through my Mum’s wonderfully peaceful garden.
Perhaps I’ll actually finish one of the five books I have going all at once! They’re all so good I can’t stick with just one. 🙂 I’m rather excited at the prospect of sleeping in and have the John Adams DVD’s to watch and dear friends to meet for coffee and lovely toasted beef sandwiches with chevre. Mmmm.
Sunday evening my cooking group is getting together for a jolly time of good eating and hunting down the best fireworks in Bellingham. I can’t wait!
Today is Myscha is hosting Happy Hour Friday over at WEBESHARIN and since it’s oh so cold and dreary today, I’m contributing Irish Hot Chocolate with Cinnamon Cream. It’s so warm and creamy and delectable, it chases dreariness right out the window!
I wish you a beautiful weekend, dear folks! I will see you next week.
