Rainy Days and Time to Start Packing

Hello, luvs! A storm is raging outside, lulling me to sleep as I fight to stay awake. It is almost midnight – my usual and most unfortunate bedtime this week – and I can’t wait to hunker down under a cozy quilt and sleep, sleep, sleep.

It’s been raining something fierce all week, shutting down power and phone lines, thoroughly drenching everything in sight. I may be hankering for some sunshine, but the moss and ferns are flourishing!

What are you up to this weekend? I’m sticking close to home, bustling about doing laundry, finishing up writing assignments, wrapping Christmas pressies, and packing to leave for Europe next Friday. Two of my brothers live there – one in Germany, the other in Amsterdam – and they sent my parents and I plane tickets to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve with them!! We couldn’t believe it. Those crazy, lovely fellows.Β  I can’t wait to see them! So I’m looking forward to my last weekend at home, spending it in my new striped pajamas, playing music as I clean, tidy and plan.

I’ve been eating super healthy lately and am hankering for something good yet decadent for breakfast tomorrow morning. What is your favorite breakfast to spoil yourself with?

Happy weekending!

mlleparadis - yikes! where have i been all week!? i’ve missed so much! so exciting for you that you’re going to spend your hols overseas. and lucky us we’re gonna get some nice pics and recipes out of your travels!

my favorite breakfast recipe is challah bread french toast – the challah bread has to be thick cut, superfresh, egg-ey and yeasty. then i cook down some costco frozen mixed fruit and add a little real mapley syrup to it. (yes we call it MAPLE-Y! at our house). reheast so it’s all nice and warm pour it over the top of the toast. and………it is food for the gods. truly. if i do say so myself.

happy xmas Krista – have a great time!
