So much for seeing you all on Monday. Some weeks are just like that, you know? First, a big hi-hello-welcome-thanks for coming over to peeps from Simple Lovely! It was so nice to see all of your sweet comments come in over the weekend. I do hope you enjoy yourself, and maybe even come back.
So much going on right now, some of which really doesn’t make me want to sit in front of my computer at night, but then again this is fun too.
The weekend was… good.
We took a nice hike up through Temescal Canyon on Friday and found a few flowers still in the throws of spring. This one was so pretty with it’s furry yellow insides. But what is it?
My brother did a demo at a glass studio open house (he’s a glassblower), and it was really fun to watch him work. He’s lived out of state since college and is finally back to start grad school. It’s good to have a brother around.
I was pretty into the little bits of colored glass scattered under the work bench. I took one home (thinking I’d make it into a Christmas ornament?) but it broke into a hundred pieces in my purse. Like my brother said it would.
More prep for this weekend’s party. So glad it’s here, though I could use a few more weekends to make perfect little wine tasting bottle numbers and cards and things. Instead I made balsamic cherries for the cheese platter. They are divine and require little thought. Here is the “recipe”: Balsamic, brown sugar, vanilla bean, cherries. I literally made it up over the stove.
And look who finally found the backdoor in a small, curious herd. They were so funny inching their way deeper into the laundry room and then the kitchen. We are getting to know each other, the chickens and I. Though, for the record, they are not allowed in the house. I had to get a picture before I shooed them out.
And now the week begins. And is almost over. It’s weird how weeks do that.
