Happiness Is....a Wonderful Weekend
*a festive Pirate Pumpkin ala Beren
*Beren's company picnic spent at a lovely outdoor venue; even though I hate seeing animals in captivity I must say that this place was very well-maintained.
*soothing the PMS beast with a small indulgence; these were truly the best oatmeal cookies I've ever made!
*the scent of French bread wafting through the kitchen (I cheated and let my borrowed (thanks, Mom!) bread machine do the work this time.
*Friday afternoon kitchen witchery - lavender-rosemary soap and bath salts with fresh herbs from my garden (these will be Yule gifts so I'm not sharing pics of the finished product..shh...!)
*fresh flowers on my nightstand (thank you, Beren!)
*reconnecting with high school girlfriends I haven't seen in 26 years! (you know what? We're still hotties!)
*a beautiful 18 year old daughter who announced on Saturday that she's still moving out..but not quite so far away. (to hell with Orlando, she says! Yippee!)
