I'm going to try out the Paula Deen Boston Cream Cupcakes this weekend. Our officemates are the happy recipients of many of these baked goods. We try a few servings & then get them out of the house!
After Leslie & Brian left, my sister & brother in law came for a fun-filled visit. They just about ate up Hope...Cue to a gratuitous Hope photo....
I also have been reading a lot. My recent reads:
So, so gorgeous. I'm a fast reader & I made myself put it down so that I could savor it for awhile longer. Also, The Interpreter of Maladies by the same author. It's a collection of short stories & I normally do not like short stories. But, I Loved these. Again, as with The Glass Castle, I urge you to read these books if you have not. I've been very lucky recently to have come across a few authors who have that incredible rare gift of taking the ordinary words that comprise our language & craft them into art.
I'm resting up this weekend, after a month of being hostess. I purchased the peony that is pictured above on the way home tonight. Peonies are one of my very favorite flowers & they only last such a short time each season. I wish that I could send their scent to all of you over the web. Just heavenly.
