Weekend plus one

Farm Chicks Kitchen book in pie

Today is one of those days when you want it to last forever. Had croissants from Trader Joes - we pretended they were from France because they tasted SO good. I've been taking notes from The Farm Chicks in the Kitchen. I love their vintage style adapted to our real days. I am looking forward to some flea market excursions come spring. I want to bring their energy to the East coast. I just need to find it. In the meantime, I am jotting down items to look for - Tv trays, paint-by-number sets, creamers with lids, wooden blocks. I have a tendency to 'freeze' and get overwhelmed when at a flea market or antique store. I'm getting ready mentally.

The gardening catalogs are coming and I am thinking ahead. I've been noting where the sun hits (the most) during the day. I am hoping for a raised bed big enough for some veggies - asparagus, potatoes. I can't wait. Gayla Trail from You Grow Girl is coming out with another book - Grow Great Grub.

G is at work. The kids and I have had a lazy morning (still in pjs). One the agenda: making paper via kit, knitting, blog learning and garden daydreaming and planning.

The Ravens loss brought on the tears in O. As I write, he is trying to teach V (age 2) how to tackle and she's rolling with it. Perhaps this is my time to intervene.

  1. Getting seed catalogs in January is a cruel and wonderful thing, isn't it? On one hand, there's planning to do. On the other hand, it's... January... Best of luck as you make your plans.
