staying pretty close to home. Weekends after my husband has been traveling .. we always want to hunker down and be together.

There’s no doubt I’ll be puttering around in the kitchen. On my short list? Ina Garten’s Lamb Stew .. and a big batch of homemade bone broth. I’ll also be testing a few new recipes for next weekend’s cookie exchange

Admittedly .. the past couple of days around here .. have been a bit sad and teary. Life .. it’s never short on surprises. One moment you find yourself in the kitchen chopping veggies .. and the next you’re at the vet saying good-bye to your kitty ..


Instinctively .. I keep looking for her. Is she sunning herself in the front window? Hiding in the Amazon box in the middle of the living room? Stuck in the linen closet .. yet again?

“Thank-you sweet one .. for being such a great kitty. We love and will miss you .. so very .. very much”   ~  Love, all of us

Whatever you’re up to this weekend .. I hope you have a good one

For the weekend .. a few fun links from around the web

Täo Porchon-Lynch – Started practicing yoga at age 8 because her uncle told her it wasn’t lady-like. Today .. at age 98 .. she’s the oldest yoga teacher (ever) .. loves ballroom dancing (her partner is 25) .. and wears only high heels because they “elevate her consciousness.” What an incredible life she’s lived   [via The New York Times]
