The end of the sogginess

here in SC! We had 5 straight days of rain, fog, and gloom. The type that requires lights all day. I am glad that's over! Phew, that will dampen anyone's spirit. On this bright sunny but cool Sunday, this is what I'm doing:

Loving my french press brewer. If you don't have one, try it! Makes strong coffee though but I like it that way. Just like my NeeNee; having a pot of coffee simmering on the stove. One of the best smells I remember from her. Dark chocolate--must have! I have to limit sugar's though and the Dr says if I'm going to eat chocolate make sure it's dark -won't spike my insulin so bad.

It's been a rough weekend for Devyn. She's 18mos old and still won't sleep well. I think I had 4 hours of sleep last night. I hope it's growing pains. She did transition to toddlers last week at school and was having some overexcitement from that. Hoping this week will be a little calmer!

I do have to recommend this cookbook. It's absolutely darling and has some of the easiest recipes--family and kid oriented, beautiful photos and stories. The fun part is that is based by color! I just love that idea.

I've just purchased these-you can find: here and here . Can you tell I collect cookbooks? :)

Preparations are under way to attend Sweet Flower Fairy Garden Art Retreat!

Lastly, I'm off to watch my DVR movie from Lifetime--nice sappy romance for one tired person.

Oh, could you believe I am NOT ABLE to make coffee that way???? Such a shame for an Italian girl!:(
But I love its smell...
