Good morning! How is your week? Are you ready for the weekend? OK, that is obviously a silly/stupid question because I have never heard anyone answer no. I too am ready to relax as I have had a busy week.
I have found some recipes, entertainment, helpful hints and blogs to help you while away a few relaxing hours this weekend. I hope that you enjoy them and your weekend.
I love British television, there are so many great shows that in the past were available on BBC America or other cable channels but I have not been able to find them as readily recently. Luckily you can now watch all of your favorite British TV shows on My Expat Network. Thank you to Lisa from A Bloomsbury Life for sharing this tid bit! I was not familiar with My Expat Network and I am now addicted
I discovered two new blog this week and I know that I will be sitting down with a cup of cocoa to peruse back posts tomorrow morning.

The first, Ben Pentreath is a beautiful blog; his work, adventures, writing and photos will have you day dreaming about picking up stakes and moving to England.

The second, Forty-Sixth at Grace is blog perfection, a beautifully written blog with magazine quality photographs, recipes and writing. Not to mention that the story behind the blog and the store Herriott Grace, an endeavor of hand crafted items made by dad in Canada and sold by his loving daughter, is sweet and endearing.

For those of you who are looking for something light and healthy after too many summer treats, The Rustic Rooster featured a delicious salad nicoise.

Or if you are like me and prefer something a little more substantial than visit Alexandra’s Kitchen where the photos look good enough to eat. This pizza is calling my name!

I have seen coconut oil everywhere but I think I may be the last person in blogland to actually try it, this week armed with these helpful tips from The Grass Skirt Blog I am going to.
I bid you adieu and hope that you have a beautiful weekend. I will be off to the farmers market, perhaps take a walk on the beach and spend some nice relaxing time with my husband and pup.
