Good morning friends! I hope that you are had a wonderful week. It has been a little crazy here and alot of fun. Patches is the sweetest pup and she has shown me things that I have overlooked because I am sometimes in a hurry. I’ve learned this week that there is always time to stop and smell the flowers, sticks, mushrooms and all other things in the yard. I’ve learned that no day is too busy that you don’t have 5 minutes to sit and enjoy the sun. Pisa and Paris are s-l-o-w-l-y coming to realize that she is here to stay and they have made a few overtures of friendship, especially of she drops her treats.
I found so many great things this week, I hope that you enjoy them.
Chocolate Pumpkin Cake with Hershey’s Chocolate Frosting and Candy Corns, and easy and delicious dessert for Fall.
I have not watched a movie for so long, but Enola Holmes looks right up my alley, have you watched it?
Drawing on numerous unpublished archival documents, scholar Erica E. Hirshler excavates all facets of this iconic canvas, discussing not only its significance as a work of art but also the figures and events involved in its making, its importance for Sargent’s career, its place in the tradition of artistic patronage and the myriad factors that have contributed to its lasting popularity and relevance. The result is an aesthetic, philosophical and personal tour de force that will change the way you look at Sargent’s work, and that both illuminates an iconic painting and reaffirms its pungent magnetism.
Vianne Rocher has settled down. Lansquenet-sous-Tannes, the place that once rejected her, has finally become her home. With Rosette, her youngest child, she runs her chocolate shop in the square, talks to her friends on the river, is part of the community. Even Reynaud, the priest, has become a friend.
But when old Narcisse, the florist, dies, leaving a parcel of land to Rosette and a written confession to Reynaud, the life of the sleepy village is once more thrown into disarray. Then the opening of a mysterious new shop in the place of the florist’s across the square – one that mirrors the chocolaterie, and has a strange appeal of its own – seems to herald a change: a confrontation, a turbulence – even, perhaps, a murder . . .
What will the wind blow in today?
A distinguished psychiatrist and avid gardener offers an inspiring and consoling work about the healing effects of gardening and its ability to decrease stress and foster mental well-being in our everyday lives.
I just ordered this acorn lights and I love them!
Great rustic cake stand, perfect for Fall.
I really want these plaid shoes! The problem is that I do not need them.
That is it for this week! I hope that you share your favorite recipes, books, movies, finds and whatever else that you feel like.
Have a wonderful weekend. Be safe friends.
