A weekend update, Labor Day sales, a new movie and so much more on Monday morning musings.
Good Monday morning friends and a happy Labor day to you. We have had a fun, yet busy weekend. My nephew is staying with us for a week while his parents are away and I have been chauffeuring him back and forth to school, to cross country practice as well as to visit friends. In between that we have been to a barbecue fest, dinner with friends, a cocktail party and the farmers market.
Tomorrow we wave a fond goodbye to our kitchen crew, the kitchen is finished! Except for the refrigerator and a few pieces of hardware which may or may not arrive in January. To say that I am excited is an understatement. The cabinets are filled, as are the drawers, my baking pans and ingredients patiently waiting for the dust to settle before their return.
Today we are off to the beach club and then it is an early night for me I have carpool duty and we leave at 6:00 am. What are your plans this labor day?
Now that I caught you up on the weekend on to 5 Things.
You are going to love Haute Cuisine, based on the true story of Danièle Mazet-Delpeuch and how she was appointed as the private chef for François Mitterrand.
Two houses, hundreds of miles apart . . . yet connected always.
When life throws Molly Butterfield a curveball, she decides to spend some time with her recently widowed granddad, Wally, at Hawthorn Place, his quirky Victorian house on the Dorset coast.
But cosseted Molly struggles to look after herself, never mind her grieving granddad, until the accidental discovery of an identical Arts and Crafts house on the Norfolk coast offers her an unexpected purpose, as well as revealing a bewildering mystery.
Discovering that both Hawthorn Place and Acacia House were designed by architect Percy Gladwell, Molly uncovers the secret of a love which linked them, so powerful it defied reason.
What follows is a summer which will change Molly for ever . . .
