Sunday, Sweet Sunday

This has been such a busy week. Two different house guests, one for dinner and a nights sleep on Wednesday. Dinner at a friends on Thursday and GG's best friend in on Friday from LA for the weekend.

As I'm blogging a big bowl of citrus from California sits to my left and perfumes the air. The Lab is asleep on the couch totally exhausted from a 4 mile hike yesterday and I'm about to go and join her, totally exhausted myself from a Saturday's work, dinner out and then karoke and maybe a little dancing.

It's a sunny but chilly autumn day. I am happily full of sweet cheese pancakes topped with homemade berry jam eaten at a local Eastern European restaurant. And after my nap I have a refrigerator full of delicacies from Whole Foods,including fresh fave beans, to cook.

Oh, and how could I forget, I have an extra hour in which to enjoy every moment of these pleasures.

What a day. What a sweet life.


  1. Yes, you are so right. When it is all said and done, we do have great sweet lives.

    enjoy your day, my friend
    sending love to you
