i won a giveaway from backyard candle company and my two candles arrived today - can i just tell you how yummy they are. i got the lemon biscotti and grandmother's kitchen. grandmother's kitchen is already burning and is making my kitchen smell sinfully good. yum! (i got two little preview tealights too and the pumpkin spice is really putting me in the mood for fall)
thanks you all for laughing with me about friday night. it was quite the little adventure. the weekend was mostly a muddle of lots of rain and some visits with my girls. the littlest is learning to sing on her own as she watches big sister sing (i didn't know the words to 'the star spangled banner' at four - did you?) so cute.
i went to the farmer's market and probably bought the last fresh peas and butterbeans of the season. so in tribute, i fried chicken by my mom's recipe last night. i must say, the chicken was awesome but my gravy was not quite right - i rushed it.
it's been raining, like forever now - i think we've channeled seattle here - except instead of the misty rain, we're getting gutterwashers...even the sidewalks are molding because they cannot dry out. in the brief sun we had yesterday, i ran out - but, lately i've been hating my shots. i feel particularly un-mojo-ish. hopefully this will pass soon. i'm trying to shoot through it as that's the advice that i give. however, the coolest thing that is saw yesterday was a bumblebee colored, hummingbird moth. wayyyyy cool. i tried to catch some shots of it - but it moved pretty fast.
hope you're having a beautiful monday - mine was full of doing laundry, running errands, eating pizza and watching my favorite comedies.
