Today is the day! I have finally crafted the perfect Chilled Peach Soup!
Super cute top from Old Navy, now 20% off! Super cute earrings from Noonday, also on a tremendous sale! Lipstick! I'm wearing lipstick that I bought before I realized the plague that is upon us - Popsicle Lips by Sephora - Popsicle Lips - could you die?
Per our non-legally binding agreement (Parties: BustleandVim.com and The Gentle Rea...
I've taken the week off from Covid Projects. My family has not. Husband continues to bake bread, Younger is making marshmallows, Older has been crafting his own fresh mozzarella. But none of them want to blog about the experience, and I, as already mentioned, am on hiatus.
So, when you're not up to the work, but still need a treat (and I always need a treat), here's what's let do:

I'm so looking forward to my sons' next check-up and answering that question, "How often do you eat together as a family?" with "ALL THE TIME!"
As we were suppering earlier this week, my husband started making a list of what we were going to eat in the coming days. Husband is very conscientious of what leftovers are still in the fridge, what's been cooked and frozen for later, what's not cooked in the freezer, etc...
Kate Racculia. Like, a raccoon. Named Julia. I wonder if Ms. Racculia says something like this every time she's asked to repeat or spell her last name. Does she ever sigh and murmur, "Just read my books"?
Years ago I read her second novel, The Bellweather Rhapsody, and I loved it. Imagine hundreds of band, orchestra and choir students all converging onto one hotel for an annual high school musica...
