Just a Minute

 Photos from my trip to the lovely Carolina coast.....sigh....

Reading...the book of James:
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." -ch.1:17
Also The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne. Intense.


Making...sour cream coffee cake with chocolate cinnamon swirl. Diiiivine. The recipe makes one 9x13 inch cake or divides perfectly into two 9 inch loaf pans. One for home & one for sharing....magnifique! From the Baked: New Frontiers in Baking cookbook, 2008 edition. Which I mistakenly purchased full-price from B&N, when you can get it half-price practically anywhere on the Internet. Oops.

Watching...what was supposed to be a gorgeous ranunculus blossom sprout into....tomatoes. I kid you not, tiny green tomatoes have appeared in the pot next to the zinnias, the pot labeled "Ranunculus". I guess that's what I get for buying my bulbs and seeds at the end of the season from the bargain bin: severely mislabeled packaging. Oh well, when life hands you tomatoes, make...salsa?

Loving...eos organic lip balm in "summer fruit", strappy metallic wedges, pocket-sized notebooks, sales on my favorite brand of paint at Michaels, having a new phone that actually works refrain from buying kitchen tools/dishes/etc even though they're on sale/really adorable/etc because I don't actually have a kitchen to put these things in. Someday, little bear, someday...
