Happy Monday my friends.
I do hope you are coming off of a good weekend. After a busy couple of weeks, this was a relatively quiet weekend.
I broke a toe several weeks ago and it would appear that it's not going to heal if I'm constantly on the go. So…3 weeks in I've brilliantly figured out that I need to get off of it…so that's what I did this weekend. Which worked out pretty well for me since I couldn't do any yardwork. I like the way that worked out!
I had a such a good time last week with my ‘be the good' campaign. I absolutely LOVED surprising random folks with candy bars…their reactions made my heart sing! After I gifted one security guard, he asked if I had a dog to which I responded ‘yup'. He then reached into his backpack and produced several bags of homemade dog treats for me to give to Flora.
At first, the sheriff deputies directing traffic weren't sure what to do when I pulled up and handed them treats. Then they broke in to smiles!
I was watching out the window when the young men who pick up our trash spied their treat. They kept looking around for guidance, their body language said, ‘is this for us?'
It's the ripples…
How about you…I'd love to hear some of your experiences with random kindnesses.
On to the world wide web…
Looking for some great fall landscape ideas? These plant color combinations are making me want to get out and add some fall color to my garden.
I am a sucker for cookbooks. Despite the fact that I find many recipes on line, I love nothing more than to sit with a cup of tea and browse through cookbooks. This roundup from Epicurious of Fall 2017 Cookbooks has me compiling my list.
My friend Sherry has a tutorial on making felted knit bags…now this is something I haven't attempted yet.
Oh. my. heavens…Brown Butter Bourbon Caramel Apples.
And, isn't fall a great time for an outdoor movie? My friend Joy shows how to make an outdoor movie screen. It would appear that I have several very creative friends. Hey, you could eat those caramel apples while watching a great flick under the stars…bliss.
Go out and have a great day and make some beautiful memories.
