Biscotti on the brain

Standard

What’s true for me today is …

Very happy it’s Wednesday, the downward slide towards the weekend and relaxation.

Plus, Wednesday night has become Shop-for-the-Week’s-Treat night. So, after I finish posting, I’m headed to the grocery store to buy¬† ingredients for tomorrow night’s baking adventure–lemon pistachio biscotti. I’ve never made biscotti, but I have eaten my fair share, so I hope that lends me some credibility in the kitchen. Fingers crossed. I’ll let you know how they turn out. How great would scratch-n-sniff Internet be right now: inhale, tangy lemon zest; exhale …

What does the aroma of fresh lemon remind you of?

A few of my favorite things

Standard

What’s true for me today is …

I need a pick-me-up this morning (and some more coffee), so I’m starting a list of my favorite things–sure to put a smile on my face. As of right now, my list of favorite things includes:

  • Water
  • Ginger
  • Salty crackers
  • Arm-wrapping hugs
  • Pistachio ice cream
  • The sun on the back of my neck
  • Confidence
  • The Sunday New York Times (magazine and Modern Love column, especially)
  • Those last few moments of deep breathing at night before I fall asleep
  • Geranium essential oil
  • Lemon zest, Thai basil, and garlic cooked together
  • Seashells and the seashore
  • A really “meaty” book
  • Breakthrough, “ah-ha” moments
  • Writing
  • Texting Xs and Os whenever I feel like it

Smiling now …
