5 Things

5 happy moments from the last 5 days:

1. Booking a weekend away. It's time to escape the city.
2. Early rises, leaving enough time for slow mornings with plenty of coffee.
3. A Mexican feast.
4. Planning Summer trips with Maman and Papa.
5. Coconut milk porridge.

Have a sunny weekend tout le monde!

Norma's Cherry Pie

B and I turned up rather late to the obsessively watching Twin Peaks party. We finally finished watching the series 25 years later, last weekend. Every time Coop had a slice of Norma's cherry pie at the Double R diner during the show, B would whine that he really, really, really wanted some cherry pie. 

In his Christmas stocking B unwrapped an oh-so-fancy jar of cherry pie filling. The reference did not need to be explained. A few days ago, this filling found some pie crust, Joy the Baker's buttermilk double crust to be precise, and after bubbling away in the oven for a little while, we devoured piece after piece after piece of this fabulous cherry pie. Coop, you were right, that cherry pie really was worth the stop.

5 Things

It's been a week of very high highs and very low lows. Little moments of joy are really what have saved me over the last five days:

1. A late birthday present from B
2. Breathing deeply in and out during a long yoga class
3. Running through the snowy park
4. A turn of events in the job department
5. Monday night pasta and Prosecco at Rucola

Happy weekend! I hope it's less of a blizzard than the one just gone by.
