1. Our new, pretty little birds-on-a-wire painting courtesy of Enrouge. In addition to being a talented artist, she did not make fun of me when I asked her if she could make me a special one with the birds on the right side of the wire. (So that it wouldn't throw the balance of my whole room out of whack--yes, I'm getting OCD with age.) It's not a photography trick, the colors really are that fabulous.
2. The easiest chocolate mousse recipe ever. Part of what makes it easy? Very basic ingredients. Nine days out of ten I have all of them in my house. (And if you don't have cardamon, throw in something else--I'm thinking of experimenting with ground up lavender or rosemary, but I'll bet cinnamon would be awesome too.)
3. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I finally started reading it for-reals on Friday night and have spent the weekend devouring it. Definitely going to be read a million times, and one that I'll be recommending to everyone! (So go read it!)
