Remember that great old song by Bread? Well if you do then you're old. ;)
As I'm writing this, it's late on Monday night/Tuesday morning, and I've got another thirty pages or so of A Lasting Impression to edit and cut and tighten and slash and put back together and rearrange and stress eat over before heading to bed, so I'm going to share some quick pics from recent life and hop back to writing.
Know what these are? Heaven-in-a-box!
A sweet friend sent me DeBrands Truffles recently with a note tucked inside that said "Just cause you're loved." Isn't that sweet? It meant so much to me.
After taking some pictures of the edible works of art, I cut them up and have been savoring them a little bit at a time. In fact, I "hid" them in the "foil and saran wrap" drawer and forgot about them until I went to post these pictures and then I thought, "Hey! I still have some bites of those left!"
Who says growing older doesn't have it's upsides?
Another sweet treat…
Last Tuesday, dear friend and writer Brandilyn Collins was in town, so Gayle DeSalles (another great buddy who lives local) and I met her for dinner at Stoney River. Such fun and so delicious. We laughed and talked and shared. I left filled up and re-energized! Brandilyn has a new book out, Over the Edge, and I've already started reading it. It's fabulous. Great plot! But it is making me a little itchy. Read the first chapter and find out why.
Skip ahead to Saturday (and speaking of Brandilyn's book)… I noticed Jack had a knot on his throat (embedded tick? Ack!), so I asked Kels to take him into the vet. He was due for his vaccinations so the vet administered those and then Jack proceeded to have an adverse reaction to them and spent Saturday and Sunday lethargic with fever, not eating and hardly even moving. Bless him…
I took him back to the vet yesterday morning and after an injection of anti-inflammatory meds (and a trip afterward with me to Sweet CeCes, froyo will cure anything), he's feeling some better again. Still not 100%, but getting there. I sure do love that little guy.
Lastly, Kelsey came over this weekend and made these heavenly Itty Bitty Cinnamon Roll Bites she saw on Picky Palate. Oh gracious, gals! They are delish! And so tiny. Hardly any calories.
Here's the recipe, and be sure to browse the site. Picky Palate has some great recipes. Just please, no salivating on the screen.
Okay, 1866 is calling. Blessings on your Tuesday, friends!
P.S. The truffles are officially gone. Now if I could just figure out why I'm not losing any weight.
