Happy Weekend Cottage Fix crew! I’ve sort of been hibernating in my own little bubble lately, which isn’t really that unusual for me when it’s cold out. Trying out new recipes, getting my creative energy out, and the mundane tasks of daily chores are keeping me on my toes here in my shabby little cottage. There’s nothing I like more than a day filled with the household rituals of hot coffee, a spot of cleaning, folding a load of fresh warm laundry, painting something or other, and then getting supper started. And of course I always squeeze in a trip to the gym or walk on the trail to show those thunder thighs and muffin top who’s boss! There’s a chance it’s cheesecake! grin. I love that feeling of being all tuckered out at the end of a busy day and then cozying up on the sofa with a glass of wine.
While I was at the market yesterday stocking up on stuff for the weekend I couldn’t help but treat myself to a bouquet of pink and white blooms. These flowers are making me think Spring already which probably isn’t that healthy considering we still have a ways to go. And let me add a “sale alert” plug for anyone living close to Harris Teeter. Their tulips are on special five bunches of five for 10 dollars! Yes! I know! To create this somewhat ginormous spring–y bouquet I added a couple other white blooms in with my pink and white tulips. Oh Spring where are you!?!— I mean, Winter I love you so…
Without a doubt, Honey and I have been slacking off this this Winter. There are lots of little things that need finishing up around here, and with the cold weather we’ve been on hiatus from the garden. But I’m sure no matter how caught up we get, we’ll always have a list. Yes, it will still be waiting for us tomorrow no doubt. So for today — I’m enjoying my Saturday flowers!
PS Two amazing recipes my whole family loved:
