Five things I so love today

Aside from the obvious unchanging list toppers (husband/kids, family, chocolate), today I am loving these things:

Cook's Illustrated Magazine. So much more than a magazine, it's a way of life. Without CI, I would have been lost in my quest for a pressure cooker, to say the least!

Remembering that time, about two weeks ago, when Ms. M. turned five and DORA the EXPLORER called her for her birthday. I love that memory.

That Mr. K.B. knows me so well that he bought me these. I didn't even open the packages for over a week. I just wanted to stare at their shiny newness and marvel at the possibilities they presented to me.

That Mr. K.B. knows me so well that he bought me these and I didn’t once hint that I would LOVE to have one. And then when he gave them to me, I didn’t even open the packages for over a week. I just wanted to stare at their shiny newness and marvel at the limitless possibilities they presented to me.

So happy that  I remembered to 'jazz up' the chicken breasts with little messages that will make me smile when I go to prepare them later on. That, and knowing that anyone going through the freezer may get a giggle as well. (Or, that I've given someone a reason to roll their eyes and wonder if I'm seriously fit to leave the house on my own).

This picture that M&M created together using flowers that they collected off the ground at the garden centre when we were there on the weekend buying our tomato plants. I love so much that they couldn't stand the thought of leaving all of these beautiful fallen blooms on the floor to be stepped on, swept away and discarded, so they collected them up and many of them went into this picture and the rest fed our compost bin to help create more beauty in our gardens.

That is it for today. Short and to the point. Just like me. Except I’m mostly just short, and kind of roundish, not really pointy at all, but that’s neither here nor there. We’re not here to talk about me, so moving right along. We have no fanfare or kerfuffle here today. Oh, but I should mention that if you’re not checking out The Keswick Blog on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, you’re only getting one piece of TKB puzzle. So pop on over to one or all of those sites and follow along.

You will likely regret it, but not immediately.

And I promise, no walk of shame the next morning.
