What I’m Digging

IMG_4180

Happy Friday, friends! I’m sure many of you are off from work for the holiday weekend, or traveling around enjoying summertime adventures, or some other wonderful something or other. My mom and grandmother are en route to play with Huxley while I get some manuscript writing done. Owing to their imminent arrival and your own busy agendas, I’m going to keep today’s post short but sweet.

Oh, but before I forget, I’ve got a post up on Verve. My birthday is a one week from today, and, being a water sign like I am (I am SO very much a Cancer, fitting nearly every description attributed to this particular zodiac sign imaginable), I wrote about some of my favorite fluid memories. Check it!

In other news, here’s a smattering of this and that’s that caught my attention this (incredibly rainy!!!) week:

*Juniper Ridge makes amazing products in a sustainable manner. Win-win.

*Next time I’m in the U.K., I’m absolutely planning a stop at fforest. AMAZING! And their shop has the most lovely lanterns, enamelware, and wool blankets, my holy trinity of beloved home goods.

*I’ve been brewing several types of culinary bitters recently, and was intrigued by these, from DRAM Apothecary (great business name, right?).

*Strawberry! Mascarpone! Tart! 

*With tarts and pies and galettes and croustades in mind, here are 23 ways to make your pies more beautiful.

Alright, I’m off to shower and get ready for the “Granny Nannies”, as I like to call them. The rain has finally abated (at least, it has for now), so I’m thinking a bit of time spent weeding in the garden is in order later. And some galette making. I’ve got a heap of blackberries and blueberries just begging to be cradled in a buttery crust and baked into juicy submission, so that’ll be happening soon, too.

Wherever you go this weekend, whatever you do, and whomever you do it with, may it be grand!

*I post a photo of Huxley here each Friday because, truly, he’s what his Papa and I dig the most. Here he is snuggling with Glenn the other morning (check out the bed head on Papa!!!). How much do those two look alike?! I mean, minus the beard and all, but, clearly as evidenced here, the apple did not fall far from the tree!
