SPINSTER WEEKEND BLISS -- PART DEAUX

a fancy schmancy new kitchen faucet...special dinner at my very favorite restaurant with Aunt Chrissy...finding out that john bon jovi smells as good as he looks...warm sleepy puppy breath...quiet lazy saturday with the paper and a damn good cup of coffee....the perfect french shellac manicure....a tuna salad sandwich on multi grain bread...a sissy who knows how many more decorations i'm going to need to add to the arsenal this year and who knows exactly where to find them in the hobby lobby...new wreaths for the front windows...a five guys cheeseburger and fries so hot they burned our fingertips...free parking...watching Aunt Chrissy boss the guys around at Lowe's...a new water cooler....a blender for perfect smoothies....breakfast burritos and having a bunch of taco bell mild sauce stashed in the fridge....warm sleepy puppy in the afternoon sunshine...the sunday new york times waiting in the driveway...finishing a wonderful novel....starting a new wonderful novel...taking a nap with my face in the sun and a warm sleepy puppy curled at my feet.

oh, i forgot.  the plumber was a lovely guy named matt who didn't think twice of the fact that stewey threw himself into a full-on tizzy fit of epic proportions over the fact that there was a man in the house, and who laughed heartly at the fact that bosco just wanted to put on his little tool belt and help a guy out.

    1. Oh, how I wish! I got that information from our server at my favorite restaurant on Friday night. Turns out...he happened to be there the week before, and she was still quite giddy about it!

  3. For a lovely read (actually 9 lovely reads),
    try Jan Karon's Mitford series. Whenever I'm between books I read the first book, At Home In Mitford again and again.
    Also try Kate Morton, 4 books. The fourth was just published. I haven't read it yet, I'm saving it for a plane ride, but I can tell you the first three are wonderful. You don't need to read them in order.
