It's Fridaaaaaay! Let the weekend commence!
But first, some little things that have made me happy this week...
... Chris and I started (again) growing herbs on our lanai. My favorite are the basil and mint plants. It makes me a little bit giddy to use the fresh basil in my homemade spaghetti sauce (like the big delicious pot I made this week!).
I break off the mint leaves and pop them in my mouth and instantly I am transported to my grandparents' house . They had mint plants growing on their lanai and as kids, we'd always snack on the mint leaves as we ran in and out of the house with our cousins. I love how smells and tastes bring back sweet memories like that.
... Speaking of yummy basil, Chris and I have discovered the best pesto in the woooorld. The macnut pesto that we've been buying at the Haleiwa Farmer's Market is heaven in a jar. Especially when it's slathered on a warm butter garlic baguette bought at the market.
... I actually did some creating this week that didn't involve paint and canvases! I updated our front door wreath for fall with some mustard yellow and brown felt rosettes, burlap rosettes and some branchy things. Made me realize how much I've missed doing projects around the house lately.
