Just the bits of what has been going on…

-Have been reading voraciously. I currently have two books going at once. Hubs gave me a Kindle for my wedding gift and I have been reading every night. currently reading "My Life in Paris" by Julia Child. She is a remarkable person and has such a classic love story and relationship with her husband Paul. It makes me want to move to Paris.

-For my birthday last week, Hubs gave me the ubiquitous cookbook "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" by Julia Childs. We've been talking nonstop about her since we were in Paris then saw "Julie and Julia". Her recipes are copy written so they are not on line. But I really like the way she writes and I am planning on making a few dishes. Anyone interested in a dinner pot luck at my house (seriously)….Can we say Camembert soufflĂ©?

-I have decided months ago that this fall, I will make beef stock. As God is my witness, I will make it.

-The past few nights, I have been beading. I haven't uploaded any photos because I need to create a light box since the photos are not coming out well. It is on my to do list. I also need to buy more beads but I have to wait a few weeks to do that!

-We are 98% done with our Thank you notes. We errr I have to buy stamps.

Happy late birthday! I have heard that book is hard to find. I can't wait to see the film on Netflix!
