Tonight I had to lock myself in the sunroom. I was officially maled-out. I put the hounds and cats in the garage and the menfolk in the living room with large plates of food and a crappy Star Trek re-run and betook my overwhelmed soul to the sunroom and SAT (yes, I sat down and I wasn’t driving-it was quite fun) with a bowl of super-ripe room temp Bolivia peaches from my friend Frankie at Pridgen Farms and a ridiculous little book-a birthday present from my brother.
It was SO nice. It was raining big fat steady rain drops and I had juicy peaches and this book which is funny-if for no other reason than it concedes Astro vans can be spooky. How long have I been saying that? Forever. If they filmed a Tim Burton 2010 version of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang they would use an Astro Van for the ChildCatcher’s Ice Cream trolley. The book is Confections of a Master Baker by Gesine Bullock-Prado. www.gesine.com Tonight, after my break and completing all household chores I am ‘sperimenting with different biscotti flavors. OOOH! I should make myself a fresh pot of inky caffeine deliciousness to try the biscotti in their natural environment, no?
