Sometimes when I pick up Alice in the afternoons she falls fast asleep in the car and stays as such until Byron gets home and Rosy barks in excitement at his arrival. This hour gives me some nice, quiet time to myself. Today, I made myself a lovely snack, put my tired feet up, and browsed the latest Entertainment Weekly.
My dear friend Lyndsey gifted us this Belvoir Elderflower Cordial. It is a non-alcoholic drink enhancer that makes water taste like flowers and lemons. It is really something special. A biscuit with fig jam was the perfect after school (er, work) snack. My favorite new mug (and the jam) were birthday gifts from my BFF.
I am kind of obsessed with this tray. I found it at a thrift store for a song. I bought it to use for our Mad Men party and it now has a permanent place in our living room. I must remember to look for more like it the next time I go shopping.
