pink pom

I took these photographs in my in-laws backyard. I love their yard, so many pretty plants and trees all around so you feel like you are in a cocoon. This is my favorite tree they have. I can't remember the name but I call it the pink pom-pom tree. ;) It only blooms in the Spring and I absolutely adore it.

It's been so windy here! It's sunny and the wind keeps billowing and whirling through the trees. It makes our doors creak and curtains billow. I would love to keep the house open, but the wind is pretty cold. I love the wind on clear days like this, it feels like our whole town is getting a well needed dose of freshness. I'm lucky not to have a lot of allergies, I can see how this wind would be bad for that.

I am going to do some healthy-ish baking today. I'm going to make banana muffins with apples sauce and whole wheat flour. I'm also making this thing it's kind of like a mousse/cake-something and looks delicious. Plus, it is made with bittersweet chocolate which I love. I don't think I am going to make the candied orange peel, instead I will put a tiny bit of whipped cream on each slice with a raspberry.

I am so tired today. I think I might make another cup of coffee and it's only ten in the morning. I did wake at 5:30 though and have had some restless nights. Getting a good nights sleep is nearly impossible for me.

I have completely fallen in love with this drawing table and chair. I have a coupon for 40% off the desk so it would only be $131. I'm so tempted to snatch it up. There are higher things on my list of needs/wants. For example some ballerina flats that aren't filthy and have holes in the sole.

Anyway, it's only Tuesday and that is disheartening for some reason. Life keeps on though...

xx, C
