Random Thoughts and Links
It's so hot here that the sun has fried my brain. Rather than posting about one thing, I keep thinking in dribs and drabs.
- First of all, the blackberries have been really delicious this year so I've eaten lots of them. One of my friends pointed me to this yummy blackberry syrup recipe. I think I need to make waffles tomorrow just so I can try it out!
- It's a little too warm for a fleece blanket right now, but later on, the blanket Brown Eyed Belle is giving away looks like it would be so cozy!
- Also, be sure to check out The Company She Keeps for a cute Lilly tote giveaway. I'm heading further south for a little getaway later this month and as I think of heading toward the sun, I'm craving the Lilly to take with me. I know folks wear Lilly year-round now, but I still have that childhood association of Lilly and madras + vacation.
- I've been watching World Cup and even though the mourning over USA's ouster in my house was matched only by the disappointment of Germany losing (DH went to a German boarding school), we're still watching the finals this weekend. I decided to get festive and serve tapas and sangria. So far, this looks like a promising sangria recipe, but if you know a better one, please do share!
-Since it's Friday, I have to have something funny to get me through that last work day. Even though they've been around for ages, LOLCats still do the trick for me.
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
