|02:37 pm - Amuse-Bouche|
This week has been an exercise in running running running up that hill, and sliding down every other step. But we continue, we carry on, we persevere.
Indicative of my current mental state: yesterday I sat down to write y'all a ficlet, beginning with the image of an amuse-bouche, but somehow the delicious foamy love-gift became poison and, well... I deleted the dark little start of a story. Because no. That's not the right spirit.
Before I return to work, then, not quite a week's worth of delicious bites:
*the Dog of the House scampering amidst fallen camellias
*sun through a window, warming an armchair left to me by my grandmother
*cowboy boots, worn with tights and a knee-length skirt
*Neiman-Marcus chocolate chip cookies, an indulgence too far but worth it
*Champagne for tonight's early evening out with friends
*scribblings in a notebook, names and details and word-clues
*a rewatch of Young Sherlock Holmes, which has a problematic second half but begins in a lovely, shadows-on-cobblestones, proto-steampunk mood. (Barry Levinson, yay.)
May these small tastes be just the start of a delicious few days for you!

Cookies followed by champers sounds the perfect call.
Raises a glass with you:)

Those are all things of loveliness! May the week's end bring more good things. For me, I will be satisfied with my bed and a leisurely shopping trip on Saturday.
Oh, your Saturday plans do sound delicious. :-)
cookies and champagne...yummy!

Yay cookies and champagne and Sherlock Holmes!
Thanks, Gwynne! [shares all of them] And a happy almost Friday to you. [hugs]
It was a lovely evening, and now I'm (almost) ready for tomorrow. ;-)
Happy end of the week to you, C!
I'm rather fond of Young Sherlock Holmes, myself...
Hooray for good friends, the Small Blonde One, cookies, scribbles, cowboy boots, and champagne!
These are all good things!
Happy Friday, happy lists!
May your weekend be filled with treats, L!
Thank you, and I hope your weekend is full of wonderful things! :-)
Yay YOU, H_P!
