OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI haven’t done a round up post in ages, but I really enjoy reading them when I come across one and I also have a lot of random things that I would love to share with you.

I am honored + thrilled that I am featured on Susan of Fleurishing’s blog today, her Proust Q&A was a real enlightenment for me. You should take it yourself or give it to a friend, you might be surprised what you learn about yourself or a loved one, it would be fun to do at a dinner party. Won’t you please come visit me there today?

Read anything good lately?  I always love adding new books to my future reading list. My MIL has me hooked on the Lincoln Rhyme series by Jeffrey Deaver, it’s fiction which I don’t usually read but it’s addicting if you like detective novels. Deaver recently released a Kindle Single (it’s a ‘mini’ book) that I felt was well worth my .99. Speaking of .99 books, if you have a Kindle you should check out the monthly deals, there’s some great books on there right now most under $3! I just finished  reading The Bucolic Plague (the name alone makes it worth reading).

I have gone through all my usual podcasts and stumbled upon Story Worthy, it’s hit and miss, but still worth a try. You? Any new suggestions for me?  I am going to need to download a bunch for our four days of driving!

When I visited Nola my hostess made homemade ice cream. I have never tried this myself and was mesmerized how effortless she made it seem. The flavor? Toasted fig leaf, seriously the most original of all flavors, it has a little marshmallow tinge to it, it’s hard to describe, but utterly delectable. You can get the recipe here.

Found a homing/racing pigeon lately?  We have! A racing pigeon lost its way from Georgia (over 300 miles away) to our little nook in the woods. If you ever do find one this is how you can locate the owner.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I will be enjoying mine by getting more boxes packed, I know it sounds thrilling, please don’t be too envious of me.

  1. It’s my pleasure to feature you Tristan…long overdue as we’ve been bloggy friends for quite some time ;) I hope your weekend isn’t too crazy with packing!

    1. Thank you again sweet Susan! It was so tough answering the Q & A but I hope I don’t look like too much of a dolt!

  2. I’ve just read your great answers! They made me smile, butter as your favourite food? Cold butter straight out of the fridge on freshly baked bread is hard to resist!
    I don’t know what podcasts you are already listening to but if you haven’t come across the BBC’s Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs with Kirsty Young I would highly recommend them, if you like a combination of conversation and music. There is a huge archive on line, this morning I listened to Goldie Hawn and then Dustin Hoffman. They were both so interesting to listen too!
    Have a great weekend among the boxes!

    1. Thank you Sally for the sweet note + the recommendation! I have not heard it and I am getting pretty desperate to load up our Ipod’s with great podcasts for the road!
