Thrilled with so many things lately.

I recommend:

      • This fantastic project, The Reframe, by Holstee (take a couple minutes to watch their video)
      • The Light Between Oceans: A Novel— our book club just read and discussed this — lots of discussion ensued over this novel.
      • Taking a long walk every day — it’s simply good for the soul.
      • Inviting someone over for a meal this week — so much fun. (make the meal simple and don’t be afraid of potluck)
      • And, if you’re going to invite someone over, Whitewater Cooks at Home is utterly fantastic even if you think you aren’t a great cook.

Thanks for the lovely images and recommendations! The novel looks very interesting and would be a great choice for the book club I’m in – I will suggest it at our next round of book selection!

I love these photographs, Diane!
The cookies look so yummy, and your(?) dog is just gorgeous. Oh my goodness, those eyes!

Thank you so much for the recommendations. I am off to check out the books.

I hope you’re having a wonderful day.

Beautiful soft images and some wonderful recommendations here. I’m going to check out that cookbook as I just joined a cooking group that some friends recently started! Looking forward to cooking again after being away from it for most of this summer! Thanks Diane!
