Monday For Real

I first titled this post, My Saturday!
Our boys are on Fall break and we slept late. 
It tricks the system into thinking it will be a special "off" day.
And that fun things are in order. 
It is 90 degrees outside today. 
And the kitchen is warming up.

 I'm making Pain au Chocolat
...tap, tap, tap...
this is going to be worth the wait I know! 

Lots of rising and rolling and rising going on in the kitchen...
you know what I did?
I opened my favorite cookbook and decided to make whatever I landed on :) 
We stayed in the inn on the cover on our honeymoon, in 1989. 
Wonder if it's still standing? 

Great niece Eden came and adopted Dinah. 
I got camera happy with the two of them.
Eden is wearing the Goodwill tap shoes I got her. 

Eden got happy too!
I remember getting a kitten for Christmas once. 
Daddy walked in with it in his hands and it had a huge red bow around it's neck. 
He sat it down and it darted under the furniture and I didn't find it again for hours! 
"Kitty" was such a wonderful friend for several years though, after coming out. 
Come get a flaky pastry filled with chocolate if you are in the neighborhood!

Adorable pictures of your sweet niece with the kitten. Reminds me of my girls when they were little. We lived next to a church and people would always drop off their pregnant cats right there! So we had kittens all around us! :)

Yummy! Looks delicious! Even though its been hot outside around here too, I still light my pumpkin spice candles and make it fall inside. I adore her black tap shoes- they remind me of the "little black shoes" my mom purchased for my sister when she was little- She loved wearing them and loved the clickity clack sound they made on the floor.
I got your comment today- your so sweet- of course you can share :)
