a contented day

after the exhaustion of a 5-hour trip
home from victoria on sunday,
getting up super early on monday
(after sleeping in all weekend),
working a full day,
running in the afternoon
after a much-too-short nap,
and rushing off to italian class in the evening,
today seems like a breeze!
i'm peacefully content
sitting at my little desk
chatting with teachers
while they break from their language classes
and sipping a giant mug of tea.
i'm especially looking forward to one-thirty,
when i'll escape outside for an hour
to lie in the sun.

and even better...
after work,
our very dear friends
are coming over
to plan an august trip
to san francisco!

you're not so bad after all.

ps, i want to make something yummy
to serve my friends,
but dante & i are off sweets for two weeks...
any suggestions for a healthy,
summery dessert?

  1. I love Giant Mugs of tea!! Happy Tuesday! xo

  2. I don't know if you'll count this as sweet, but I don't! It's actually sort of tart and bitter, with a smooth melt-in-your-mouth pastry crust. It's a Plum Tart with Parmesan and Black Pepper Crust: http://www.food52.com/recipes/475_plum_tart_with_parmesan_and_black_pepper_crust

    I made it when I happened to have a ton of plums lying around, and it was a huge hit with my friends. If you have the time to make it, I definitely recommend doing so (although be forewarned: cooking in the oven in this heat is hot!).

  3. oh gosh, making plans is one of the best parts of taking a trip! glad to hear that you're finally relaxed

  4. Oooh exciting you're planning a trip with friends! Happy Tuesday Meg! :)

  5. oh you are taking an Italian class? Fun! I minored in Italian in college and have taken one course post-graduation. I miss it :)

  6. a trip to san fran? have wanted to go there since i was a little girl - that is awesome! and you're learning italian? also awesome.


i love reading your comments - please drop me a note to say hi!
