round the house this mornin'

a heart appeared in my latte this morning after i poured in the espresso.
a little message of love.
newspaper hearts, pink tulips and twine, kiki with her pink piggy, and apples ready to be made into applesauce.
it's a cold, wet morning here.
i have laundry, ironing, baking on the list.
still deciding on what to bake. sweet? savory?
whatever it is, i will share it with you.
oh, and those bottles of milk and crate of organic produce will be on my doorstep any minute now.
i love thursdays, don't you?
so close to the weekend....and isn't looking forward to something almost better than when you already have it?
now i'm going to bundle up and brave the sleet and snow.
all in the name of kiki contentment.
and while i'm out there, facing the elements, i will also have something to look forward to;
thick socks, glowing heaters, a stack of cookbooks, warm applesauce...
....and a note from you.

  1. Hello Miss Dawn!! Lovely posts to catch up to:). I've missed you!! I think that I secretly awoke early this morning just to catch up on the lives of all of my favorite bloggers:). And there seems to be quite a bit going on! I adore your pink posts; pink has been and always will be my most favorite color! I just can’t seem to help it- it speaks of love and joy and it is just so darn cute! So I really enjoyed your pink posts.

    Also, I wanted to tell you that the layout of your new home looks FABULOUS! It looks quite large!! And I am in 100% agreement on both the love for mud & laundry rooms, as well as the love of floor plans. We bought our house a year and a half ago now, but I still occasionally (well, more than occasionally:)) peruse the real estate sites to check out floor plans/ décor ideas, layouts, etc. So fun! So, I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for you, Ramon and Miss Kiki….. and keep us posted:). It’s good to be back! Welcome February:).

Love all your posts, the delivery of milk reminds me of milkman we had when my husband was in the service and we lived in TX back in 1962, you are right there is a special feeling when the milk is delivered fresh at your door!! Have a wonderful day--((hugs)) to Kiki for me. Looking forward to hearing about what you make or bake today!
