1. Breakfast Beginnings
It is said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Whether that is true or not is debatable, but it certainly is a great way to start the day, especially when shared with friends.
The first PQ opened in Brussels, Belgium on October 26, 1990 and can now be found in 17 countries around the world.
Walking at a slightly slower pace in an attempt to absorb the surroundings.
With the summer heat, I've become very lazy when it comes to walking, so whenever I get a chance for a short little stroll, I take it.
3. The Language of Flowers,
I picked up this little book in a secondhand bookshop a couple of years ago while visiting Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I pulled it out the other day to look up Hibiscus, which is described as "Delicate Beauty" ...
and that it is.
This is the first year I've had this little tree on my balcony and I am totally in love with it.
Most days I get one or two blooms, but on Thursday, I was greeted with 6 beautiful flowers.
It's such a shame that the blooms last for only one day.
4. A new species of rose has popped up on my balcony.
It's one of the fiber variety and comes in any color you'd like.
You can find the pattern at Skip to My Lou.
So very easy to make.
And definitely will last much longer than just a day.
And finally, number 5, perhaps the most important of all happenings this past week.
Son #2, my senior boy, graduated from high school.
I found it completely ironic that the opening date for Le Pain Quotidien of October 26th just happens to be my son's date of birth.
Soon we will have two college boys and that means lots of changes ahead.
All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.
Thanks Amy for hosting.
Have a wonderful weekend.
