{the little joys of life....}

{petite chocolate tarts}


{a sweet joy}

Inside me there's a thin person struggling to get out,
but I can usually sedate him with 4 or 5
cupcakes. ~bol thaves~
{or tarts in my case}

I think my inner thin person took off for parts unknown and is refusing to come back. Hey, but I've lost 8 pounds!

Maria said...

Koralee... I'm tasting these tarts in my imagination... I can smell the chocolate... {after I write this, I'm popping some Ghirardelli chocolate chips in my mouth!}

Those chocolate crusts are amazing too!
and...
I can totally relate to the "thin person inside" She's still in there... and still 20 yrs. old LOL

How wonderful for 'just the two of you' to go camping! Do you use a tent or rent a cottage?
It's been soooo long since Chris and I went alone... now I'm thinking about a plan for next year!

Dad's doing okay... he's enjoying the family time... I'm spoiling him :o)
A nurse is coming over tomorrow who will help set him up with phys. therapy and assess his needs for safety etc. I'm so glad Dad is leaning into this and accepting the help.

Thank you, Koralee, for all your kind and thoughtful comments ... you're such an angel ♥
Blessings to you and your family as you enjoy these sweet weeks of August ~
love,
Maria
