{a delicious weekend}

I was a bit of a
domestic goddess
this weekend

the weather was cozy
and my oven was calling my name
plus I needed a cookie or two
to go along with my tea
xox
hope you are ready for a great new week

My friend Aly came over to my house and baked cookies this week. How great is that? Tonight my husband and I sadly polished off the last of them. Now what will I have with my tea?

It must be the weather...When it get cool, I just want to start a fire in the fireplace and pull out my favorite recipe books. Am trying to get as much white paint applied as possible, before the weather changes for good...hugs...rosie

Today felt like fall for the first time. Not that I don't ever stop drinking tea, but it seems like the perfect weather to drink tea in. It sounds like you had a lovely weekend! Happy Monday! xo

the weather has been quite cozy in paris this weekend too! Feels like november...

I would have had some cookies but I am starting a new "regime" to cutback my out of control sugar intake! Something is wrong when I wake up in the morning and every first thought is pain au chocolat....héhé.

always a pleasure to stop by and hear your thoughts and see your pretty pictures...

You could write another "mouse" book...."If you give a girl a cup of tea she will have to bake a cookie to go along with it!"

Your blog is always so delicious....Hope your week is too!

A cookie is the perfect compliment to any cup of tea, yummy :)

Petit Coterie said...

It's been a stormy day here, the kind where you just want to curl up on the couch with a good book in hand. Of course a good cup of tea and a cookie would top it off.

~Carrie from Cottage Cozy~ said...

I have missed you too, Koralee! Hope you have had a wonderful summer! I look forward to getting back into the groove! Hugs!

Maria said...

Hi Koralee!
Funny ~ We're baking right now too ~ Amanda and I...
Guess what's in the oven?
... ... YUP!
Apple pie
and
Coconut macadamia nut sugar cookies!

I'd love cooler weather for this, but this week it's warm and sunny ...
Gotta keep peeling those apples of ours!
Today was your first day of school... how was it? Do you have a day or two of meetings?
My "meeting day" is Sept. 7 and we greet a new school year with the students on Sept 8.
Didn't summer fly!?!
God bless this new year for all of us!
Have a great day tomorrow, Koralee!
love,
Maria

Hi Koralee,

How neat that you did some baking in the weekend. Great when the domestic Goddess can come out!
Our DD made some beautiful spiced muffins and they have all been eaten, but one.

Hope that you are having a lovely weekend

I had an injection of Synvisc in my knee and am resting up a bum leg to go to Prague and Croatia in a week and a half. So I was basically lying down like a princess.
