Dear May 2023,
I'm not sure what I did to you, but it was clearly something because for the third week now, "things haven't gone as planned".
"Now what?" you might ask. Lemme tell you. I made my mom a very special Mother's Day dinner last Saturday night. Herbed filet-mignon, Dauphinoise potatoes, broccoli gratin and cheated and picked up two different cakes for dessert. I came home from dropping her back at her place only to find that Mr. Chocolate decided to climb up on a ladder while I was gone, and of course, he fell off.
Landed HARD on his heel which we thought he fractured but "men" so did we go to the ER that night? No. The next day? "But it's Mother's Day"! He'd shopped for brunch, which I made because did I mention he couldn't stand? Monday: "Lets see how it goes". Finally, Tuesday we went. Whew. Wasn't fractured because we learned that if it had been, he'd have had to have spinal imaging since that would mean the force was strong enough to potentially damage the spine. Oh, and surgery for the heel. So again, "whew" that it wasn't but he's been using his desk chair to scoot around the house and it's a good thing we have tile floors and no carpet. He can't sneak up on me though because clackity clack, I hear you coming Oswald Cobblefoot!
Needless to say, another week of not doing anything creative! I'm afraid to think what the last week in May might have in store. I hope everyone had a less eventful and fun Mother's Day weekend and let's see what you've been up to this week!
Can you ever have too many reusable bags? Love this Repurposed Jeans Bag from Me and My Inklings! Perfect for Summer.
One of the best things I ever bought was a HUGE roll of Kraft Paper. Seriously, it's got to be 20 years old and I still have about 1/4 of it left and like Steph Creates, have used it for pretty wrapping projects. i love the combination here of rustic and floral.
Like Bananas Foster? Then you will want to check out this Bananas Foster Cocktail from Cook Eat Go !
Finally, I too love Gooey Brownies. These from A Day of Small Things look PERFECT!
Thanks to everyone who linked up and if this was your first time, Welcome! Now let's see what everyone's been up to this week.
