Tuesday's "Three"

November 05, 2013

3 Things I'll Be Smelling This Week:

  1. Crockpot Bread baking.....have you ever tried this?
  2. Cinnamon Rolls 
  3. Adirondack Forest, Spa, Light Ale and Lavender soap.

3 Things Bringing Me Comfort This Week:
  1. Jay has the week off from work and is helping me with the business.....such a relief!
  2. The pellet stove.  There's nothing like the heat radiating from it on cool nights.
  3. Pumpkin Spice Tea.  I picked a tin of it up the other day and it makes the perfect drink in the evenings.

3 Things I've Found Around The Web:
  1. Love this!  How many times do I think, I'd like to trade lives, at least for a month or two, with so and so........  A lovely reminder that we all have "stuff".  
  2. I wish I had seen this project before we raked all the leaves.
  3. Coffee, chocolate and hazelnut buttercream all in one dessert?  Yes please!!
Happy Tuesday!!
