Each chapter is delicious and I am indulging like I would eat a chocolate,
slowly letting it melt in my mouth.
Jamie takes us on a journey where she shares the secrets of French women and their secrets to feeling beautiful everyday...
she has interviewed many women while doing her research and I love to hear their "voices" on many topics. I am halfway through the book and look forward to the next chapters...
but like any good book when you reach the end, you are left craving for more.
With this in mind I am pacing myself because I do not want it to end!
Pretty pink native lilies are in bloom in a field nearby our Humble Bungalow.
My orchid is re-blooming...
these plants are really a bargain
they bloom several times a year for many years
all they need is water once a week and some filtered light
I'm tempted to pick up another one as they are on sale at the flower shop.
Our garden has many hellebores
this one is a mass of blooms and shows no signs of stopping.
I've seen the black variety of this plant in the gardens at Van Dusen in Vancouver
I have yet to track it down locally but it is very definitely on my wish list!
Our asparagus patch is in it's second year and we must not harvest any until the third season.
It does make my mouth water just thinking of how delicious it will be when we can pick some.
It's raining cats and dogs outside this morning and I am hunkered down under the down duvet...
indulging in a little rest and relaxation.
It's been a long work week that found me very tired by Friday.
Mr. HB suggested we go out for dinner last evening but I was too tired to get dressed up
so we ordered in some delicious Chinese food and I read more of Jamie's book.
In her book she stresses that all women should feel beautiful
regardless of their physical size or their financial state.
I am loving her tips and the insights into the French Femmes
which focuses on "la femme d'un certain age."
from this femme d'un certain age!

I'll be back soon and in the meantime I hope that you are well and in good spirits
have a beautiful weekend!
