Snowed In Christina Bartolomeo
Three months after moving to Portland, Maine, for her husband Paul's job, Sophie begins worrying about her quiet life, her "safe" marriage and, particularly, Natalie, the snappy new assistant in her husband's office. Calls to her happily married sister, Delia, and her long-time friend, Marta, don't assuage her concerns, but Sophie, a freelance artist and proofreader with time on her hands, finds companionship by joining a local walking club. Great chick lit, I found this an easy read, with surprisingly clever insights. Since I'm feeling particularly snowed in this time of year, it's been a fun read!
Music previews on Amazon. I feel the need for some new tunes.
Baked potatoes. No zapped in the microwave, shriveled up spuds for this gal. If I can't do them the old fashioned way, I'd rather go without. Scrub, prick with a knife and bake 375 degrees for 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
Hostess 100 calorie chocolate cupcakes. I know, not homemade, and not healthy. But, oh so necessary. Sometimes I just want to grab some chocolate and although these are technically bite sized, it is just enough to fit those cravings. I always keep them in the freezer. I just like them better that way.
New hiking shoes. I've looked and looked and looked for new hiking shoes and I finally found them AND I got them at a bargain price. $39.99 Merrell hiking shoes. I've had Merrells in the past and I love them. These feel like I'm walking on air and they look cool too. So happy! They'll be great for hiking when we hit the Big Island!
Taking a little time to play with words, to play with food, and just to play!
