I'm a Big Fat Sponge

Our four-day staycation has been fanflippin'tastic.  We've been out and about but today, day four, we're hoping for big fat raindrops or a wicked snowstorm. 

Check out my new books.  One used, one with a coupon.  Both good deals.  I love Jacques Pépin.  Each time I watch his show (which is always), I learn something new.  These books are companions to his show. 

I'm like a big fat sponge, soaking it all in. 

So today I'm plopping my butt in The Lemon Tart Room with my Pépin books.  With any luck, I'll do so during a nice big storm and a good cuppa something warm.

Thanks to all you Boogerbutts for keeping up on my blog even though I haven't visited Bloggerville in what feels like forever.  Planning on catching up next week. 

Until then, cheers and boogie boogie.

  1. Ivy, where on earth do you live that you might see snow? We've gotten rain here this weekend, but snow is out of the question when it's in the eighties and humid as hell.

  2. Sounds like you're definitely going to have a lovely day! It looks like rain here and even though it's a bit hot and humid, I think I might have to have some hot chocolate! Love watching Mr. Pepin's show as well!

    1. We didn't even get rain. Some over night, but that's okay. It's been a killer four-day autumn-like staycation.

      I've never been to Texas, but I hear it's HOT!

    1. I am kidding. Though I'd be happy with a big fat snow storm.

  9. Sounds like a great time, Wonder Woman! Our staycation is now officially over. It's been a great time, although a few days this week the weather was awful. But we made the best of it. At least today was nice and we spent it biking. Now it's time to call it a day, watch a little TV before bed, and munch on some popcorn. 'Nite 'nite!

    1. Very cool that on your last day, you got to go for bike rides. Neato stuff. Sounds like you guys really took advantage of your time off together, and that is a wonderful thing.

      Our four-day staycation is over too, but boy, was it ever nice. Very autumn-like summer we've had here. LOVE IT.

    1. Hi Jen: These books are the companion for his shows. So many of them I already have seen, but now instead of taking notes, I have the books.
