Here’s a piece of surprising news — I am one of the six finalists for the Fabri Prize. My guess was that was about as likely as my sons sitting down quietly in the living room one evening and beading me a necklace, bracelet and matching tiara for Christmas.
They’d better get started, don’t you think?
Little House on the Prairie Report: Oops. I bought some perfume to celebrate. In fact, I bought an incredibly beautiful Guerlain fragrance called L’Heure Bleue. The blue hour. That gorgeous, slightly melancholy time between day and night, when many things are still possible, even if many things have already occurred. Which is how I think of these years, the middle of my life.
Otherwise, it’s all food, all the time, including last night’s dinner which consisted of the loveliest lamb chops I’ve ever eaten. Along with cous-cous that came in a box, rather than the bulk bin, and had a very tasty little flavor packet with some parmesan in it. Everyone really, really liked that.
Now, we just have to get rid of the Halloween candy and move on.
