F r e n c h b r e a d o n f r i d a y . . .

b o n j o u r L o v e l i e s !

bonnes bénédictions vendredi . . .

{ inspired by: sipping, seeking and sharing. }

up at 4:45.

  that's the weekday routine around here.

early risers.

i have always said, "we live on farm time temps de la ferme!"

fresh coffee.  make a lunch to go.

it's garbage day.  the cans are out.

donation day.  the box is on the lower steps.

with my mug of café noir in hand, i bid Mr D un adieu!

in my comfort zone . . . sipping, seeking and sharing.

Good Friday.

good life.

pinned my dip and dye inspiration for Saturday . . .

for  F b o F ?

when i landed on this image of sweet brioche lapins,

i immediately tagged it for today!

"Papa qu'est –ce que tu fais encore ?!..." 

you are going to love Dorian's blog.

"having fun in the kitchen to do things ... not always neither reasonable nor serious."

i love how his baking stories translate from français to me.

b l e s s i n g s a n d a p e r f e c t l y a p p r o p r i a t e p a s s . . . j u s t t h e r i g h t m e d i c i n e !

h e l l o L o v e l i e s !

{ inspired by:  "two guys at Costco" kindness }

in my previous post, i made reference to my . . . i'm going to say it . . .

 c r a - - - . . . (sorry) i hate that word . . . cold.

i also featured  French sneeze responses, inspired by 

how many times i sneezed last week.

 i was a sneezing machine.

i must have sneezed into my arm over 150 times.

at home.

at work.

i tried to shut in, to save the masses.

one night on the way home from work, i had to make a Costco run.

while in the check out line . . . another "sneeze - a - palooza" ensued.

when i finished . . .

. . . a thoughtful

. . . came from a handsome young dad in the line next to me.

( he was wearing a bright plaid shirt.)

the blessing felt good.

i was touched by his kindness.

i headed out to my car and loaded the groceries into the trunk.

i had just placed the last item into the trunk when i heard . . .

i passed!

there was a perfect cart reception!

. . . and with one shove, it was in the cart park!

(the gentleman, in his late 40's,  was very clean cut, with a tie dyed t-shirt on!)

i was laughing as i said, "why thank you, sir!"

i looked in my rear view mirror, he got into his new red Ford Mustang,

and popped the sun roof. (it was 65 degrees.)

(what a nice, fun and thoughtful person.)

(you ROCK, mister!)

how could one not feel better?

what happened next took the smile from my face for about 20 seconds.

someone cut me off, almost hitting me and another car.

( i nearly went n e g a t i v e . . . )

think about the nice guys!

. . . happy, kind and thoughtful.

. . . bold enough to embrace a beautiful spring day in bright preppy plaid, and a tie dyed shirt!

. . . two wild wonderful & crazy caring guys!

sort of . . .

Saturday Night Live meets Chicken Soup For The Soul!

way cool!
