Friday, October 19
I went grocery shopping at Walmart last night to get most of the things that we will need for Sunday's feast, but I saved the more gourmet items for a trip to our fancier market this morning. I bought cheese, meat, olives, and fruit for the charcuterie board, perfect roses, and fresh rolls (that I enjoy toasted for weekday breakfasts). After quickly putting everything away, it was a joy to take out my secateurs to trim the roses and look through my vases to select the perfect vessel for the centerpiece. It was a moment of peace in an otherwise crazy day.
