Cupping seasons.

Although last night I had all but the best of intentions to whip up another delicious home cooked meal, it didn't happen. Blame it on the combination of an impending cold and the lack of necessary ingredients at the store I shopped at for food essentials. My skillet chicken tetrazzini recipe will just have to wait. I'm thinking a perfect night for dining in may end up being Thursday.  Friday, I took off from work for a weekend visit to see close friends in DC. Knowing it's a short week makes these next few days that much more tolerable. Oh, and we're having a few special visitors over tonight, family from hubs side, which should make this evening quite enjoyable. I already have some yummy cucumber sandwiches and spinach dip planned as pre-dinner snacks. Mmmm.

Last night, I did manage to slip into bed early with a book and a hot cup of tea. I'm currently loving the flavor of Cinnamon Apple Spice. Why is it that I'm always two steps ahead? I, like everyone else it seems, am already daydreaming about the cool, crisp weather of Fall and August isn't even over yet. I can't wait for the scarves and sweaters to come out and play. Now that I think of it, I'm definitely going to be in the market for some new outerwear this year. I should probably start saving my pennies now. Maybe something with a hood. Oh, the possibilities!
