Pizza. My boy wanted pizza this afternoon, finally, we might have a break! He’s slowly perking up, after three days of fever, fatigue, and general malaise – woo hoo! It’s so sad seeing him sick, breaks my heart. And of course he’s pretty tired of it himself, ha. Plus, he’d like to recover in time for my cousin Michael’s wedding this weekend. BIG Meyer Family event, all the uncles, aunts, cousins, sibs, half-sibs, parents, step-parents, boyfriends, girlfriends, you name it, they’ll all be there. Dinner Friday, wedding and reception Saturday, brunch Sunday. Par-tay! I love getting together with my Meyer family relatives, it’s always a terrific time. And a good chance for me to wear heels – we all range in height from 5’8″ to 6’5″. I kid you not. I’m right smack in the middle at 5’11”, ha. Love it. Big, toothy smiles and looooong legs, those define a Meyer. And a love for FOOD and cooking! I am such a Meyer!

I am NOT cooking tonight, however. I feel like I’ve been cooking for no one but myself for the last few days and it seems a little silly. I guess we are getting through most of it – John took lots of yummy leftovers for lunch today. And I partook of chicken, beans, and rice myself. Oh fine, maybe I will make dinner. Since I’m eating out for the whole weekend, I guess I’d probably better at least think about it…

Oooh, got my Molton Brown Naran Ji handwash today, yum. And a new shower gel, Inspiring Wild-Indigo, also amazing smelling. I’m telling you, one of life’s little luxuries, lovely bath products. Last forever and totally make my day. That and perfumes, candles, clean laundry, fresh air, flowers, nice wine, Nathan’s little-boy scent, John’s closet, cookies – basically anything that smells good.

(From top left to bottom right: Meyer smiles Nathan, Stacey, Marge, Mary, me; honorary Meyer smiles John and Suz, because their smiles are so real, warm, and awesome!)

Kept it very simple for dinner; John had the steak sandwich he couldn’t pull off for lunch. Me? A sublime, and pure, turkey, avocado, sweet onion sandwich on whole grain. I savored it, enjoying every..single.. bite. Sauteed the deli-sliced turkey a bit to warm it up, added it to whole grain, plus sliced, raw sweet onion, toasted it in the same pan, and right before I ate it I opened it up and spread it with avocado mashed with nothing but a bit of salt. No cheese – or anything else – needed. Fabulous.

    Hi Kelly! I'm so honored that you check in - love it. Your mom's playing pretty well, huh? And of course, you were raised to love great bath products! There was just a great article in the NYTimes Magazine about how the best frangrances right now are in bath products, I need to find it and post it on here. You'd LOVE it, if you didn't already see it. Enjoy your fragrant showers and baths, I'm sure you have great stuff - and definitely let me know what I'm missing, I'm sure there are many I don't know of! Take care, love, Stephanie

    Steph --

    It is such a delight to read your site. I feel I get a daily update of life back in MN. I have been meaning to tell you about the Molton Brown Inspiring Indigo--since I know you are such a big fan of her products. But, alas, you can't keep a product afficionado down-- you beat me to it! I think of you each time I grab this great bath gel.
