Notes from the weekend:

A double batch of banana bread, (one for now, one to freeze), strawberry shortcake with garden strawberries and soft mounds of fresh whipped cream, cat naps, an excellent book, Anthony Doerr's new novel, All The Light We Cannot See, carving stamps with inspiration from Geninne's lovely book, Making an Impression, making thank you notes from the stamps and using neon yellow ink!, smelling the roses that are in full bloom around town, finding two flour leaf clovers on a long morning walk, and enjoying a little bit of rain.
