How gorgeous was yesterday? It was, what, 70 degrees in NYC?
Here’s me enjoying the last gasp of sunshine in a taxi on the way to the airport (Mom and I are presently in Canada for my grandmother’s 91st birthday).
And just to give you an idea of why I was a little bit sad to be abandoning such beautiful weather…
…this is a photo of my aunt and uncle’s house taken just a couple of weeks ago.
The flight we usually take gets in pretty late at night, but there are always homemade biscuits (the same family recipe I use) waiting for us when we arrive. You have to try making these; they’re so easy, and so delicious (you can substitute butter for shortening, but I don’t recommend it; it makes the biscuits a bit denser, and the fluffiness is what I like most about them).
Oh, and remember Sofia, my Aunt Trudy’s tiny, sweet, adorable baby sheepdog?
She grew up.
