There was an upside to the sad state of my sweet girl though -- it forced us to slow to a crawl for the entire weekend. I left the house exactly twice: to procure provisions from the Whole Foods and to scare up something to wear to the D Moms launch party tonight (more on that later). Otherwise it was two days of reading, watching movies, and cooking restorative, fallish meals like my beloved Alice Waters carrot soup. Topped with a dollop of crème fraîche and served with a salad and some crusty bread and for a minute all was right with the world. It's that good.
Hope you had a splendid weekend.
