rain, rain, feel free to stay. well, for a little while, anyway. if there's one thing that inspires me, it's a day like today...overcast, a constant steady rain, and a nice chill in the air. it always puts me in "nesting mode". what a perfect day to whip up a batch of laura's double chocolate thumbprint cookies, or spoil my dutch boy by making kate's orange and chocolate cheesecakes for dessert. and while that's in the oven, i think a little nesting is in order in my studio (actually, its such a mess, it's starting to look more like "the land of no return"). oh yeah, a little nesting, a little baking, a little regrouping. it really is a perfect day.
