This is my dear friend Charisse, 
photographer extraordinaire.
She has taken photos of both Everett

hopefully put the 
non-hodgkin’s lymphoma 
she was diagnosed with
7 1/2 years ago
into remission once and for all.
She has a blog,
Check it out.
If you can,
please make a donation to 
help with the huge cost.
You can do that
Keep her in your thoughts.

titane tisane

Found these candles this past weekend.
I am so picky about what I smell.
This line of candles is divine.
My favorite is ST. JOHN'S WOOD.
st john's wood: looking through the bent backed tulips. 
smoldering chimney smoke. dried vines & brick walls. 
If you want one...go here.

fish recipe

Another recipe for you.
I am loving the DOUBLE L's fresh fish.
You must go and buy whatever they have.
Halibut, Salmon or Cod...

Lloyd told me how to grill 
the most perfect salmon.
Today I will pick up the halibut I reserved
and maybe make this!
It's a morrocan fish stew by that
