Dear friends,

We had a gullywasher yesterday. Mr. Mom noted last night the weather “rained out” his Sunday. Me? It made my day.

There was no guilt to be found in watching four movies in a row — You’ve Got Mail, Splendor in the Grass, Where the Boys Are, and Last of the Mohicans. I have seen all of them before, but couldn’t resist four diverse love stories on a rainy day. It seemed urgent. It seemed vital.

And three helpings of Pioneer Woman’s Baked French Toast spread throughout the day was just the anti-motivation I needed to stay put.

With gratitude {for a great satellite movie package, a comfy new sofa, and the best “breakfast” times 3 I can remember in a long time},

Joan, who thinks no greater cinematic beauty has ever been filmed than Deanie Loomis (Natalie Wood) in her white dress and hat at the end of Splendor in the Grass



  1. I’ll yield to anyone who has/will eat 3 breakfasts in one day. That sort of convention defying sensibility is what truly makes this country great!!!

  2. Deb: I would add — “makes this country great . . . and rotund!!!” (At least in my case. Seriously. Do not ever make PW’s baked french toast. You will want to eat the entire pan.)
