Galileo Galileo let me go

Not really a Queen fan, but the title just seemed oh so appropriate.  It's one of my days off today, so I am being lazy and I have a rump roast in the slow-cooker for dinner tonight.  Also did some house keeping, and work on a painting for my friend Vivienne. I was also thinking about making up some sort of carrot cake muffin or loaf?  When I went to the vegetable store yesterday they had a huge bag of irregular shaped carrots for $1.  I love irregular shaped vegetables, they are usually on sale, taste just as good, and since you usually cut them up anyways, they do not make a difference in cooking.

Does anyone have a really tasty recipe for carrot cake loaf?  I was thinking that might be a tasty and sweet way to use up some of the carrots.

I received this dress at the end of the summer, and had not worn it yet.  It is by Hayden Harnett and called the Galileo Dress.  I had not worn it yet because it is a bit low cut and I felt exposed, but now that the weather is a bit cooler, I can use it as a layering piece.  The cut of the dress is fantastic, nips in at the waist just so, and the length is perfect.  The middle of the dress has trapunto detailing with a diamond and then a starburst formation.  I will definitely be reaching for this dress more in the next few months.

Green and Blue stone necklace - my mother's co-worker I think?


  1. You are looking fantastic in Hayden and Hartnett from head to toe. And the weather is looking pretty calm up in Canada. I don't cook often. But Carrot Cake is one of my weaknesses. It must have spices, raisins, walnuts and plenty of Cream Cheese Frosting and some Apricot Jam on top.

    I have been looking at boots on Anthro. Why do I have such a fear of full length boots? But I do love my booties and mid calf boots. I have one pair of fabulous Area Forte's. So comfortable. I want a couple pairs of Schuler and Son's this Season.

  2. Such a flattering dress! And those boots! Oh my goodness - so gorgeous!
