Useful and Beautiful

Trying to clean up on this rainy summer weekend.
I've allowed stress and illness push me to the edge and it's time to do a little healing and house cleaning.
Recently I was in New Orleans and had a really good cup of cafe au lait. So I brought a can of it home with me. The beignets were good too, but I had to leave those!

Looks Magical!

Beasts of the Southern Wild: 
Faced with her father's fading health and environmental changes that release an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs, six-year-old Hushpuppy leaves her Delta-community home in search of her mother.

1st time filmmaker and 1st time actress. Love little hidden gems like this. Can't wait to see it.
