  13. First of all, meatloaf and mash potatoes? You're making me hungry. I've been gardening all afternoon and wish I could have that for dinner (not to make it myself or course!)

    The BBD is just lovely. It's such a wonderful happy design. Can't wait to see how you will frame it. I'm sure it will be wonderful.
