Good Tuesday morning, my friends! In yesterday's post I mentioned, very briefly, that I'd like to do a post about Summer Pocketbooks, but if you didn't read all the way to the end of the post (which was all about... Continue reading

Happy Monday, my friends! Are you enjoying the fruits (and veggies, herbs, etc.) of the season? So much to look forward to, but right now our rhubarb plant is growing like mad! With our latest harvest I made a nice... Continue reading

Francine, I spray my pan (or foil) lightly with Pam. And I flip them around a bit with a spatula halfway through cooking. They still stick a little but Bill likes them extra crispy and this helps with that a bit!

Arlene, I will ask my mum! We're making more cakes this weekend for Bookworm and all the dads! :)
Thank you, everyone! I will pass on the good wishes to my little guy! :)

(Daisies: innocence ... Strawberries: perfect goodness) I love to keep a seasonal "bouquet" on my kitchen windowsill ... and this week it's a small gathering of field daisies and wild strawberries, gathered by my younger boys for their mama. I... Continue reading

You decide. :) A day of rain followed by a sunlit morning = sparkling greenery in the herb patch! This is Lady's Mantle, one of my favorite "green" plants. More vibrant green to be found in these ferns which grow... Continue reading

Mary, you are so sweet! Thank you for all your kind words and the many helpful links! I can't wait to check them out. I am so hungry for herb info these days! I am very excited to grow them - and USE them - as you mentioned, for medicinal and home keeping purposes. I have them all planted now and will be posting soon - full of questions, I'm sure! So glad you are all ok after all that scary weather! We are expecting thunderstorms here this week but hopefully no tornado warnings! As for the maps and calendar that were on the wall, we are currently considering where to hang them! :) Blessings, my friend! :)

Oh, a Barred Owl, Penny! They are so beautiful. We had one visit our yard the first summer we were here. He landed on our fence and I got a rather blurry picture. I have not seen one since but we can hear one in the woods ... such a haunting yet lovely sound. Hope all is well with you, my friend ... :)

Susie, it's been a while since I did this but I think I brushed on some regular school glue (lightly) for adhering the dove. Hope that helps! :)

Tracy, he's working on it! He's got some yard work lined up and tutoring but he's not sure what else the summer will hold ... I think he's still decompressing from finals!
