Thank you all so much for the encouragement on the last post
This is just a speed bump and I WILL make it!
It's a scorcher outside today.
We had planned on taking the boat out until we found it that it was going to be a 100' day.
Since I haven't baked anything fun lately, It was time to make something new.
I pulled out one of my favorite cookbooks, The Gooseberry Patch Cake, Cookies and Brownie book.
Gooseberry Patch Rocks!
I made an easy cookie called Twist Cookies and they are delicious.
I love my little old kitchen.
Some days when i come in to the cleaned kitchen,
I smell great food cooking and see a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers from my garden
and It takes my breath away and I feel like a queen.
I'm not one who requires big and fancy.
Growing up we were dirt poor, moving in and out of apartments and slums
.. My mom never had a real kitchen to call her own much less the money to buy enough food to cook in it.
We live in a little old house
In crappy Baltimore city
and it is warm and loved and we have so much history here.
I think of my mom and how she would have loved to have been blessed with a little house like this.
A family like mine.
and I am humbled.
Someday before we leave this house
I would love some new (wooden) counter tops and a matching floor.
Mr and Mrs Claus are celebrating Christmas in July.
They were a Christmas gift from my friend Marge
and we decided then that we would leave them out all year long.
These boys are just dying for a taste.
Did I give them some..
~ Lazy.. yes.
Just one more.. Please?
Since it is Table top Tuesday I will show you how
I "reset" the dining table top the other day.
I love how the flowers look in the blue sand pail.
The Black Eyed Susan's ( Maryland state flower) are from my front garden
and the blue hydrangeas are fake.
How do you like those blue polka dot PAPER plates..
I am in search of some funky glass versions.
Look what I found on the patio table this morning..
A baby stink bug!!
The battle shall begin!
Have a fantastic day everyone!!
