bits and pieces

This week I tried passion tea/lemonade, thanks for the reminder Leslie.  It was good and refreshing on a hot, sticky day.

This week I ate a desert that made me cry, seriously.  It was peach cobbler and it tasted just like my grandma’s.  It made me miss her.  That night I dreamed about her and woke up sad.  Funny thing when someone you love passes on, it seems as if they’re always still around.  And sometimes the missing comes on fresh and strong.

This week we found an ice cream blender at a junk shop. Woa boy, it’s dangerous.  Good, but dangerous.

And there’s been a little girl who insists on jammies all. day. long.

And yesterday I got to sit down with a cup of coffee and read the latest Country Living, in a quiet house.  Well, quiet for half an hour.  I’m not lying when I say it was nice.  Really nice.

This week we have tons of ripe tomatoes from the garden.  And so we are eating tons of bruschetta.  Yum.

The dog is always waiting for a handout, of bruschetta or something else.

And that’s been the week, with a good dose of schooling and housework mixed in.  

And this weekend?  

We have a clear schedule.  That’s right, nowhere we have to go or have to be.  I’m thinking it’ll be really nice.

What kind of plans do you have this weekend?  Are you like me and think a clear schedule is the best gift ever?


  1. Why do YOUR kids' messes on the floor look not as messy as MY kids' messes? How do you do it?? Seriously, it looks like art. Not fair at all.

  2. that ice cream maker is incredible!! such a good color! and how'd you like the PTL? it took a while for it to grow on me, actually, but now i love that it's not too sweet, and has some healthy value in the tea part. have a good weekend!


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
