The summer solstice happened this week.
Let summer begin.
I am trying to get up early to walk. I need
to take off a few more pounds. It has been harder than it has ever been. I was happy being a chubby grandmother but because of a little health blip I needed to lose some weight.
So I walk and diet.
I found this hand thrown bowl for 1.00 it is dated 1958 I thought I would use it for my worms.
I am working on stair risers slow but sure.
I also have a stack of books calling my name I want to read.
There is just not enough hours in the day!
Because I have been trying to lose weight I haven't been cooking or baking much (so sad it makes me so happy to cook) So I did a batch of scones. Sat morning I had half a scone and half today.
I took a few to a friend So there is just enough for Husband.
I was also given a 1/2 of a gallon of very very ripe strawberries.
So I dug out the ice cream maker and made some strawberry ice cream. Which I like but I can stay away from that no problem
with the rest of the strawberries,I made some compound butter for my scones sooo yummy.
Today we drove to Vermont for lunch at king Arthur Flour.
I had a salad and husband had an amazing sandwich on their amazing bread. I stopped for a coffee on the way out and husband grabbed a couple of goodies. We are having Sweet B overnight tomorrow night so we have something yummy for a treat.
Tomorrow is husband's birthday. 7 years ago we didn't think he had 6 months to live. A very long road but we are so grateful for each birthday and for this life we have!
Next weekend we are off to a friends house for a very large lake side clam and lobster bake. Yea for Summer!
Have a great week!
