I am comfortably perched on the porch under the ceiling fan so
I thought I would tell you about my week.
I got an odd Thursday off so we packed up the kayaks and headed out. peaceful...
This is a smallish pond no motors allowed so perfect for us and quiet.
And it has blueberries yummy wonderful wild blueberries.
This is husband he wanted the ones higher up but normally we can pick from our kayaks. Yes he had it tied to his foot, and yes it was a comedy show watching him get back in on the slippery rocks without flipping his boat. Oh the things he will do for berries.
I love the tiny blueberries so sweet and wonderful. I did make blueberry muffins from a new recipe. Now I have made a lot of muffins in my day but this was the best muffins ever, everyone agreed.
Not sure if I have readers who are bakers here but if you want the recipe email me.
Sat we met up with friends and headed for a garden walk put on by a local garden club. This was the sweetest house and gardens in a very busy area.
This garden was right in the city, they had a double lot and they had gardens that went on forever with water features and little places with seats to sit and enjoy the garden. (That would be my sweet friend Lynn.)
I was completely blown away but these gardens how they made an oasis in the city. They even had chickens! I could post a thousand pictures of this property but I will spare you. Just lovely.
The last house we went to in the description it said that the owner was a quilter and was opening their home for you to see their long arm quilter and see some of the quilts. So in we went and my jaw dropped to the floor!
His wife was an amazing rug hooker!!! Not one mention of her being an artist and rug hooker! Kind of ticked me off.
Why would anyone not mention her work???
Her name is Diane Pepin just a lovely woman and artist
she was working on a stain glass window from her church in a 2 cuts yikes!
What wonderful work she does,great color.
I finally hung my cupboard or husband did. I am off center not the cupboard.
And here it sits in the family room over an old shipping crate
that husband made legs for.
we are in the heat again but we have been blessed with wonderful weather. Cool breezy sleeping nights and bright warm days.
I hope you are enjoying your summer it is slipping way fast.
Have a great week.
