Husband brought home some flowers. My mother always bought these for me for my birthday it is in Aug and they are my birth flower.
Husband has been helping clean out a barn a few towns over and noticed this sign and took them up on their offer...
"Sit a bit enjoy God's view"
They were right it is a nice view! I love that kind of thing on the back roads of NH. The glads were a road side stand that said "Glads ahead" and after you passed them " you just went by the glads!"
And speaking of views we got up early Sat morning trying to beat the heat and picked 8 quarts of blue berries. The bushes were loaded. Because everyone was picking the tops I sat in the grass and picked the bottoms and found 5.00! It was soaking wet from the night before and half in the mulch so I called it a tip and kept picking. Speaking of finding money we walk our little dead end road every night and first husband found a penny in the road, the next night I did? Very strange for a little dead end road with hardly any traffic where did they come from?
I put them in 1 quart bags and froze them.
I bought the last pint of local strawberries I made a dutch baby added the strawberries on the top and made a cream cheese drizzle yummmm
My basil plants runneth over so I made a batch of pesto with more to come, I freeze it in ice cube trays and then transfer to a bag. Great for pasta, soups and stews all winter long.
I am working on finishing up my stair runners...
Only three more to do, I am designing the rest of them.
Next up fire flies a picture next week.
I saw someone on facebook ask how to clean the grippers and people were telling her how and saying but I have never seen them that bad. Yikes mine were pretty bad. I got out the vacuum and good as new.
Husband brought home a grain measure for me. I have wanted one but not willing to pay the price. This is just wonderful!
It is bent oak and has the name of the maker stamped on the bottom. It was made in a little town in NH. I just love the patina!
I have chased the deer out of the yard 3 times more!
and yes she makes me swear! She is eating her way through my hosta garden.
Something else makes me swear. I was side swiped while grocery shopping this morning early. No note, nothing, I called the PD and they are going to look at the footage at the store and call me tomorrow. He feels he will find the person. It was 7 am and I was one of about 6 cars parked up front and right beside a full size white pick up hmmmm that makes me swear!
I have a crooked little stick in a watering can as my mask drying rack. I am washing them as I use them and trying to keep covid away from us!
Have a wonderful week!
