Tonight as I write this post it is thundering and pouring much needed rain. As my mother use to say "It's hotter than the hinges to hell"
We live in Northern New England, there is no central air in our house just one old wheezy air conditioner that we refuse to listen to so we haven't put it in the window yet. We did go for a quick swim before the storm to cool off at the local lake so that was something.
Some of you asked to see Sweet B's fairy houses,here are a couple.
Her grandfather also known as Pep helps her as you can see. This one had the cutest fence they made but something lugged it off! If I see a chipmunk with a fence around his hole I am going to lose it.
When she went for fairy nights each fairy she visited gave her things for her fairy houses so the mushrooms and little urns are some of the fairy gifts.
Speaking of Fairies this is a fairy rose that is loaded with buds!
This rose bush will bloom now until a hard frost.
My lavender is blooming time to make some lavender bottles/wands to put in my wool. Lavender is my favorite scent.
Since it has been so hot we have been camped out on the porch.
We have ceiling fans and usually some kind of breeze happens. this time of year instead of throwing out left over coffee I have a container in the frig for it. I make coffee ice cubes too so our coffee never waters down. A perfect afternoon pick me up.
We have been grilling and I wanted some bread for dinner, so I dug out my bread machine and put it on the porch to do its magic. No extra heat in the house. I made white bread but added a packet of garlic and herb dry soup mix . It came out perfect~
I have been feeling like we are in a rut for dinner so I dug out some of my cookbooks for some ideas. I have lots of bookmarks and some good ideas. I will let you know how they are. Grocery shopping tomorrow.
I was looking around and saw this on line. Should this be another craft for Sweet B and I???
I recently purchased a book of Poems by Athey
She is from England, how I love this sweet little book.
Her facebook page is Talesoftheoldforestfaeries
Sweet B is going to take riding lessons, no surprise there after last weeks ride. A girl and horses there is just something sometimes.
When she went home she told her parents we were rich! Lol
While we are far from money rich, we are rich in so many other ways. And having her in our lives makes us Billionaires!
Have a wonderful week!
