|Gerbera Daisies ordered from Amazon|
|Another Gerbera daisy plus some wildflower pots|
Finally the daisies are flowering, yellow, white and pink. The wildflower seeds are taking, and seem to be working up to flowers
the packet of seeds said Spring/summer/fall, and we just broadcast them into 5 pots to see what's here.
I wanted some kind of vegetable dish to have with lunches, so dh mentioned trying to purchase 3 bean salad. I thought, heyyyyy bet I can find a recipe
I used what we had, 1/4 of a really big red onion not half, dried parsley not fresh, fresh basil instead of rosemary, cans of white beans (not canneloni) black eyed peas (no kidney beans) and green beans. No cider vinegar to buy here so I used the last of my champagne vinegar.
Still, it's kind of like the recipe and it's delish. It does make an awful lot for two people (three cans of beans, duh!) but it should taste better as it ages. Better for us than chips as a side too.
speaking of quilting
I ran across this book listed on quilt books published this year... I'm in love but it is pretty expensive at $35
Now here is an answer to weeds and brush fires... thank God for Goats and their ability to eat
Goats for Good!
Remember when you help others you can land a treat!
have you heard of the ICAD challenge? Index card a day for 61 days... any art goes, anything you want to do to the card that day... list something, color or paint or ink, stencil, collage with torn magazine pages, words, fabric, anything creative. All on a small index card.
I read about this on the alteredbooklover site, and saw a week's worth of her art. SO COOL!
Milo: Hey Mama! I hear chasing a spoo (standard poodle) around the yard is good exercise!
Mama: well it's so hot honey, and you're pretty fast, I'm wearing sandals...
Milo: Oh. My. Dog. Just come out and chase me! It's my biggest pleasure in life! Next to my ring toy, then being chased around. Er, well I do like my chew bone each night, getting in the big bed and laying on my back between you and daddy, eating sweet potatoes, sitting in my armchair, barking at people, playing hide and seek... heh heh... I do like being chased around the yard though
|Dad? pay attention, time to chase a poodle!|
