Happy Weekend my dears...
And for us New Brunswickers a Happy Long Weekend..
Monday is New Brunswick Day...
We are celebrating the best province in Canada although,
I guess I may be a wee bit prejudiced... smile..
Our sweet grandsons have left and gone back to their homes..
We certainly enjoyed having them..
As for us we are back to doing the ordinary things..
Terry is still up on the roof..
Literally... Here it is almost 8:30 pm and he is still pounding nails..
It will be great when he has his two projects done..
One is the roof and the other is our back wee deck..
It is only large enough for an umbrella table and chairs and then a couple of extra chairs and some planters..
It needed fixed and painted..
The poor guy..
The second deck and the second roof he has had to do since Spring..
He says it is good for what ales ya..
Have you ever heard that saying? grin...
As you probably noticed I have not been posting a lot..
I think you dear girls need a break from my boring chatter and perhaps read something a bit more inspiring..
But here I am tonight anyhow...
This is such a lovely time of year as far as herbs go..
Here are some dill, rosemary and basil...
I managed to put all three into supper... smile..
Plus... I made this Garlic and Rosemary Jelly...
It is delicious...
The recipe is HERE
I have it at the shop just in case you were wondering.. smile..
I poached some fish for supper...
Dill, parsley and green onions..
The recipe is HERE
I always cut up my herbs with a pair of scissors..
I find it does it easier then chopping them on my chopping board.. Most of the time anyway...
I gathered some plantain here..
I will be putting it in oil to make some ointments..
I made some and have it at the shop...
It is for very dry skin and turned out rather well..
Tomorrow is kind of an exciting day for me..
Lindsay (one of the Keepers) and I are going to Kings Landing Historical Village to take a class on Herbs and Medicines...
We are both looking forward to it so I hope to have a bunch of pics for you..
Kings Landing is my favorite place to go to..
I tell everyone I need to go there at least once a year for my fix.. grin...
So totally inspiring to me...
The sun seems to be setting much earlier on the Bay of Fundy these days..
I told Terry at supper that we will soon be going home..
Another 5 or 6 weeks ...
Thank you all for dropping by and visiting..
Please forgive me for not posting nor catching up with your lovely blogs...
But Lord willing things will slow down and I will be more up to it..
I seem to have a reading craze on when I get here..
Something about this place brings out the bookworm in me.. grin..
Take care, dear hearts and I look forward to your lovely notes..
PS... I am going to start replying to your comments here on the blog rather than try to email you back which I do not do well..
Hopefully, I will do this better..
Tomorrow, I am going away but will get back later to reply to your comments..
Do you think that would be better ???
