Getting on with Summer....












Hello everyone.. 
Just a few pics this evening... 

Passing through the city of St. John which is known here in Canada as the Loyalist City ( a very old city) with it's famous port on our way to Fredericton again yesterday.. 

Our tomatoes are growing well.. I made a Quebec Green Tomato Soup for Supper but I don't think it was good enough to pass along the recipe.. Very different and I am glad I tried it but will not do so again. smile.. 

Also... a few pics at the shop today.. 
It was so hot that mostly people just went by on their way to the beach.. 
I don't blame them.. grin.. 

Still have lots of old dishes if you would like them ... 
Just kidding..

Making some wonderful pesto to freeze with the basil I bought at the Farmers Market on Saturday.. 

And there is dear old Sammi ...
 Gone home with Terry for a couple of days.. 
They will be busy doing lawns and gardening stuff.. 

I am doing some tidying.. 
Terry got the deck painted and most of the roof mess is on the other side so I put it all back to rights this morning.. 
Love sitting out there in the dusk and feeling the wind on my face.. 
Drinking my lovely lemon cordial...

Lindsay bought one at the market ..Then when I got home I made one like hers.. She paid $3.50 for it.. 
I just put a 1/4 of the glass of the cordial  (recipe HERE ), added a slice of lemon and lime.. Topped it with water and ice cubes.. 
It is delicious... 
I would love to find a glass glass with a cover though instead of this one from MacDonald's.. grin.. 
Perhaps they have one at Chapters... 

Thanks for visiting and looking forward to hearing from you all.. 
God bless...

  3. Hello Dear Heart......What a nice assortment of enjoyable pictures. I liked seeing Fredericton....all the colors and different shapes of the buildings. Your shop looks lovely. I want to come there but "the boss" says it is too far. I would love your shop. It was so hot here again today. I am getting ready for the humidity to leave mighty fast!

  4. You should've left those mators ripen to a nice juicy red,I suppose. Eh?

    Oh my... I would love to carouse/peruse your shop. I love old dishes. They would have so many stories to tell, wouldn't they?

    I went to go find your Lemon Cordial recipe. Sounds easy and delish!
    Have a wonderful evening.

  7. I think glass glasses with a lid are hard to find. I have looked for them as well. I love sitting outside late in the evening too. Perhaps we are sitting out at the same time. I like that thought. Enjoy your day and God bless.

  8. I like that thought, too, Donna...
    Blessings, my dear...

  10. Those glasses with the lid and a straw are very common and available just about anywhere in the US. I have 3 in my cabinet. I feel certain you could order them online from Amazon.

  17. Your store looks so sweet, I would so love to have a look through it. I would look for plates and accessories that had small turquoise flowers on them. I found six plates on Wed. that look very nice in my turquoise kitchen.
    St Johns looks so pretty, I hear one of the churches is looking for a pastor, do you know if they've found one yet?
    Enjoy your weekend, sweet friend.
    Hugs, Cindy

    1. Hi Cindy... So glad you dropped by.. I have a little collection of plates that you would love.. I think... If you were only closer.. St. John is looking for a pastor still as far as I know.. That is where our daughter's family attends and we do in the Summer.. A wonderful church..
      Blessings...
