Good Evening my dears..
Welcome to the Blessed Hearth tonight..
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.
We sure had a hot one for us ..
Our little village was full of people trying to get cooled off.. smile..
There were so many people that there were not any place left to park down by the caves..
I have never seen so many..
So many bikers went past my shop..
Dozens at a time, actually..
I hope they got cooled off..
Our son called from up home and said it was terrible..
He was working and had to go buy an air conditioner so he could sleep..
Then the other son said everyone was almost sick as it was so hot..
When it comes to heat a lot of us Maritimers just can't take it..
You Texans probably think we are a bunch of wimps...grin...
My hubby picked a bunch of strawberries on Friday so over the weekend we did up 7 batches of jam which was 49 jars..
I was so glad to get that job done.. Believe me..
Thank God our old cottage stays cool downstairs..
I picked a bunch of herbs and roses to make my moisturizing ointment..
Comfrey, lavender, plantain, and roses...
Sunday morning we went to church in St. John and had a wonderful service..
We had a chance to say good bye to our grandsons who were going to Youth Camp with their cousin (another of our grandsons) and his friend..
Praying they will have a blast but also that they will be inspired to draw closer to God..
Isn't that the sweetest thing?
My, I love ducks...
Today was cooler so I cooked a turkey supper..
They were on sale and I find it is so nice to have the leftovers in the fridge..
We have a lot of company here and turkey is so versatile for meals..
A soup is probably going to be made tomorrow..
It is going to be another cool and rainy day..
This is the strawberry rhubarb crisp I made for dessert..
It turned out lovely although I used splenda for some of it..
I used this recipe HERE..
For the fruit I used a mixture of both fruits and added at least a half cup of splenda to the fruit as rhubarb is sour..
It is a wonderful fast dessert..
Serve it with vanilla ice cream.. mmmmmm..
Terry loved it of course..
I hope you all are enjoying your summer days and thanks so much for your sweet comments..
I read each one although I have not been too good at responding as I seem to be busy.. So sorry..
Please forgive me..
I shall try to do better..
