Happy Friday Evening, everyone..
Here we are at the end of another Summer's week..
Terry and I have been busy pickling as you can see..
He brought down sixty pounds of cukes and they are finished and some are sold already..
I had fun making a new kind in the first picture..
A dear wee friend here in St. Martins grows grapes and let me have some grape leaves and another grows horseradish and gave me a few roots so I made a Deli pickles that I have wanted to try for literally years..
They look delicious and can't wait to try them..
It takes a few weeks though before they are ready..
Then we made Sweet Dill, Garlic Dill, Bread and Butter and Ginger Slices...
Hopefully, we will get more done next week..
It is also herb time and so I made a Nasturtium Vinegar.. Isn't it pretty?
It is a bit peppery, too..
Just use a good vinegar and throw in some nasturtium blossoms and a bit of hot pepper flakes..
Leave on your sill for a week or two..
The Rosemary Salt is just a jar of coarse salt with Rosemary added to the sides and throughout..
Delicious with Chicken or such..
I made some foot powders to sell at the shop..
Lavender and Peppermint..
Keeps the feet smelling sweet.. grin..
We were out to Shonda and Dave's for a lovely meal..
This view was from one of her windows..
New veggies and some lovely salmon fillet...
Her Dad's favorite.. smile..
Our grandsons do not like me putting their pics on here and usually I try not to but just look at how they are growing..
They are all turning into young men.. Already...
Where has the time gone?
I will share pics with you of her new home as soon as she gets it all organized..
A lot of window coverings to figure out.. smile..
Here is a new item added to the shelves at the shop...
Lots of enamelware..
Some of it has sold this week but it is very pretty..
Today, I realized that Summer is really drawing to an end..
My sweet cousin Dan and his family came to say good bye as they close down their Summer home and head back to Montreal for another year of teaching at the University..
I so love this sweet family and could not help but shed a tear as they pulled away...
This Summer has slipped through the cracks and is almost over..
Another Summer of memories and sweet reunions..
But you all know how I love to get back home..
I just told a friend that I am not going to whine about getting back home this year..
But just another two weeks and we will be done..
Well dearies, thanks so much for your visit and comments..
Love them all and hope you have a great weekend..
Nighty night, sweet friends..
