First of all I want to thank you all for dropping by the Blessed Hearth..
And secondly, I would like to say that I am sorry for being among the missing...
This Summer is going by so fast and I seem to be busy doing whatever...
Just not blogging very much..
The shop is doing well with me being open only Thursday, Friday and Saturday afternoons..
It is slowly emptying and looking a bit bare..
This is a good thing.. smile..
We will be closing for good on Labour Day weekend..
I have been making a few things, though..
Foot soaks, rose powder, room sprays, gift labels and such.
Now we are into the pickling..
Last weekend we had a family reunion and it was so much fun
seeing all of my cousins...
There are only 4 of my Mom's family of 14 still with us...
Mom and Gerald stayed with us overnight and in the morning when I washed my hair Mom wanted to dry it for me...
The dear thing...
I know how it feels to just want to do something like that for your daughter even if they are grown up and in my case a bit old.. smile..
Your child is always your child, eh?
And I will remember the feel of her hands as she parted my hair to dry.. smile..
What else is new??
It is so nice to have all the nice new veggies from the garden for meals ..
I love everything about Summer almost..
Gardens, flowers, fresh veggies, rainy nights, sunny days, company galore, long drives with the windows down, fresh laundered sheets, the sound of the waves and the lace curtains blowing in the breeze...
I don't like bugs..
Detest them but one can't have everything perfect.. smile..
If Noah had of swatted that one mosquito life would have been different... grin..
A couple of our grandsons are here and I just told them that about Noah.. I asked them if it sounded dumb and they laughed and said it was pretty smart... lol..
I told them I couldn't take the credit for it that I read it somewhere.. smile..
Well, my dears this is all for tonight..
I am properly exhausted..
We did 12 quarts of garlic dill and 17 pints of sweet dill this morning..
Then I went to the shop and waited on folks plus tried to make a few more things..
And then... smile..
I came home and made Supper for our grandsons and ourselves..
What a rewarding thing that was to do..
We had a plain meal..
Mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, carrots, cucumber salad and what we call Hamburger Gravy..
I asked the boys if they liked it but they didn't know as they had not had it before..
I also made them just plain hamburger patties just in case..
But one put it all over his potatoes and carrots..
When he started eating it he says...
Oh Lord.. that is good...
And devoured 2 plates..
I like feeding my kids... grin..
Especially, with reactions like that..
Well, I really am going this time..
Take care and thanks so much for your sweet comments and so glad to meet you dear girls in the shop who follow the blog..
It is always a pleasure..
God bless ...
