Hope you are all having a good Monday...
Such a busy time of year, eh?
We are finally heading to the cottage for a few days to get it ready for us for the next few months..
We have had phone calls from St. Martins wondering where we are..smile..
Folks have even mentioned that they had stopped by but could tell we had not arrived yet..
(the grass is probably sky high and the place probably looks pretty sad) ...
This year as you know we have been able to visit the farm and stay several times and with the late Spring we are very slow in getting there..
But all in good time.. smile..
Today I packed and got ready to go and spent over an hour talking to the phone company trying to get our phone and internet hooked up..
Terry wanted to finish a garden job at the church and a few other things so I was left in charge of packing ..
Fresh bedding, food, summer clothes and so many little things that one needs..
Extra phones, books, plants for inside and out plus other stuff..
Sometimes I wonder if it is worth it when we are in transition but come the first hot day and as I feel the cool breezes off the Bay then I know that it is.. grin..
We had our last farm stay so this will be my last post on the old place I expect till Fall...
Here are a few pics from our stay..
Photos from a little evening drive..
We had my Mom and Step-Father over for supper one night so I made a bit of bread..
Marinated Chicken Breasts, Potato Salad and Caesar Salad...
I can only eat half a piece of chicken..
I am not a meat eater...
This is a photo taken from our kitchen window early one morning..
The fog lifted in an hour or so..
Such a peaceful place and I look forward to spending time there again when we come home in the Fall..
The lilacs smelled heavenly..
They are such a beautiful flower and look as lovely on this old farmhouse table as they do in an elegant parlour..
Well, dear hearts this is a very busy week for us..
We attended a wonderful Graduation Baccalaureate Service last night with our grandson..
We are going to the cottage but need to be back by Thursday evening for his graduation and the whole family gathers at Trevor's for a party on the weekend...
I will get back to you all soon..
But in the meantime take care..
Thanks so much for your sweet visit and I love your comments..
I am including my Banana Bread recipe as requested last post..
I hope you enjoy..
3 ripe bananas... The riper the better..
1 3/4 cups of flour.. I like whole wheat best..
1 1/2 cups of sugar.. I use half sugar and half Splenda
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1/4 cup of milk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. of cinnamon
1/3 cup of chopped walnuts and / or raisins ..
Mix wet ingredients and add whisked dry ingredients..
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Pour into greased and parchment lined pans..
This will make 2 regular loaves or 3 smaller ones..
Bake for at least an hour and probably another 20 minutes..
God bless my friends..
