Oh lala..first full day of school.. Tuesday Sept 3rd..
One thing I love... is being able to greet the boys and their mom at the bus stop when they get home..(sometimes.. as we try and not overdo it..)
Oli..is the lookout..
It was a rainy~ish day..on Tuesday..
But he was as happy as a clam.:)
Boys love rain and puddles~
I love boys now.
I have always loved little girls..but oh how I do love little boys now too♥
Their sense of style...:)
Wolverine.. was Thursday Sept 5th when we took him out to lunch and he got to pick a birthday toy at Toys R Us~
He never hesitated..headed to the costumes and picked Wolverine.. He is fully dressed under that costume..:)
Greeting Max on his second full day of shool:)
The leaves are changing in the time of an inhale:(
It will be pretty and glorious and multicolor soon..
But all too fast..Monochrome.
My project this summer was unearthing all our flagstone pathways.. where the grass has grown OVER them.. we have a lot of pathway..we laid them all under F's tutelage ap 12 yrs ago~
Our other son-in -law helped us add a platform to our deck area so I had to make the stones follow to the platform..they weigh a ton..so many years ago..they never felt that heavy..so I cheated on 2 and used cement steppers I made w/ words..
A Weed Is But An Unloved Flower~
The an is hidden somewhere..
On our street some properties have left the cubside/ more wild than manicured..
I love how they keep it all naturally groomed.
Like the old days..
It's an OLD street..
So it works~
In the kitchen I made Martha's Onion Bacon Jam..
Great topping for hamburgers..you will have to bring to room temp or warm in the micro before slathering the burgers or Brie paninis with this.
Not for the calorie or fat weary.
But the Easy Minestrone from Chatelaine is.. for the calorie and fat weary..:)
I used the whole container of broth..and used chicken broth..I used a mixed medley of beans..
Keep your parmesan rinds..
I do and love the way they flavor soups..
I didn't have any small pasta tubes so used mini farfalle.
Added more basil..and some salt..taste test..my broth was organic etc.. It was soup day that particular day..
So good with bread too:)
I love making 6 indidividual breads if we are seeing family or having company..the trick to keeping an herb in a non-burnt stage..is applying the herb to the bread w/ an egg wash..and then saturating the herb w/ a coating of flour prior to baking..then you simply dust the bread off after cooking and the herb..still looks like an herb~
Last but not least I Pinned a free download I found charming..
My daughter repinned..
and had it printed for us..
Love it on our old dry sink in the kitchen~
You can find it here~
A nice dark frame would look great..I didn't have one on hand:)
Use what you have..
Which brings me to such a sweet song I discovered..
I loved it so much I went to Itunes to buy it..
It Makes you feel good.
Listen..click and listen...
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do:)
