Oh my gosh Call the Midwife this past Sunday..I wanted to become a midwife ..a nun..adopt Mae..
None of which is remotely possible.
Goodie One Shoe..could have never been a nun..I have had way too many detours..let's say..a Midwife?No but if I had to go back and had the talent to become a doctor and the drive..count me in.
Adopting? I'm 65..way to late.
I shed tears galore.
The daughter..the dance..
Reggie and Jane..
Jacques says this show was made for me..I have news for you all..y'all;) It is made for him too;)
I made delicious rhubarb strawberry shortbread crumble tarts..
you can find the recipe..here at Sue's wonderful professional blog.
I used cornstarch.
I made half the recipe and it made 2 4 inch tarts.♥
Also we had the boys Friday so I made duffins aka Dirt Bombs....the original recipe is from Sol at Memories In The Baking..
I found the recipe a few places..it's in a book I have somewhere too:)But where?
I cannot find a direct link to hers..nevertheless..this is a direct link in a way..It's from Lori..we were all in this together at one point.Both lovely girls..I made minis you can half the recipe.
I made a knock off..because I couldn't find Sol's ..Link to Lori,that's the right recipe.
The winner of this week's Tuesdays with Oli..
Big Fat Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies..mine spread out a bit more..but I assure you..Oli said :"Make thses again next week Nana:)From Sally's Baking Addiction~
As for GOT..I watched because Jacques wanted to all those seasons ago..maybe a season or twon..or a handful of episodes were interesting to me..
The last season was probably the worst for me and others have been as bad.
Not into fantasy and dragons and gratuitous violence on that extreme level.
I give it a total thumbs down.
Started soaking and seeding..
4'O'clocks that are dear to me♥Please pleasee please grow:)
Today..the 22nd of May..I planted yellow nasturtium seeds..gaura seeds..some tomato plants..some geraniums..and some pansies..some trailing things in my head planter..I need my ferns and a yellow wave..for the she shed flower box.
The new mailbox and bunting are up..waiting for the almond and apple trees to bloom.
The Serviceberry is full on since this aft..but the skies had clouded over..we're in for rain rain rain..rain..almost all week:(
Hmmm..see anything wrong with this picture?Below?
AS if our season was moving along swimmingly.
These will be cut and vased..so unappealing in front of a hanging pink geranium basket:(
I want to footnote this post with a thank you to Deb at Mountain Breaths..
She wrote and mentioned to me that when you clicked on my blog.. a non secure warning appeared in the toolbar above..I had seen this for a long time..but I don't do ads..don't sponsor..no pop ups..so I thought..what a joke.;)
Anyway with her mentioning it..I researched and in a matter of minutes it was all good in the world of my little blog again.
It's an easy fix if you need it..
So thanks Deb..for having taken the time to point it out and in such a discreet manner:)
And that's about it in my little country world:)
Look what's happening Sept 20th:)
