We've had some lovely summer days here~
Everyone is enjoying the outdoors..the boys..all 4 have either day camp or swimming and swim team..football is on hiatus for July..
you can hear crickets..
roses and clematis are blooming their heads off..the cornfields are growing..it's awfully pretty..my town comes alive in summer..Main Road is lined with daililies..the water sparkles....being touristy..it's totally different in winter.
we went to the beach one day..the boys play non stop..nnd well~
I went to the market w/ my Ipad.. easy to take pics..I have found that if you ask if you can take a photo..the vendors can be quite gracious..I think I know who to ask..I will never forget the year I asked one woman if I could take photos..I was making photo cards for our Firemen's Fund Bazaar at Christmas..she said no..! Outright and I had told her why.
I never stop at her dried flower arrangement booth anymore and have never bought one thing there since then.
I mean c'mon..I wasn't taking a photo of a secret document,blueprints etc..
Especially w/ the internet now.
So I have fave vendors there..quite a few..
One is a local artist well known for her art,floral arranging,hat making,sign making and throw/apron confections..I have a couple of her signs and have offered them as gifts..she had the loveliest throw there this w/e.I only took a shot of the little shed she hangs some of the signs on..
A little..big..coup de coeur was that vintage 1920-1930 canister set..♥
I have my friends' that I love ..have no pink in the kitchen and really no room for another set..but look how SWEET!!
I read up when I came home..seems these sets (this one is opalescent)..were made in Germany or Czechoslovakia..in the 20's and 30's.Adorable no? In almost pristine condition..one chip..on one container.
Right..the little summer domes:)
I have shown you the silicone mold before..you just brush melted chocolate of your choice..firm up in freezer or fridge..I brush 2 coats on..fill w/ your favourite mousse recipe..and tuck a fresh washed strawberry inside as a surprise..
In a pinch you can even use Dr Oetker mousse..just make sure your mousse is firm enough.You need to have it that way so that when you unlod it stays in and put:)
PS..We are years late on this Netflix series..but we both love it to bits..
Friday Night Lights
Kyle Chandler (Bloodline),Connie Britton(Nashville),Taylor Kitsch(True Detective)..etc..form a terrific ensemble cast with all the other actors.
Love the show! And over 70 episodes I think..we don't binge watch.. so it will last a long time..finished Season 1 and it was nothing short of great.
