Lots of heaven..compared to winter..bounty..
Max and Oli came for a playdate..I follow m.k.pickle54 on Ig and she was making ice cream.
I am not proud to say I have not used my lovely Cuisinart Ice Cream machine in years.
I took it out and made a basic vanilla ice cream..w/ vanilla bean paste added..
It was so good!
Made them little sundaes and they were so appreciative~
I also made oatcakes and ohmygosh my kind of munchie..I love oatmeal bars..oatmeal cookies but had never made oatcakes..for some reason I had to fiddle with it..I halved it but it shouldn't have changed anything..so you may have to fiddle..a bit..I can tell now w/ baking and cookies..if it will work or not..I had to add some oatmeal and flour.
I think I had better let you find your own..mine originated from Cape Breton .I LOVE them.
When we had the boys..2 of them over..it was hot and sunny out and seeing them..I had a flashback of my girls..
Probably because they were sitting on a chair beside me..
I had taken a few ..like the one above..different angles..I think they were 5 and 3 here..♥
I asked the boys if they would try and get their pic taken like their mom had..and here you have the difference between boys and girls..I got my foldable beach hats.Which Oli liked to wear this way or as a dog collar.
These boys..make me smile.:) Great sports to let me actually take pics of them with hats♥
Went to my market Saturday..I wanted to give 2 vintage hats..not the ones above lol.. to a vendor who had given me this..the week before..I grew up learning how to write in these..what memories it brought back!
There were designated Catholic schools back then..and we could not eat meat on Fridays..we had to fast 3 hrs before communion..and had to go to church every Sunday.I went with my mom..
We had Catechism..to learn by heart..and we learned cursive writing from the get go..
The exercise book to the left..the one he gave me..and my primary school report cards on the rght.I am so thrilled to have these.
At the back of the écriture practice books ..there were math tables.
This was grade 5.I loved that teacher.I was at a different school board then.
My mom was so happy w/ my notes..90's.It was important to her.
She was brilliant and cutivated.
Me..not so much but I loved primary school.I wanted to play school after school..lol.
I remember scents from back then.I remember loving my teachers..even my ugly pleated tunic.You dont pit top to bottom box pleats w/ a belt on a chubby girl.My English catholic friends had V~ neck a line tunics.And gold blouses.. mine were white.
How neat to have found one of the little books and that the vendor said: "Take one or two".
And while there..my favoritest artist was there w/ her hats..and quilts and paintings and signs..You know..
those signs I love so much..
Above..an IPad photo..I just cannot take a good pic w/ an Ipad:)
THis is part of her set up there..she also has tables and such w/ her other things..
One of her signs in my garden.
Have a lovely weekend and week..as always~
As I finish typing this..the skies are falling..a long lavish rain..♥
