Our Oli 11.. painted with me last week..such a highlight..I once had a friend I painted with..she moved..
I HAVE a friend who paints..she moved..
So having Oli was a gift.
Like 3 hrs..together on the deck painting away..
He painted a Paris People♥
I hope we do it again.
My heart was bursting lol.
A few days later he was at Costco w/ his mom getting holiday/vacay food and asked if he could buy Nana flowers w/ his own money.
Those gorgeous white chrysanthemums.
Be still my heart.
Every day..weather permitting I kind of hard garden..some days less hard than others..
Friday..the butterfly came.♥
And I watched and maybe took 40 pics.
And more will come..
Next yr..MORE Verbena Bonariensis..NO Cleome..
I re~arranged a front bed and took out all the Miss and Mr Finickys.
And plopped hostas in there.
Time will tell.
I don't do much w/ my hair anymore..no streaks..nothing..but after 1 yr plus I needed a trim.
I love my hairdresser..he's all of ours..Justin.. and he eats out and lives la belle vie..
To be truthful he fought his way back for more than 1 yr after a terrible injury.
Anyway he loves eating out..good food and takes pics..thus the shrimp dish.
I finagled my way around what he told me..
Gazpacho is a gastronomical delight but until I have 2 lbs of tomatoes to make soup..
I make Sarah and Monnie's.. Just spice up our Canadian tomato juice.. lol..We have spicy Clamato..but not their tomato juice.
Easy peasy we both love it.
Tilly my friend on IG and fellow Québécoise sent me that Chicken/Mushroom/Crepe recipe..I mean once in a while a creamyish dish is ok right?:)
Now for the pickles..Please do not contact me saying ....
OHMY ITS NOT A CORRECT CANNING RECIPE
She suffered enough slack lol for sharing her tried and true recipe.
So be it.I got it on Gardenweb from Sharon 20 yrs ago and have made it ever since.
And we're all fine.
I see some have amended it..the recipe almost does not look the same.
I did add more vinegar.
Chase's Dill Pickles.
I have 9 beautiful jars waiting for us.. 6-8 weeks.
Looking good dear gardens of mine.
