sunny sunday

What a wonderful day this is!
Our Most Loveliest Daughter (Rebecca) and our three Incredible Grandchildren (Grace 8 1/2, Jack 6 1/2, and Eve turning 4 1/2 on Tuesday!) are coming today for a little visit.
We couldn't be more excited...it has been a whole year since they were here in Middlebury, Vermont.
There will be lots and lots of loving going on!!

birthday men

My Two Birthday Men~~
June, 14, 2015
Even after all this time, I still find it incredible that these two have the same birthday, June 14th, Flag Day! One born in '47 and the other in '74! 
I Love these two.

I love growing chives in my kitchen garden.
The delicate purple flowers are my favorite part.  
They smell somewhat like a wildflower with hints of fragrant garlic and onions.
I love adding these purple petals to a sandwich or salad all summer long....so colorful.

looking from the inside out

It's Willie's Adoption Day!
Eleven matchless, historic, passionate, and dynamic years with 
this unyielding, powerful, uninhibited, and dashingly handsome boy.
For eleven years we say everyday--
Willie is SO much more than a cat!
SO much more.

lilac water

I love making flower waters.
It is so easy and looks lovely in the refrigerator.
All I do is take a handful of blooms, add them to filtered water in a glass pitcher, and allow them to steep overnight.
The next day strain the blossoms.  I use a big slotted spoon.
The water has a delicate flowery subtle taste.
Now that the lilacs are just about over for the season I am looking forward to making rose water.
*If you might want to try this just be certain to use petals that have not been chemically sprayed.
