I have a challenging assignment at work this summer, so I have been trying to say a morning prayer. This morning I was letting our dog out and I noticed some simple pretty things...Chia gourmet herbs, believe it or not.
Dill has such a lacy look...
I don't mind the birds sharing our handful of raspberries.
Now I just need some tomatoes and fresh mozarella. I hope you are enjoying the morning light where you are.
After 3 years of "planning to" work on the Country Girls peg doll kit I ordered from Alicia before the twins were born...
It's finally complete...and...I could easily become addicted to making these dolls. I want to do a 1930s group...and a Swedish group...and...and... I will teach my girl group at school to make them. Great activity. Very therapeutic.
I've been on vacation so I have been baking...a lot...and I wanted to share a busy mama tip with you. I never have a long stretch of time to measure and mix and bake, so, I measure dry ingredients ahead of time and label the bag(s). Then, all I need to do is mix and bake. Saves time and late nights waiting for things to finish baking. You're welcome.
The twins and I had a chance to visit a friend who has horses and sheep and tons of room to run. The sheep scared Rory so she immediately ran to the side of her 39" twin for protection. He says that if Rory takes ballet lessons he will have to go too, "to protect her". I love that.
I hope you are enjoying some time off too.
Thanks for visiting Hollyhocks. I think of you often. Just need more hours in the day.
