I try to avoid too much ice cream because it gives me a stomach ache, but I know there isn't anything like it in the way of an August dessert. When I am with Kelli's girls for five days, we might have to venture out for nightly ice cream.
Today we had a meeting with Bill's colleagues. The band of travelers who live locally all met at our gracious friend's downtown loft. I revel in their tales, the sharing of their hearts for people and their grasp of God's word. I'm delighted that I am invited to join them. The morning on the squishy sofa in T's living room was WONDERFUL!
She is a superb house-maker. All of the homes she's lived in have her special stamp. Don't you love this pot rack loaded with cozy copper?
Her view of the city is astounding. See?
Her old pet! SUCH a chatterbox!
Just about the cutest tea kettle I've seen!
Matching serving tray - LOVE!
Isn't this a perfect table for very important people? That's how she views all of the people in her life. She cherishes them. She constantly shares everything she has. Everything is so beautiful at her house.
How are you feeling about fall? Are you looking forward to it or are you savoring the last weeks of summer? Have you been eating melons, zucchinis, fresh beans, and tomatoes? I think rabbits are eating my cucumbers. Boo.
I mean to spend a few mornings wearing my gardening gloves, pulling out handfuls of wild and rangy weeds and other pushy plants. Did you know that Tasha Tudor did NOT quit gardening when this time of year rolled around? She pulled and planted, arranged and straightened. Our garden here is teeny weeny in comparison, but I hope I have the verve to stay out there and tidy it all up.
I'm thinking about buying a new planner at the Back to School sales. The one I used last year was impractical, too big and vague. I think I need a printed month's calendar at the start of every month and the days of the week spread across two pages. What kind of a planner do you like to use?
All this organized thinking has caused me to crave a cup of tea. That's what I'll do next and then I'll make a vinaigrette for our cabbage salad.
Thank you for dropping by!
