Summer is going fine and busy! I continue to work on my crochet projects whenever I can. I still reading The Lost Flower Children. Making easy recipes for Summer. Got some easy reading books for E. to use in the near future.

Red potato salad that someone had in facebook. It's made for tonight but I tasted it and tastes great.
Lemon Lima beans recipe.  I added extra lemon juice.

 Cotton wood tree has been letting it's wool fly around and it's annoying because it attaches itself to every flower or vegetable plants in the garden.
 I gathered 5 different types of grasses here and made a bouquet.

 These Hostas were planted here by the person who used to live here...they are blooming well.
 African daises. A friend gave a small plant and now it's big and I will need to check and see when to dived them since they spread.

Lazagna and this time made with some chard between layers instead of spinach like I usually do.

Mid July

Hi there, Hard to believe it's the middle of July but here we are. In my last trip to town I could see that the stores already have the school supplies out. The kids are getting ready to go back to school for a new school year.
 “Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute,” (Psalm 82:3)
Our lillies are starting to bloom.
 Answer: My granddaughter and for second question the answer is: Talkative! At least that is what I think. How would answer these questions?

 We had a rain storm last night so today we need to pick the branches and sticks that falls from the trees. It's so nice to see all the green now and free of snow!
The white things in the law is a cottony seed that falls from the Cotton Wood tree. That isn't a great quantity of seeds but we've had a lot before like this photo.


 The flowers in front have about one thousand of these cute insects.
The hummus turned out pretty creamy.
Potato salad

 I didn't kill some of the daises growing among my flowers because I think they are cute. I also have some huge African daisies that a friend gave a plant two years ago.
 Apple sour cream pie. This recipe is from Alicia. Click here.

 Our lovely hydrangeas are blooming nicely, we have three blooms and new one to come.
 Our sweet visitors to the bird feeder.

 We are getting some Chard and beet greens. I love how crispy and delicious they are.

 “Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, and please the widow’s cause,” (Isaiah 1:17).
Wishing a great weekend to everyone!

July 2019

We traveled under heavy rain from Iowa here. I don't really enjoy driving under those circumstances but one has to do it sometimes. It was a nice trip otherwise. Hope you had a fun 4th of July!  The children came over to offer me a kitten! They had twelve of them. I declined because we have two cats and that's all we can have for now.

4th of July in Iowa.

There is a big lake to right.
 4 th of July

On the way from where my mom in law lives and my sister in law.
My Zucchini plant
Our lillies are open now
I planted this a corner and it's not doing well. Placing grass clipping around it to keep weeds off.

My potted plants looks dry...I left my son in charge of watering plants...hummm.

Millie loves to plant these for the butterflies.

This is my mom in law's tree.
We have been watching The Handmaid's Tale. We highly recommend it. I am sort of sensitive so some scenes I had to remove myself from the room but the story makes us very scary because we are little by little building a society that will came to that. I fear for the future of this place. Sorry for photo with subtitles, husband is hearing impaired and needs subtitles. The series is based on the book of the same name by Margaret Atwood.   The words here are about a spicy tea to help the lady to accelerate birth.

My sister in law who is a teacher retired this year. These are a few of the books I bought from her. I got a lot more than what you see here. She has a big library at home but she needs to get ready of a few books. She bought lots of books to use with her students.
Got these are a library sale

May the Lord bless you always. Enjoy your Summer!!  Thanks for sharing about your plans!!
