You've probably surmised, from the photos,
that I turned 51 the other day.
I took it like a champ and didn't shed a tear.
I blushed with each greeting that appeared on
Blushing is a youthful trait, right?
You might also have noticed that my Plumbago
plant bloomed in the house.
It isn't a plant I've hardly seen before, so I was
hoping to keep it going indoors until warm temps
I wasn't so lucky with the lavender.
I'm never lucky with lavender.
I've got jonquils and chrysanthemums
that need to get out into the dirt...
I'm waiting for that particular mood
to happen in which I put on shoes and
pick up a shovel.
March came in like a...
a squirrel maybe?
And has boinged around like a kangaroo...
Kentucky leaves one with lots of guesswork
in the weather category.
Things turn on a dime as well.
You might find your family taking
cover in the basement and/or
traipsing around the yard in their
swim trunks on the same day.
It pays to be flexible.
Iced tea in one hand, flashlight and
candles in the other.
Hubby has played indoor golf of late...
putter at the ready in case weather
permits an outing.
Boy and Maya are still working it out.
See her sticking out her tongue behind
Is that not just like a woman?
I had to remind that girl she was also
off the street and needs to offer
some grace to the newcomer.
Lessons in nature all over the place.
Lemon cake, anyone?
I stirred lemon juice into sweet condensed milk...
poked holes into a yellow box mix cake...
slathered that on the cake, let it sit in fridge
overnight...then made icing from powdered
sugar, lemon juice, butter and milk...
and spread that over the cake...then
added lemon zest on top.
It was a hit and very delicious!
Do you sometimes make up things as you go?
