I woke up to.... a nightmare about having egg customers lined at the door and the only eggs we had were all cracked (gasp!!!)
I picked....a bouquet for the table. Slightly more variety now that we are into June, but I still exhausted my flower capabilities for a few days with just a teeny amount of flowers. Oh, to have a Tudor garden full-to cut to my hearts content without ever seeing a difference!
I am remembering....the strawberry milkshakes we had with supper last night and looking forward to the strawberry spinach salad to go with supper tonight.
I comforted....this girl. Who, despite the fact that she has successfully ascended and descended the stairs thousands of times, decided to fall from the very top to the very bottom of the staircase (14 steep stairs), bouncing off of every hardwood step. TWICE she plummeted~ IN ONE MORNING.
I noticed....that our garden is being eaten alive by bugs. No plants are immune except the tomatoes. I might go rogue and get some sort of insecticide. I know, I know. We shall see.
My pen is... cruising along my full-page To-Do List pretty well. I even zip-tied the tomatoes, Mattie!
I have to go to..... the library. AND to clean the church. AND to CVS (great diaper deaL!).
I ache...in my hamstrings from picking strawberries. Yes-that was three days ago. Shut up. :-)
I am thankful that....we are finishing up school this week!
I made...rice krispy treats and promptly ate half of them. (I wish I were kidding.) This is why I cut them into squares and put them onto a platter instead of keeping them in the pan. Mental note: if you crave something for weeks~you WILL go overboard when you finally get them.
I am happy to....have the last of the strawberries dealt with-until Saturday (pie making day). I only made one batch of Strawberry Jam as I found eight jars of freezer jam left from last year. That oughta do us. So I made a batch of sorbet (oh.my.goodness is this stuff amazing) substituting peach nectar for the orange/pineapple juice. I'll keep it in the freezer until unexpected guests arrive. Or I get a hunkering...whichever comes first. ;-) All the rest of the berries I have frozen.
To freeze strawberries: Wash and hull. Place on a cookie sheet in a single layer and flash freeze. Then put in a freezer bag/container and label. Flash freezing ensures the strawberries won't lump and squish together into one massive frozen strawberry glob. In case you didn't already know...
I am anticipating...Mattie coming home! Soon and very soon!
