I wasn’t lazy…

I bet you’re all wondering what is going on here with this blog lately.  I usually post once a day – haven’t had time these past 10 days.  Funny, because summer is over and we should not be too busy.  The good news is, we are THAT busy

🙂

Also, I have spent some time on the internet making sure that my trip to WDW will be as wonderful as they always are.  I have booked the vacation and now I don’t know what to do with the boys. Is there anyone out there who would like to come and stay at the house for 8 nights in November and get those boys ready for school, cook a cow for dinner and make sure their favorite jeans are ready to wear?

Dorothy?

Cindy and Dave who stayed at the Wayfarer over Labor Day Weekend, were kind enough to invite Marc to go on a fishing charter with them.   Here are the pictures to prove that they are real fishermen/women

Rosemary and Sage

Not a recipe,
read on…

Pam Key stayed with us last weekend.  It was her second stay.  The first one was earlier this summer.  She was with Mitzie or is that Mitzy? – her small, white poodle.   We got along very well that first visit so she brought her husband this time around.

Pam left a wonderful letter for me in which she inquired about the little herb bundles that I put on the pillows when I have time.  I mentioned those herb bundles once before in passing.

They are there because I like the smell of Sage. I like Rosemary too, but I like Sage more.   Sometimes, when I have Lavender or Thyme, I’ll use that with the sage. Then it can be useful under the pillow when sleeping…ahhhhhhhhhh

🙂

Aromatherapy so to speak. I don’t like synthetic scents.

And that is all there is to it Pam.

Please note:  I would not put those little treasures on the beds of the fishermen that are here right now,  they would definitely laugh at me, heehee.  Joan, you know of whom I speak       :mrgreen:

Ummmm…a couple of months ago when I bought some fresh Lavender at the Elberta Farmer’s Market, I made a bundle like that for myself and stuffed it under my pillow.  It was wonderful.
The next morning I had forgotten all about the Lavender, when all I could see were these tiny little “droppings” in my bed, which made me freak out completely.
Of course in my drowsy head I thought they are mouse droppings, which would mean that there is a mouse in the house…   YIKES  –  that is one of the most paralyzing thoughts for me.  Give me spiders, give me snakes, but please keep the meeses away from this house.

It took me a couple of minutes to figure out that the lavender blossoms had all rubbed off the stalk and were all over my bed, heehee
