So it’s here


20th Anniversary Celebrations
(I think they’re celebrating)

It started on Wednesday and for some reason I have not seen the participants yet.

I am not sure what’s going on there, maybe they didn’t appreciate the decorations this year?

You remember I had this heap of after dinner mints.

I made nice piles of them on the pillows


and the rest I stuffed into their coffeemakers, hehehe

See, I even stuffed the filter compartment.

What?  No way – I am not going down there to find out what they thought about that.

If you want to know, you go and ask

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
