Today was a fun day. But it really started 2 days ago when Shari from cottage 9 and two of her boys and I went to pick blueberries in Honor off of Dead Stream Road. We had a great time and picked quite a few quarts of the most beautiful berries. They were so ripe and full, they almost jumped into our jugs.
After we came home, I baked a blueberry pie for Shari and her family 😉
Today I wanted to show Tammy, Nate and Helena, from cottage 4, a blueberry patch a lot closer to the Wayfarer than going into Honor. I went over to cottage 9 and asked Shari’s boys if they wanted to come along and they did. Yay.
I was sure that I knew how to get there via my shortcut. Ummmmmmm, I missed a turn and we drove around “sightseeing” for a while until my brain engaged and I figured out how to find the berries patch.
After we came home, I baked a blueberry pie for my family 😉
that’s the pie I baked for us
This is a great summer with some fantastic guests and more fantastic guests to come. Looking forward to quite a few old Wayfarer friends to come still
Lee is having a baby shower for a friend and she asked me to bake cookies for that afternoon – So I did 🙂
Lemon Shortbread cookies, yummmmm.
(I took this picture in the dining room)
This picture was taken in the kitchen.
Amazing how different the light is
Almost finished, they just need a finishing touch…
And here they are all finished and sparkly
Pretty, if I do say so myself and they smell so buttery and sweet.
And then I packed them all individually, but not until I had printed the little tags that Lee requested
That was fun 🙂
The first few batches of cookies have been created and the house smells so good.
I always have fancy plans to send out boxes and boxes of them. And in the end I have a difficult time to get it all together. This year I am slightly ahead. A couple of days ago I went to get the boxes and address labels from the post office. In a few days everything should be ready to get shipped.
I am as ready as ready can be 🙂
The boys are mad at me (as usual) for only letting them eat mistakes – the slightly burned edges of bar cookies and the painted cookies where the design just wasn’t up to snuff. I don’t know why I do that, not let them have actual cookies. After all, they are made to be enjoyed. But only when I say it’s ok, heehee.
Hello, my name is Iris and I am a control freak. I need to go and have a talk with a Dr. Phil.
So here are some of them. Chocolate Shortbread, Apricot Stars, filled Walnuts and Rugelach bars – YUMMMMMMMM
