So, the thing lately is favorite things. Three of my favorite blog writers did it (Jen, Mrs. G and blackbird) and when three cool people do it, I have to imitate.
I'll start with the Pillsbury Cookbook which gives me clear and successful advice on what to do with an abundance of pears (or tomatoes, strawberries, beans, peppers or raspberries for that matter). I know lots of you folks swear by Betty Crocker or The Joy of Cooking, but that Pillsbury Cookbook never steered me wrong.
New craft project: I've been making chalkboards out of old cupboard doors.
Oh, those Cazalets! Love them.
This stuff. I bought it at a doctor's office and it is the BEST sunscreen in the whole world. I'm outside a LOT and one morning application gets me through a day of swimming, sweating and sunning. I wear it half the year, it gives a light coverage and this bottle lasts me two years.
My favorite place to read a book:
Picking fruit in flip flops is taking your life into your hands. All those wasps and bees drunk on fermenting fruit are dangerous. My boots keep my toes from getting stung AND keep any rogue stingers from getting up my legs, too.
I'm back to writing now that the kids are back in school. My wonderful writing group gave me great advice and this project is shaping up.
The Bumble Book Club. I have no picture to post, but we met last night to bid our founder farewell. She's moving to San Antonio, Texas. We'll carry on, but it won't be the same without her. The Bumbles are my monthly joy.
Spill it, reader, your favorites. If you haven't yet, that is.
