Hello and Welcome!
I’m still savoring the sun-kissed days of summer on the lake. Today the windows and screen doors are open to let the soft breeze reach me as I type. The soft, calming sound of wind chimes soothes me. And then add no rain or humidity! It’s marvelous!
Thinking of those who have had a wet and soggy summer or a very hot and dry summer. Prayers for you all!
When I must run to the store, I shield my eyes and walk straight past all the school supplies!
I’m still cutting flowers from my garden and making arrangements. There’s nothing sweeter than having your own flowers on your table. I decided to make this bouquet in a teapot after seeing Eliza’s Teapot Arrangement .

July treated Sweet Man and me well. From family gatherings to the 4th of July fun, we are grateful for our blessings. And I finally found “My Dress” for the wedding! That was an accomplishment! So July was very good!
Along with all the July fun and accomplishments, we also spruced up our sunroom. We added a lovely Dental Cabinet along with the new Coffee Table made by Sweet Man. He even painted the wicker chairs as they are not white anymore. He’s pretty darn fabulous! Now I am on the hunt for a new area rug for the room.

Welcome In August
So now that August is here, I remind myself to be positive! I look forward to fresh sweet corn from the roadside farm stands.
We will eat it on the cob but we will also indulge in a Corn Chowder for sure! Summer squash will bring Squash Fritters . Oh, and let’s not forget about the Peaches that will ripen from nearby orchards! Delicious peachy delights will be coming our way such as this Peach Tart!
Along with all the August deliciousness, let’s not “overlook” other kinds of delights. Sunflower Season will be arriving quite soon! I look forward to all those happy flowers across country fields and backyard gardens reaching for the sky.
August, I promise to welcome you with open arms. I’ll make sure to not “overlook” the simple pleasures that will arrive with the Lazy Days of August.
Happy August Friends!
We had a wonderful week!
As I always try to convey… we certainly appreciate all of you. Thank you for joining us for another Tuesday Tidbits.
We wish all of you a wonderful week ahead. Enjoy what this upcoming week brings to you. And whatever you have planned… make every day count and be thankful for your Blessings.
