It’s picnic season and I love these picnic plates. They’re durable melamine.
I have my mother’s old picnic basket from the 1940s that I can remember our family using when I was a child. It still has the colorful Jerywil plastic picnic plates and cups inside it. The hubby and I used it on romantic picnics when we were dating. This picnic basket has served its purpose well!!
I don’t make tacos much, but the other night, I retrieved this taco tray from the top shelf of my pantry and I made tacos. I can’t remember where I bought this tray but I like it. It seems like I ordered it out of Miles Kimball or Harriet Carter or maybe a Lillian Vernon catalog.
After the kidney stone episode this past winter, I’ll do just about anything to NOT go through that horror again. A urologist told me that there really is something to drinking cranberry juice and it’s good for the kidneys. He said it does help to prevent urinary tract infections and it also helps clear the kidneys of excessive Calcium Oxalates which is one of the main contributors to kidney stones. That’s all I needed to hear. I drink it almost every day now. It’s grown on me.
Backyard Summer Blooms
Our Hydrangeas are a little puny this year and slow to bloom. Right now, they’re gasping and shriveled up from the heat (it’s 94 degrees with a 100 degree heat index). They have to have a good rain every few days to perk up. I love the Rose of Sharon (at least that’s what I think it is). Hubby doesn’t care for it and has talked about cutting it down (don’t ask me why). Part of our Clematis (that was creeping up our flag pole) died out last year. So it’s considerably smaller this year and I noticed today that the Japanese beetles are feasting all over it so I’m guessing that’s what probably killed part of it.
Ed Sheeran- Divide CD
I love, love, love this CD! SO many great songs! I think I’ve played Perfect a trillion times and Supermarket Flowers too. I’m afraid poor hubby is tiring of dear sweet Ed!
