A week in pictures

My lavender is in full bloom! I love watching the bees and butterflies!

Thyme, chives, sage, rosemary, basil and of course lavender!!

One afternoon we sat outside on a breezy day, down wind from my herb patch, it was the best seat in in the yard.

So turns out, not working means I have energy to do stuff around the house. Nope, I didn't clean, don't be rash.......-I cooked, painted, and weeded!!

I planted my basil, and did a little barefoot weeding.

We made a half pepperoni (Chad's side) half artichoke, pepper goat cheese pizza! It was really good.

Chad is working on my beautiful roadside find!

I have been working in the kitchen, cooking!

Apricot/Mango sorbet

I did a little painting!

Calamity had the most important job of all, Holding down the couch!

Nacho cleaned her tail

The ice bath (minus ice) for the buttered pecan custard! It curdled, but it did not affect the outcome of the ice cream! I made this for Chad, its his, "let me take care of you-while you are taking care of cream!" Plus, I loved the challenge of making it, and Chad loves having tons-of-ice cream around the house!!

Let me tell you, I love this ice cream machine! I keep waiting for Chad to tell me, "stop making ice cream!"

cream of potato & bacon soup!

This was the wine marinade I made for the pork loin!

mmm-wine & potato/corn stew! I used a red wine but after hours of cooking it, it turned sweet, It was goood!

well someone needed to hold down the floor!!
