This and That


As we enter the last week of August I must say I'm tired of the heat and the dryness of this summer. I'm ready for Autumn!

Granddaughter K. came by to cut my and DH's hair ( we are so fortunate to have our own personal hair stylist in the family). She brought me a belated birthday gift. I love the Farmer's Market suitcase but haven't found the right spot for it yet. Actually she also brought me an 'orphan' tea cup , Royal Albert pattern Val d'Or. My mom had at least one cup and saucer in that pattern and I've always thought it a very lovely pattern... plain white with gold trim.


We bought a small box of peaches and have been enjoying them immensely. The last ones needed taking care of today so I made Impossible Peach Pie using my homemade Bisquik. Actually I made 2 and still had more peaches which turned into exactly one quart jar of preserves.


Have a great week. I hope it's not too hot where you live.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Yep, it's heating up again. We are going to Whidbey for a few days. then it will be September. That makes me sad. I am so much a summer girl, even with the heat and dryness. Of course, I get to be as lazy as I want to be, and that helps. A refreshing rain would certainly be nice.

  2. You're making me so hungry for peachy things, GM!
    I must find a farmers market tomorrow and buy some!

  3. Hi Granny Marigold, no heat here in Ontario. We have had to shut windows at night and pull up a blanket! I have been hearing on the news how hot and dry you are and about the fires near Kelowna.
    Peaches are lovely this year and still going strong here.
    have a good week!

  9. I love that Farmers Market Suitcase! How lucky you have someone to cut your hair. Your peach pie looks delicious. I wish we would have been able to get a few peaches to freeze. Nancy

  10. Your Peach Impossible pie looks yummy and your peach preserves are beautiful! I just finished up our peaches today with another turn of preserves. I have two peaches left...just enough to try a new muffin recipe tomorrow. :)

  11. Such nice gifts from your granddaughter. I am so ready for cooler weather, it gets so hot and humid here and I just don't tolerate it as well as I did years ago.
