The reception was lots of fun and I danced quite a bit. Having been in high heels for several hours has left me a bit sore today though!
This morning I finished up a project that I've been working on for a while now, staining the playset in the backyard. It's been quite a job and I really glad to have finally completed it. I had hoped to be able to finish it before it got too hot outside, but going out at ten o'clock proved to be too lae for that. It was pretty hot already and by the time I had finished I was soaked in sweat. I swear that thing was growing as I was staining it! Took so long to finish it because we had to wait until it wasn't raining, wasn't going to rain, we didn't have plans for something else going on, etc. But it's done, that's the most important thing and I won't have to do it again for a while. I hope.
We had gotten some fresh blueberries in and I can only eat so many of them, so this afternoon I made a loaf of blueberry bread. Yum!
Fresh from the oven....
Here's the recipe I use-it's really good.
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cups blueberries
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1/2 cup oil
Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Add berries and nuts, mix to distribute evenly.
Add eggs and oil and mix only until ingredients are moistened.
Pour nto a well-greased and floured loaf pan.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
I wanted to share one more picture with you.
We also discovered that the bee balm that we plantd a few years ago has finally bloomed. Bright red flowers. So pretty! We have a butterfly garden in the rear of the yard, behind the playset and it is really looking good this year. Gotta give the props to the ole hubby on that, he is the gardener of the family now.
I've given it up in recent years because of the difficulty I have n bending over and getting up, but it's just as well-he does a great job.
Hope you all had a great weekend!
