The biggest thing I've done all week was to pull together a new look on my plate rack as seen at this link "Later Summer on the Plate Rack"
Seems like lately I haven't been as inspired to do tablescapes but using my dishes to create new looks on the plate rack makes me happy!
As you know if you follow me I am a bit of garden enthusiast and have a 2nd blog that I focus on my gardens with. The hydrangeas are in bloom and that brings me great joy!
Stop on by "here" and visit me.
Last Saturday I made a batch of potato salad. I make it just like my mom did (sticking with the basics- potatoes, eggs, onion, celery, Miracle Whip with a touch of mustard) and I love having it ready to pull out when we grill so dinner is easy to put together. It served the two of us for 4 days.
I cheated a bit in that I bought a pie at Grand Traverse Pie Co. This was called Raspberry Lemon Silk and it was/is delightful! I cut it into sections and froze up the extra.
A sad note and ending to this week for me….
I have a prayer request for my friend Linda and her son Brent.
Yesterday Linda's son Brent was crossing through an intersection in Boston and was struck by a car. He was thrown into the air and left with multiple injuries. He has suffered a very traumatic brain injury which is the biggest battle the doctors are concerned with as well as many broken bones and internal injuries. Linda is flying out to Boston today with her sister by her side. I can't even begin to imagine the emotions going through her right now. Earlier this year Linda's husband died of a short illness with cancer and two weeks later Brent contracted something that affected his lungs, heart and kidneys that he nearly died from. He was in ICU for 10 days and had a long recovery afterwards. He just got back to work in June and then this happens. Linda is the one my daughter bought the patio set and grill from that I posted about last week. She and I meet every other week for lunch and have known each other since 1984.
This is also unreal.
