I am so sorry your air went outHope you are able to replace it real soon. I am really fortunate--me and my hubby that is, because we live on a military post due to my hubby being in the Army. Therefore, all of our utilities are covered. One of the few nice perks of the military. So I make sure to remember we are blessed with that!

My son would love to have you around with all those pickles! He's 2 1/2yrs old and when he sees pickles in the grocery store he screams for them:)

I can't wait to see your new book and hopefully purchase a copy. I recently got into embroidery and I am loving it so far!! I printed out your GA flower pattern the other day with the intention of stitchin' it up soon. Then I am going to do the AZ one and WI one. AZ is where we lived for 4 years and WI is where I was born and lived for 20 yrs.

Take care and I enjoy your blog lots:)


yum, pickles! I love your shelf wallpaper too, perfect!!


Pickle making is on my agenda this summer, too. My mother promised to join me for a day of it once I'm feeling up to it.

So sorry about your AC and now.they.want.to.replace.your.furnace.too. situation. May it all work out so you can be comfortable no matter the season. One thing's certain, energy costs will only go up.

Have a happy day in the pool...floating...it's a good thing.


I tried your recipe this year after making "kerosene" pickles last year. Yours were delicious. Will be using the recipe from now on. Thanks for sharing it!
