Hope your weekend was enjoyed the way you intended it to be.
We started off early for Amish country, cooler in the back as is our usual protocol.
For as pretty as a day it was, I don't think I've ever seen it so pleasant to get around, except when the weather is cold. No traffic jams, no lines, not even alot of people milling about the small town of Berlin. We stopped for lunch, hit the antique mall, and then Walnut Creek Store. I like to buy the bulk spices, and while they have everything you can think of...I stick to the same, that's what I use.
Garlic powder, coarse black pepper, peppercorns, chilli powder, basil and cumin, and yeast. Fresh local strawberries, for strawberry shortcake, I used a wee bit of the Lemon Verbena sugar to sweeten them up a bit. It's always so nice to get away from suburbia....the problem is....we have to come back. oh bother !
No big finds or surprise items this time, but I did find this little gem. Now that I can make biscuits like nobody's business, I got an official "antique" biscuit cutter, I've been using a glass which works fine...but you know what "THEY" whoever they are say....the right tool for the right job.. So I got a little trinket.
It was warm and balmy with a nice breeze, "THEY" again....predicted 80% rain for the area, there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Later in the evening, we did get some rain, and some rumbles of thunder which continued all night long...a nice gentle rain, my little potted sweeties got a nice drink.
When we got home, my little Holy Basil plant had arrived.😊 DH had some training this morning on a vehicle, he is a driver for the VA. So when he gets home we'll have some fresh biscuits, eggs and bacon. Looks like more rain...
We have a momma Robin and her baby, they visit every day. I love to watch them, they are here now, baby stays close to momma, and learns how to find food. The first few days, the little still had it's downy spotted feathers, momma would leave her for a while, and the babe would just stand there and call out for her. Today, they shared a nice meal, and momma flew off, the little one just continued to find food and move about. God put the natural instinct of caring for young in all creatures..
