WELCOME!!!

WELCOME!!!

Thursday, May 28


This is much what it looked like here all morning and until 2:30 this afternoon. Yeap, pouring rain. We did need it though and it will definitely give the vegetable garden a kick start. The lettuce is doing very well, but the tomatoes needed a good drink. I'm sure that they will begin to grow more now since I had just put fertilizer on them a couple of days ago.

Not much doing around here these days to post about. Just the usual. I picked the boys up from school today and went to their house and made banana milkshakes for them. That was a treat because they don't often get milkshakes. Brandon asked me if I knew how to make a smoothie and I told him I did. He said maybe next time they could have those. That would be a great treat on a hot day. Frozen blueberries make a great smoothie, as do other fruits and the benefit of a smoothie is that you get the real fruit instead of concentrate.

So the next time the boys need a cool drink on a hot day, I'll be busy making smoothies. They're healthier than milkshakes and very refreshing.

  2. I almost got a smoothie today for lunch, but decided not today - they're not cheap when you buy them at a food place.

    We had a lovely day that turned to rainy around 3:00 - then the sun came back out. Really crazy day. We always need the rain.

  3. It's been a rainy/stormy week so far. It was cloudy with a peek of sun now and then today, but only a few sprinkles.

    I love smoothies! And here I sit with nothing to make them from. I'll have to try to remember to get some fruit and juices when I go back to the grocery store! I like yogurt in my smoothies too.

    Have a wonderful Friday and weekend, Mary. :o)

    Love and hugs,

    Diane

  4. Mary, you sound like my mum, she's always making my 3 milkshakes, it's a good thing, very good for the bones anyway and lots of calcium. I like to add things like kiwifruit, mandarins, feijoas.

  5. There is so much variety when it comes to Smoothies. I really enjoy Pina Colada (Pineapple and Coconut). I wonder what a feijoa is. I'm going to have to go and look that one up.

  7. Love the animation of the rainfall. And you're living right?!!!...Me, I'd forget all about the plant food and then it would rain ....and THEN I'd add the fertilizer to the soil. All too late of course. LOL

  8. I think in the past month we've had more than our fair share of rain and frankly, I was really liking the nice temps and sunshine we finally got over the past weekend -well, for the most part it was that way although even then, we had a few little shower interruptions. This week though -yesterday seemed nice enough and I finally got out and planted a few veggies in the little block garden space my SIL fixed up for me only to have it pour down rain along with a lightning and thunder show too late last night. Probably a method contrived to see if the seeds I'd just sown would wash away, out of sight and soil or survive against all the odds with me and my black thumb as the gardener.

  11. Yeah, but milkshakes are so good.. especiall with whipped cream and a cherry on top... Smoothies are cooling and I'm sure more healthful...but I love my chocolate milk shakes..;)

  12. Love the rain photo! We've had more rain than usual this spring-but after the drought of last year I too am thankful for it.
