See how lovely the rain looked? It's actually been a bit dry the last few weeks and it felt nice to have a gentle soaker.
I made shrimp orzo..a recipe I found some time back and we really like.
Elderberry pie anyone? It's one of Jack's favs and no I didn't make it. I'm not much of a pie maker. Ellen who works in Jack's office made it. I thought I should snap a pic quick since it was going fast! Thanks Ellen, it's delish!
I'll confess to loving my new screen door Jack put in. It's not crooked, just my photography! So what am I confessing about? Well, I guess I should tell you that I'm a stalker. NO, I don't stalk people or do weird things like that. I guess you could say I stalk real estate. I love to look on Zillow or Realtor.com at properties here and there and sometimes anywhere! Am I looking to move us? Not really although you never know if that perfect house on a lake would pop up and tempt me! I like to know how the market is going and also the prices. I've learned a few things along the way. If you're going to sell your home and post it for folks to see here's some tips. 1. Clean the house. Don't leave the dishes in the sink, a thousand shoes by the door, laundry on the floor, beds unmade. 2. Close the toilet lid...just sayin..and while we're at it..put away the plunger, the toilet bowl brush, and any other personal items you don't want the public to see. 3. When you make the bed, really make it neatly with the bedspread, duvet, comforter, whatever, straightened. 4. Get rid of the dead animal heads on the wall. Now guys may like that but a whole room of Bambi and antlers isn't appealing. 5. Creepy basements don't photograph well. 6. Hide the real animals in your life. Get kitty off the counter and fido off the couch...atleast for the pics. 7. Too much religious things hanging on the walls, doors, windows...like tons of crucifixes or something might make some people think you're trying to purge the house of evil spirits. Not that I would ever think that. 👻 So that's my real confession for today. Yep, it's a slow blogging time! Ha! Enjoy the rest of this week!
