Just finished making a recipe of Belgian-style Yeast Waffles. They'll be the "cake" for fresh strawberry shortcake. The area strawberries are just now coming in and, this year, are wonderfully pump, juicy and sweet. Takin' the waffles to Glenn's daughter's house tonight. We'll cook out first, then.....yum!

Have a look-see:

A big hug to you Laurie. Birthdays are tough. This past Sunday I observed the second anniversary of dh's death and that too was hard to believe. Happy memories really help!

Just finished delivering the Memorial Day pots to the local cemeteries.

My Grandmother always called it Decoration Day.

I think it is important to remember those who came before us and to pass those memories on to future generations.

Going to be doing my 2 hour volunteer stint at the library later. I used to have a regular time and day but lately I've been kept very busy with shelf-reading. Basically, scan each and every book down the line, making sure they are in the exact order. I swear the books hop off the shelves at night to party, then can't find their way back to their correct "home". Now I float and show up each week when it works best for me. Might be doing something special today though since the library is hosting a special speaker this evening.

Before I leave I should clean out the hummingbird and Baltimore oriold feeders - a hummer and I spooked each other yesterday so I know for sure they're coming around again. Yay!

That mist is liquid and liquid is heavier than air. Therefore it is not going to hang in the air waiting to come up and get you. It will reach its height capacity stopped by the lid and start its return trip to down.
