This morning as I was out watering my pots I couldn’t help but notice the slight feel of Fall in the air.
Before we know it the leaves will be changing to golden yellows, oranges, and reds. Oh what a glorious sight.
I hope that you have taken the time to enjoy a SWEET slice of summer.
You know me, I love any excuse to pretend I’m a school girl and play with my chalkboard.
I remember as a child anticipating summer vacation. No sweeter time to be had. It meant, slumber parties in the back yard, swimming in the canal, (don’t tell my kids) camping, and family vacation.
Nothing says ‘S.U.M.M.E.R.” more than a sweet slice of watermelon. I have to tell you, my hubby bought this watermelon and it was so sweet and juicy. Well done!
My cute watermelon bowl was a $5 thrift find.
It may be HOT, HOT, HOT; but watermelon is COOL, COOL, COOL.
I’ve pulled out my watermelon décor to bring a bit of that cool indoors.
This is the one time of year that I actually enjoy a few ants in the house.
Just to be safe I keep a few under glass.
Look at these cute shakers that my sister, Julie just sent me in the mail.
I made this stitchery years ago.
Did you ever have a seed spitting contest? Now we’re all fancy smancy and buy those seedless watermelons.
My sister, Jeanne brought these mini watermelon cookies to my home for Stitching Group.
They are a fun and easy cake mix cookie that would be great for a cooking day with the kids or grandies.
1 box Strawberry Cake mix. Add: 2 eggs and 1/2 C. oil. Mix Well. Stir in 1/2 pkg. mini chocolate chips.
Form into small balls. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes. When cool frost with vanilla frosting. Put other cookie on top. Push frosting to the edge then roll in green sugar.
And don’t forget to take time to enjoy summer!
