We just got the CD from the photographer with all the wedding photos so editing through those will be a task. There are some wonderful ones. It was pretty overwhelming looking through them. The Chosen One's moma passed away unexpectedly 3 weeks after the wedding so seeing photos of her was both hard and a gift. She had such a good time and had all of her brood together except one grandchild. I think we will all treasure that we were given that time with her. I had planned to do a few wedding posts in early July but losing her put that aside. I'll do them soon :)
I am helping coordinate a Fall Bazaar at out church in November. I am really excited, things like this bring so many people in the doors and we have some truly gifted artists and crafters in our midst. It will be nice to showcase those God given gifts. I do have to figure out what I want to sell, I'm a bit all over the place so need to narrow it down and start building inventory. Are you selling any of your creations?
How are you liking your Southern "tea". Sweet tea and lemonade are as essential to our lives as hot tea is to the Brits. I was grown before I learned that pimento cheese was a Southern thing. I have loved it all my life. A toasted (in the oven) pimento cheese sandwich and tomato soup were the standard Sunday supper growing up. It was the one night we got to eat in front of the TV so we could watch Wild Kingdom and The Wonderful World of Disney.
Pickled okra is evidently another Southern thing. Now many, many people, Southerners included will make a gagging sound if you mention okra. Boiled it has a thick...ummmm....snotty thing going on that is quite disgusting but there are ways around it. It is yummy fried or roasted and if you are into pickled things it is delish.
The sand dollar cookies were discovered on pinterest last winter and I made them for the PreWedding Night Celebration. I'm having lunch with a friend that couldn't make the wedding because of work so I thought I'd make some for you and her.
It seems like our resident chipmunk has ventured over to say hi, now he is not what I consider a Southern creature.
Oh my, you do have a lot of errand running to do on this side of the world! I'm glad it made it convenient for you to stop by. Everything fell out of my "tupperware" cabinet this morning and I just stepped back and let it tumble out so that's my afternoon project. Yea, the grass needs cutting but I think I'll put that off a bit longer.
The rest of the blog week is busy so I hope you'll stop by frequently. Tomorrow (Tuesday) the blog will be 5 years old and I am having a few small giveaways. Wednesday I'll be sharing my July scavenger hunt photos as I link up with Rinda. Thursday I'll share Month in Numbers and Friday I hope to share about the Art of Wild Abandonment. Drop by next month and be sure to let me know if you are having us over for tea!
Time for Tea is a monthly meme hosted by my delightful blogging friend, Abi. Pop over to Creating Paper Dreams for some more tea and chats. We'd love to come by your place, just leave a link over at Abi's in the next week leading us to your related post.
