Friday, Blackwork, Coffee, and Garden Update


These are two of the three tea towels I've been working on....decided to do something a little different..have one left to finish...its Cappuccino......love this Aunt Martha pattern......

I am a coffee drinker...got started while I was still living at home..both mama and dad were coffee drinkers also...Dad used creamer in his..mama was a black coffee drinker..of course, I went with my daddy and use creamer in coffee and  milk in tea....they used Folgers at home but now, I prefer Don Franciscos when I can get it...if you haven't tried Don Francisco coffee..its the bomb....you can find them on Facebook..and they do giveaways..I won a nice gift basket from them a few months ago...and yes, they have decaffeinated ...


The garden is doing well...we are getting  summer squash now..the other day, I roasted them in the oven and they were very good...easy to do..just cut up  your squash, put in a oven proof pan (I sprayed some Pam in it), drizzle with oil..and roast at 350 for about 40 minutes or so or until they are tender.....I think some garlic would be very good with this too.....
the nectarines are getting ripe too..the tree this year didn't have very many..last year we had more but there was a cold snap in February so that's probably the reason......

but the apricot is making up with tons of fruit.....just hope the birds don't get too many of them.......

ground squirrel latest count---20
