THIS AND THAT AND TBT


Remember all those lemons I brought home from our trip?  Well they were ripening faster than I could use them, so the solution was juice them.

The best way I know to save the juice for future use is freeze them in cubes, bag them and use as needed.


We were looking for something in the storage room on the balcony and I found the Willow Tree girls I had been missing since we moved.  This one I keep where it can be seen as it's such a reminder of sitting with a friend and sharing our hearts.


Since my word for 2015 is study, I just love my little girl engrossed in a book.  I have several more, but I'll share them on another day.


For Throw Back Thursday, I picked one of my favorites.  This was taken when I was probably 6.  My sister Donna 12, and my Mom and Dad.  Don't you just love my dad's three piece suit. and my mom's hair parted down the middle.  No "teasing" hair back them, and then that little pose I'm doing.  It's obvious this is a 1940's picture.

  4. I probably wouldn't have thought to turn those lemons into juice, but then again Ive never had more than a few at a time.
    Love your Willow Tree Girls. That's the kind of thing I wanted to do with my clay a few years back.
    Hope your day is sunny and bright.
