The Everything Girl ...

This past weekend, the weather flip flopped hour to hour ...
on our hike with Archer it was hot and very, very windy
so it was nice to walk through the  wooded paths,
lovely thin trails
single file
shaded
and highly scented
 
lots of lovely bumbles
and plenty of opportunities to make HUGE wishes :-)
cool clear streams
archer is a typical lab and is drawn to water
on Sunday
I woke to rain
heavy, heavy downpours
the kitchen was dark and dreamy
just perfect to do some early morning baking
a few trays of jam tarts
made with the leftover pastry
from an apple and pear pie.
By the time I was finished baking and dishes done
the rain had stopped
the sun was out
and
I needed to open the back door and let the cool air in :-D
The Everything Girl
is in my Etsy shop this morning.
***
A little bit of everything ... she loves and celebrates it all.
The tree, hummingbird, butterfly, snail, frog, moth, butterfly, bunny, flowers, nest ... and all that's magical in the world.
She takes time to smell the flowers.
Being as I am directionally challenged :-) I added a little wooden compass around her neck to help her find her way ♥

I don't even know where to start Deb! What a beautiful new painting. It just makes my heart sing!!!!!!!!!!
Your rainy day looked like a perfect one to me. From walking in all that beauty to baking in the kitchen...now that's how a day should go! I love to bake in the fall, I think it's because I'm not thinking about getting out in the garden all the time.. I always love to bake bread, but to bake bread with all the fresh herbs from the garden is really a treat.
You don't know what it did for me to stop by today Deb. Thank you !
sending hugs and love....

Sounds perfectly lovely and your baking is making me want to go dip my hands in the flour. Delicious.

Deb said...

dear june ~ THANK YOU so much for your beautiful message ♥
my hubby bakes all our bread ...and one of our favourites is his herb and cheddar. we make a roasted tomato soup from our garden toms & the two go together perfectly :-D I can just imagine how delish your bread with fresh garden herbs from your garden is ...yum.

Deb said...

It looks like a beautiful walk Deb. I love rain so I would love to be inside your house with that pie cooking, rubbing Archer's belly and listening to the raindrops.
Hugs,
