“How fun!” I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week. Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:
Beauty in my week:
- More Indian food prepared by Amy.
- My stargazer lily finally bloomed after three years!!! It’s beautiful and fragrant.
- A trip to the Cleveland Museum of Art.
- Small group Bible study.
Blooming in my garden:
Pink sweet pea
Byzantium lamb’s ear
Purple bee balm
Red bee balm
Purple star phlox paniculata
I watch a lot of British crime dramas on Netflix, PBS, and Amazon. I found this little cheat sheet to explain what the various British police ranks mean. You are welcome! 🙂
Summertime often means picnics. I thought this picnic food generator was quite clever and contained some interesting ideas. Enjoy!
From my face book page last week:
Did you see these beautiful photos of motherhood? Absolutely mesmerizing! They were included in the book Family by Margaret Mead and Ken Heyman.
What we are eating next week:
- Saturday Picnic at a friend’s campground. We are taking baked beans.

Have a beautiful weekend my friend!
Thank you, Barbie!
I hope you have a beautiful weekend, too! <3
Thanks for hosting. Have a great week 😉
Thank you, Catherine! It’s always nice to see you here!
Have a great weekend!
I don’t watch a lot of BBC cop dramas, but I do read a lot of Brit books with police, so I’ll have to look at that list. By the way, do you know we get the slang ‘cop’ from the phrase, Constable On Patol?
Just shared about my parents’ 60th anniversary. Have a fun weekend!
No, I didn’t know that about “cop!” How fun! Hope the list comes in handy.
How wonderful that your parents have been married that long! Truly a blessing! Thanks for sharing!
Have a wonderful weekend!
What lovely photos! I just came across your blog and it is gorgeous! Have a fabulous weekend!
Thank you so much for your lovely compliment!
Also, thank you for joining us in the link-up! It’s nice to have you!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
I always love seeing what you share on this Friday fun. How extraordinary the pictures of motherhood are and the picnic generator is cool. Have a great weekend.
Thank you for your kind words, Ginger!
Yes, those pictures of motherhood are extraordinary! I keep going back and looking through them.
Enjoyed your garden photos, Elizabeth! That gooseneck loostrife is amazing! Have a blessed weekend!
I’m glad you enjoyed the garden photos, June! I agree with you about the gooseneck loosestrife.
Hey Sweet Elizabeth… sorry I have been a super slacker at this whole linking-up jam… The last several weeks we have been on vacation so remember to link up wasn’t at the front of my mind (entertaining a 17 month old for 2000 miles in the car was, however.)
Glad to be back– keep up the great work! Love to you.
So nice to see you! It’s my turn to be a slacker. This is my first summer blogging. My oldest daughter has been home and most of our regular routines have been thrown out the window. I don’t see things getting back to normal until around mid-August.
2000 miles with a 17 month old deserves a very big Starbucks. lol
