Our weekends have been very full. This past one was no different.
Friday: errands, library stop, a few tag sales. We also managed to snag our *free* donuts ...*free* donuts which ended up costing me more $ than I thought since I had to buy 5 drinks first ...and spend a short jaunt at a local park while enjoying the ABSOLUTELY gorgeous weather.
Saturday: more errands, graduation party to attend, swim party for some of our family (lucky!), errand running, pulling gigantic weeds from various parts of the yard. My daughter and I stopped at another tag sale where we found 8 cloth napkins and the camera above. I read that this was considered an ugly camera and only faithful Kodak users had purchased it. I don't know. It is clunky but cool looking. And...it will fit nicely with my old camera collection. Plus, it came with a leather case, which just adds to its appeal. And did you know that some camera cases had to first be unscrewed from their cameras before the film could be loaded/unloaded? Hey, learn something new everyday!
Sunday: enjoyed church, a leisurely lunch with a small fire thrown in for good measure, (small amount of oil dripped onto a hot burner - a small flame - a moment of panic - a trying to remember to use salt or flour? - moment passed as flame fizzled - all was well) and Frozen Peach Pie.
My daughter made Frozen Peach Pie complete with graham cracker crust. It was yummy!
The weekend before, I had purchased a whole bunch of beautiful looking peaches from Costco. They were just slightly soft to the touch, with velvety skin and a sweet aroma. I started imagining sweet peach juice dribbling from my mouth...Well, that was a short-lived dream. My husband tried one. Nope, not ripe enough. Hmmm...unusual. They looked and felt just perfect. Unfortunately, they never ripened the way I had imagined. They never pulled away from the pit nor were they juicy or sweet. Must have been picked before their prime. So they were turned into dessert.
