It's been lemonade weather around here. I usually always keep a bag of lemons stocked in the fridge, even through the winter months because I do use fresh lemon juice in salad dressings that I make. Last night, after a full day out in the warm spring air, Lily wanted to make fresh-squeezed lemonade. She's helped me enough in the past that she was able to do it completely independently. I was so proud of her. And she was so proud to have made it to accompany our dinner last night. It's the simple things, you know?
I started some of my herb seeds earlier this week. Rosemary, sweet basil, dill, and cilantro. Things that aren't quite ready to be planted into the earth which is just a tad bit too cool still. These should be ready to transplant into my beds by the end of the month which will be perfect timing.
I've been knitting away on the cowls pictured above. I'm doing some commission work, and I'm trying to get a nice variety of colors for my customer to choose from. Whatever she doesn't buy will get listed in Serendipitee Crochet or put back in my art fair stash. I'm having so much fun knitting these cowls. It's so relaxing.
I just picked up some amazing handmade soap Wednesday after my acupuncturist appointment. Riverhouse Bath and Body is right next door so I browsed for the first time after my appointment. I bought two bars of "Baby Cakes" which is a completely all-natural, very mild soap and Lily chose a bar of the cherry soap. I also picked up a cake of "Blackberry Amber" wax to use in my wax warmer. My house smells amazing this morning, and Lily and I used the Baby Cakes last night. Oh my, what luxury! Oh the suds! I love a sudsy soap! Anyway, I just found that Kelly does have an online Etsy shop, but if you're local you really should stop in sometime because she has so many more in her shop than are on her website.. She does have limited hours so be sure to check her Facebook page before heading out.
Well, friends, have a most blessed weekend! It's supposed to be absolutely sunshiny gorgeous around here so I imagine we'll be spending most of our weekend outdoors (just the way I prefer it.)
