A Rainy Summer Day

 
Picked wild greens and a Hydrangea bloom yesterday for my vintage French chocolate jar!
 

A good thing since a thunderstorm throughout the night led to lovely, steady rain...all the day long.

 
 
Hung up the beach hat and picked up the "The Waiting".   Just a few chapters in and really enjoying it since it's based on a true story.  Well written, good story.
 



Baked a couple of banana tea cakes....pretty but didn't quite bake through!  I need an oven thermometer OR a new oven!  Darn.  I put them back in which seemed like forever before they were done.  Love these cute paper 'pans'.  I wonder if they were the culprits...  Oh well, they tasted delicious finally. 

So thankful for this day!!

Roberta...I haven't seen you post in so long and then I saw this! You must think I am online all the time! Ha!

Love how your pictures set the mood. I'm not a great baker so these look just great to me! Oh, I guess that's not much of a compliment. I still give you credit for sharing. :)

Post more lady!!

The rain was a welcome escape for a few days but I'm glad the sun is back! LOVE that mirror!

Can you get me the picnic issue of Jeanne d Arc? I can't seem to find it anywhere on the web, not even Amazon, to purchase.
