A few things before I go:
The layouts are up at my AYM Blog: http://barbaraeadsaym.blogspot.com/
I was upstairs and decided to take a few pictures from above. I'm calling them "a view from above."
Stepping stones leading to the "used to be" shade garden under the arbor.
I bought this little brown sugar scoop at Dolly's Pancake Parlor in Vermont. I thought it was so cute---and I don't have a scoop for my brown sugar. Since I use it straight from the bag, this will force me to put it in a little bowl the 2 times a year we use if for other than baking.
Lastly, I know I said I'd never mention my hives here again---and I'm not. Seems I have something totally different now. I just thought my hives had evolved in to something else. I have a rash completely covering the mid-section of my torso. It itches maddeningly. I have a prescription that takes care of that, but guess what? That medication causes weight gain! Figures. At least I'm still off the prednisone---and for that I am truly grateful.
Have a great weekend y'all!
