Horses and wagons .
Not an uncommon site where we live.
Sunday, a few of our great neighbors were out for a wagon ride.
Craig and M'lissa took Brig and Julie for a ride in the wagon, and Robert stopped by to say 'hi'.
Every day, there's a horse and wagon, or horse and rider about town.
Sunday evening... we took our own ride.
In the modern wagon.. aka.. the Tahoe.
We rode out to Pigeon Hollow drive .
The fields are beginning to green up, as are the mountains.
Signs of life.
old homestead that was nestled against the foot of the mountain.
Imagine living on this homestead back in the day.
batch of rosemary sea salt to put next to the range.
Combined a few sprigs of rosemary, some sea salt and black pepper.
I tested it out on a roast for Sunday dinner. The roast was delicious.
rosemary sea salt in this cute jar.
I found two of these little jars at the D.I. in St. George on our trip down there a few
weeks ago, and I knew just what I wanted to do with them.
I used one for my rosemary salt, and am going to give the other jar to a friend.
lemons and rosemary sprigs.
Simmered on the stove.
Made the entire house smell divine.
rosemary on the table. Perfect.
For those people that can grow and use rosemary year round, you may be tired of it.
For me, summer time is the only time that rosemary will grow around here, and I cannot get enough of it.
Three old potato mashers.
I set them on the shelf, took a good look at them
and decided which one I wanted to make a recipe holder out of.
one with the red handle won out; as it had a sort-of flat surface to glue a clothespin to.
Works like a charm.
Held my recipe for 'Rustic Bread' perfectly.
made a batch of 'Rustic Bread' for dinner.
I stirred some fresh rosemary into one of the loaves, and sprinkled just a touch of rosemary sea salt on the top.
Another week gone by.... and the end of a month too.
Signs of life ..... the crab apple trees are in blossom.
Just another week all around The Cottage.
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so grateful that Spencer and my sweet husband were able to get a huge renovation project done yesterday without incident.
I feel so much better knowing that the floor joist under the huge double book cases is now doubly supported.
~I'm grateful that the pressurized irrigation is now turned on. Means that we can begin planting.
