Summer's end is near, and I'm not sure if I am relieved or saddened. Living in Idaho, about the middle of February I am cursing mother nature. Praying for warmer weather. I sometimes feel us Idahoans get jilted when it comes to weather. We barely get a fall, then winter is sooooo long and summer seems to fly by, and then before we know it winter again. I shouldn't complain, being from California; Idaho is by far one of the most beautiful states to live in. I love that I am surrounded by mountains and farm land. I wouldn't want to live in the "suburbs" Going home for a month was what I needed. I feel like myself again. I miss my Momma terribly and wish I didn't live so far away from her. Thank goodness for blogs and the internet. They help keep my sanity. So here's to fall, my favorite season of all.

With the weather being so hot outside I decided to finish canning the remainder of Apricots from tree one. I still have one more tree and I have no idea what to do with them. Since I left California I have been craving my Sisters Veggie Dip she made for my Nephew's 2nd Birthday. I didn't have all the herbs she used so I used what I had. Basil & Cilantro. The pictures are in the reversed order obviously. I still am trying to figure this computer out. Will post the recipe

So I have discovered Mod Podge...... It is a little tricky and will take plenty of practice and projects to master it. I think for my first time using it, my chair and boring old cookie jars turned out pretty stinkin cute. Now on to linen and stamps.......
