That annoying grinding, grating noise of a lawn mower woke me
somewhat early yesterday morning! Right away I knew it was our mower
and that Bob was already up and out.
Getting an early start on outdoor projects, due to another day in the high
90's, is necessary for health and safety. By 9 AM the lawn looked
great - quite green again as we've had some brief but welcomed
afternoon rains - all neat and clean as Bob always trims the edges and
finishes up with the blower.
By 10 AM we were running errands and back home again before the outdoor
heat finished us off for the day.
One job was accomplished recently, cleaning crystals.
Can't stand them when they get cloudy.
I have several vintage chandeliers and sconces with old glass crystals
which do get grimy from every day living dust.
Easiest way is to pull an old white cotton sock over your hand, spray
with window cleaner then gently wipe each dangling crystal.
This removes sticky grime, brings back the glitter and makes one think of
cool, sparkly raindrops........a great feeling on these hot, dry summer days.
Do you have a fun weekend planned?
Whatever you do and wherever you are, enjoy.
I'm thinking of making this dessert as we are still picking figs. . . . . . .
last year I made it and added pears which was yummy.
