A fun day at home today. We baked and made my little one and I. These days are becoming like gold now that she has started at school and I am finding that we are doing many of our old favourites on her odd days at home. The oat cookies were a winner and will be popped into tomorrows lunch boxes.

Oat cookies -

1 cup of butter, 1 cup sugar, 2 eggs, dash of vanilla, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp baking soda, pinch of salt, 2 cups oats. - cream butter and sugar, beat in eggs, add vanilla, sift in flour, soda, salt then stir in oats. Cook at moderate heat for about 15 minutes until golden. x

days of summer

Counting down the days now. I have enjoyed sitting on the porch at night and gazing up at the summer skies, sipping cold beer with an ice cube or two, the trips to the beach and the swims at the local pool, but now I feel ready to bid goodbye to the dry heat, the long days and the bright skies. I wonder when summer will be ready to bid us farewell.

all that glitters all that's golden A short break away to the coast. Our eyes squinting at the dazzling ocean hit by the morning sun. So many wildflowers and grasses on the winding roads.
