but most likely will be back in the beginning of
September. Ya´ll have a great summer now !

My photo / painting blog is still going strong:

Iceberg salad.

I love the crunch of a nice head of iceberg lettuce! When you
make your own dressing it get´s really special!



Food processor makes the work for ya!


Chop other veggies and add maybe some shrimp and
salmon with dill on top.

Porch get´s a new look.

Our porch needed something new....it was looking old and worn
out.....kind of like me some days :-D Wish I could fix me as easy!

Yup, old and worn out!

Uhhuh, at this point I am sweating slightly, that color is
very, very, baby blue.... uhhuuhhh! But on we go. Can´t stop now.

We manage not to paint ourselves in to a corner, not as dumb as we look, eh?!!!

It is so very cute, color is perfect against the house, my color eye
did not let us down!

Now that is a porch to have a summer on!

My husband made me that table, I painted it. Custom made
for the porch :-)

Now just a little more sun, please!

Dog: "woman, curb your enthusiasm! You know I´m going to
mess this porch up with muddy paws, dog hair, pieces of wood
chewed up, I will barf grass on this rug and most likely jump on
the white table w. muddy paws and drop that vase, you know this right....right?!
Ok....just so were are on the same page."

Quick cake.

I belive in  boxed cake mixes if you need to have a cake fast
and it has to be really good.

This Betty Crocker lemon cake was great! Moist and excellent
when mixed with some white chocolate in the flour! All you need
is water, eggs and oil.

 Be sure to mix the white chocolate in the flour, if using it, this
way the chips won´t sink in the bottom. In the owen it goes.

Done and ready to be filled.

While the cake cools a little, make the frosting. Butter, lemon juice,
grated lemon peel, vanilla.

Start adding powderd sugar until desired consistency is met.

There, stiff.

Strawberry jam and frosting.

Cover with frosting and pile on decorations, whole strawberries
look good and will stay fresh looking longer than cut up berries
