Saturday Morning Breakfast
I was making french toast for some of the children this morning and it made me hungry for some as well. This is not my usual breakfast fare so I decided if I'm gonna load up on calories I may as well do it right.
Lucky? for me I had all the right things in the cupboard to make a really yummy one. Forgot the cream cheese for the picture but it's in there. ☺
2 pieces of Swirl Bread
Cream Cheese, thin layer on one
Lemon Curd and Jam on the other one
Dip in an egg/milk/cinnamon mixture and toast/fry in butter on a skillet.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar
Drizzle with Maple Syrup
I went outside early (before 6:00) to enjoy the morning beauty (who could sleep in with a beautiful day beckoning outside with the birds as cheerful as they are?!) I took my camera with me to take some pictures of the flowers.
I recently saw some double decker pots in an online magazine and told my husband what they looked like and he was able to make it happen ☺. I had some wire hanging baskets just laying around so he mounted two of them onto PVC pipe and drilled holes in the sections that are soil covered so that I can water them through the pipe instead of dumping the water directly into the pot creating a 'hole' in the plants. Does that make sense? That is one of my pet peeves of plant watering. He blocked the pipe at the bottom of the basket so the water can't go on down through and then put a spout fitting thingy (can you tell I no nothing about pipe stuff? ha) on the pipe down further so I can water it through that for the big pot. Works like a charm! ☺

Some odds and ends that were lurking and I decided
to employ them on the patio.
Love the sound of the water!
I like to sit one one of the two swings on the patio in the afternoon and just listen to the birds, the water fountain and relax and cool off and breathe in the nearby Honeysuckle. It's a cool, peaceful place to sit alone or chat with the kids or a friend.
Hope you enjoyed a little tour of my yard. ☺ I must go run a few errands and prepare food, they tell me they're hungry! Some days it feels like I'm trying to fill bottomless silos. haha, it's all good!☺
Have a blessed and wonderful weekend!
