from our own tree

Picked cherries from our very own cherry trees.

Bought apricots, cherries, peaches, plums, pluots and strawberries from the farmer's market.

Broke in our season passes to the local water park.

Walked around in last year's swimsuit and this year's new and not so improved body.

Decided appearance is a state of mind.

Sucked in my tummy, threw my shoulders back and held my head high.

Made honey lavender ice cream.

Ate Avery's scoop.

Won't make that flavor again.

Planted more squash and beans.

Served breakfast on the back patio.




  1. Love the two cheery cherry photo!

    The week is punctuated by the weeks end. Your activities were diverse and good choices!

    Happy day!

    sounds like a perfect weekend.

  3. Sounds delightful! That flavor didn't taste so good? But it sounded truly wonderful.

    Sounds just about perfect.

    Your cherry photo is beautiful.

    What went wrong with the ice cream? It sounds like a good flavor.

  5. i can't say exactly what went wrong with the ice cream. for one, my daughter doesn't like honey. my husband said, "it's got good texture." i think we'll try vanilla bean next. then rose.

  6. your right appearance is a state of mind. and the name of the ice cream just sounds so good but mmmm... vanilla bean sounds great too.

  7. I made a honey lavender avocado lime sorbet recently and it was lovely. I went for essential oil to keep the texture smooth and the avocado kept the sorbet nice and creamy. Coincidentally, I blogged the recipe in the same post as my make. do. towels inspired by you! http://chazandginger.blogspot.com/2010/05/make-do-in-may.html

  8. WATER PARK!!!! OH, how I love a water slide!!! Too bad about the ice cream but there are worse things to make mistakes with I guess... : )

  9. Sounds wonderful indeed.

    How brilliant to have a cheery tree. Perhaps a cherry ice cream is in order?

    Although it is supposedly Winter here in Australia, our poor confused apricot tree has produced a few flowers. I hope it doesn't forget when to fruit. :)

  10. breakfast on the back patio is so symbolic. As is buying all that fruit at the market. It's like striking gold.

  11. sounds wonderful! i love the photo with the eggs.

  12. I cannot believe you are eating soft fruits already.

    We finally had a day of sunshine on Saturday. It was most lovely.

    This weekend we organized - my 15 years applied for jobs/ volunteer activities.

  13. Ahhhhh, the sights and smells of fresh fruit. I wish this rain would let up so we'd see some summer. Hard to believe looking at the calendar and outside that it's actually June. :-(

  14. We bought quite a bit of fresh vegetables at the Farmer's Market, we've really gotten into the chinese greens! Your weekend sounds wonderful. Ours was! Love ya

  15. yay for cherries and all the other summer fruits!

  16. honey lavender, what an adverturous flavor. i have yet to eat anything "lavender", but i am getting up the courage. i really have no idea what it might taste like. i have an idea that it may taste just like it smells. what do you think? also, i am very jealous that you have a cherry tree as cherries are my absolute favorite fruit ever!
