Ev'ry heart beats true
'Neath the RED WHITE and BLUE
Good morning to all!
This morning is a fine day so far.
Went to the grocery store early,
to beat the crowds.
Bought all of the grands favorite foods.
For breakfast one morning am going to surprise them
with funfetti pancakes to go along with their sausage.
Will be making a red white and blue jello poke cake
Also bought the fixins for some Smore's
Every kid I think loves this treat...especially at a bonfire,
which we will do.
This was my newest find last Saturday when Bob and I
went antiquing before getting to my mom's.
Tammy's shop is in Fort Gratiot.
She is my prim go to gal who loves stoneware.
I could not pass up this red and cream quilt.
Hand stitched with a bit of wear around the edges.
Just loved it....and for $20 could not pass it up.
Not sure if this is a bear claw pattern or not.
If anyone knows, please share with us.
July always began my Summertime at the farms.
Both gramma B and Gramma H
would put their Winter quilts away and bring out
the lighter Summer ones...just like this beauty!
Summer was when us cousins would take turns
turning the ice cream maker for some
real good ice cream at Gramma H's.
Summer was when Gramma B would take my sister & I
to the Five and Dime and we picked out our favorite candy.
Candy Cigarettes that blew out powder smoke,
Candy Necklaces, Gum and Sugary Ice Cream Cones...
just to name a few.
Summer was when my mom would plant the geraniums
all around the yard.
My dad would raise his flag up the flagpole in the morning,
and take it down at dusk.
What were some of your favorite Summertime memories?
Did you have any traditions that you had when you knew
Summertime was here.
Gramma B would make Sun Tea,
while Gramma H made us homemade lemonade.
Chocolate chip cookie bars were our favorite treat at
While Gramma H made the best fried eggs which were
cooked in the bacon grease after the bacon was cooked.
Although I do not get to see my grands as much.
The one Summertime tradition we have is doing lunch
on Harsen's Island.
This years trip will be in a few days.
They also love my devilled eggs.
Happy July 4th my friends!
Enjoy the day and make some Summertime
memories of your own!!!
Summertime Blessings To All!
