Sweet Treats

If you are looking for some "sweet treats" to whip up on a hot Saturday, then you should check out Lisa's Sweet as Sugar Cookies blog!  She's having a party and there are some delicious looking recipes that have been posted.  Of course I'm going to check out the Blackberry Dumplings, Blackberry Peach Pie and the Blackberry Ice Cream.  I've got my eye on a couple of chocolate recipes also, but the blackberry treats are a good place to start. 

My blackberry bushes are pretty well bloomed out this year and that "devil" Mockingbird got his fair share again.  I saw him in the fig tree yesterday while I was watering...so I'm going to have to keep my eye on him so he doesn't get all the best figs!

We did some work earlier this morning on our covered deck area outside. We hung curtains so we can keep the sun out as it sets in the evening. Even with the afternoon heat, our overhead fan and a strong breeze make a little time on the deck a pleasant early evening activity, but the sun can still be really hot at that time of day.  The curtains can be pulled together until the sun sets to give relief.  Next on the outdoor list is lighting and misters.




Today...I'm determined to finish the guest room.  All the furniture is in place and we got the first layer of curtains hung.  I haven't decided on the final outcome for curtains...but I have time.  Once I finish hanging items on the walls I'll post pictures. 

till tomorrow...

I'm so jealous you have blackberry bushes! And a fig tree besides! Thanks for the link to your sherbet -- the use of buttermilk sounds neat.
