Weekend Chit~Chat

Thank you to all who joined in for show and tell and your comments about my early Christmas gifts! I always enjoying seeing your treasures, too. Not much is happening in my gardens, but I did see a few Wisteria blooms this week.

Last night I made Mrs. H's delicious Blueberry Crumb Cake.

We all enjoyed a slice out on the pack patio after dinner.

The recipe makes two cakes, so I saved one for Saturday morning. Getting up at 6:00am isn't so bad when there's blueberry cake and hot coffee, right?!

Our weekend plans include taking a meal over to some friends who just had a baby. We will grill this evening and I would like to squeeze in some sewing. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
