The garlic scapes are in!


Today was the day for cutting garlic scapes.  In trying to figure out how to use them, I ran across this excellent recipe to help me preserve them all.  I also made a nice bouquet for the table.  The purple blossoms are from elephant garlic, and the white scapes are regular garlic.

My husband and I went to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.  My mom sent us a card wishing us a happy anniversary with $10 in it knowing we were going to the beach and told us to buy ourselves each an ice cream cone.  While this is not a lot of money, if she hadn't suggested it, we would never have done it.  We are too used to being frugal.  We took our camper and parked at a state camp site. In the picture, my husband is trying to figure out how to take a selfie (if we have done this before, it was so long ago neither of us knew how). . .This is on the dock at Carolina Beach.

My brother is getting ready to have hip replacement surgery.  I managed to find him a walker for $2.50 at a thrift store and used some leftover fabric to make a pouch for it.  I also found a cane at the Goodwill store for $4.99.  

I have been working with feed bags given to me by a friend (Thanks Anna!)  I made a tote bag and some larger totes for under our camper couch.  Life is Good!
