  • Oh my goodness, do I have tarragon this year. It has exploded into what I would call a bush of tarragon.

    That is okay though because it makes me really feel like a good gardener, even though I’m not. I am just lucky. 

    Would you believe that I have plants finally coming up that I planted a couple of years ago and thought they were dead? I guess with all of this rain, they finally decided to raise their lovely heads. It is so amazing.  I truly feel blessed.

  • I noticed on Facebook that some of you mentioned meals you had fixed for your husbands and fathers for Father’s Day.  In fact, I see a lot more comments regarding what you have fixed for dinner, a dessert you made, brunches and so on. 

    I have heard, in the past, “Oh I don’t cook or I don’t like to cook,” but with the economy the way it is now, it has forced many of us to go back to cooking.  I am so impressed with everyone!
