I have a huge patch of chives in my garden.  Just keeps getting bigger each year.  This year I read about cutting the flower heads off of the chives and putting them in vinegar to make a chive flavored vinegar. I gave it a whirl here are my results. The vinegar turned a really pretty color.  I haven't tried it yet.  I hope it tastes as good as it looks.  I have since taken the flowers out and it's an even darker shade of rose now.  Kind of fun.

It's summer vacation.  Maybe now I can write a bit more on here.  Meanwhile here are some pictures of my flowers this year.

Baltimore Inner Harbor

The next day after the wedding.  Eric, Joanne and Edwin and I went to the Inner Harbor for a lovely day of sight seeing.  We had a great time just walking around and taking in everything.  We took a water taxi which was fun.  Had lunch at a place famous for there pizza called BOP pizza.  But Edwin and I didn't have pizza instead we had cheese steak wraps which were really good.  It was great to get away for an overnight-er with our great friends.

Me and my man...

We were so privileged to be able to celebrate the marriage of Jeremy & Marsha with Dale and Carol Landis.
It was a simple but beautiful wedding and reception.  We had such a good time dancing and chatting the night away.  The weather was just perfect making everything that much more special. The food was delicious.  Congratulations to the happy couple.


Rico has been having problems with his stomach for a while now after the blood work and cat scan showed up negative for any problems the next step in determining what is going on was an endoscopy. As you can see Rico wasn't to thrilled about it. My good friend Phyllis who works at the hospital came to visit while there and brought Rico the cute dog. So sweet of her. The endoscopy showed nothing we didn't already know which is he has celiac disease. So we continue to see a gastro dr. trying to figure out what is happening. We wait and pray for Rico to feel better soon.

Lapp/Melllinger picnic 7/10/11

Got together with the Lapp's and the Mellingers for our annual picnic.  We normally have a picnic plus play baseball but the baseball didn't happen this year most likely because my aunt and uncle moved from there home which is wear we normally had the picnic and the ball field was right next to there house.  We could have easily walked down to the ball diamond but I think we were all feeling a bit lazy.  Plus it was very relaxing at my Mom's home.  The younger ones did play some volley ball.  The big excitement of the night was people getting bit by bumble bees.  About three people had a run in with the nasty offenders.  Josiah got bit 3 times.  Edwin got bit on the eyelid and Rico got bit on the arm.  He wasn't to happy about that.  But that makes for memories.  I think everyone had a really nice time and it's always good to be together with family.

A night at the Fulton Opera

On Saturday night Edwin and I went to the Fulton Opera House to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. What a lovely time. The show was done really well. Before the show we went to the Prince St. Cafe for a light dinner. Edwin got the tickets from a board member of the Opera House for a job he had done for her. How nice that was. And while at the cafe I remembered I had a gift card for there. Pretty sweet deal for a very low cost evening.

coffee on the porch

Friday morning I had a little spontaneous coffee break with
3 of my good friends. Lori, Carol and Joanne. It was a nice
little treat. I made them breakfast first and then headed
to the porch for coffee. Lori and Carol had a late start to there
cleaning job. But I think it was worth it. And well Joanne ended
up staying till 2.....haha love it.
