Moments and Memories

 "please Mom, can we have a sleepover?" my daughter pleaded.We might not have any more this summer."
 I remember how much fun I had with my cousin growing up. I recall the days when both of my older daughters had sleepovers with this special nieces' sisters.I briefly ponder the speed at which the years go by, and I really don't need to give it any thought. " Of course! " I smile. "as long as sleep is included."

Baking cookies took up some of the morning.Discovered this recipe at camp last week.Thumb print cookies.

It worked out great. There was a " shaper", a "sugarer," and a" jammer."
Don't they look delicious?

In the afternoon we decided to pay a visit to one of our favorite stores.

The name says it all.

In the end ice cream won.

Sometimes I pretend I am a tourist in my home town. I love looking at something and wondering what I would notice if this was my first visit.

There is so much beauty in this historic town.

Thank you for taking the time to stroll with us.
May the moments that are left in your summer lead to great memories in the future.

  3. Lucy,
    Oh, how I remember the sleep overs well. And I think the girls will never forget them either. Your little town looks charming... I love the historic towns the best. There is always something else to discover in them. Those cookies look so yummy.

  4. Victoria is constantly thinking of new things to tell us about the great time she had! Thank-you for sharing this 'peek' into your day. She told us at lunch about all the many flavors of ice-cream to choose...one I remember is 'death by chocolate!:)' ...and I heard big sis tell her that she always thought 'surprise sleepovers' were better than planned ones. 'No time to hatch butterflies'...(Emily)

    I took a quick break...back to beet-scrubbing.

    1. We had fun . There was so much more I would of liked to do but we ran out of time....some other time! I've been working in the garden as well, if only my tiller worked!

  5. Ahhhh... what fun! These are some of those very special memory making times. So glad you had the opportunity!

  6. Those cookies do look delicious, as does the time. I liked the "as long as sleep is involved" part:) While we've been traveling, we've also been making a list of all the things we want to remember to do in our own city when we return. Truly, there's no place like home! I think it's great that you do act like a tourist in your own home town.


thank you and blessings for words from your heart...
