It's time for Colorado peaches, and I really like Colorado peaches! They're grown on the Western Slope in an area around the town of Palisade (also a place to find good wines!) and they always come into season about mid-July. We buy them from this roadside stand near our house.
These peaches are so delicious, and I slice one up to put on my cereal every morning. They make my whole wheat cereal taste like dessert! In August, when my mom comes to visit, she will have to make me a peach pie - yum!
I liked picking a carrot out of my garden this week - notice I said "a" carrot! This seems to be the only one, and it was a volunteer from last year's carrot seeds. It's so fascinating to me that the tiny carrot seed could live all through the winter and then start growing a year after it was originally planted!
It was tasty! :)
Here is a photo of my little flower garden - I like its pretty colors right now. Larkspur, marigolds, alyssum, and snapdragons seem to be happy in that garden right now.
I found a new recipe to try with zucchini noodles this week. Here's a link to the recipe, if you want to try it! Bruschetta Grilled Chicken Zoodle Bowls
The Bruschetta made with fresh tomatoes and balsamic vinegar gave the dish a yummy fresh taste, and we really liked it!
I liked helping out a friend with her first t-shirt quilt. She did all the designing and sewing, but we talked over different techniques that would make everything easier. I dug out this book that I bought a very long time ago so that she could read about how to sew on the binding. I hadn't looked at the book in awhile, and it was fun to look back through it and see my notes from projects I had made out of it.
I read Bonnie Hunter's blog and follow her on Facebook, and I like how she ends her daily posts with uplifting quotes that make me think paired with a picture of a quilt. Here's one from earlier this week:
I often think that by my age (60ish :), I should have it all figured out. I'm so glad to know that others don't either! Life definitely keeps me on my toes!
Happy Thursday! Hope life has been good to you this week!
