Tea Party, Harvest & Music


I could not resist this little voice on the other end of the phone today when she said "Nana, remember the tea party we are going to have with the dolls?"  So meet the dolls Megan and Madison!!




One more picture of the girls and just one of their dolls.  This one happens to be Madison!  The little blue and white tea set I purchased years ago when we visited Caprilands Herb Gardens in Connecticut.  I let the girls use real tea cups for the first time here!  They did well with them.



Well, this is my harvest of potatoes from my 4x4 foot bed except the few I ate!  Coco enjoyed a few of the tiny ones too!



I was thrilled to find this very first cucumber of the season.  It almost went undetected!



I pulled onions out that were growing in the three pots in the driveway and laid them on the cement a couple days to dry.  They were brought in the garage at night.  They are small but I will use them anyway!  The reason they are in pots in the driveway outside the fence is so that Coco does not eat them in case you have not already guessed!!  Coco would like to be a vegetarian!  



A little of this and a little of that!  Wouldn't it be wonderful to harvest a few fresh veggies all winter!



I finally had enough zucchini to shred for the freezer for zucchini bread!  Hoping to get a little more done.



Before the girls left for home we had a little music time.  This is Cali playing her song for me.



This is Gracie playing her song.  I love my piano and I am hoping the girls will develop a love for playing the piano like I have!  This is something that I can do that does not take a lot of energy.  I have been on my  Lyme antibiotics for 7 days now and no better!  My husband thinks I don't have much patience.

You would think the medication should have an effect after a week, wouldn't you! Hope you feel better soon. Sweet grands having a tea party with you. Must see if my 12 year old grand is still interested in having one like we used to. I know for sure her little brother will be. If it involves food, he's interested.

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! Is anyone too old for a tea party as long as there is food?? LOL Hope it works out for you! Nancy

Hi Nancy! How cute the girls are having a tea party with you! Such a nice thing for you to do, making sweet memories! Your harvests look great, especially the potatoes! I wonder if I have any? I always overlook cucumbers and then they're too big! Glad you found that one in time! Good idea to plant the veggies so Coco can't get to them! So funny that she'd eat onions! It's nice to have zuchinni in the freezer to make into bread! I'm sorry you're having health problems. I hope they clear up soon! Blessings from Bama!

Hi Felecia, Thanks! Grandkids wear you out but help keep you young at heart! I was thrilled to get so many potatoes even if they weren't large. Onions are poisonous to dogs so I try to make sure she doesn't get any. I am not sure if she would like them or not. I try not to give her a chance! Have a great day! Nancy

Daphne Gould said...

I hope your Lyme clears up soon. At least you have your grandkids to distract you. A tea party with the kids sounds like fun. And those potatoes look great.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Daphne, They warned me there is no quick fix for Lyme. I do enjoy the grandkids even though I had to tell them give me an hour for a nap first! Nancy

Margaret said...

Beautiful harvests, Nancy! Your potatoes are making me anxious to dig into my bed - but I'm being patient & letting the potato foliage die back so that they hopefully store well.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Margaret, Thanks! I maybe should have waited a bit to harvest mine and then might have had larger potatoes but I wanted to plant something else in that bed as don't have a lot of room. I hope yours do well for you! Nancy

Audrey said...

Hugs,

Hi Audrey, Tea parties are always fun! I have been enjoying the potatoes now and then. So nice to have my own! Nancy

Kim said...

How wonderful that the girls called you up for a tea date! I bet you enjoyed them all day, how adorable. Feel better, I'm not that patient either! ;)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Kim, Thanks for visiting! I am afraid that I will never learn to be patient. Perhaps I can get better at it?? LOL Nancy

Found you via Henny Penny Lane's blog and glad to be here. I'm trying to grow tomatoes and zukes for the first time. Will be back.

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi At Rivercrest Cottage, Welcome! Thanks for visiting! I hope your tomatoes and zucchinis do well for you. Sometimes gardeners win and sometimes they lose! LOL Nancy

Leigh said...

Nancy, you've been busy! So glad to see some fun and relaxation time in there as well. :)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Leigh, I have not been busy enough! No energy from Lyme but it feels good just to get a little done. Nancy

Melanie said...

Hi there, it is so nice to meet you. Thanks for visiting my blog! (You said you had found me through Connie's blog.) You asked about Evanston...no, it's not in Indiana. It's right next to Chicago. I live in northern IL. :-)

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Melanie, Thanks for responding to my question. We are on the other side of Chicago in Indiana. Sure looked like an interesting place to visit! Nancy
