Mark and I are always full of ideas that we float back and forth with one another.
Not that we always agree on the implementation of the idea.
We have some amazingly wicked disagreements in the studio as we toss things at one another, like butter on a hot day.
But, when we walk away from the studio we work hard at not taking those disagreements home with us.
This is probably why we can work together and stay married.
Leave work at the door, like muddy boots, best left outside the house.
One of the latest of the ideas was to bring back the "keeper of the butter".
We have one of these that we kept from many years ago that sits on the counter all year round with butter inside.
It is probably more of a challenge in the summer, but you can just pop it in the refrigerator if you don't like it to stay out. The other thing we do is cut the stick of butter in half that way you don't have so much sitting out at a time.
We love that when you want butter it is at the ready.
Do we use gobs of butter?
No, but we have always preferred it over, its strange and once removed cousin, margarine, what is really in that stuff anyway?
I planted these nasturtiums this year. They are very happy with the cool, wet spring we have been having.
Last year the ones I planted just gave up, they were miserable,spindly shadows of these.
I enjoy planting flowers but I don't enjoy when they are unhappy.
I also moved some daylilies that had become shaded by a tree and were no longer blooming.
It has been so long that I forgot what I bought.
When they bloomed I thought, "well, of course".
They are deep with reds and I seem to roll that way.
It is also a dwarf variety.
Look at that face, so sweet.
Now to catch up with some chickens that I am looking after.
Back to read some blogs and leave my 2 cents worth later.
