I'd Much Rather Be.....

I'd rather be cooking dinner for my girlfriends then trying to find auto parts for hours on end!!! It has been a long time since I've worked so many hours in a row standing...... Only 2 more days, then I'm looking forward to a little road trip on Saturday. (By the way, this is Randy's amazing kitchen in Sunriver)
After a quick shower and dinner I spent a little time enjoying my flower garden. Here are a few that the deer usually leave alone.

I have tons of lavender that self seeds every year. The bees love it.

Even our dog is tired of being cooped up while I'm away. He always looks forward to a bit of action when we get home.
Have a wonderful Thursday!!


  1. I love your apron! You have the best smile! You look a lot like my mary, did you ever notice that? Or maybe it's just me ;)
    Your lavender is incredible - do you cut it and dry it?
    What a sweet pup - don't they just love rolling in the green grass :)

  2. Love your photos! Is this a type of lavendar that has a scent and dries well?
    So happy for you that you are on the "home" stretch, no pun intended.... :)

  3. Knock-out apron! I'd rather be in the kitchen too, fun! Lovely garden and great photos! Happy trails! Thanks for a great blog!

  4. How pretty you are! How great the flowers for the bees. That's so good for the earth. :) I love the cute, cute, cute picture "Our Dog" but does he have a name? :>

  5. You are obviously one happy-in-the-kitchen gal and that apron is adorable.
    I can almost smell the lavender from your photos.

  6. What a great pic of you...gorgeous apron too. The flowers are beautiful...deer in your garden? Wow...I would get kangaroos if I left the gate open!

  7. Is that you and your apron? Dang you got a chicken apron. I thought about making one out of that chicken fabric. I love it! I made one for Holly out of the red beater fabric though!

  8. Forgot to say that I LOVE that antique quilt in your header!

  9. Your flower pictures are wonderful!! Hope the next 2 days fly by. Fun apron!

  10. Thanks for the lovely post! It looks like you are having loads of fun: gorgeous flowers and sweet pup!
    Have a great trip!

  11. Yes, cooking for girlfriends is fun! Just did it Wednesday and will again tomorrow. Have a fun road trip although your garden is a joy!

    Hugs from Holland ~

  12. By now the work week should be over? It's so hard jumping out of our usual routines? I hope you made it out need a reward? ;)
    I loved seeing your lavender..and your sweet pup. They sure do know how to welcome a gal home don't they? :)

  13. Really enjoyed your garden pictures. We have the same taste in flowers - can't resist purple and yellow together. I have a large clump of black eyed susans that I get to stare at out my kitchen window every day - always makes me smile and feel lucky to have a yard!

  14. Sounds like both Mom and Dog need some Play Time.

    Have a good weekend.
