The boys were up for Father's Day and dropped in here for brunch ~ one of them brought me the fridge magnet that starts this post ~ it didn't take long for them to wolf down the cinnamon buns!

Lovely cloud formations lately ~ and the longest day provided a great opportunity for a walk to the beach and some sunset photos.

Do you see the hedgehog clouds?

A few roses, and honeysuckle. The dark red one is Hot Cocoa, the small pink ones are from the Fairy Rose, and the white ones are Iceberg which continues to have lots of blooms.

I am very busy this week as it's the last week of school for the students ~ not only that but I'm in the middle of going to 6 parties ~ some retirement, 3 different staff parties ~ my old school, my new school, and one where a friend is retiring. By Saturday I'll be partied out. My holidays don't start for a week or two because I have to make sure everything is completed for this year and ready for September.

BTW the cherry tree has been extremely popular this year ~ but today the ravens came! These guys were HUGE, and scared the living daylights out of me with their racket. I shooed them off! Chickadees and robins are OK, but crows and ravens can hang out somewhere else!! Usually the first cherry picking starts July 1 so I hope there are one or two left for us humans!

I've been baking as well, for the students at school who help me in the office, and for each of the parties. Tonight I made a carrot cake with cream cheese icing for tomorrow's do. Thursday it will be a chicken dish, and maybe a trifle for Friday's party.

I have been reading blogs, but haven't had time to respond as yet. Soon, though!

It's summer!!!!!!!!

  4. Hi Yolanda ~ thanks for taking time to come by and comment :) Glad you liked my buns and roses ;) We have been having such 'interesting' weather lately, sun, wind, rain...that the cloud formations are quite fascinating ~ before they get whisked away!

    Yes, a very busy time here. This was the last day of school for the children, and we had a wonderful assembly with a slide show of the students moving on to their next school. Also the 5th party is done, only one more to go tomorrow night~

    Your garden looks wonderful, Jeeves and all, and I'll be over on the weekend to comment!

    Flighty ~ pleased to hear you enjoyed the photos. The sunset was amazing...there was a little bird sitting in a tree seemingly watching it too! Just a couple of weeks, and I'll be really enjoying myself when I'm on holiday. I can't believe I've been at the 'new' school 6 months already!

    Midmarsh John ~ It's always a pleasure to share tasty buns and gorgeous sunsets,and you're right, such simple pleasures are hard to beat! Once I'm on holiday, I'm looking forward to going down to the beach more often, during the day and evening ~ get ready to go for a 'paddle'!

  5. Are those buns actually cinnamon rolls? Look so yummy :)

    Love the sunset pictures!

  6. Those cinnamon buns are making my mouth water. I had a good friend when I lived abroad who used to make them for me. She was from Nebraska and knew all about baking. You do too obviously!

  7. Hi Selby ~ Yes, those are indeed cinnamon buns ~ they didn't last long, so must make some more! Glad you enjoyed my sunset photos :)

    Roomie ~ So glad to see you! I have been so darned busy with work at school, and work at home, that the night is gone before I know it! I'm glad the cinnamon buns brought a nice memory ~ I don't bake as much as I used to, but I do enjoy baking!

  8. Yours must be the third blog to mention cinnamon rolls. I think it is a SIGN that I need to learn to make them. I really enjoyed the beautiful skies you've captured, Glo. Gorgeous sunset decorated with clouds. Over the top, really. I've heard Hot Cocoa is a really good rose (relatively disease-free, floriferous) and in a unique color to boot. Maybe I ought to give it a try when I redo the cutting bed next January.

    Oh my. Did I just say that?

  9. Hi Nikki! I have a rose that you don't have? Amazing! Yes, Hot Cocoa is a lovely rose, kind of a rusty colour and blooms nicely...I've recently bought two more roses...Big Purple, and Fragrant Cloud!

    Definitely bake some cinnamon buns! Yum.

    ...and yes, you did mention redoing the cutting bed in January...but there's lots of time to change your mind ;)
