It’s raining and about 36 degrees right now here in Vermont.  Looking forward to the May flowers.


Rainy day willow trees in the Spring…….


I like Shrimp Scampi when it is sauteed in butter, garlic, white wine and lemon.  Then to put it over zucchini noodles that are made using the spiralizer, is just a must try recipe.  They sauteed the zucchini noodles in the pan where they made the sauteed the shrimp to give the noodles lots of flavor.  I saw the recipe on the Today show this morning and went in on their web page and pinned the recipe to my veggie recipe board on Pinterest.


The Pioneer Woman is giving away three aprons with the oven mitts to match to a couple or so of her web site viewers.  I entered the give away and she has a giveaway or 2 every week.  Kind of fun to have a chance to win cute stuff.


I like dangly earrings and I like Lapis and turquoise.  The above earrings are on sale at Zulily.  They are from Barse and marked down from $90.00 to $34.99.  Nice deal in my opinion.  I really like the Zulily website and I like the Loft website as well.


I saw the above idea to have on one side of your sewing and craft room.  I love the style of it.


To have the above craft table would be neat to have for both sewing and crafts and I saw at the Walmart yesterday that they have those little cube storages that would make the table really easy to make.


My cousin is in the Bella Voce Women’s Chorus of Vermont.  It is such a very fun group.  Last year they traveled to Austria and several countries.  They have a Christmas concert every year and one year they had a Spring tea.  My cousin majored in music in college and she was a music teacher at one time.  The above concert would be fun to go to.

I saw a neat recipe the other day that looked refreshing for summer.  They called it a wine slushy and all they did was to put some red wine in an ice cube tray and then when it was frozen, they put it in the blender and just pulsed it until it was like a slushy.  But I know with my blender that you have to put some kind of liquid in the bottom if you want to blend ice.

I’d like to try the above Strawberry/Rhubarb cobbler.  It’s a Barefoot Contessa recipe and I pinned on my desserts board on my Pinterest.


There is a dinner cruise boat that goes out on Lake Sunapee in NH.  We have had fun going out on that boat a couple of times and they have a buffet style dinner.  It’s like one big party.  It starts around 6:00 PM or so and on the way back to the harbor where the cruise starts, it seems like all the houses around the lake that you can see have every one of their lights on in their house including lantern like porch lights like the above photo.  The above house is on Lake Sunapee and it’s an open beam Yankee Barn home.  I just love the style of it and it’s right on the lake.

So I was looking at my weather app on my cell phone and it says 37 degrees and light rain but it feels like 32 degrees.  Looking forward to better weather. ❤

And that’s my thoughts for today……..

  1. Regarding the wine slushy, don’t freeze the whole bottle. Reserve (maybe) 1 cup and add it to the blender when you’re ready to blitz your “wine cubes”. That way you don’t water down your drink 😉 Or you could use orange juice for a kind of quickie sangria.
