Peach Galettes



Our Blushing Star peaches have finally started to ripen, so our little girl made two galettes for coffee hour today!  We love the Summer Fruit Galette recipe that Alicia Paulson posted on her blog awhile ago.

Today was so incredibly busy.  I don't think that I sat down all day until after Vespers!  It felt good to indulge in a cheese danish and cut a few blooms for my bedside table in the twilight.

Namesday Cake(s)






Sweet Sugar Plum chose Lemon Bliss Cake with lemon glaze for her namesday cake today.  We baked it in the pan we bought for our recent May 26th birthdays and decorated the little cakes with the spray roses we bought yesterday.  We decided to serve them on our everyday plates at different levels...  one by itself, one on top of an inverted tea cup and one on an overturned mug.  I love how they turned out! 

Joyous Feast of Saint Elisabeth!

Monday





The fridge is stocked with leftovers from a busy weekend with guests, so lunch was an easy one today.  I enjoyed reading a book while I ate called, The Shopkeeper's Home, and got a lot of inspiration for our house and a little rearranging that I'm in the mood to do.  

We took a little trip to the library this afternoon to get a fresh stack of books.  I'm waiting for a bunch of Prime Suspect dvds to come in.  I enjoyed the recent Prime Suspect: Tennison show that was recently on Masterpiece and I'm now excited to continue the story.  

Our little girl's namesday is tomorrow, so we bought roses for the table and for her cake.  I love the ones that she picked out, don't you?  I'll be wrapping her gifts tonight and setting up the table for her to wake up to.  We have a full day planned and I can't wait!
