A bit of this, and a bit of that........

Is it just me or do you also think that July is just flying by?  We are already on the 20th of the month......

Had work on Monday, nothing exciting happened, and I didn't have to get my big stick out to sort everyone out...LOL

Molly was fine and no accidents, however I do believe she was sulking when I got home.  She's not used to be left all alone all day.  I am treating her for another ear infection at the moment, not an unusual thing for a beagle I guess........

After supper I picked some more raspberries.  I should have enough now to make at least one batch of jam.

On Sunday we went to Home Depot and I picked up this Hydrangea called Blushing Bride  It was on sale for only $7.  I will try and get it planted on Tuesday.

I forgot to mention I have cashed in more Swagbucks, so will have $105 in my Amazon account now, so if you haven't already joined Swagbucks you should.  I have been a member now since the end of November, so it's easy enough to do..........

Also I checked my sitemeter for the first time in a while and got quite a shock to find that I am averaging 274 individual readers per day????  So I wanted to say a big thank you to each and every one of you.  I figured I would only have 150 or so.  Please feel free to leave a comment...............I may not get back to your blog right away, but I do visit eventually!!!

Thanks for the info about Amazon I'll check it out. Hadn't heard of it.

Fresher than fresh raspberries, from your own garden, doesn't get any better than that. Lovely post again Gill, and I hope Molly's ears clear up soon. Yes, time is flying by.

Those raspberries are gorgeous! . . . . We picked blackberries yesterday, and I made a quart of syrup for biscuits and waffles.

Agreed - July is racing by. It seems like only yesterday it was winter.

I love raspberries. For my aunt I made Kuchen--a recipe is on my blog somewhere. Cherry, Apricot, and one prune. I received my recipe from someone who spoke only the German/Russian dialect for many years. I guess you can consider it an ethnic recipe! I should have made her your rhubarb pie, but I was being lazy about piecrust.

mmm... raspberries! They look so good. Jam sounds wonderful.
(Re: cabbage... Sometimes I hang a whole cabbage at head height in the chicken pen for the hens to peck away at.)

Those raspberries look yummy. I didn't get a lot from mine because the raspberries were ready just when we were making hay. I agree it's unbelievable that we are so far into July.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
