Sunday musings, and blueberries too!

I am going to admit
that as a mother to a four year old...
most of the time I am all over the place!
I have not mastered being a scheduler, not great at all at keeping up
with the toys and mess that is created,
and often can't remember why I even walked down the
hallway sometimes when I get to the end!

In the last few years paying $4 for a pint has been a real
After making the trek out to Bush Neck Farms....
I don't think we will ever go back to buying them in the store.
Something i have also been trying really hard to do is buy and support local farms.
Not only do you know where the food is coming from 
but it TASTES sooooo much better!
These were the sweetest I have had in years!
I must admit several never made it into the bucket!
 This is the last surviving piece of the Blueberry Coffee Cake
I made this week...
My family absolutely loves this recipe!
I knew when my grandfather approved of it years ago
it was a keeper!
You can find it in this wonderful cookbook by one of my favorite
illustrators and all around beautiful eccentrics...
Tasha Tudor.
You can purchase it here at the

Hope you had a great weekend
and to hoping I find out where my camera card went to!
