We’re wheeling through summer here in Carpenter Country. These long hot months bring hummingbirds at the feeder, rain showers every afternoon except when they happen in the morning or evening, blooming crocosmias, and leaping grass.
Each season has its own delights and drawbacks, just like the rest of us.
This summer, we’re also traveling across the internet, eating kumquat pie and blueberry ice cream (not at the same time), and thinking about initials carved in trees and leaky wheelbarrows. Sometimes we think about boxing and our favorite character in our mystery, Murder by the Books.
We started the week over at Divine Magazine with our kumquat pie recipe. The pie is cool and delicious and just the treat for a summer afternoon. You can find the recipe here.
Thank you, Divine Magazine!
Later in the week, author friend and marvelous cook Sloane Taylor invited us into her kitchen, where we churned up a batch of blueberry ice cream. If you have an ice cream maker, we highly recommend you churn up a batch for yourself!
Thanks for making our ice cream your July pick, Sloane!
Do you think of the pain of those who can’t speak for themselves?
A much used and appreciated garden tool was the inspiration behind another book bubble, The Wheelbarrow.
Do you make the most of where you are?
We finished the week discussing our mystery novel, Murder by the Books, in an author interview on Cheryl Holloway’s blog. We talked about our boxing skills and revealed which character was our favorite to write about. Did we choose the same person you did?
Thanks for inviting us to share your blog, Cheryl!
Are you enjoying the delights of summer?
