Hello All! I hope you are enjoying your summer. We have has a few hot and steamy days here, but they say the next few days are going to be dry and gorgeous. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Last week we celebrated my Hubby's Birthday on Wednesday. In between the time he left for work and the time I left I decorated our dining room table so he would have a little surprise when he came home.

That afternoon, I got a cute text from him when he arrived home, saying thank you and how special I made him feel. There is no better feeling than making the one you love feel loved a whole bunch!

So what might you ask are in those presents.... Well, My Hubby just loves his ice cream, so when I was thinking of what to get him for his birthday (and since he did throw any hints my way) I bought him an ice cream maker, a Ben & Jerry's recipe book (his favorite ice cream company), and all the fixing to go with it.

He was so thrilled!!! He checked out all the recipes and decided he wanted to make a sorbet first. So the next day, after work, I stop at a local farm stand and picked up some ripe raspberries. We got out all the ingredients and we were off making sorbet.
I got him the Cuisinart ICE-21

Can you believe the color... no food color here, only fresh raspberries. It only took about 15 minutes for the sorbet to come together. When it finished it is like a soft serve consistency, so we put it into a container and placed it in the freezer. After an hour it was ready.

OMG guys!! It tasted fantastic, such a punch of flavor, not at all like what you get from the store.

We took last Friday and Monday off to have a little stay-cation. On Friday, we headed out about 10am and stopped for breakfast at our local diner. We then took a rural route north and passed by farm stands and such. We stopped by a local orchard for some cider.

We sat outside enjoying the view and great weather (it was dry, breezy and in the upper 70s) It was a top ten perfect summer day.

Of course I had to take a goofy picture.

This one is for my Mom, as her and I have this running joke about sunflowers!!! Love you Mom!

The Hubby and I had such a fantastic time together, no real destination, laughing, and joking. We ending the day with a great dinner. Sometimes the best times are the ones that are not even planned.

Enjoy your week!
