Piddling Around

I think that is what I do, but I do have a "piddling" routine,
somewhat at least.
Right now, the caterpillars get my full attention first thing in the morning.
They have to be fed and the cage has to be cleaned.

A few mornings ago,

I made Ducan Hines Simple Mornings Blueberry Muffins

They had a streusel on top and they were very good.
They needed more blueberries, 
which I had in the freezer and didn't add/didn't know,
I would make these again and next time I will add more.

I usually prep all of the ingredients for supper late morning,
I always feel tired and uninspired at dinner time.
Having the ingredients prepped helps a lot.

Watering the garden is also in there early in the morning.
Laundry, office days are so busy, I never seem to fit it all in.

I have been knitting some.
Here is what I started and I showed you on Monday,
The Trellis Shawl
it is starting to look like something now.

As the evening was winding down,
I heard the ice cream man!
The hubs ran as if we might miss it.
My phone rang and he said the line was 10 kids deep.
those kids next door and their friends...
It didn't take too long and he appeared with 2 ice creams...

A chocolate eclair for me...
and an original for him.

It's been hot and very humid...but I do not have any trouble filling up the days!!

We had a swim in the pool yesterday, the water was 89 degrees.
We tied at Corn Hole...I just threw him a bone!

That's a wrap...these are the days that go in the book!

We must be in sync, I just made a blueberry loaf bread. I might have used too many blueberries. But, it is tasty.
I think we are supposed to get a break with the hot and humid weather soon? I hope so. We did finally have some rain, heavy thunderstorms. It has been to dry here. I like the color of your new shawl. The ice cream looks good, I have not had one of those in years. Take care, have a happy day!

You "piddle" well:) Your pool is so pretty, just could sit and look at it.

I just made zucchini bread! Must be a day for baking. I love the colour of your shawl.

What a beautiful view Debbie. Your days are like mine. Just lots of homey things to do. I love that green you are making with that shawl. I love that the line was 10 kids deep. Too cute. Have a lovely day.

Linda said...

I loved hearing how you fill each day with such wonderful tasks! Piddle is such a good word!

It is good to be busy. Certainly helps the days go along faster.

Marie Smith said...

I stay busy the same way without the knitting and pool time. We walk early when it’s cool too.

Good to kepp body and mind active and you seem to be doing a good job at that. Your knitting has come on very well.

Your shawl is looking great, looks like you are getting the pattern perfectly and it will be a nice lightweight one, pretty color!
I like the same kind of bar but the strawberry or cherry one :) I have only heard our ice cream truck once so far this year.
Oh that pool looks so nice :)

Looks like a nice way to spend the day. That ice cream looked good and so did you supper fixings. - A dip in the pool would be nice (it's been hot here) but I can't swim so I guess just dangling my legs in would have to do.

Sounds a good day, your pool looks very inviting.

All the best Jan

As always, I love your baking and cooking ones. The food always looks so yummy. You do have a busy but fun schedule. I love your knitting project. Your pool is so beautiful and your view spectacular. I think it is so cute that your hubby runs for the ice cream truck. Your choices look delicious.
Fun thoughts and hugs for this one!
