It's June, wait...what?

I'm having a hard time getting my head around the fact that it's June.  May was a blur.  Long hours at work and a husband working out of town made for a month of just getting through the day, and then just making it to the weekend.  The weather has been glorious, although I've had little time to spend outside and enjoy it.  I'm grateful for the warmth and sunshine...something we waited a long time for this year.  And I'm happy to see so many shades of green colouring our world again.

Mother's Day was quiet.
And as busy as we are, I'm still feeling a little lost.  For the first time in 20 years no one is playing any outdoor summer sports.  No soccer, no baseball, no football.  I should be jumping for joy that I'm not running like an idiot from one field to the next, trying to keep up with their conflicting schedules... but the truth of the matter is that I miss it.  A lot.

But there's always summer hockey.  Nothing like sitting in an ice cold rink wearing shorts and sandals.

Last but not least, I have a slew of recipes to share.  I've finally managed to pull off a really good homemade,  nut-free granola bar for the kids lunches.  I've been struggling to keep their lunches interesting as we near the end of the school year, and the healthified baked goods I've been trying haven't all been well received, but these granola bars were a great success.  I've also been using my crock pot a lot lately and have a few slow cooker gems to share.   And there was sticky toffee pudding, with caramel sauce from scratch...

...which was totally worth the half hour I spent stirring.

Stay tuned.


  1. Hi Jenn, just stopped by to let you know that you've been featured over at Carole's Chatter today. Cheers

  2. Love the flower box and all the greenery.
    I am so thankful all 3 of my kids play soccer on the same night, in the same place, at the same time!! A bona fide miracle right there :)

  3. I feel the same about May.....where did it go? x

  4. I'm fascinated with the hockey photos. They are all great! The scenes from your garden are wonderful, too.

  5. I love that pudding. I am sorry I cant concentrate on the other photo. Im sick and everything I eat goes out of the body right up (TMI, sorry) .. so needless to say I am distracted cuz I am hungry =P
