It sure feels like summer here...hot and humid! I bought way too many discounted bags of ripened bananas recently. It was our turn to bring breakfast for the teenagers at our church's early morning bible study class. I decided that I would make some banana bread to bring in with fresh fruit. I ended up having so many bananas that my kitchenAid shifted into overdrive. I kept having to make loaf after loaf to use up all the bananas that I had bought! Then, Grace found a recipe online for banana cream pie and asked if she could try to make it. Of course, I happily obliged! :)
Next time, I think I will stick to buying bagels!

~our apple trees
Spring seemed to last unusually long this year. We tried to savor every moment of it. The displays around town of pinks, lavender, yellow, whites...were simply stunning.
Thank you, God, and Welcome Summer.

An apostle of Jesus Christ speaks about the significance of the little "forget-me-not" flower, and finds meaning in each of the five little petals for me and you.
President Uchtdorf says, "And I know something else: as an Apostle of our Master, Jesus Christ, I proclaim with all the certainty and conviction of my heart—neither are you!
You are not forgotten.
Sisters, wherever you are, whatever your circumstances may be, you are not forgotten. No matter how dark your days may seem, no matter how insignificant you may feel, no matter how overshadowed you think you may be, your Heavenly Father has not forgotten you. In fact, He loves you with an infinite love."

It is 70 degrees here in PA, and there is sunshine to boot! I decided not to plant a garden this year since we will be out of town for an extended period of time this summer. But that hasn't stopped me from taking advantage of this gorgeous weather and spending some time working out in the yard.
I think it's time to share a little project with you! When I did the Christmas home tour this year, I got so many compliments on my terrarium. When I mentioned that it was made out of picture frames, everyone was so surprised! I can't take credit for the idea. I found it online. It was a relatively inexpensive project for me, because I already had most of the frames. I know that my 11x14 inch frames came from Walmart (those cheap $3 or so ones on the end caps), and the others either came from there also, or from the dollar store. Some may have even come from yard sales!
I didn't take pictures during the process of making mine, and I can't remember where I got the idea, but I looked on the Internet and you can find all sorts of tutorials on how to make them~ like this one here. The great thing is that you can switch out your display for the different seasons! I really like mine, and leave it up year round.
Have a great day!
