It's a Hot One!

Birchwood Dairies is part of the Circle Tours in the Valley.
There is nothing better than driving out to the country,
knowing there is fresh home-made ice-cream at the other end.

While I was sitting licking my ice-cream cone,
I glanced up and thought,
Sheer Determination!
Nothing is going to stop him from enjoying a
grocery cart filled with ice-cream buckets.

It's been hot and he knows where to cool off.

Oh by the way, check out this Blueberrry Scone Recipe.
I made a batch yesterday, I think another one today....

Anneliese Blueberry Scones
It won't take any time and those will be scooped up!

Oh, by the way,
Happy Birthday Frank!

  1. Happy birthday to Frank! I love that quote..lol...so true!

    I've seen those scones in Judy's blog and copied the recipe then. I have the blueberries so I might give in and finally make them although my waistline tells me not to. They look too good to resist!

  5. I make batches of those delicious blueberry scones whenever we have house guests. They are so tasty, low in calories, and just perfect for lingering over with a cup of tea in the morning.

    It's been HOT here too. Already half way through summer though..so I'm enjoying,not complaining.

  6. Hi Marg! Thanks for stopping by!
    Anneliese's blueberry scones look fabulous... and pretty light... only 1/4 cup butter...and 1/4 sugar...not bad!
    I'm so glad that Anneliese began to write... what a blessing her posts are.
    Ice cream is a great reward isn't it ~ the photo of the 'determined' man...

  11. I have the day off of work, and I'm out blog cruising.

    And, seeing all of the wonderful berry dishes is making me hungry. And, I just so happen to have some blueberries. I better get busy.

    Happy Birthday to Frank.
