Have you ever heard of lavender lemonade? While I haven't tried it yet, I heard about it on the Oprah Winfrey show. Now, ya gotta trust Oprah, right? It sounds refreshing to me so I'm gonna give it a go before the end of summer!
•3 cups sugar
•7 sprigs lavender (stems and buds), plus additional for garnish*
•2 cups fresh lemon juice (from about 12 lemons)
•1/2 cup fresh lime juice (from about 5 limes)
In a large saucepan, bring one gallon of water and the sugar to a boil. Remove from heat; add 7 lavender sprigs and lemon and lime juices. Cool to room temperature, strain, and chill. Serve on ice, with additional lavender for garnish.

I will be thinking of the perfect place to display them aside from the times when I'm alone and playing dress-up and pretending I lived in the 40's. Lol!
Thank you SO VERY MUCH, Sachi! I will cherish them forever and ever and ever!!! What a special gift from a very special friend. xo

Also, if you can all send some prayers again for Mocha. She had a bout with an infection and stopped eating for a day and a half. After a vet visit and antibiotics she is eating like a pig again but still very thin. I'm hoping she will put some weight back on. On this visit with a new vet, however, she did not feel a mass like her former vet did but it still could be something more serious than Irritable Bowel Disease. Stabilizing her is all I'm asking for. :) I call her my Energizer bunny. Lol! Thank you!

Fresh picked peas...
And into the frying pan they go. It's very easy. I sauteed diced onions in a little butter and olive oil until brown, then I added the peas (you can use frozen peas) and the sugar snap peas. Add a little salt and pepper and let it cook until done or at least how well done you like them. :)
