Summer, Thursday Favorite Things

Delicious Summer Salads at Thursday Favorite Things

Happy  May and welcome to TFT! This is now my sixth year co-hosting this fabulous weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers!
NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST).


If you are looking for inspiration, want to share new ideas or make new friends, you’ve come to the right place!


What in the world have I been doing????

It may seem as if I have been MIA in the blog world, and indeed it has been a struggle the past couple of months. There has been so much going on at work with my choir students doing so well and qualifying for state events, as well as moving our son to Rhode Island for the summer and just trying to get this house finished up and in order, I just haven’t had to to post new content. I am actually STILL working until Monday, but after that I plan to write a BIG blog post to catch up on everything that has been going on around the house, some health updates and plans for the summer.

For now, here’s a look at the how the planters around the front porch are looking!


I just planted these up yesterday so they will fill out and look even more lush as summer progresses, with creeping jenny and sedum spilling over the sides. I am just so happy to FINALLY get something done around here! I have a few more photos to share in a garden post that will go live on Saturday! Please do plan to stop back by and catch up. I have missed all of you!


Now here are some lovely features from last week’s party!

    Mmmm – delicious looking salads – is it lunch time yet !?! Wow – you have been busy! The end of the year is always fraught, and with your choir events I can see why you’ve had to slow down online a bit! Hope you get some relaxing in after Monday! Thanks as always for hosting – I’m at #29 this week. Take care till next time!
