Pie recipe...cafe design ideas!

Click HERE for the strawberry pie recipe!

It's blurry because I'm a horrible photographer, AND what you don't see here
is all my people standing with forks in-hand, hurrying me along. 
I literally can't focus under such pressure!!

I'm in the thick of research and planning my POTENTIAL bakery/cafe!
It's not a sealed deal yet...but, I am feeling like such a big
business girl these days!

I thought I'd share with you some of my design ideas I found on Pinterest...







Oh, I could go on and on and on!!

But, I've got cinnamon buns to get out of the oven.

Have a glorious Tuesday, friends.

Lazy Lori

 Good Monday morning, friends!
Typically, I have long since hit the floor running by 9AM,
but guess what?  I'M STILL IN BED!
It is a CHILLY, rainy morning...and I hit a wall of EXHAUSTION over
the weekend, and I am giving myself permission to be a Lazy Lori today!

Here's some pics from our goings-on the last couple days...

 Strawberry picking!

See the look on Daisy's face?
That's exactly how I feel today.  
But, we're both hard-working mamas, so we'll pull ourselves together soon!

Lemon tarts.

Isaiah planted pumpkins.  

Field to fork fresh strawberry pie!

Snuggles on the couch on a Sunday evening!

I hope you all have a great week!

My Homestead this Week.

Good Friday to you, my friends!
I fully expect this Friday the 13th to be an abundantly blessed day!

I've been wrestling (and losing) with technology this week, 
as I have tried to get up to speed on the latest photo storage and clouds and poofs of smoke...

All I know is, it took me multiple days to get just a few ding-dang pictures/video
onto this little blog.

SO....enjoy...make postcards out of them...print them on t-shirts!!

My homestead this week:

Wynona, my window chicken, in her therapy session with me
as I washed dishes.

Have a super great weekend!

Love ya,

Cell Phone Pics of My Moderately Exciting Life

 HEY, friends!
Happy Friday to ya!

It's super sunny and delicious here in Kansas, which is nice, and always 
puts me in an extra happy mood.

I was scrolling through my 2,133 cell phone pics and thought
I'd just share some with you, since my life is soooo moderately exciting!

Here we have Lucy driving.  Yes, she's only 10 years old, I realize.
But, when we were driving down the long driveway of our neighbors' house,
I couldn't resist scooting over when she said she wished she 
could drive.  She was shocked! 

This is one of my hens.  She has a limp and was being picked on pretty severely
by the others.  Girls are mean!  So, we separated her out, and she 
found her way to my kitchen window flower box.
And the rest is history.
This is her new spot where she sleeps every night.
It makes me so happy!
And she needs a name.  I'm thinking Phyllis.  Your thoughts?

This is us while K-Man shopped for light bulbs.
I think the expressions speak for themselves.
We love him anyway.

Did I already show you this?
Not sure.
But, I made this cake for a big party at the restaurant where I waitress occasionally.

 It is my personal policy never to reveal that I am the baker of the specialty cakes,
but when they point blank asked me WHO made it (because they LOVED IT!),
I told them.  They all applauded.  It was fun!  Then I took a selfie.

This is Isaiah at a spelling bee.
He made it to the third round, but lost with the word GRINNED.
Which everyone thought was hilarious because he is ALWAYS SMILING.

This is my recent grocery cart at Sam's.
I'm going again today and I do think a flatbed is in order.

And lastly, this is my latest picture of Lucy and Macy.
This is no illusion, folks...Lucy is outgrowing her QUICKLY!!

And that's it!
I hope you all have the best weekend and Mother's Day ever!

My Visit with Patty!

 Friends, I haven't been on a vacation in I don't know HOW LONG.
Like, LONG.  

But a few weeks ago, I got on a big airplane all by my frumpy self...

(The view over Seattle...SWOON!)

 Even splurged and bought myself the deluxe cheese and fruit platter...

then landed safely somewhere in the middle of Washington state and got to
visit my very best west coast friend, PATTY!!!!

I even shared a room with JB.  3, 2, 1...let the rumors begin!

I got to spend a lot of fun time with Patty's kiddos...
they are awesome.

And even got to know the cat, up close and personal!.

We had THE BEST time!  Though I do wish it had been under better circumstances,
as it was the one year anniversary of Patty's husband's death
from brain cancer.  Sigh.  

But it was such a delight to get away and share MUCH-NEEDED laughter
with my dear friend.

Watch for our comic tour, coming to a city near you!!

(I know it looks like I have a baby bump...and as much as I'd like to think
it's just the angle...it's probably more likely a, Lori-bakes-a-million-things-a-day bump.)
