Joining T over at Bleubeard and Elizabeath's-just share a drink related photo to join in, link in my sidebar.
I am sharing a few photos this week.
Some of you may remember from last year a visit from the "deck duck" I had just been wondering if she/he would visit us again and the duck arrived the next day. Larry thinks this is the same duck just more mature.
This was taken early morning, full sun with steam from the lake. We are dropping into the low 50's and high 40's F at night for several days now. By 11 am it warms up to the high 70's and low 80's F during the day so really perfect weather for this long weekend.
Friday I baked up yellow angel food cakes for the both of us to go with the lovely fresh strawberries and blackberries I had picked up at the grocery store. They came out so good even the gluten free version.
The first photo is the wheat cake and the second is the gluten free version. I had extra egg whites after separating the eggs so added them to the gluten free cake-gave it the extra volume it needed.
These rose so much this time I had a bit of difficulty getting them out of the pans.
Gluten free cake below. I froze most of mine in single servings, as gf baked goods will dry out faster than the wheat cakes do.
Of course the lake was totally bonkers with many many boats of all sizes. I am writing this up early Sunday evening and the lake is still full of boats going every which way. I only got a couple photos, as I pretty much "hid" in the house with all the commotion. lol I did get to enjoy fireworks from the neighbors Saturday evening. Am hoping the one straight across from us will display more fireworks again tonight-he is a professional so the show is amazing. I have such an amazing indoor view of his fireworks show.
This photo below is taken looking to the right of the deck-where the lake really opens up for a bit and where lots of boats come in at. It is fun to see all the different types of boats-all sizes and some very very expensive ones too.
We had friends that came up to go fishing for a bit Sunday morning off our dock-In a couple hours they caught a large bucket full of crappie, bass, and catfish-good eats. The grandfather lives in Colorado and he loves to fish when he visits his family (our friends)
I forgot to take photos but I did finish up the limincello recipe on Wednesday. I divided it into two gallon water bottles and stored them in the freezer. Each bottle was about half full-for expansion. Will be better tasting in another month or so.
For my drink share-a cup of white tea that I had picked up at the Amish food store
and I will close with this surprise-This really nice bird feeder was gifted to us by our lake friends for Christmas. Told us it was squirrel proof. I had to laugh at that because I have yet to find a bird feeder that is squirrel proof or raccoon proof. Over this busy weekend-the new squirrel youngsters have been a handful, that I have had to bring in the seed feeders so they don't destroy them Sometimes there 6-8 youngsters eating all the bird seed.
Yep this squirrel managed to get through the cage area that is suppose to protect the seed feeder. I don't think an adult squirrel could get in though.
Happy T and new week
