And whipped up some piima-cultured butter to go with it

Add in some editing, drafting two new scenes (mine), dinner out with friends, an afternoon of yard cleanup and a soak in the hot tub, and we had a couple of restful yet productive days here at Hearth Cricket.

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!


  1. Great photos!

    My weekend was slightly less productive :-)

  2. When do you sleep, Cricket? I don't know how you do all this stuff and still write your books.

  3. Ha! Well, I usually don't write more than three or four hours a day, plus there's plenty of canning, baking, and simmering time in which to write! Much easier than trying to fit in the outside activities like gardening.
