my diary – like Anita Dwyer’s
Anyone read the June 13th post on the diary of Anita Dwyer Withers? Well, I’m writing my own diary like she did- short entries of this and that. Didn’t write as much as she did and she had a quill pen unlike my keyboard. She couldn’t include a photo as I did on 6/16.

We were going to take a day trip to Cosco, which is an hour away, but decided to delay it for a later time because the air condition has to get fixed in the car first.

It is finally getting hot outside which is very good for the garden. The pumpkin plant has a tiny gumball size pumpkin on it. I’ll make pumpkin casserole when they are ready. You clean out the pumpkin and stuff it with rice and cooked hamburger,onions and spices. This will be the first year that my pumpkins came up so early.

Went an hour away to Cosco today since we now have a Cosco card (after 5 years of not having one). I got a 1 ft stack of these paper trays to play restaurant at home. I love these little paper food trays. Makes me think of my kitchen as a deli!

I made homemade ravioli yesterday and it turned out delicious. Watched some u tube videos of people making it before I tried it. I love to use the hen’s eggs when I make homemade things. Used about 6 eggs. The filling was ground up seasoned cooked hamburger, artichokes, and strawberry spinach.
We went strawberry picking today and have a lot of freezing to do. I’d like to try strawberry jam this year since I’ve never made it although I have made plum butter. It smells like strawberries in the kitchen with two big boxes on the counter. For lunch we had crackers, cheese and strawberries.
