Checking in...

No, I have not fallen off the edge of the earth and all is well here in the Powers household. It's just been a busy and lazy few days. Much of what I've been up to has been exciting to me, but so boring to blog about: basically filing, organizing and filing some more. I'm making great progress in getting everything into good order, but it doesn't make for exciting blog fodder.
Today though, something exciting happened while we were eating lunch outside. The male red-bellied woodpecker brought the baby to the feeder. And then a blackbird arrived with a baby and a wren with the family. It was a sweet moment and all happened at the same time! The bluebird babies have flown the nest and we missed the great moment!

And so life goes on! And life it good!

I hope all is very well with you and hope to make the blog rounds sometime soon again ... between filing and organizing and spending as much time outside as possible before the sweltering summer heat kicks in.

Oh, I did make Savannah Banana Pudding from the Moosewood Dessert Cookbook on Saturday and it was heavenly! Sometime soon I'll have to share the recipe with you... You'll love it!


  1. liebe Grüsse
    nun hab ich Hunger nach Savannah Banana Pudding!
    Elisabeth, die sich über Deine Blumen gefreut hat, sie sind schön die Bilder.

  2. Mmmm... that sounds like something from a child's book...Savannah Banana Pudding!
    LOVE your sunflowers and blue hydrangeas!
    You're right about the heat, it's Georgia, better be quick...it's coming!

  3. sounds like lazy puttering spring cleaning lovely lunch days. it's my favorite time of year, and when i read this post of yours, silke, i'm reminded why.


  4. Un gros bisou à vous... merci pour cette charmante publication.

  5. Ah, who says filing and organizing are not worth their own blog entry? :-)
    Love the blue hortensia, and the sunflowers!
    Enjoy your garden - and while you're at it, could you send some of your good weather our way?

  6. I can't wait to hear more about that recipe! sounds yummy! And you have been busy! The filing and organizing are just as important. They make room for your mind to open up with creativity!


  7. Sounds wonderful!
    I can't say I have been accomplishing all that you have, but a few days have been productive and I have enjoyed taking time to watch the bunnies in the yard.
    Did some upgrades on my computer and things seem to be working better....I would rather be cleaning than upgrading stuff...LOL!
    Have a beautiful day!


  8. That recipe sounds great. How do you stay so thin with all the wonderful things you cook?

  9. Ah, yes, life IS worth living! I am still attempting to organize and move into my office closet! Enjoy that beautiful weather of yours. We are officially HOT out here in the desert. **kisses** Deb

  10. Liebe Silke,
    ich sende dir liebe Grüße. Mache dir keinen Stress und genieße das schöne Wetter.
