Hello! Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday! Popping in to let you know Mr. Ken will be heading out on an adventure soon. I won't be blogging for a bit but will post as soon as I can about our adventure. In other news I'd like to WELCOME my new follower Pam. It's nice to have you here at Dreaming!
I had two requests for the Pickle recipe:
Refrigerator Pickles 3 nice size cucumbers, peeled and sliced 1 C sugar or Splenda 1/2 C vinegar 1 C water Mix together the sugar with the liquid ingredients (well) Add cucumbers, mix together Seal and put in the fridge- 2 hrs That's it! Enjoy! I have made these for several years and have changed things up . This year I added approx. 1/4-1/2 tsp of dried dill to them. Of course you could use fresh. I have added (other times) Red pepper flakes Cracked pepper Onions It is a very versatile recipe. See you when we return ! ~Keep on Dreaming~
Hello everyone,! I am happy and proud to say that TOMORROW is my 9th Blogversary! Still plugging away. I am sooooooo thankful for those of you who still come by for a visit!
Mr. Ken and I went to a local Farmer's Market and they had these sculptures in the green space, well you know us we couldn't resist goofing around before purchasing our goodies.
We have had some beautiful sunsets lately. I captured this one coming out of a store.
My friend Nancy and I went to a Scrap- book Expo, don't do much with my stuff but I do use the paper and stickers at school. The paper makes much nicer letters for bulletin boards than plain construction paper.
We put our names in for some drawings AND we both one. Pics above and below are the goodies I won very excited!
Took Mr. Ken on a country adventure last Friday. Didn't tell him where we were going OR most importantly what we were going to see. Thankfully GPS got us there. I don't always trust it though.
A friend had posted on Facebook some pics she had taken of her daughter here and loving Sunflowers as I do I had to go see them. So when Mr. Ken got home off we went. Lot's of fun!
This morning I made these for Mr. He loves the Refrigerator Pickles on the right and as an experiment I tried a version of the same recipe with fresh carrots. Very early on in blogging, I got the recipe for the Refrigerator Pickles from a blog friend and have made them every summer since. It is sooooo easy to make and does not require the "canning process." plus they are never around very long. ;) If you want the recipe let me know. I will pop in briefly Wednesday with more news, stay tuned. ~Keep on Dreaming~

Hello! Hope everyone had a great holiday. Ours was fun as you will see farther down. One more reference to the garage sale. Mr. Ken in his stylish blue ensemble. *SOLD* A friend bought this one.
Next was the garden hat.
I decided to keep this after all.
There is on more hat, it dropped out :( of my post, I'll post it next time, one you won't want to miss!
My bargain bag! 2 bucks, yes I said 2 bucks! We have a store here in Kansas City that is a Reuse, recycle and restore kinda place. They receive donations from various companies and the community. This was from a donation from Charming Charlies. A jewery, bag and scarf store. Love it. Parade Highlights:
Driving with the big boys. Spontaneous trip to see fireworks: Drove to the local hospital parking lot, able to grab a parking spot though is was a happen' place and enjoyed from a far and traffic.
A peek and our 4th decorations. It came so fast my output was a bit minimal.
Oops excuse the ear muffs. :)
Hope your summer has been nice. Still fighting the heat as I'm sure you are. It is supposed to cool down this weekend! ~Keep on Dreaming~
Well, well it is July! Where did June go? Now that we are into summer and now July, I have a list for you for summer home maintenance. 1 Check your detectors. (smoke and carbon monoxide) 2 Check your air conditioners and ceiling fans. 3 Clean your grills. 4 Clean your porch and deck (s) check for any repairs needed to each. 5 Wash windows in and out. Yuck! 6 Check your hoses and faucets for leaks. 7 Clean up lawns and flower pots. For us we need to check our gutters for junk. It has been so hot here we haven't done any mowing which we need to do plus it has rained so much. Wednesday's post will be on Thursday due to the holiday. Happy 4th to you and your family! ~Keep on Dreaming~
I am Missouri born and bred but Kansas wed. Mr. Ken and I have been married for 20+ years! Time flies when you are having fun.
My job takes me back to elementary school where I work primarily with students with Autism and in the summer I play! During my playtime, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, crafting, cooking, reading, gardening and blogging to name a few. I also enjoy watching football both pro and college. Go TIGERS!
