High water!

| 1 Comment

I closed my cottage today and then went to Glen Orchard to see how things were. The water is high and the floating dock was not even touch the shore (Dad said he had pulled it up even more so the water is even higher!) here's a pic of what I saw -- notice the end of the canoe is even in the water:


So tied off the dock as best I could...couldn't move it too far onto shore cuz there ain't much shore. And then I had to get the canoe out of the water...it's a heavy beast so I couldn't move it up to the cottage alone. if you click on the picture below, you can see a movie of how I moved it up but I'm not comfortable with how it's sitting:


Anyway, I did my best. They had 3 mice, I had 2 and a rogue paw in a runaway trap!

Recipe corner


Hey kids!!! Now that we've all feasted on the usual (turkey, smashed potatoes, broccoli casserole, and special dessert), I got to thinking. Wouldn't it be great if there was a place where we could all share those wonderful recipes?!
Then it hit me! ThorntonPages! And what if we had a web wizard who could organize them into a recipe book format? Well, maybe!
So, to start things off, here's a favourine recipe of the Wray branch of the family tree, Banana Muffins!

Best Ever Banana Muffins

3 large bananas
3/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup melted butter (margarine)
1/2 to 1 cup chocolate chips (optional- HA)

Mash bananas. Add sugar and slightly beaten egg.

Add the melted margarine. (If the bananas are quite mushy, you don't even
need this!)

Add the dry ingredients. Mix lightly, just until damp (not smooth!!), spoon
into greased muffin tins, OR muffin tins that have been lined with those
cupcake paper thingies, and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.


Summer pics (finally!)

Well, due to huge demand this past weekend, I finally crunched a bunch of summer pictures...from the party and stuff. Now I didn't do anything fancy, just put them all in a folder because I'm tired.


Anyway, click here to see 'em... there's a folder in the folder that are the party pics.

Have fun.

Another holiday, eh?


So, another holiday weekend coming up, and arriving early, no less. And where am I? Stuck in the Pdot. So while you're all enjoying your lamb dinner, I hope you'll think of me and my sumptuous meal of kraft dinner, french fries, and oh boy, canned peaches. You owe me some Broccoli casserole, dagnabbit!
