Sugar-Free SOUR Lime Pops

 Sugar-Free SOUR Lime Pops :: Blooming on Bainbridge
Hello there!
I've missed you!
If I give 10 good reasons why I've been too busy to blog will you forgive me for not blogging in over a month?
I hope so.

Here goes:
I've been training hard at Strength Lab growing strong and gettin' my sparkle back.

Melony (my sister) and the kids came to visit from Alabama for Spring Break! We went skiing
at Crystal for several days, hung out on Bainbridge Island and "did Seattle" big time!

Salisbury Woodworking here on Bainbridge Island has been busy in the house installing the stair balusters we designed together. Salisbury is the real deal!

Aurora Florialis has been busy seeding the yard with new grass & doing a bit of landscaping to get us ready for spending the summer outdoors. I'll share pictures soon!

Let's see. What else?
Speaking of the yard. We've been busy in the yard. You know. Yard work. ;)

Oh! I've been busy sewing, getting ready to open Bags by Bloom! Soon! Promise!

Did I mention I've been training hard?

I've basically cut all gluten from my diet. Transitioning to a gluten-free lifestyle is time consuming. More on going gluten-free later.

Whenever it's sunny the furballs and I are out walking & hiking & enjoying the SUN!

Last but certainly not least; I've been enjoying our new home. Opening the Dutch doors when it's sunny. Prepping healthy food in the new kitchen. Soaking in bubbles and epsom salt in the soaker tub. Basking in the sun & listening to the eagles chirping in the adirondack chairs by the fire pit. Lounging on the 10 foot daybed/window seat in the kitchen. Just enjoying this gorgeous place we now call home.

That's what I've been doing.
What have you been up to?
I miss you.
I really do.
I miss this blog.
So let's talk about POPSICLES.
How much do you love POPSICLES!!!
Sweet, SOUR, salty lime popsicles.
And I do mean sour.
Better get ready to PUCKER-Up!
Cause these babies are SOUR!
