Chicken Scratch 6/30/16~ Yay Summer & Basil Lemonade

Yes, I went to the thrift shop again...I found some sweet linens and spent about $5....Doesn't take much to make this girl happy. I'd rather hunt for treasures than go shopping for new clothes. lol.... Our Summer thus far has been pretty quiet. Our girl has been getting together with friends and saying her goodbyes before we head out on our new adventure. Yup!!! Things are looking up around here. Saying good riddens to this place won't be a problem for me. There are just too many bad memories here. I can't wait to hit the road with my peeps in just a matter of a few weeks and never have to turn back. It is so exciting!!! We are beginning a brand new beautiful chapter of our lives and this one's a good one! Can't wait to share with y'all soon. 

I wanted to leave you with this recipe...It calls for limes but I had to use lemons instead...Which was still very delicious. If you like basil...You will really enjoy this refreshing lemonade! It may be a little quiet here, but don't worry I will be back periodically as we are preparing for a very BIG move. I am also putting bartering on the back burner for now as well. But look look what I recently received! Two bags of the most delightful homemade teas, I ever did smell in my life. Can't wait for some real sweater weather to enjoy this glorious tea in...
Where we are going will be real sweater weather indeed! Can't wait!!!!

Lastly, I received this lovely handmade stained glass cross from a fellow Farmgirl Sister! My package to her is so late.....She has been so sweet and cooperative with me as we have been going through our transition...That is what I love about my farmgirl community...
These ladies are precious and so patient. It will be such an honor to hang this cross in our new home.

I realize this post is a complete random chicken scratch of a mess...
Bare with me. I'll be back soon!!!
