Found some Pimm’s! The last thing I wanted to do was drive up to Virginia looking for it so I did some google-ing and made some more phone calls and I finally found it much closer to home. Shame on the guy in the Battleground store for telling me “nobody in Greensboro carries it.” For anybody living in Greensboro, you can find Pimm’s No. 1 at the ABC Store on Market Street in the Marshalls and Food Lion shopping center.
So, we brought home the Pimm’s and made up a pitcher from a recipe found online. It really is like a sangria. A British Sangria. The recipe called for a sliced up cucumber which I thought was unusual and I thought I would love. But really, not so much. Husband hated it! Next batch I made will be sans cukes!
The deer have finally found my garden and seem to come while we are sleeping and select something different each night to feast on. Last night they ate almost all of my Swiss chard. And trampled two tomato plants. :(
It’s been so hot and humid that I just can’t make myself go out and tend the garden. It’s starting to look like a deer-chewed jungle. And the evil Bermuda grass is invading big time.
I went to a party last week and the hostess served individual cups of dip with crudites/sliced veggies. It looked so cute and that way everybody was allowed to double dip!
I’ve taken to adding 2 shakes of cinnamon to the filter basket when making my coffee. It adds just enough cinnamon for me to know it’s there and I hear cinnamon is good for you. Even better.
Progress on my braces is good. The Ortho said I was heading into the “final detailing stage” and put stainless steel wires on both the top and bottom. My teeth are very tender right now. But, I can see my new smile emerging!
