Blossoms, Bacon, Banana Crepes, and More

At the end of last week, I looked outside one afternoon and saw Sasha. She is our blue tick heeler that is usually on a leash in our back yard. She has a nice big area/long chain. I won’t go into all the reasons why it is necessary for her to be on a leash; it is not our preference but what is necessary. At any rate, when I looked out front, I saw her . . . this should not be.
blue tick heeler loose ~ Lifeofjoy.meShe must have been loose for a while because she drank most all of the cats’ water that was on the porch. This makes me think she did quite a bit of running around before arriving on the porch. She is a strong dog. If Sasha doesn’t want to go back to her area, she doesn’t. ;)

I baked some bacon last weekend. I had Sean put it on this platter. Keto Daily Bread ~ Lifeofjoy.meWe thought it was quite humorous, considering we don’t eat regular bread any more and eat quite a lot of bacon. :D


This is the breakfast Tiffany and I had yesterday. It is really delicious banana crepes with chocolate sauce. Yummo!!! (THM Cookbook pg 267)

THM Chocolate Monkey Crepes ~ Lifeofjoy.meI’m not even a fan of yogurt, which is the filling in these yummy things, along with some slices of banana. It was a yummy and filling meal.


I noticed that my narcissus flowers bloomed this week too.

Narcissus 2018 ~ Lifeofjoy.meI don’t recall having ones with the dark orange trumpet in years passed. I really like them but I do prefer the longer trumpets to these shorter ones.

My Bradford Pear trees are blooming nicely as well.

Bradford Pear Tree ~ Lifeofjoy.meThe peach tree is blossoming too! I’m so excited! There are no where as many blossoms as last year but we ended up with nary a peach because of a late frost or two. But that is actually okay because it seems I’ve heard that you should actually pluck the first blossoms to enable the tree to focus on its roots instead of putting out fruit. So I’m thinking that the few blossoms we have is good; it’s producing what it can provide without sacrifice.

Peach blossoms ~ Lifeofjoy.meThese are still very new and we saw some tiny buds still to open. I’m hopeful for some good peaches this year.

Then we saw the plum trees are blossoming too.

Plum blossoms ~ Lifeofjoy.meThis little tree, that is about four years old, is a slow grower. :D But it has LOTS of blossoms on it’s little twigs. We have another one that is younger but much larger and it too has blossoms, although not as concentrated as these. :D

We had a good visit with my sister and her girls this week too. It is always nice to get to spend some time talking with her about what is going on in her life and hear about her homeschooling. I try to encourage her the best I can.


We have birthdays to celebrate this Sunday with my family. My baby sister and Sean’s birthdays are within two weeks of each other, so we will celebrate both this Sunday, which means I get to see Brian, Lauren, and Liam!!! Yay! My little grandson is not quite so little any more. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone. I’ll be making a chocolate cake for Sean and the rest of us sugar free THMers (Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle eaters).

Well, I’ve rambled enough for today.

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº
