An early summer, perhaps & a recipe.

It's so hot and sunny these days. Sometimes you have to stop and remember that it is still Spring until June 21st. Sue from  Zaza's Corner, and I are back to our 5km walks and it feels so good.
And I am busy with cat-sitting this week. I'm here, there and everywhere. I am driving every which way and loving all these gorgeous back country roads.

I was looking through my camera and discovered a recipe I had photographed last Fall.
Another yummy loaf cake.
Blueberry loaf cake, I'll have you know. 
So, yesterday I baked it and it looks like a keeper.
And, it tastes like a keeper, too.
I really loaded it with blueberries.

This will be good with coffee or tea so that means you can have it for breakfast.
I know I will.
Did I ever show you the bread board that slides out of my step-back cupboard? Pretty cute, huh!

It's another glorious day today. Off to kitty-sit.
I have 8 kitties to care for and 2 you haven't met yet.
The camera is packed. :)

At home, with the smell of blueberry loaf lingering in the house, Sierra has decided to take a 'me day' and do some loafing herself.
She's very good at that.

hugs, Deb


  1. Sierra looks quite contemplative.
