Sun Tea recipe

This works great on a sunny day.


And you save energy by letting the sun do the work.

Too bad for me that clouds rolled in soon after I set out my half gallon of water and tea bags. It took all day to change the liquid into tea.

And if clouds roll into your sky, too, you can always bring it inside and heat it up in the microwave. Whatever, the tea won’t go to waste.

Until next time, that’s all there is from Sunnybook Farm.

A little backyard gardening

I have numerous pairs of gardening gloves hidden around the farm. Too bad I forget to use them.

At least my hands are washable. It’s the gunk under my fingernails that is so tough to get clean.

Pocket treasures

It’s time to wash winter coats and put them away for the season.

Before the coats go into the washer, pockets have to be searched and emptied.

A reminder of Sunny was found in all my winter coat pockets. Sunny is gone but never forgotten.

So what’s in your pocket? Dog or cat treats or cookies for your children?

If I carried cat treats, my feline pets wouldn’t leave me alone.

Car-E Vs. Barn-E

To start their day, my cats basked in the morning sun. Their moment of calm soon changed and turned into a wrestling match.

After running away, Barn-E hid behind my feet.

Car-E eventually stretched out in the sun again.

I had to share this with you this morning. I captured this video after writing my weekly column about sending Sunny over the rainbow bridge. These two are helping bring sunshine back into my life.

New flower watering bottle

If you are tired of getting wet when watering a hanging basket, this might be for you.

(The sounds in the background of this video are from Car-E and Barn-E as they wrestle around my kitchen.)

The cats and my kitchen survived the roughhousing.

The cost for the watering bottle was $15.99, so it wasn’t too cheap. Here’s the Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CH2XNMP/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you get a cheaper one, great.
