White sails fly by
Life can be lived lightly
Under our deep blue sky

Kathe's Apricot Pie baked June 25, 2013

We just spent a few precious days with dear friends

Cooking together while laughing and then
eating wonderful meals together is a priceless gift.

Have a great week!!


  1. My parents were tremendous fans of apricot pie, and they've become very hard to find. I wish you could mail me one.

  2. Delicious looking treats, with wonderful poetic accompaniment! Love the fruity treats of summer.

  3. oh my...can i get an invite for dinner...or at least dessert?

  4. Alex- no pie left over but I am making a Peach Tart tomorrow- come on over!
    Stephen- would love to mail you an Apricot Pie!
    Mary- thanks and isn't summer full of fruity treats!

  5. Brian- you bet- come on over- the door is always open!

  6. I want some of that pie, under a deep blue sky.

  7. Why is it that's I'm hungry for pie. Looks fabulous.

    Have a terrific day. Big hug. ☺

  8. Delicious pictures (even of the ships, it looks delightful to go sailing like that), and fun rhymes to go with them!

  9. I so agree ... many of the most wonderful memories I have are of picnics, dinners, brunches. Glad you got to visit friends.

  10. Yum! Sounds and looks like a good time was had by all!

  11. Pie and Icecream.
    Or just pie...great any time

  12. I think this is the first time an M.M.P.P. response made me hungry!

    Thanks for playing, Kathe!

  13. Oh lord I just had a sugar attack looking at those pie pictures. I love me some pie :)

  14. I want some of that pie! :)

  15. Kathe, I Love Pie!! You and your friends made incredible works of art--I'm very impressed; wonderful poem and what treasured memories :-)

  16. I like how the group of poems work together...

  17. I am taking the time this morning to get caught up with my blog reading and now I might have to stop and back a pie. Really those pies and that strawberry tart have me salivating. There isn't much better than home baked pies.

  18. I enjoy short poetry and seeing what people can put in just a few words. Nice job here.
