Valentine Cookies

Here are a couple of cookies I just finished making.   My Goodness these are a lot of work!  I found a tutorial for these on Ali Bee's blog.  This was just a little something different to do and was a lot of fun!   

The next 3 pictures I took in the driveway.   I was in such a hurry to get to town to deliver them that I forgot to take pictures, so I just grabbed my camera and laid them out on the drive right quick and snapped a few pics.  Kind of interesting. 

I didn't think it would be such a big deal to decorate these strawberries. It didn't really look like a whole heck of a lot of them.   Ha, should have looked at the clock before I started these.  I felt like time was going in slow motion trying to get these done.  I actually had fun decorating them though.  I don't know why I was so intrigued by putting on the chocolate icing.

New Blog Title and Blueberries

I'm thinking about changing the name of my blog.  My husband thinks my title is way too long, and I think he's probably right.  I've changed it to "The Bluebonnet Patch" (for now).  I'm really not creative when it comes to things like titles. I have a few blueberry bushes I planted last spring and love any of my cookies that have bluebonnets on them, so I saw it fitting to change it to something with Blueberry in the title. 

Here's a picture of my HUGE harvest from last year. Not exactly enough to put up in the freezer or make jelly!  I picked about a handful every day for about 2 weeks last summer.  I was really surprised I picked as many as I did.  This year I picked about two pints.  I am so surprised that they did as well as they did last summer because of the dought.   It seems like the hotter it gets, the sweeter the blueberries.  If it were not so darn hard to plant the silly things I would have a few acres of them.  Our soil is not suitable, acid enough, for blueberries so we (or should I say my husband) has to dig a huge hole and we have to replace the dirt with peat moss and Azalea potting soil.  That reminds me, I need to get some more Azalea dirt and spread it around the blueberry plants this week so it can work down in to the soil.
