Blissful Mid October

1. I can celebrate. Yahoo! I've finished a very special order for a wedding, received payment and sent three sets in the mail to the bride. Eye popping jewelry:

2. I dance a bit here and there along with all of the stars on Dancing with the Stars. I have my list going and I vote for my favorites.  This is one of the best seasons ever but I must admit Bristol Palin just does not have the star pizzaz that the rest of the stars have. She's an incredibly beautiful girl but I can out dance her and let's face it - she is not a star but has a famous mother.

3.  My friend sent me an email just jam packed full of photos of Butchart Gardens on Victoria Island, BC. She and I visited those gardens in 2007. It brought back very special memories of our trip.

Such a variety of colors - it looks like wonder land but it is as real as the stars in our heavens.

4.  My friend from Nevada sent me this follow the sheep photo. I took a second look and a third and I know that I've been there in that very spot in Ireland - only there were no sheep on the path. The paved path meanders down to the ocean.

5.  I tried a recipe for a key lime pie which had a bit of gelatin in it so it would set up nice.  I never did care for it. I had this wonderfully bright creative idea on  to make a coconut key lime pie.  After searching the internet for a recipe - finding dozens of recipes for that pie - I settled one on that have only five eggs in it and 1 cup of coconut milk.  

I gave this delectable key lime pie a 10. Creamy with every bite, just a hint of the coconut and just a hint of lime, and home made whip cream with about a tablespoon of lime juice made this pie heavenly.
I thought I would link up with Liv Lane's Little Bliss List today but it is not there.

I don't get it about the sheep. (amazing photo, by the way!)So the sheep are walking up the road, now down toward the sea. But how did they get there in the first place? Did they just hop off a boat??

The jewelry is just beautiful!!!
