Friends, it’s summertime, which means our windows and doors are open, and we’re welcoming in the fresh mountain air. Our home is already buzzing with people for the summer, and lots of good food (like this Blueberry Snickerdoodle Summer Cobbler — watch the video below!)

Our kids are home, friends are scheduled to visit, and we’ll be hitting the trails for hikes and mountain bike rides! Living in central Oregon has its advantages, and summertime is the sweet spot for our family.

It’s all about having on the right clothing for all seasons, and we’ve learned to not go anywhere without a light jacket. The evenings cool down oh so slightly and it’s just so lovely, as long as you have a jacket!

The slight breeze between the aspen trees, the smell of the pines, the deer emerging from the scrub brush, the river that runs between our property and the forest, every day I’m trying to get outside to enjoy it all. To some who’ve lived here for quite some time, this may all be ordinary. For us, it’s still new. In fact, every day can be ordinary if we allow it to be. My husband and I both work full time, and it’s easy to stick our noses in the computer and never come up for air. Purposely taking an ordinary day, and finding newness … suddenly you are filled with happiness, thankfulness, and joy!

“One’s destination is never a place, but rather a new way of looking at things.” Henry Miller

I also look around our home and see dust and pollen, so I’m continually dusting and looking more closely at the piano keys. ACK!

Secret Cleaning Solution

Secret Cleaning Solution: Here’s an easy and efficient way to get those grimy fingerprints and stains off your piano keys. Dip a soft cloth into a solution of 1/2 cup white vinegar mixed in 2 cups water, squeeze it out until there are no drips, then gently wipe off each key.

Beyond nature’s beauty and having the house clean, it’s the people in our lives that really feed us, and bring contentment.

So when people show up this summer, I’m ready!

One of my new favorite desserts to serve is Blueberry Snickerdoodle Summer Cobbler. It’s hard to say no to a second serving, but of course we do. Served with a dab of cinnamon whipped cream, it’s fresh and lovely.

Prepare your snickerdoodle cookie dough ahead (you can even freeze, so you’re always prepared!)

Mix fresh blueberries with brown sugar (I recently discovered Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Sugar), salt, vanilla, and fresh lemon juice.

In a small pan, press half of the cookie dough batter to the bottom of the pan. Add the blueberries, then you know what to do with the remaining cookie dough.

Take a bite … right? No, I mean roll into small balls, placing on top of the blueberries.

Count the guests coming to dinner (making sure you have enough balls on top).

Bake and serve with a cinnamon-y sweet whipped cream!

Happy Summer, Friends!

  1. That sounds so good! I’ll have to give it a try. I love that quote.

  2. Good grief. Yum. The cinnamon repeating sounds especially good. Not sure  I’ll resist a second piece, haha ;-) And here in oklahoma we stopped opening our windows a few months ago. It won’t happen again until after Halloween, probably. I love our summertime so much, but once in a while a nice cool mountain day would be a welcome relief! Have a great weekend Sandy xoxo
