Special Day But Pleased To Be Home

Early morning
quick breakfast
yogurt, banana, blueberries, strawberry, slice of peach and a sprinkling
of walnuts, flax seeds, 2 cups of green tea, special bread with cherry jam and a handful
of supplements.

Load car with camera, extra clothes, shoes, water, protein drink and bar.
Guess I am ready to head for the big city to be with my little girls.
Leaving very early and hope to miss heavy traffic.
Lunch at a special cafe which I like and there is not much out there I like in restaurant food.
Wonderful lemon artichoke soup, their chicken salad is the best I have ever tasted.  Has
pecans and cranberries in it and a little celery.  Their lemonade is prepared with a shaving of vanilla bean and seems to cut the tartness of the taste.   Hummingbird cake to die for.   I took my cooler with me and brought home soup and salad for this evening and also 1/2 a cake to put in freezer.
Especially since I do not bake much :)
I like to have  something sweet on hand if someone drops in and this will be good with tea.
My girls are growing up so fast and the youngest is missing some front teeth.
I was entertained with music and enjoyed this special day so very much.
They need to tell their mom that the clock is once again chiming that I gave to her years ago.
Think you just need to wind it......

What a lovely day you had. Your breakfast with supplements started your day off just right and everything else only added to the goodness of the day.

I love that photo of you with your granddaughter.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

It always seems like a "chore" to get ready to drive and get to the place we want to be. The hours spent there are wonderful..then the chore of driving all the way home when we are tired. Grandchildren will remember these times though and we must do them while we still can. I am always so glad to get back home to the comfort of my chair and the quietness of my wee home. Our daughter's are so busy they forget even to wind a clock :-)
