My Early Morning

As day breaks
this sunflower just keeps adding blooms
and a new one appears this morning
a lot of seeds were sown, some different from a special person and sure a disappointment that more did not make it.

Noticed 4 o' clock's bloom at dawn and I thought that meant they would bloom at 4:00
in the afternoon.  Either their timing
is confused or mine.  I thought I was just given a deep pink and yellow bloom and pleased this
morning to see a white bloom.
Chives look great
and were an addition to Buttermilk Dressing made early this morning.
Recipe----1 cup of buttermilk
                 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
                 1 tsp white wine vinegar
                 1/4 tsp granulated garlic
                  1/4 tsp of salt and pepper
                  2 heaping tbsp of fresh chopped chives

Breakfast and then on to early morning dental appointment in city between my home and Nashville.
Oh my, dry mouth Sjogrens is sure doing a number on the mouth of a woman who always had
perfect teeth.

Then before home a stop at an upscale grocery not in my small town "Public's".   They are
so accommodating and cut me a small section of the BokChoy and also gave me very small piece
of what was in a package with 3 of the best steak you can by and I only wanted 1 . Do not eat meat often but tonight it will go with a baked potato and salad.
  They were also so nice to cut off a small number of slices of Boar's Head luncheon meat
of turkey and pastrami (an idea I received from a blogger friend in Michigan, named Judy.)

So good to be home
and wonder
why am I posting
before I have my lunch.
I guess it is habit and also my children will know how I spent my morning....

YUM!! Squirrels have brought down all my sunflowers. I will write a post on that tomorrow.

Your sunflowers are so pretty...especially the "fuzzy" one in the last picture.
Enjoy your steak dinner tonight. Sounds delicious.
Have a nice evening...Balisha

It seems to me that sunflowers cheer up a place like nothing else can. And, no matter what time of day 4 o'clocks bloom, they are so pretty. Reading about your steak dinner has made me quite hungry, so...
