After The Rain

Torrential rains and now I have never viewed a sky so blue
Jamie and my Amelia an early morning visit, off to have breakfast and back home.
Oh they were enjoyed so much.  Callie loves company...
What a show flowers are presenting

Girls have left, friend arrived with small slice of her Zucchini bread with blueberries.
I always use crushed pineapple and walnuts - will have to try this, also a small slice of Swiss Chard Quiche and a slice of fresh Peach pie - so good and I called to see how she made this, different.
Said she always used the jello flavor of the fruit, mixed thick.   Want to try this with fruit.
Miss cooking and baking but still not up to the getting everything out on counter :(

So lunch time and on a bed of mixed greens 1/2 slice of a bean and corn burger, topped with cheese,
tomato and avocado.   Just picked a few herbs, mint for my tea and basil and chives to add to salad
 my day has ended it started early - like 5:00 with me using blower on new drive and dead heading lilies :)

All would be perfect in this beautiful world
if their was no pain and balance problem.  Walking about 6 times a day on this small portion of
drive now finished.   Love it....

Earlier in the week a special open house with new doctor at a new coffee shop in this small town.
I tried Cuban with some kind of froth on top - will have to check it out more thoroughly.

Thanks to a special friend who picked me up and took me :)

A lot of kindness in my world....

Blue skies, colorful flowers, relatives, adventures, and much kindness...
So much to be thankful for!

but severe painful night.

Judy said...

I can hear happy in your "voice"!
I'll bet Callie isn't the only one who likes visitors!
So glad you are able to walk about--walking is so good for us.

Lovely photos. I mailed you the special book today. Please study the postmark and have a good laugh.

Glad your driveway is working out m'dear.

Wonderful to hear of all the small kindnesses you are receiving. Walking your small portion of drive 6 times a day is quite an accomplishment. Pain is a constant companion to many of us these days but one must "keep on" as they say.
