Lunch With My Best Friend

I went out to lunch with my son yesterday, and I always have a fun time whenever we get together.

 
He makes me laugh and let's me be me, faults and all, without judging or criticizing.  He is one of a kind.


He is like a gentle brook flowing free,


and strong and robust at the same time.


When he was a little boy, I gave him some money to buy something at one of the neighborhood garage sales.  He came home with a figurine of a cottage and said it was for me.  I wonder if he knows I kept it all these years?


Is there someone in your life that lets you be you, and who makes your day a little bit brighter just by being in it?

Weekend Drives

Driving through the
town of Folsom,
I took these pictures
that caught my
eye.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Does anyone else
think that
these are the most
unusual and
remarkable birds?
 
 
 
 
Have a great week.

Girlfriends Make Me Laugh

I met three of my girlfriends that I went to high school with today for lunch.  We all had a great time eating, catching up, and laughing at old times.


My best friend is visiting from out of state, and all of us girls really miss her.  I hope she moves back to California some day.  I met her last weekend with the husbands included, and in this picture we were laughing over something funny that was said.

me on the right.

She bought me a gift for my birthday, which is in May, but she won't be here at the time, so she gave it to me now.  I loved it, and know the perfect place for it in my home.



I hope to get together with my friends again soon.   We have been through a lot together, and have known each other for many years.  We will continue to remain friends through the years, and hopefully grow old together.

A Tea With A Good Cause

I saw this tea
at the store, and
just had to
buy some.
They support the
International Fund for
Animal Welfare.
The tea tastes
good, and you'll see
why I couldn't
resist buying it.
 
 
Each packet is
individually wrapped
with a tag of
a red rose.
 
 
My new red cup
from Anthropologie.
 
 
Speaking of red...
who said bunnies
have to be in
pastel colors?

What A Wonderful World

When my father passed away, our family, along with the support of many good people, set up a charitable fund in his name to provide clothes for low-income children in the school district.  This last weekend, I went to the fundraiser dinner that helps raise money for the shopping that happens twice a year for these deserving kids.  The night was fun, and it is our special community which makes it the wonderful event that it is.

This is my favorite song, and I chose this version because it is sung by children.

 
Let us all have the heart of a child.
