Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends,
So how are you??? Did you have
a nice weekend??
I am doing well...........Was happy to see
my friends above, they dropped by yesterday
morning, haven't seen them in awhile, but they
remember we have fed them before, and when
the saw me looking out the window here they
came lickedy split. Unfortunately, for them I
had seen Alfred Hitchcock's "the Birds" when
I was a kid, and it had a lasting impression on
me, so I wasn't about to go out there with 4
birds as big as I am by myself.
Call me Chicken!!
I call it wisdom.............lol
Just in case you don't know what they are,
they are called "Sand Hill Cranes" and we have had
some come by that are taller than us.These are
probably almost as tall as me, and I am 5'6",
or at least I was the last time I measured,
might have lost an inch or 2 by now!! lol
I call them lawn aerators! lol
In this picture and the one before they were right
outside my window.....snacking away!!
a good weekend, the highlight was Friday, cause
I got to spend the whole day with my girl, doing
sort of an early birthday celebration. We shopped
all day, then went out to Carrabbas with our
hubbies. I think Carrabbas has the best Italian
food, if you have ever been there, have you had
the "Tagliarini Picchu pacchiu"?? Oh my heavens,
that stuff is so good, It is pasta with fresh roma
tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil. Gratefully,
some friends told us about it, and we have been
getting it every since. You can get it with chicken
or shrimp or meatballs, we usually get the meat
balls ourselves, tried the chicken and didn't like
it as well.
Then we went back to their house. Hubbies put
up a chandelier they got on Craigs list, she and
Jerry are so resourceful, love that!
and she and I did a lil decorating. We made a
centerpiece for her dining room table with
large philodendron leaves, simple, yet
stately and beautiful! Wish I had taken a
picture...and duh, I had my camera!
Saturday we attended a Memorial Service
for one of my old students from when I was
a youth leader probably 15 years or so ago.
He was only 31 years old. Very Sad!
but I have great memories of what a sweet
and respectful young man he was..........
The Memorial Service was about as good as
that type of thing could be..........Simply a
miracle really......how the Lord holds his
children up during a time like that!
His father spoke at the service, and did
an amazing job..........course, it was clearly
the spirit of God speaking thru him.
They will certainly continue to be in our
prayers for a long time ........................
After the service we ran to Publix to
pick up a few things, then mowed the
yard later and watched a fun and silly
movie called "Cinnamon" about a lil
dog who didn't like her Mommies boy
friend. Quite cute, and light hearted,
just what I needed after the morning.
Sunday hubby taught Sunday School again
and after church we went to Taco Bell and
they have a new Rice bowl dish, Called
"Cantina Bowl", it was delicious,
and can't wait to have it again, but you
must like guacamole. They also have a
Cantina wrap which I can't wait to try
either. This dish was made up by a
celebrity chef. and sure tastes like it too!
Just love that they have this new dish,
as we used to love their rice bowls then
they took them off the menu. So that
made me happy!
Then we went to the yomii frozen yogurt
place, and I had cake batter and Taro
flavor yogurt this time.
Both were scrumptious and it was so
refreshing in the heat!
The rest of the day was our usual.
Yesterday just did some deep cleaning in
the kitchen and started making plans for
Dee's family birthday dinner this coming
Sunday. Her birthday isn't really till this
Friday the 17th. Worked on some cards,
and made din din and that was about it.
Was gonna share a parfait with you, but
this is so long guess I will share it another
Hugs and Blessings,
