There is much to be thankful for. We’re especially thankful for each other and time spent with friends.
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner out with friends Thursday evening, to kick off our 4 day weekend. We celebrated three birthdays. The hubs, mine and our friend Jules. I call my one friend Julie “Jules”. But it was quite comical as we couples had two Julie’s in the group. The couples kept calling the other Julie “The Other Julie”.
The hubs insists we celebrate my birthday all weekend. So he’s treating me to another birthday dinner and dessert tonight.
Thankful for the book club girls – Mid week, we gathered, we visited over coffee, lemon cake and fruit, we discussed around 20 questions our amazing moderator (Sue) put together (our book – The Last Aloha by Gaellen Quinn), we had lunch and spent the early afternoon visiting…What a great day and visit. Love these ladies! Wish I had all of us in the shot.
I needed a nap (that afternoon) to refresh, before spending the evening hours with the hubs.
Vegetable garden – Our garden is producing some really exciting things these days. Exciting things! Like tomatoes…
Our little cherry tomatoes flourish…
Backyard Progress – Remember where I left off the last time? Here’s an image to remind you.
And this image is hot off the press, early this morning.
We hope this is all a memory very soon.
It truly is worth the mess in order to make progress. We’re hopeful to have this part of the project wrapped up by next weekend.
A view from the other side – We’ve given several vegetable plants away this week. We were hoping to get rid of a lot more. Now we’re trying to figure out what to do with all the leftovers…
In other news, we’re enjoying our jacaranda tree in “almost” full purple bloom. As is the oleander tree in pretty white bloom. We certainly enjoy the punch of color.
Now to enjoy the next couple of days with the hubs…Feeling blessed this Memorial Day weekend…And remembering those who gave all…
Blessings – Debbie
