Another week....

Another Friday, and another week in June is behind us. Have you had a good week?

As you may remember, The Husband is fond of playing golf. Last week-end's activities included dinner on Friday evening to which wives were invited.

We started off with my favorites....shrimp and buffalo chicken dip!

With views like this, is there any question why he enjoys playing at this course?

A long-time friend and co-worker made the decision to retire at the end of this school year.  Her family hosted a party in her honor, and we were invited.


Two other horses were in the barn, but this one came over to the fence to greet us.  Other entertainment was watching this soar into the sky....

It was fun watching this drone!  We were told it was also taking our picture as it hovered over us!

Why is it that so much of what I think about centers on food? 😋

A chocolate chip pumpkin muffin, made more special by serving on a doily....

My favorite Asiago cheese bagel from Panera with coffee from a Pioneer Woman cup (a birthday gift from Mucho Mom)....

A banana split for breakfast....topped with Stonyfield nonfat yogurt, sprinkled with Love Crunch granola, a new discovery a few weeks ago!  Love it!!

There have been some walks outside....

Looking down our street...

The sky at sunset
Also, a trip to a favorite shop that specializes in previously loved merchandise....

Though not antique, this set of china definitely caught my eye!  When most my age are down-sizing, this came home with me!  I have even been able to find a place for it!


There are reports that this show will be broadcast tonight!  It is listed on our PBS schedule here, so this is a reminder!  Be sure to remember to watch!  It has been a favorite here!

The week-end is ahead of us!  I hope you have something planned that is relaxing and restorative!  Enjoy!

The second Friday in June....

Wow! Is this the second Friday in June already?!?!?  How does time pass so quickly?  Perhaps when one is busy, time seems to fly!

So - what has been going on with us?  Well, Munchomom and family came for a visit last week-end.  We worked in a trip to the zoo while they were here.  It had been quite a long time since I had been to the zoo, and I was very impressed with all the changes and improvements!

For instance, we were able to approach this beautiful creature with glass between us....

He was cooling off on the brick surrounding a pool of water.  The enclosure allows for plenty of room to roam about with large grassy areas.

We were glad to be able to attend the Bird Show where we saw this gorgeous bird....

Aren't those lovely colors? 

Other activity during the week included a performance by the women's chorus, after which we joined in a nearby restaurant for a late lunch.  I enjoyed a salad....

.....while a friend sitting nearby opted for the brisket....

Doesn't that look absolutely delicious?!?!? Spinach Maria is always a great choice!

So - on this Friday, I decided to begin the day with this tasty choice....

This is an instant coffee drink by Fireside Coffee - Butter Rum.  Delicious already, but made even better by drinking it from one of the new Susan Branch cups!  This is one of three.....

....and here are the other two.  They are my most recent Susan Branch products.



Even pretty when turned upside down - when there is nothing in them, of course.😊

I added a favorite breakfast food with that Butter Rum coffee....

Avocado Toast using Dave's Killer Bread, this one with 70 calories per slice!

Well, now that I have Friday off to a good start, it's time to begin to think about the week-end.  I hope there is some time for relaxation and restoration awaiting you.

China - Strawberries and Cream, Villeroy and Boch, now discontinued.
