A day full of blessings
Well this has been a real day of blessings.
I turned my phone on as I was having my breakfast
and a text came in immediately.
Would you like some apples and pears,
I can bring some down shortly.
So of course I said yes. I shared some with my daughter
and took some around to a friend who lives
in a retirement village. What she can't use she puts
in the hall for other residents to help themselves.
She also gave me a beautiful red rose with a wonderful scent.
They were heading away later in the day and thought it was
a shame for the rose not to be enjoyed by someone.
Lucky me :) The colour in the photo is pretty true.
Morning tea came around and my GKB came in with this offering.
We both had a laugh...and he didn't sing happy birthday.
Raspberry slice, yummy. He knows I like it.
We had just made scones for lunch and my youngest
daughter waltzed in. 'How's your day going?' she said,
and then in came my little mother and my other daughter.
I'd already received a parcel in the post today, from Japan.
How great was the timing in that?
The botanicals and exfoliater were from one daughter,
and the coral necklace came from Japan. They also had a
birthday cake with them, so lunch was scones and birthday cake
with tea and coffee. And good company of course. We did
have a healthy(ish) tea - filled baked potato.
Yummy again :)
When I delivered the apples and pears to my friend in the village she had just been given a box of bread and asked whether I wanted any, so of course I said yes, again. I took three loaves so I could give some to my daughters as well as keep some for myself. As you can tell, the barter system is alive and well among my friends.
That's six photo's not five, oh dear I can't count :(
Maybe the two cakes can count as one?
And that's it for this week.
Have a good one,
