After the rain, came a beautiful, sunny weekend.
The grass is greener, the blossoms are bursting forth.
The sky seems bluer.
Later last evening two little guests arrived for the weekend.
Saturday morning we walked through our neighborhood and visited the many garage sales
taking place here. We made two fun purchases that I will share sometime with you, if
I consider it even the least bit newsworthy.
When we got home, our granddaughter wanted to bake in the kitchen, and time was
available to do so.
She decided on mini brownies. She chose the pan, and the process began.
As always she took the process seriously, stirring with one hand and holding the bowl with the
other, maintaining her upmost concentration:)
I must admit that by this time, we were both covered with chocolate icing.
We went and picked the white violas in the garden, and then washed and dried each
white flower in the middle of each tiny creation.
The tinges of pride were growing, with each word of praise offered.
Togetherness in the kitchen...what could be better!
But in the end, she was willing to take full credit. A major accomplishment on a Saturday
morning in May, for this little one.
One box of brownie mix made all of these delicacies.
Thankfully, they will freeze well for another occasion.
I am so grateful for rare moments like these.
"For flowers, for seashells,
for art, for music,
for birds, for dogs,
for ducks, for geese,
for water, for air,
for sky, for stars,
for sunshine, for earth,
for grass, for food,
for drink, for laughter,
for affection, for my friends,
for my family, for my parents,
for my children, for my beloved husband,
for my life,
thank you God...even if it's only a loan."
