|Dahlia in a garden in Elko, NV, last August|
1. Time with a cousin I seldom see. She was staying at the beautiful property our extended family owns on a somewhat remote pond. We spent several hours there enjoying lunch and a lot of visiting. She's younger than I am, with college age kids, and was always more my sister's friend than mine, but we're at a similar place in life as far as our parents and siblings having died, and having houses full of belongings to dispose of. Lots to chat about, and in such a beautiful setting!
|The binoculars are always nearby on the camp porch. Ready for wildlife viewing!|
I took along the Alfresco Bean Salad below. It's a favorite of ours and very healthy.
3. Time at the lake with my daughter, grandchildren, and friends. While there, I also had time chatting with a dear friend, time working on my grocery list and time to embroider. As you can see, it was a glorious day. It was also the hottest, most uncomfortable day this week, but there's always a breeze at the lake, so I was grateful for the opportunity to spend the day there.
5. Cooler temperatures and lower humidity today! I don't handle heat and humidity well at all.
There you have my Friday five! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
