Five Scenes

My daughter, son-in-law, and two grandies spoiled me for Mother’s Day.

They took me on a scenic drive to a farm, a lavender farm, and as you can see, the lavender was not in bloom.

Who needed the lavender, with such fields of serene beauty.

Before we got to the farm, we had lunch, and walked a bit through the town center that we were in.

Then, we drove to the farm.

If you know me, you realize I like to take captures that might perplex others. It is my way of being.

I see certain qualities in a vision in front of me, and just have to catch the moment.

There is a lot to be said for all of the lovely greenness that surrounded us. That, in itself,

was absolutely amazing, and worth the drive.

Of course, no day trip is complete without purchasing items. I bought English lavender plants, and also French lavender plants. My son-in-law snuck in a beautiful ock, with a lavender painting on it, into a bag of lavender tea cakes, and sachets, that I had purchased.

There were other gifts, that we exchanged at home. But, the greatest gift of all was to be with family members in an outdoor, stunning setting.


I did finish reading The Hour of the Witch. It was quite the amazing novel. I would rate it four stars out of five stars. The historical information was excellent.

Last night I had dinner at my daughter’s house. We had tacos, for Taco Tuesday. They were delicious. My daughter made a scrumptious Lemon curd pie. Oh my goodness, I am drooling thinking about it.

I hope you are all well and safe. Have a nice rest of the week. Thank you for stopping by.

Dining and Reading

My daughter, son-in-law, and my two grandies stopped by late yesterday afternoon. We chatted for a bit, and then I suggested we go out for dinner, now that the local restaurants have been operating at 50% capacity for inside dining, for about one month

We took a poll, and it wasn’t easy to decide on where to go, as the grandies had different ideas than the adults did. We settled on a Mexican restaurant, which I had not been to, but my daughter and son-in-law had eaten at.

Last night’s dinner choices were no different in the delicious-looking category, for me and my daughter, and son-in-law. When the food was brought to us, it looked colorful, festive, and mouth-watering.

The grandies weren’t thrilled with where we had dinner, so they don’t count in the equation, as far as happiness is concerned. They definitely count, as far as their presence, don’t get me wrong. I love being in their company, even if they aren’t satisfied with decisions.

My grandson had a burrito dinner, and my granddaughter had rice and beans with flour tortillas. She spread the rice and beans inside the tortillas. I didn’t take photos of their dinners.

All in all, it was nice to get out of the house to eat in a restaurant.

While I might still have your attention, I am in the midst of reading a few books. Yes, I am reading more than one book. It is normal for me. Here are the titles:

The Forgotten Letters of Esther Durrant

The Inventory

The Plague

Machines Like Me

Notes From An Exhibition

There you have it, dining and reading. Of the two, I must admit reading is a constant pleasure of mine.
