Roller Coaster weekend

Last week, we celebrated our daughter’s birthday with her at her home with a nice visit, a PB/chocolate pie (Yum!!!) & gift-opening.

Sauteed Radishes on a rainy evening

Rain Rain go away…

It’s a gloomy Thursday with the rain falling and grey scenery, but after my household chores, writing and catching up on important phone calls, I’m going to read book number two in the Dragon Heart Legacy series.
