Things That Make Me Happy!

Planting seeds in the garden and witnessing success.


Enjoying the company of family near and from afar!


Reading a good book sitting on the deck in the sun.

The doggies at the beach.



My darling husband.


And beautiful summer days. High 70’s and low 80’s in the forecast for the weekend.

What makes you happy?

Supper Last Night


Grilled Chicken with Strawberry Salsa

Tried out this new recipe. grilled Chicken marinaded in lime juice and cilantro, oil and salt and pepper. Strawberry salsa consists of fresh berries, avacado, red onion, jalapeno, garlic and lime juice. Served on fresh spinach leaves.

Chicken was delicious. Salsa needs a tweek. Too much lime juice maybe? Needed a dash of honey.

Have a good day!

4th of July

Celebrated quietly at home. Face-timed with family in Florida.

Picnic at home. Family here for bbq chicken, homemade potato salad, calico beans and cherry crisp.


Mom was all smiles.

Celebrated Maggie's birthday with dessert...she missed out on her birthday.

It was a beautiful, sunny, light breezy day. Spent relaxed in the sun!

God Bless America, land that I love!
