Idyllic Spring

Ahhh, Spring!!!

Such an idyllic day.

It’s 74 degrees outside, a soft breeze is blowing.

I am barefoot.

I relaxed in the back garden and painted my toes strawberry red and finished a scifi novel.

The cat napped (and yawned) in a pool of sunshine.


I found the first pink rose of the spring.

A neighbor dropped by to share fresh spring lettuces from his garden, a welcome addition to our dinner tonight!

Shared booty from a neighbor

mOm made Granny’s German potato salad while I watched, taking notes.

Another knock at the front door was a young neighbor, selling raffle tickets as part of her fundraising for next year’s fair.  She’s joining the Miss Junior Calaveras County contest.  I hope she wins, she’s so lovely and charming.  Hope one of our raffle tickets is a winner too!

Have I got a winning ticket?

Sundays in the country are so charming and relaxing, with soft warm weather, nice neighbors, a beautiful day, an even more beautiful dinner to come.

Sundays with family are such a gift.

I will miss it here.
