An Oasis on a Dusty Day

The sun had to work extra hard yesterday.

Even though we had a bit of rain the nite before, the dust has settled in.

Shereen invited me to her place for lunch after school.

A bit of bliss on a day of drear.

Warm tuna salad served on lettuce.

Chocolate espresso cake served with strawberries, grapes and green tea.

And a gift! (My birthday is Saturday)

Shereen handstitched this gorgeous flower on a knubby silk material and had it framed.

A lovely way to end a very frantic morning (traffic was awful) and a busy day. I hope all of you are having a blissful day in your corner of the world. Friendship blessings, Tammy

Shereen is a wonderful friend. Not only did she make a beautiful presentation at lunch (are those Peonies?), she sets a wonderful table and great food. AND made you that astoundingly lovely handstitched picture.
A sweet friend indeed.

Happy birthday a little early. The luncheon looks yummy and the gift is beautiful. Hope the dust settles down. We had a very rainy day yesterday and today we have a light dusting of snow on the ground. Have a wonderful day.
