Friday, November 21, 2014


A 6:30 a.m. drive to the cemetery this morning.
Where we placed rocks on the graves of my mother-in-law, father-in-law and a family friend who passed away a couple of weeks ago.
On the way back we stopped for plants.
And bought falafel for breakfast.
It's been a dark and gloomy day.
 With drizzly rain a few times.
Perfect weather for soup.
Spicy lentil & spinach with pumpkin sage biscuits.
And a whole lot of nothing else.
Happy Friday to all!

I love seeing your pictures. Whst are the tall stacks with the blue strips. The food looks yummy. Is your son still in school in Ohio.

The graveyards there look so different than here. Is there a symbolism for the stones you place on the grave? Sorry to hear of your friend passing away.

Your soup and other tasty treats look perfect for a drizzly day. Enjoy your weekend Tammy. Wendy x

Hi Tammy....

May all of your loved ones there rest in peace. Interesting looking cemetery.

Your food shots look yummy.

Hope you have as relaxing a weekend as Jingles. Susan

I've never ever seen a cemetery like that! How interesting. Here, most of the cemeteries have green grass and gardens. Quite the opposite, but I guess since you live in a desert country it would look like that. At any rate, it's fascinating and thanks for sharing the photo.

Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend. Mine is just about ready to begin in a couple short hours since Fridays are always short days, although this week, it seems I've barely worked since I've been sick all week long and struggling. Looking forward to more time off now and a short Thanksgiving week next week with another long weekend.

Take care!

I really enjoyed these photos of your day. The cemetery is so interesting. I'm not used to seeing one that isn't totally covered with grass. I love the idea of falafel for breakfast. The olives and vegetables with it look very nice too. Thanks for sharing your day. :)

Hi Tammy! I've never heard of putting rocks on graves, flowers yes, but not rocks. Is that common where you live? We've had a drizzley day today too, but that's better than the snow we had yesterday. :-). The falafel looks yummy. I've always wanted to try it. I hope your weekend is a lovely one.

Happy Friday to you, Tammy. Sounds like a lovely day. I'm sitting here by a fire listening to the wind and rain lashing outside. Soup for supper here, too.

That is quite the different way to honor loved ones at the cemetary. Dinner looks delicious. Jingles has the right idea for a gloomy grey day. Jingles and Kringles (this was the sentiment on my latest JoAnnes craft bag)...

Dearest Tammy,
Sorry to read that both your Father- and Mother-in-law are no longer with us. Always kind of dreary such visits and the weather only ads to that.
Love your food choices and isn't that the truth that on dark and colder days soup is the best comfort food?!
Glad you saw the Japanese wooden tea tray with your perfectly fitting doily on it. Took me a while for posting it; sorry about that!
Sending you both hugs and blessings.

Rocks on the graves? That's more practical than us with flowers that die. Is there a significance to the rocks?
We usually go to the flower shop on the way to the cemetery not afterwards. Isn't it interesting how our different cultures do things.
It was cloudy and rainy here today and I made split pea soup with ham and homemade bread. Great minds think alike! All your food looks delicious.

Hello Dear Tammy
What a nice surprise to find you came by for a visit tonight. I have missed you and hopefully with my new computer I can visit more often.
Like everyone else I am curious about placing the stones on the grave sites. I always love seeing your pictures.
Of course your yummy dishes always leave me wanting to be your neighbor. You make such great dishes and I would love to try these pumpkin recipes.
Hope you enjoy your weekend. I love your kitty so darling

What is the tradition of the stones on the graves? It sounds fascinating and respectful
