In the company of friends ....

I've been home most of the week as Habibi has been ill. He had surgery on his gums this past week and is still off his food. Poor puppy!

I've got three new paintings on the go, however, you will have to wait until they progress a little farther before I put them on the blog.

Today I spent the afternoon with two lovely friends and had a wonderful lunch cooked for us in my home. What a delight. I didn't lift a finger, and don't think I could have, so it was all a big blessing. We began lunch with fresh brocheta and beautiful tomatoes, then carrot soup with a little cream on top in the shape of a heart. Main course was fresh salad and pasta with home made sauce. Accompanied by a lovely chardonnay. For dessert - home made chocolate moose. Sitting in the sun chatting over a beautifully prepared lunch, sipping wine with friends
... nothing like it is there.


Thanks for dropping by my Lovely's.  Hope all is well with you.

"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”

  1. Looks lovely, glad you had a great time, and the food sounds yummy. Hugs, Valerie

  2. How wonderful to have lunch in your own home with friends and you didn't have to prepare the food. Did you notice your centerpiece matches the yummy lunch. Gorgeous flowers! Hope Habibi feels better soon.


  3. Food looks great......friends look great....sitting out and chatting with a little wine sounds like a wonderful time was had by all.

  4. Lovely meal and beautiful friends, if you were closer I'd pop by for a glass of that sangria! ~Diane
