We had a very busy and fun Valentine's Day. I had this thought in the back of my mind yesterday. A Valentine Picnic. So when I got up and the day was to be full of warmth and sunshine I decided to make it a reality. Packed little sandwiches of cucumber and creamy Swiss cheese, ham and avocado some fresh strawberries a few chips and some ginger ale.
The setting was our local Desconso Gardens. Found an empty table near the pond in the courtyard for our Valentine Picnic Lunch.
There are a few trees beginning to bloom and a nice gentleman took this so we could have one together.
If the day couldn't get any better ~ it did! I was reading a dear friend Martha's blog post about her "sneaky random act of kindness." Just then the mail lady called my name, and told me I had a package. When I saw the return address was NY and Martha...I'm sure my jaw dropped to my knees. Is that a coincident. NO I think that was a God Blessing. A darling pottery mug, some delicious cookies and the recipe. The card was adorable too!! What can I say... I am so blessed. Thank you Martha.
Before we went on our Picnic, we made a quick trip to the Thrift Store. I grew up with Aunt Jamima syrup and Pancake mix. I just loved the picture on the bottle with her red bandanna, so when I saw this wooden spoon, I knew it had a home with my other kitchen utensils.
Decided to make a run through the rack of tops as I need a new black and brown one. Don't often find anything this nice. Both are Joseph A. The black one is sleeveless with jewels around the neck. The brown one is longer and ribbed with short cap sleeves. Both fit great, and look brand new.
Now tell me ~ can a day get any better than that?
