RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS ~ WEEK 3

 
I've linked up with Betsy for weekly RAK for the Month of February.  (Click on Betsy) to see all the other participants.
When it comes to RAK (random acts of kindness) mine seem to involved food.  Not surprising since I pitch my tent in the kitchen. HaHa.  

There is a coffee cake recipe showing up in several blogs.  It started with Linda, then Betsy made it, and after seeing the pictures, I couldn't resist.  Linda made hers with blueberries and lemon zest. (Click on her name for the recipe)  Betsy and I made ours with blackberries.   Yummy both ways I sure.



But how is this a RAK.  Well my neighbor CeCe is the reason my basket is always full of Meyer lemons.  She has a large tree, and it's my way of saying "Thank You" to take her a big chunk of the coffee cake.  She was sweet enough to let me take her picture.



Perhaps next week I can think of something that doesn't include food!!

    1. Mildred, CeCe is a very wonderful neighbor. Waters my flowers, feeds the birds, and keep an eye on the house when we're gone. Gives me her Birds and Blooms magazines when she's though with them.
      Isn't Betsy's blog delightful.

  4. You and CeCe have a great thing going on there! ha. You know, my RAD's are involving food, too! Last week I baked and this week I ate out! haha. I guess the haircut didn't involve food...but the mail lady got chocolates! Maybe we just know a way to people's heart is through their stomachs, Wanda. Yep, I think that's it! haha.

    1. We do Betsy. She keeps me in lemons and because I trade "baked goods"...it keep a few of those calories off my hips. HaHa.
      OK...I remember the stamps I gave Sylvia wasn't food!!!

  5. Gotta love that Linda! Here I am with all those blueberry bushes and I haven't tried the cake yet. Must have been posted while I was playing the gluten free game.
    I think most RAK's revolve around food. It's a universal language.

    1. Yes, you have blueberry bushes, and a note card dedicated to your blueberries...You better make that coffee cake. You know it calls for less sugar than any of my other coffee cake recipes.

    2. I will have to get on that one. As soon as the blueberries are ripe.
