Wonderful Wednesday in Paradise

Cheers to this beautiful, sunny weather!IMG_0496

And cheers to the fabulous new kitchen at Johnnie and Susan’s house, finally finished (and seriously remodeled) after a house fire over a year ago.  No, not a kitchen fire.  It happened in the garage, resulting in smoke damage in the entire home.  What an adventure they have had.  The Super Bowl game was a great opportunity to throw a “new home” party!

So my big plan for the day is to go food shopping, now that I am allowed to drive again…my list has grown and the larder has gotten lean in a week’s time.  Neighbor Kathy stopped by yesterday with thoughts of a combined supper—she had potatoes and fresh broccoli and was going to pick up a roasted chicken.  No, no--MM had some venison marinating.  Instant (and tasty) dinner for 4, al fresco, complete with a lovely red wine.  We love these impromptu meals and good times.

Life is good…and YOU are in control of that!

Food for ThoughtFriends are the bacon bits in the salad bar of life.

Kitchen looks great! I know you enjoyed being with them at the party. And how nice to be able to combine dinner with your neighbors! Hugs...

Love the food for thought. Right on the money my little bacon bit.

How fun and I'll have one of whatever those delicious drinks are. Just saying. Oh and some wine too.

Got all the laundry done yesterday and today I'm doing the shopping too. We must be on the same page here. Glad you can drive again.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. ☺

Oh, I'll have one of those frozen concoctions, too! I love her lighter cabinets. I painted a nice neutral, a pale sage-ish color, but if I had it to do over...

Hooray for being healed up well enough to drive again. Enjoy the day! big hugs xoxo

It all sounds delicious and looks wonderful. That's the color I want my cabinets when and if I get my kitchen remodeled.

That kitchen is beautiful. I bet they are glad to have it all done.

I am glad you are feeling better and thank you for being my bacon bit too!

Happy sunny days and big hugs! :-)
