Forward And Back

I so looked forward to seeing two lovely friends yesterday.  They never disappoint.  And they brought lunch!  Given that it was the hottest day so far (86) and the fact I hadn't dusted, we ate al fresco in the shade on the deck where we could catch a whiff of breeze now and then.  Tinka and Kit unloaded a buffet of finger foods:  fresh veggies, chips, several dips, and a high-class frittata with artichoke hearts.  It was a perfect meal on such a day.  Knowing that I have a fondness for KFC cole slaw, they presented a tub of that which I didn't have to share!  I had taken the apple pie out of the oven shortly after the ladies arrived and it was well received.  We see each other so seldom that it was an afternoon of nonstop talking.  Kit gave me a bag of Trader Joe's goodies, including licorice, ginger cookies and other treats.  Like Bessie Anne when given a treat, if I had a tail, it would be wagging.

All too soon it was time for the gals to head back to Tinka's house.  Kit has a long drive back to SoCal ahead of her today. Those ladies give great goodbye hugs.

It was a day to look back on with fond good memories.

Note how far the earth has turned.  The sun used to go down behind the trees on the left, now it is setting behind the tree on the right.

Not only was the pie well received...it was DELICIOUS!!! And what a lovely time we had "chatting and chewing" and hugging! Such a treat to visit Farview Farm and its mistress - even if the animals think they are the ones in control! Wish I lived close enough to visit often!
