An Extra Day...

 
 
 
 
An Extra Day.
Food...Italian style.
New chairs...yay!
Goodbye old chairs?
Lazy.
Picking flowers.
Pinterest discoveries.
Blue skies.
More lazy.
A walk by the lake.
Lilacs.
More flowers.
Veg bed building.
Missing cushioned chairs.
Family.
Friends.
Loved it.
 
Four more days, then we can do it all again!
Hope, if you had an Extra Day, you enjoyed it too...

  6. I simply want to sit here and scream at my computer "how on earth does she keep her kitchen so tidy??" It always looks so good and inviting. Glad though that you had a nice weekend. There has been so much stress and pressure here, I really don't remember when we had such a carefree weekend. But I remain optimistic that all will improve soon. Thanks for the lovely photos.

  7. That salad looks just like the kind of thing I make myself at lunchtime. And four of those raised beds - I'm really envious now, but at least you told me where they were from!
    We've had a lot of rain here. In fact I cut some of the little narcissi from outside and put them in a vase (they smell heavenly). Might as well enjoy them indoors...
    Hope you have a lovely week.
    Sx

    1. Sometimes it's best to pick them rather than let them be smashed by the rain! ;) xxx
