A Little Lunch, the Salami not the Dog

Ron is missing Cherry, she is Boo's daughter and probably our last dog,..... so he says. The jury is still out on that one! All our dogs have been ,"Lovey", dogs. I know that's not a real word but I think you know what I mean. She is cute, loyal, has quite the personality and is smart as a whip. I hope she will be around for a long while. I thought I'd send him a picture as he hasn't seen her for a few months.

Ron has me getting all the paper work together for taxes, he started the process and actually has a great system in place, but I'm anxious to do artsy, crafty things, or work in the garden (avoidance) and not much in the mood for adding up sums, so when HUNGER came calling I took a much needed break, and made myself a little lunch that didn't take much effort, but had a lot of flavour. Only thing missing was the wine, but had I had that I certainly would not be returning to the paper work. So mineral water it was!

An Easter Wish

Daisies make me very happy. They are cheerful, sunny , simple blooms that remind me of spring and all things beautiful. They are one of my favorite flowers, when I got married 35 years ago, all my bridesmaids had daisy bouquets.
When I arrived back from Michigan my sister Heidi had supper ready and a beautiful daisy plant on the table. She remembered they are my favorite. So appropriate for Easter also, I know that the regal Lily is the Easter flower of choice, but for me it will always be the daisy.
I returned from Michigan , happy to be home for Easter but also a little sad that Ron is still there completing another phase of closures. I met so many lovely people in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. If I could have only one wish granted to me I would wish that all these lovely people will be able to find new jobs quickly, as many are wondering how to put food on the table and are in danger of losing their homes. Many of these people will be leaving their State, family and friends and will be looking for opportunities elsewhere, where they don't have this network of support. I do wish them all well. Easter is a time for new beginnings, I know that if they keep a positive outlook on life as one door closes another will open for them.
