Saturday

Today my young girl and her husband are visiting and so all else falls by the wayside.

Right, Scotch? Step aside! I'm rushing through garden work!

Ohhhh! Lovely flowers!

I do a thorough clearing. Thorough! (I am reminded of preparations so many grandparents make for the arrival of their children and grandchildren -- preparations that are unnecessary, but ones we want to make nonetheless because who else is this important? This deserving?)

Lilies by the porch...

Breakfast...

And then I am off and I never slow down, not for one minute.

We're at the farmers market and Snowdrop is just thrilled to see her aunt!

Most of the time she spends clutching her hand...

Hugging, playing...

Afternoon: my little girl (not Snowdrop, the other little girl, the one that lives in Chicago) comes over to help me cook dinner. We're ambitious! And a bit Parma-Itlalian oriented. Fried bread stuffed with prosciutto,  Tomato gnocchi. Then homemade chocolate cookies stuffed with peach ice cream.

We all take a break every now and then...

...sitting out on the porch, eating the foods we put together for this day.

The evening continues in wonderful ways, even as I slowly wear down. Good night, good night! Don't let the mosquitoes bite! Can't wait till I wake up and see everyone in the morning!
