Wishing all my little bloggy friends a very happy weekend and a blessed Sunday!
Last evening, hubby and I went to the 90th birthday party of a friend of ours. It was lovely evening, filled with friendship, love and laughter. Joan really is an inspiration to us all. The wonderful thing is, I have never heard any negativity from her in all the years that I have known her. She is always full of joy, love and joie de vivre (I knew what this meant, but I actually looked up the true meaning and it says "to express a cheerful enjoyment of life. An exultation of spirit". I honestly never think of my friend as an 'old lady' because of her zest for life, of still learning new things and just making a person feel happy just by being with her. Perhaps that is something that we should all aim for!
Of course, with getting older, I realize that your health is everything and if you haven't got that, then life is so, so much more difficult. Joan still drives everywhere and enjoys her holidays abroad, so, in that, she is very blessed. She still lives in her own home and loves to tend her garden. The one thing she doesn't like, is having her photograph taken, so I had to do some persuading to get this one!
The full moon has been amazing in the sky this week. I don't know whether anyone else has noticed it. We are fortunate to be surrounded by fields and no other lights at all, and it really has been magnificent just hanging in the sky!
Here are a couple of photos taken of Eli and Ruby in the garden this week. Whilst Eli was at school, Ruby was helping me plant up some planters, from the seeds that we have grown on in the greenhouse, and she was taking the whole thing very seriously indeed.
Here is Ruby having some refreshment after all her hard work.
Well, I think that's about it for now. I see that I have gained a couple of new Followers, so I would like to give you a warm welcome and I look forward to getting to know you. For all my 'old faithfuls' (!) I would just like to thank you once again for all the lovely comments that you always leave for me. On my last post, some of the comments were really long and I do appreciate them all, and all the love that you give me. Sending HUGS to you all and I hope the week ahead will be a good one.
