I finally did it; I told them NO. No dinners this weekend; no cakes, no pastries, no wine, no floral decor. No roasts or ducks or chickens. No fancy tables. I am getting ready for France and there is no time for a family dinner. Sob.
Then today, my friend N came by the market to see me in her scooter chair. We have been friends for many long years, and she is now in poor health and with a cane or scooter. This is a longer story, but I did something special for her today, I brought her a steamed Maine lobster. Maine lobster is near and dear to her heart as she is a New Englander~ this made a 75 year old lady super super dooper happy today~
oh yeah, I got one for me and a few friends tonight too; the price was the best. But is there someone you know who would love something special or simple...holidays are so lonely for the elderly and I never forget that.
This Labor Day is among me and a few friends; like my sweet little Miss Honey:
I indulged in the flowers, but for my sister's house:
do we have to see summer end?
the bees and herbs~
I did several arrangements for my sis, and delivered those on the way to get N's lobster:
Summer, please come again soon!
