Hello my dear friends. It's Lilly here writing today. My Mom is busy taking care of the grandchildren so she suggested that I write this blog post.
I woke up to drizzly, gray weather today so I've had to stay indoors. I missed walking around the pool and looking for geckos. But, as you can see in this photo, I found my Mom's lily bouquet and chewed on the leaves. I know, it's a no no so she put the vase up on the fireplace; away from me and the grandchildren.
My parents took an overnight trip this past week to eastern San Diego county. My Mom loves the drive there since it's very scenic and such a natural setting. (They actually spent the night at the Pala Resort). I missed them but I enjoyed my alone time, too.
Can you believe that my Mom still irons? She irons every Tuesday and has for years and years. Who in the world irons sheets and pillowcases in this day and age? She insists on ironing and it really puzzles me. . .
I'm not a lover of sweet things (I prefer fish and savories), but Mom made a country style apple pie. It's her own recipe using her standard pie crust recipe along with sliced apples, a few wild frozen blueberries, with a tad bit of butter and some brown sugar and maple syrup. It smelled heavenly.
As you probably know, I'm a lover of birds - all kinds of birds. Look what I spied this week near the pool. Two beautiful little doves. I sometimes hear them cooing. Such delicate little birds.
This is the first time I'd have such a close look at these birds. After they flew away, we had two Canadian geese land in the pool. Oh my, was my Dad upset as they make a huge mess. They are so majestic though and flew away.
Earlier in the week my parents went to the beach to have lunch. It was a lovely, spring day and they enjoyed it very much. The day before, there had been a shark sighting at the same beach. Scary stuff! (My Mom "stole" the photo above from my Sister who is an excellent photographer)
Well guys, here I am, relaxing in my recliner chair. I'm a bit upset since the grandchildren have come over and taken over all my favorite spots to nap. But, I will survive.
I hope each of you have a wonderful weekend wherever you may be. It's always good to hear from you and I send you and my furry friends a big MEOW.
