About 1:00 p.m. I took a short walk through the empty lot near me. I came upon an old neglected pear & apple tree. The fruit wasn't edible, but I decided to pick a few branches to bring home anyway. They were the perfect size to put in a new centerpiece.
I am sure getting a lot of use from this vase I bought last week!
Shortly after 1:00 p.m., I called my Mom and invited her and Dad over for dinner tonight. I was already planning to cook a pot roast, fresh-from-the-farmer's-market red potatoes and carrots. There was plenty for four people. I also made a spinach salad with watermelon, grapes, red onion and sugared walnuts. I made my favorite vinegar, oil & soy sauce dressing. I thought it was delicious and plan to make it again tomorrow.
Mom had made one of the family favorite pies -- lemon meringue--earlier this morning and she brought it for dessert. Doesn't it look good?
It's been a while since I had my Mom's lemon pie. It was delicious!
All in all it's been a good day. I hope you are all having a great weekend, too.
Oh, the pupae are still pupating. It's Day 15.
I stuck them outside in a plant where they make a nice focal point to the container.
