I love how pictures can show us all the beauty and goodness that is in
our current daily lives.
I had some fun going through various cookbooks for ideas
on things to bake in the future and for brunch ideas.
I am planning a brunch and also thinking of fun things to have when DV
I have family over this summer.
We had gotten a Christmas gift of various meats and we had 2 of the
hamburgers on Friday on toasted English Muffins with white cheddar cheese +
Dutch Gouda cheese. They were so tasty!
We enjoyed watching a few of the Walton's shows during Bright Week, having

and being grateful in all things.
It's often when I look back at the pictures I took, that I see
how wonderful things are over all and the beauty that is in my life.
