Time With Old Friends

Good Morning to you! Last night on the news, the forecaster said that May is always our wettest month~so why does it seem that the rain has been falling every day and more than in past years.  I know we've had some nice days and starting this weekend, we are supposed to be entering a warm phase, but seriously it seems like we are in Seattle. Yesterday a friend came over, she is one of the first gals I met when we moved here over eight years ago. We did a lot of things together back then; her kids were still in junior high and it was a different season on life. Now she is preparing to move cross country. She had hubby and I over several times, years ago, but somehow it never worked to have her and her hubby over. I wanted to have a nice lunch for her to celebrate the times we spent together. I made this delicious Quinoa salad; it has cucumbers, onion, tomatoes, black and garbanzo beans, basil ribbons and feta cheese. The dressing was lime juice and olive oil. It's one of my favorites.

I put out baked Parmesan crisps, french bread with olive oil and pesto.  I also made a berry salad with coconut yogurt that was the perfect dessert.
We spent several hours catching up and it was delightful. I'm so excited for them and yet it is bittersweet~for although we didn't spend time together in recent years, it was nice knowing she was around.
I'm off to a quilt meeting this morning and then home to sew afterwards.
Stay warm and dry; seems like there is heavy rains all over.
Joy to you!


  1. Recipes please!!! (for the entree and the dessert!!!) Please!!!! They look and sound delicious!!!! catchatwithcarenandcody

  2. Yes, it's raining here ... and is cold! It looks like spring when I look out the window, but it sure felt more like winter when we went to Siteman this morning. I can't wait for warmer weather so I can get back outside and walk. I'm missing my walks. 😟

  3. Oh yes, time spent with good friends is always such a treat. We haven't had much rain here but I do feel like it's been a pretty mild May and spring here so far. I'd love to hear the recipe too for that salad. It sounds delish. Hope your having a good week!

  4. It is so great to reconnect with old friends! Your lunch sounds delicious! Blessings, Pam @ Everyday Living

  5. Oh that food looks so yummy!

  6. Oh how I wish God would send some of that rain down to AZ. We certainly did not get the promised moisture from the El Nino this year that we hoped for. I hope you really enjoyed your time with your friend. Enjoy the days ahead! Blessings, Cindy xo
