It looks like you had a wonderful few days enjoying some of your favorite things - except the bracelet (darn). Happy birthday - tomorrow! I hope your peonies show their big beautiful blooms and you have a fantastic day!

Hi, Lynne! I haven't been to The Lake House yet but did have lunch there a couple times when it was Rafferty's. Very nice then.
Hasn't the weather been glorious? Oh my but the pics of your flowers are beautiful. I love your new peony.
Dinner with Mister Irish I'm sure tasted as good as it looks. Yum!
Ahhh, Mrs. Peacock's iris stand is lovely.
Mums the word on that Dove ice cream bar.
Hurry, hurry when you receive your next Sundance catalog. Their bracelets are awesome.
Your daughter & great granddaughter are beautiful too, Lynne. Nice smiles!
Happy, happy birthday tomorrow, Lynne!



Wishing you a Happy, Happy Birthday, Lynne.

Well, Happy Birthday my dear friend! You look mah-vulus dahling! :) Suzie is, indeed, beautiful, and the photo of her with Oakland is so precious. Those sweet little hands clutching her grandmother's arm. Makes my heart swell. Your flowers are beautiful, both the cut and the uncut. Time spent with a friend is always nice. Looks like you communed in a lovely environment. Your culinary creations look divine. This is one of my favorite posts. It's filled with love, joy, peace, beauty, creativity, friendship, giving and receiving. Lovely. Hugs, Nancy
