Unexpected gifts

I got  a box from Wyoming!  Always fun to get something unexpected!!

Long time blogging friend Nancy mailed me a hanging kitchen towel and two dishrags!  Thank you so much! Nancy is a marvelous crafter...she knits and quilts...mostly Quilts of Valor for Veterans.

We got a text message yesterday afternoon inviting us to a social distancing supper with friends.   We ate outside on their back deck... that overlooks their pasture.  It was a perfect evening to be outside. We enjoyed brats and lettuce greens from their garden and some delicious rhubarb kuchen.
We even got in some dog time!

Buddy was happy to see us too!

LOL I had to look up what brats were. Here that is what we call naughty children, quite different from what you are eating :))

Looks relaxing! More of the same here. Hot and muggy. I have a knitted washcloth and I love it.

Isn't it a nice simple boost for the soul to get to visit with people? I have a coffee date with a friend tomorrow - on her porch. Can't wait.

What sweet gifts!
Nice to social distance with friends. :)

I'm so glad you were able to see your friends. We had brats on the grill last night too with macaroni salad I made on Saturday. And a dog to love on just makes everything better doesn't it?
Blessings,
Betsy

Isn't Nancy a sweetheart! What a lovely gift and your dinner at your friends sounded great with a dog and great views and food! You lucked out that day!

It sounds like a perfect summer evening.

I'm sure it was very nice getting to go to have a social distancing meal with friends. Almost every morning we see these two old guys sitting in the park a proper distance apart and having a visit. They bring their folding chairs and sit in the sun or the shade depending on the weather. I'm glad to see that happening more and more. ( I say old guys but they're probably younger than we are).

So nice to get something totally unexpected in the mail. And then to have such a nice socially distant get-together, complete with dog. :-)

Lea said...

Beautiful gift! Cute dog! He does look happy!

How fun to get a gift from a friend in Wyoming. Wyoming is one of my favorite states! And your social distancing supper sounded so nice. Glad you had some doggie time too.
