These were some of the goodies at Lane's party. They were made by a small, local bakery. So adorable!!:)
I bought this hydrangea at Lowe's to have as a centerpiece for the kitchen table.
For our meal that evening I fixed antipasta salad, fruit salad, cucumber sandwiches, toffee bars and banana pudding. I forgot to take a picture before we ate, so as you can see some of the platters were almost empty. I don't very often get to use my Arther Court silver and neat serving dishes, so this was reason to get them out and enjoy them!!:)

Today she had yogurt and cream of wheat for breakfast and that was sooo GOOD, she said. :) When I talked with her at 9:30 she had just gotten back from a walk down the hall and was back in bed, exhausted and ready to sleep. They plan to remove the drains in her abdomen today, they say this will be quite uncomfortable as it stretches the incision. She is not looking forward to that. Thank you from her to all of you who have called and sent your wishes and thoughts!:)

We have our special mtg. workers coming for the next two nights and special mtg. here on Tuesday evening. I quickly made these this evening to have for dessert when they are here. They are delicious and easy to make. Just what I need, as I try to unpack from our weekend and plan the meals for the next few days.

The neat winding trails on the hill top of the park.
