LET'S CATCH UP

Good Morning Kindred Spirits.....
well...here we are....the month of June...
and let me just say....the HEAT is on.....
Summer is now my least favorite season 
as I find the heat oppressive and it just drains my energy.....
but, let's make the most of our days, right?
I so hope your world is bright with happy days....
today's post is a catch up of what we have
been up to lately.....just family news to share....
and I would love to hear what y'all have been doing too!




Grandson, Luke the Duke completed his freshman year of high school....
he is continuing on the track team throughout summer and has
also obtained his driving learner's permit....this is a big deal if you remember...
he also has his first job and is working at Publix for the summer season....
he's a busy and active teen which we love to see...
cannot wait for their visit next month!



Down in Pensacola, these lovely ladies
arranged a lunch date to get together and catch up on their lives...
they have known each other since 1981 and worked in
Dermatology for years.....old friends who maintain their friendship....



Our son and daughter-in-law traveled to
a high end golf resort in Indiana to celebrate two birthdays.....



These two ladies were the birthday girls celebrating
milestone birthdays.....what a way to celebrate!!!



Exciting news....granddaughter and her fiancée
just purchased their first home and we are over the moon excited for them....



Son number one attended a wedding the other evening...
and boy did he ever look like a million bucks.....



The garden looks great thus far
but summer is hard to keep things thriving.....
the beauty is such a reward for hard work.....
don't these zinnias just make you happy?



The darling had a few doctor appointments so we treated
ourselves to a lunch date prior to the appointments....
our long time favorite mexican restaurant....





The food is always delicious and the restaurants are beautifully
decorated with an excellent wait staff...we have 
been patrons of these for years and years....



Our son is an excellent chef and created
a fabulous dinner one Saturday night....
he spoke of the BACKYARD BETTY chicken sandwich
for a long time and boy he created a masterpiece....
he had one of these while living in California and said
people lined up for blocks to have one.....


Have you ever seen such a glorious sandwich.....!!!!
Divine I TELL YOU.....




Lucy is a darling scamp.....
for a tiny girl, she has a huge personality....



So, summer is in full swing....
is anyone else dreaming of Autumn?

That Backyard Betty sandwich looks divine! Do you have a recipe you can share with us?

It's always fun for the teenagers to get their drivers license. Great news about your granddaughter buying her first home. It's looks like a charming house, and I love the brick on it. Your son looks so handsome all dressed up for the wedding. The art on the walls at the Mexican Restaurant are bright and colorful, and the food looks delicious. It's nice to have a favorite Mexican Restaurant we can go to now and then. And that chicken sandwich looks amazing!

Enjoy these Summer days, Betsy.
