A Sunny Day-After-Christmas




 With our family Christmas dinner celebration on Sunday, our Christmas day was a relaxed one with delightful "left-overs", family, Facetime and munchies.  Cloudy for Phoenix but not a bother to us.  We'll delight in a cool day watching Jake fetching arrows off our roof for Tessa-the-archer.


The sunshine is back today and I'm sharing the lavender and  lemons in the backyard with you.  What a joy. I would never have imagined how well, aromatic, French lavender would grow in Arizona.  I've been watering some herbs this morning and snipped a bit of basil to bring in and dry.  I'll be harvesting some of the Meyer and Lisbon lemons to take up to Utah soon.



The pool overhaul was completed in a timely manner and is now a blue jewel in the backyard.  I'm feeling grateful for much and hoping that gratitude is reflected in my life. (still having struggles with putting a post together in this new system-can you help me Mary T?)
