Thank you for your kind comments and e-mails about my Sunday Afternoon Tea post. Even my daughter called, telling me my post had upset her. What post? What did I say about the kids that would upset them? Your post about being broke. Oh... Well, that happens every month it is just really early now.
To be honest, I didn't expect the reactions because this is the world in which I have lived for a long time. Actually, it is a whole lot better than it used to be since we know a "check is in the mail" each month thanks to S. S. Disability insurance. I can't say it is easy... it is not always enjoyable... but it is life. I still have tea (at home), and coffee (at home and an occasional McDonald's with hubby), books, my family, Sasha, a little bit of chocolate now and then ... life is good.
I got out last week with the camera and took these pictures. I thought you would like a peek into my neighborhood. Some pictures are from my yard, one is a peek into my neighbor's yard, one is of the county road on which our gravel lane is off of... another the farm across the county road.
With surroundings like this... one is rich. :)
