Death is a part of life, it happens every day and is all around us, but when it touches you even remotely life is sadder. Death has touched my life this weekend a friend and fellow fester has passed away. He wasn't old by any means but he had been ill for a long while. I hadn't seen him in the last 2 years so I can only guess he was just too tired to continue on. I will always remember how happy and easy going he was, The cheery way he greeted you, the big smile, and the music that he made. The last time I saw him he was in a wheel chair and we were attending another fest family members final farewell, even still his smile was just as big and his greeting as happy and loving as always. My life was better for knowing him I will miss him greatly.
Rest in peace Bruce I hope and pray your in a better place where the music never ends and there is no more pain.
We are expecting heavy rains this weekend so we did a massive picking in the garden yesterday evening to prevent the rain from ruining the produce.
Vegetables always make great pictures. It must be all the colors and texture.
" What Was Dinner " Dinner was simple and easy and not photo worthy. What was photo worthy was Madeline preparing the beans she had picked for our dinner.
Please excuse the messy kitchen in the background I wasn't planning on a photo shoot. The green beans were so fresh and so good with the rest of dinner.
We enjoyed pork chops perfectly done on the grill and golden beets cooked in a foil pack on the grill and the deliciously steamed green beans.The green beans while normally good were the best because Madeline picked them and prepared them for steaming.
Just Grandmama's pride shinning through I am sure.
Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for stopping by.
