One of my very good friends came into town last week to help her father pass on to his heavenly home. I know she felt blessed to have been there with her family at that time. Her father, our dear friend Mr. Ed passed a few days before Thanksgiving and we put him to rest this past Saturday morning. Beverly and I have been friends since high school, she didn’t introduce Dave and me, we met in first grade years before, but she did encourage Dave to ask me out on a date one day in high school and our happily ever after grew from that encouragement and and for that I will be forever grateful. We didn’t get to visit until this morning, she came over for a little coffee and we had a very nice talk and caught up on a whole lot of years and family happenings. I sure love that girl, she’s a wonderful woman who is hard working, inspiring and I just love her gumption. Bev, please do come by and visit often, even if its just for a few minutes, and I do promise to look in on your Mama, encourage her to get in touch when ever she needs anything.
In preparation for our little visit, I made raspberry scones to have with our coffee. With just a little raspberry jam they were just delicious. The recipe is easy and bake up in a quick 12 minutes.
Here’s Ina Garten’s Strawberry Scone Recipe that I adapted and made with raspberry.
Our princess was here during our visit and she was such a sweetie. She was enjoying watching the chickens on the patio and in the back yard while I cooked the scones this morning and I snapped a picture of her sweet smile.
