Creative Leftovers

Roasted extra veggies for dinner, stored them in a container (which I stored in the refrigerator) and turned it over on a plate for lunch the next day. Beautiful and delicious cold drizzled with balsamic vinegar.

Rainbow: Nature’s Mother’s Day Gift

Nature provided me with a gift at the beginning (lilacs in my backyard) and end of this special day. Looked out from my kitchen window early evening and caught this incredible view as a spectacular end to my day. (A double rainbow, no less).

Lilacs: Nature’s Gift

My cousin, Annette is very visual and creative. While visiting this weekend, she suggested I consider adding more color to my decor. We had fun shopping and redecorating! Love it! Adding colors you love, really has a profound effect on your mood. Amazing…thank you Annette😘
