It is Thursday morning for me. This morning’s sky is filled with clouds laden with rain. I felt sprinkles while I was out taking photos. We could use more rain, as it’s been very dry here.
I had a wonderful visit with our nephew last night. He enveloped me in a huge bear hug which got us both shedding tears, and we talked and laughed and remembered Mark, it was GOOD for both of us. He took me to a favorite Cuban restaurant that we all have enjoyed in the past. Their food is always delicious! I brought home some and look forward to having it at least a couple of more times. We both had delicious pork cubes with onions and a mojo sauce, and I had yellow rice and black beans, and sweet plantains too. We had some nice toasted bread and banana chips with a garlic dipping sauce to start, and I had a glass of sangria. Too full for desert, we had a cup of Cuban coffee, which is tiny, strong and sweet. We came back home and talked and laughed some more. I needed that and he did too. He lives about 3 hours away on the other coast of FL and has volunteered to come here and give me a hand with anything, so I am thinking about that and am grateful for his offer.
Below are photos of the Persian Shield blooms and the impatiens blooms too. Their colors are vibrant in the dark morning light.
Impatiens ~ I don’t know what kind, so HELP with identification is needed.
Persian shield with yellow bulbine flowers.
This mornings’ sky.
Though outwardly a gloomy shroud,
The inner half of every cloud
Is bright and shining:
I therefore turn my clouds about
And always wear them inside out
To show the lining.
