Sunday, Dinner and Movie.

Photo: Pink on the left is from Hanalei, as is Green. Pink is mine, Green is Larry’s and they watch over the kitchen.

Yesterday, I made Sunday dinner.

It has been awhile since I have felt like doing it

and

hope that going forward I am more consistent.

Larry helped me cook and we had the best time.

I made a pascade….a French goodie. {and it was delish}

Our dinner plates were full, but with clean, proteins.

Larry made the faites maison frites……they were amazing. Home made fries.

I made steak with maitre’d  butter and we had the pascade with dinner.

Our wine was a pleasant surprise.

The Bunny Malbec. LOVED it.

For dessert, I made homemade shot glasses out of dark chocolate.

Filled with chocolate mousse…was lovely.

Our movie was To Catch a Thief. Oldie but goodie

and

it always inspires me to make a vintage garment. {I have something planned!}

I have something planned…but must find the “right” fabric from Mood Fabrics in NYC.

Have a great day…..smile often.

Love you beyond shopping for fabrics on the Internet.

Outside of Honolulu

I went far away but am home now.

While away, we smiled, laughed, exercised and created ART.

But…there is something  special about being home.

{my own bed being the best!}

I have 100 photos to share,

and

today jet lag is assaulting each of my senses,

so most of photos must wait…except one. Photo above was taken by me

outside of Honolulu a few weeks ago. I love the fog. {like my jet lag fog}

I wish you happy moments today.

Love you.

Me.

 

 

 

 

 

It Is OK

On Monday, I went to see  DR L.

I have known DR L for 30 years.

We talked about politics, weather, ART,

chronic hyperparathyroidism, breast cancer,

surviving breast cancer, diabetes,

the blues and anxiety.

He said that is was OK to be blue.

I have been exercising every day, eating well

and learning to manage diabetes.

{I HATE diabetes}

Larry has been my best supporter and partner

while figuring all this out. He is the best.

 DR L gave me a prescription.

One more pill to take, while this season of my life changes.

I am telling you this because, it is OK.

It is OK for you, me  and anyone we care about, to be blue.

And asking for help is OK.

I leave to walk 3 miles in an hour and it is a beautiful day today.

Remember, it is OK.

Love you.

In The Bag

On Saturday, we went to Matilda’s softball game.

We met her family there,

and Lauren gave us a bag that had goodies in it from a friend.

We had a good day, came home….

but today Lauren called me about the bag.

She asked if I found the bracelet in it.

Bracelet?

She told me that Matilda had gotten me a bracelet

and it was in the “goodie Bag”.

{the bag went out in the trash}

I am heartbroken.

Why didn’t I look into the bag better?

You know, being a Grandmother is a rough job.

Love you.

New Procedure for Donation Quilt

 

Photo: Hand made quilt by me. Twin size. Titled Love & Joy

In an effort to get as much as I can for the donation quilt and understanding the limitation associated with the silent bid process, I have decided to raffle off the quilt.

I am going to offer a chance for the first 30 friends that donate $25.00 to MY Komen Race For The Cure.

This is My Komen Link!

The 5 of you that have already donated, already   have your name in the bowl.

That makes the odds of winning 1 in 30.

The drawing will be held the day before the Komen Race,

Friday, May 18th, 2018.

Miss Matilda Miller will draw the winner.

Please email me {robin@robintolbert.com} if you make a contribution and I will update the list until all 30  slots have been filled and I will put your name into the bowl.

Thank you for your support!

Love,

Robin

Valentine Weekend {#1}

 

Our weekend started on Friday.

We had a picnic at the  Meyerson Symphony Center

and then went to a concert.

Where the DSO performed  one of my Favorite symphonies.

Rachmaninoff No.2

It is my absolute favorite…

Please listen to the video above?

The video is not the Dallas Symphony.

{Larry bought the tickets 6 months ago}

Then on Sunday…we went to tea.

High tea at the Dallas Arboretum. It was perfect.

I had a wonderful weekend….

I hope that you did too.

Love you.
