had a wonderful day…

began with making my favourite zucchini basil soup for tonight’s dinner…

  

took the time to take pictures of each step in the process…

  
turned out great… as I worked on each step I thought of the people coming for dinner and how lovely it will be to see them and spend time together…

the hardest part of making this is finding the basil and zucchini at the same time… much simpler in the summer, lol…

had the screen door open as I was working on the soup… was so beautiful, decided to eat my lunch on the deck and read for a bit… the sun was so warm…

  
set the table and went for a walk…

  
planned the dinner with St. Patrick’s day in mind, thus the green soup, lol… enjoyed preparing it as I don’t do much entertaining these days…

made a huge garden salad and shredded a bbq rotisserie chicken to go along with the soup and some fresh bread… the salad reminded me of my beloved’s wonderful salads… have not been able to recreate them…

also set up our conversation spot to focus on lean-to/support to go along with a program one of the group had sent everyone…

  
took the last few minutes before their arrival to sit and relax…

dinner was enjoyed by everyone, and we had some thoughtful conversation…
