A Pleasant Week

So last Sunday we got a call from my most excellent college friend Cole. His family has a cottage on the lake. Alas, his keys were locked in his car and cell phone reception is dicey out there. So we got him some help and offered him some dinner -- salmon stroganoff.


We sent Cole home with the last two of our Guiness brownies -- an annual St. Patrick's Day treat. Incredibly hearty and most thoroughly chocolate -- he had one already at dinner. These last ones were for Alice. Ah, but did she get them? Can you trust this man? (grin) (Click on photo for larger.)

Monday I photographed this lovely daffodil in a vase, backlit by the light from the sliding doors. I thought it one of ours, but Mrs. Dr. Phil said that Cole brought it from the cottage. How thoughtful! (Click on photo for larger.)

Monday after Physical Therapy, I thought I'd try for these power lines that I'd watched over the winter, when it was too gray and dark. (Click on photo for larger.)

The late winter, cool weather and some rain, have all made farmers anxious about when to plant. One field of grass. One field just plowed on the other side of the stream. Spring is coming. (Click on photo for larger.)

Finally we have daffodils. In the matter of days we went from green leaves, to buds and suddenly daffodils, newly revived after a heavy rain. (Click on photo for larger.)

After seeing Frozen on Saturday, we drove over to G. B. Russo's on 29th Street in Grand Rapids. Sadly we haven't been there in years, since they expanded, because we just don't get on that side of 28th Street any more. Mrs. Dr. Phil stopped at the deli counter but they didn't have any headcheese. However, they had a dark, rich blood and tongue bologna. So our Sunday lunch sandwiches included that, some Munster cheese, Coleman's mustard and was quite delightful.


This is one of the fuzzy plum-apricot hybrids. We found one the other year and they were superb and tasty. They show up for a very brief time, if they show up at all. So when Mrs. Dr. Phil found them, she bought some. Funny, her still life pile seems to be missing four. (Click on photo for larger.)

Friday we had watched The Chew on ABC and Iron Chef Michael Simon was showing off a roasted chicken on a bed of root vegetables -- baby carrots, turnips, parsnips garlic. To which we added a bit of rutabaga and we had our Mother's Day dinner. (Click on photo for larger.)
