Nothing can make our life, or the lives of other people, more beautiful than perpetual kindness.
I live in a world where the people I know and love are kind, but the students I work with don't. I work with teenagers with major behavioral problems. They live in a world where no one in particular shows any love to them. They live in a world of arguments and fights. You deal with a disagreement by physical fighting. You make yourself number one because you aren't number one in the eyes of any body else. Confrontation with adults and peers is a way of life. How much more peaceful and pleasant it is to live in a world where people appreciate each other and are kind and helpful.

I had seen the series on TV and bought the book. I decided to start at the beginning and work through, so I made Broccoli Orechiette, Bocconcini Salad and Proscuitto & Melon Salad. Unfortunately I forgot to take any photos but the dishes turned out remarkably like the illustrations in the book.
I was a little apprehensive as I cooked as some of the sauces and dressings seemed a bit strong, but once they were added to the rest of the ingredients they were delicious. There are 49 meals left to go.
I made a banana cake for dessert. There are no photographs of it either.
My little grand-dog Jasper went home last night. He was very excited to see my daughter R and her partner B. Once they arrive I become of no consequence. I do love having him. He is such a good little thing and such great company.
R and B bought me this cute little ceramic toadstool house.

P:-) is working on our caravan today. He is putting in a second light. We may go away for a few days. It depends largely on the weather.
I am just enjoying lounging around today. It is the second and last week of holidays. It is 12 pm and I am still in my dressing gown. Luxury.
