Special Remembrance- Desserts- Peanut Friend

Maddie… the daughter of my precious niece took her own life a few years ago…

It was and still is such a hard situation…

but…

my niece-husband-their son-daughter… have made her Birthday a Special Remembrance…

Since her birthday (she would have been 19 this year)… is right before school starts…

Her Mother has an Open House for anyone who wants to come… and a request… if able… is to bring school supplies for kids that are in need…

A place is chosen every year…

This year is Boys/Girls Haven… logo and a church…

I bought and put items in a bag for a month… Anytime I found things that would be useful…

I imagine there might be a 1000 items collected…

from all that contributed…

backpacks- pencils- paper-folders- glue- tape- notebooks- erasers- etc.

It was a hot day today… my nephew and sister finding shade outside… and my niece’s German Shepherd finding a cool drink from the fish pond…

An Aunt had made a collage’ of Maddie’s pictures… and her sister formed a 19 with the cupcakes…

special tributes to someone who we all loved… and left us way too soon…

Bobby and I went to Frisch’s Big Boy…  Home_GoodThings_banner hot_fudge_cake … to eat lunch and couldn’t resist bringing home dessert of Hot Fudge Cake… their specialty since I was a teenager!…

and I ate the whole thing!…

Bobby has been making friends with a squirrel in our backyard…

He tosses peanuts in the shell to him…

and then the squirrel will eat one

and then the next one is buried in the yard…

They have become pretty good buddies…

Bobby picked up salted peanuts by mistake… so the squirrel after eating it… runs to the water bucket to drinkbucket-water-14043708

quite funny!…

I buy me one piece of Key Lime Pie every now and then at the grocery… I figure better than making a whole one and eating too much…

My treat and so good!
