I also went to the Farmers Market in L.O.
This photo reminds me to start making
this Rhubarb Relish.....
Combine the following ingredients in a
medium saucepan and bring to a boil
over high heat:
2 cups diced rhubarb
1/2 cup sugar
Grated zest of one orange
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup chopped shallots or red onion
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
Reduce the heat and simmer until the rhubarb
softens, about 12 minutes.  Yum!

Lucy's very favorite spot for her afternoon nap.
Here are my answers to this weeks questions:
1. Happiness is being married to your best friend .
2. Ten years ago, I truly retired.
3. Laughing with friends is the best medicine.
4. Most people don’t know that I am a liberal conservative.
Fiscally conservative and socially liberal.
Have a lovely Friday!

While walking in downtown Mt Shasta
I went past this adorably planted front yard.
Pretty pansies in a purple pot,  but what
caught my attention were the little pansies
coming up in between the pavers. Too cute!
