Jewels, Cake and Route 66

19 Sep

While we were away some dear friends visited next door for our lovely neighbour’s birthday and they left me a box of mixed ‘jewels’ for my glass work. I’m looking forward to getting back to it and creating some beautiful angels with pretty decorations.

Thank you C.

Our lovely neighbour Sue-next-door  had an emergency operation yesterday to sort out a detached retina and today I made her the most delicious Rhubarb Cake, which we were introduced to in Arizona, to aid her recovery.

Rhubarb cake with freshly picked rhubarb from our allotment.

We travelled some of the old Route 66 on our way north to the Grand Canyon.

    I just looked back at your blog and somehow my comments came through when I was on your blog. Crazy! Sorry making a mess of comments, but for so long I haven’t been able to make comments on your wonderful blog. Hope you are enjoying Arizona. 🙂

      Thank you. We loved Arizona and New Mexico and our last week in Atlanta with my brother and his wife whom we hadn’t seen since the pandemic. I’ll be posting over the next week or two. 😊

    I looked at your blog and could not comment there, but I could comment on the Reader Page. Strange but GOOD!

    I loved rhubarb when I was young. The cake sounds even better.

      I loved dipping a stick of rhubarb into sugar and crunching on it! Haven’t done that in years! 😋

    Very best wishes to Sue. Don’t suppose you could share the rhubarb cake recipe? 🤪
