~ Sunday's Gifts ~

Happy Sunday
Just finished my tea and danish
and thought I should let you... my dear friends
{who left such caring & compassionate comments which warmed my heart so}
{a million thanks to you all}
know that my family is feeling much better today
and I am still healthy
{dare I say that?}

I thought this would be a good day to
share another Maria and Me adventure
If you are new to my blog....
Maria is my lovely blue bike
we have been on many adventures together
travelling the
"cute spots"
of our area
click here to see where else we have been

This time we cycled to
Limbert Mountain Farm

This herb farm is adorable
and their lunches are incredibly yummy


I also want to share something amazingly wonderful with you all

Thank YOU for your lovely blog and your kind and thoughtful comments on my own little home-front. Glad to hear your family is better!

Sue said...

I'm glad you are staying well, I haven't been quite so lucky. I just put 5 blogs in my favorites to read tomorrow thanks to your post. There is never enough time to read them all, is there?


Maria said...

Glad all is well at your household, Koralee!
I love your bicycle's name ;o)
I'll be following along with interest during the five day blogging event...
It all reminds me to MAKE MY APPOINTMENT!
All the best~ Have a healthy week! ~Maria

Maria said...

ps. Koralee, I meant to ask you last week... How do you make the swirly text that you used on the teacup graphic? It's fabulous!

Simply Colette said...

Yummy breakfast! Hope your family is recooperating. Looks like you had a wonderful adventure with Maria. :)

Julie Harward said...

Oh, I'm so glad that you didn't get the bug and that your kids are on the mend. Your bike tour sounds wonderful, looks like you have beautiful places to go see!
You are so advanced in all the blogging stuff, I don't know how to do much except what I do. I'll most likely never be much better than I am now! Kind of sad huh?! Oh well, last year I couldn't even do this much, and believe it or not hadn't touched a keyboard since 67..sounds awful~ Good luck with all you're doing, it is a great cause! :D

Vicki said...

Hi, Koralee,
I am glad your family is doing better. You can't help but worry when your loved ones are sick. Wash your hands often and hopefully, you will stay well. I am glad you were able to get out and about on your cute bike, Maria. Thank you for the reminder about the cervical cancer awareness. I had read about it at Sharon's and plan to be a part of it. Have a blessed week. Vicki

Amanda (Small Acorns) said...
