Portrait of a beautiful day

It was a stunner of a day -- very beautiful.  I am feeling better, and
was well enough to make a fast trip to the market with
Steven.  The farmer friend at the market gave me pickles because
apparently they're good for the immune system, and his were
soooo good (he's a chef). 

Then we sat on the back porch relaxing watching wasps devour 
the little bowl of sugar and water I'd left out.  I read somewhere
that that keeps them away from you if you want to sit outside
at the height of their interest, and it worked big time.

The back porch is always hot on a hot day, and so it was delightful
on a cool, sunny day.  And the rest of the day was equally lovely. 

Have a very happy day.
