Lunch With Jazz

Shirley came down yesterday to join me for our Jazz and Lunch activity here at the Commons. It was pot-luck time so I took lemonade and a congealed salad. She brought pasta salad and cookies. Other gals brought goodies like sliders, barbeque sandwiches, chips... you get the picture. Oh, and deviled eggs. You can not have pot-luck without deviled eggs!  

The musicians were great! Jazz, I am not sure about. Yeah, I know, there are different kinds of jazz and what I know about jazz would fit in a thimble. We enjoyed it so who is complaining, right! 

Afterward she and I went out on my balcony, sat at my new 'high-top' table and sipped on iced tea and chatted awhile. The temps had gone down some so it wasn't uncomfortable. Lordy, it's been hot here! Don't know about your neck of the woods but here... H. O. T. Glad we could enjoy ourselves outside for a bit. 

The sky was such a gorgeous shade of blue with white puffy clouds. I love seeing the clouds change shape as the wind pushes them about. Sometimes I see things. Dogs, an elephant's head, a ship. Do you do look at clouds and find figures there? Or is that just me? 


  1. I often do the same, sit and stare at the clouds and let them reveal themselves to me. Fun.

  2. You have such fun activities, where you live....

    I don't know much about Jazz either. -smile- But if it's live, and free, and you have lunch in front of you, why not have a good time? And you did...... -smile-

    We have had a break in the weather too.

    I see some bloggers feeling that Autumn is coming. I don't yet. For one thing, I know that heat will return!!!!!!!! It will... It will.... It will... -smile-

    But enjoy those days of deep blue sky and puffy clouds!!!!!

    Gentle hugs

  3. Sounds like you had a lovely day. :)

  4. I love watching those summer clouds. I often see weird shapes but mainly I just enjoy them. All winter we are socked in with gray rain clouds that are no fun at all to watch. It makes the summer ones yet more special.
    Notice that once more I could comment even if it insists I'm anonymous. Granny M

    1. You are not anonymous to me and I do so appreciate your efforts in commenting on my blog. Bless You! I'd have given up already, I think.

  5. I love finding things in clouds!
    Your potluck sounds wonderful. I like some jazz, others not so much. There is such a variety!
    Here it is cooler. My husband and I were just sitting on the porch and came in because I was getting cold. But we're in Michigan...

  6. We have modest clouds here, but yours are lovely!

  7. Sounds like a fun pot luck! You're so lucky you and your daughter are close and get to spend time together. Cooler temps are coming soon I hope!

  8. I see things in the clouds all the time. Those clouds of yours are beautiful. Your daughter is, too. I have a daughter day tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it.

  9. I look at the fluffy white clouds all the time to see what shapes I can identify. By the way, "Barton" was my maiden name.


Thank you for your visit, your comment and your friendship. You have just made my day.
