Visiting Jeri in Idaho
On our way back towards California we stopped in Idaho to visit my friend, Jeri.
Jeri and I went to the same high school, but we didn't really hang out together then. However, we met later, about eight ? years ago, when Jeri came to California for a reunion of sorts with several of our classmates from high school. Then we clicked. And have been emailing each other pretty much on a daily basis ever since.
This was our second visit to Idaho in Jeri's charming home. She became widowed two years ago and set out to create her home to show her own personality. She painted every room, lots of Marve and Burgundies, very feminine throughout. And Jeri has a green thumb that you would not believe. Her flowers and her garden dishes she creates are simply beautiful to see. And I envy her way with moss, something I have not been able to get to grow in my garden. But hers is lush. We enjoyed a very restful day there with Twinkle and Slicker, her two cats. Unfortunately I did not capture Slicker on film.
Thank you Jeri for another really wonderful, restful, enjoyable time. Thanks for your warm hospitality. And I am so proud of you and your "big accomplishment" for which you got chocolate from me to celebrate! Way to go!!!!
Jeri and I are NOT going to our 50th class reunion in 2009! Just not our cup of tea.
Jeri checks in here, but she does not leave comments. But if you want to say hi to her you can. She'll like that.
