  1. Good Morning Cilla Sweetie...
    Oh I am late, I'm late for a very important date. I am late for tea with you, you see.

    That glass of tea, no syrupy sweet for me, but lemon for sure. I also have to try a cookie, or two or three, I mean they are sugar free. You know me? Don't you sweet pea.

    I love this chili recipe. The weather here is going to have to change a LOT before I can be encouraged to eat chili though. Still having triple digit days here in the desert. I look forward to cooler weather, I hope soon?

    I am going to try that sugar free peanut butter cookie recipe though. I am always looking for a treat for me. Thank you sweet friend for thinking of me.

    I hope you are well. I have had a couple of bad days this week. Still suffering with a lot of muscle spasms in my neck when I strain to push out sounds to talk.

    Have a gorgeous day sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
