Unexpected, lollipops and comfort

- Flowers received unexpectedly. They were taken from a much larger bouquet and left in different places by silent visitors as a surprise.

- Taking the lollipops that had graced the table of my Highland Games Clan tent to work. It was fun to see adults walking around with lollipops and to see the flavors they selected.

- Stopping for a take-out dinner of southern food at Matthews Cafeteria on the way home. In business since 1954, it is comfort food at its best and always enjoyable because of the cheerful staff and wise cracking cashier. And delighted to see that they have my favorite Cherry Cobbler on this day.

Lollipops are great icebreakers!

Wasn't that nice? And I like the cherry lollipops myself. :)

That was just a yummy meal anyway. Like grandma used to make. :)

What a lovely surprise bouquet, and I'm sure it was amusing to see all the grown-ups with the lollies in their mouths. Cherry cobbler sounds so yummy. Cherry anything, mmmm...

You're so right, that good things happened :)

Meredith -

I think cherry is my favorite fruit flavor. And I just watch for simple things that make me or others happy - hence the blog name. Thanks for stopping by!

I bought some lollipops today to sell on Ebay.

Who doesn't like them? They must be so bad for the teeth though!

Glad you found another 3 things to bring you pleasure. :)

Nice to get flower gifts- I have to get my own-
I'm jealous of lollipops cause my teeth can't take the long-term sugar-erosion!
Love cherry everything- got me hungry again...

Snaggle -

I usually get my own flower gifts, too - that's why this was such a nice surprise.

I love to have flowers in the house, we have a wonderful international farmers' market near my house and when I go there I always pick up flowers.
