four lovely women...

My four favorite women live around the country and every Monday they send me a snapshot from their little corner of this wonderful world. This is what's going on with them...

Seattle, WA - my daughter.
"Sopes with homemade refried beans, a little taste of home in Seattle."




Sedona, AZ - my mother.
"Went to Phoenix to test drive a Mini Cooper!"

Aliso Viejo, CA - my friend.
"Enjoying their rain boots"


St. Augustine, FL - my cousin.
"No matter how long or short the journey, it's always good to come home."


Let's all have a great week and don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Oooo, did your mom buy that car? I love Mini's... can a car be any cuter? Have a great week!

That's the latest model, the Countryman S All4 (not a typical 'mini'). I also drove the smaller one with the 'barn doors' at the back. Decided neither is suitable . If we should have 2 passengers in the back seats of either vehicle the back space isn't big enough for Daisy our Lab. We are keeping in mind the 'barn doors' model for when we need to replace our present sedan. In the meantime we are looking at SUVs smaller than our present Dinali.
Love the 'rain' pic!

I could do with a bit of that Florida sun here - it is a very grey day.

Stacey said...

Ooh the Mini Cooper! Love seeing those photos...and the rainboots, too cute, reminds me of my sister when she was little.

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Great photos! I would love your daughters recipe for refried beans- I am embarrassed that I buy the canned ones- I love to sneak them onto food my monkeys eat!

The rainy day photo is adorable- Have a great week!

Nicole said...

I've always wondered what those cars are like to drive!

lisaroyhandbags said...

great pics! I used to have a Mini Cooper in cream/black and I LOVED it! I'd love to get one of the new Mini SUVs! :)

Pam said...

What are sopes Jeanette,unfamiliar term here in Australia. Are they perhaps the Roma tomatoes or the avocado?...and how do you make the refried beans to home-made standard? Thanks for your visit to Textilosophy and contribution to Deja-vu, all very interesting!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Hi Pam, I'll send you the info on the Sopes and will have to post my daughter's refried bean recipe for everybody.
