For JNW’s color challenge, I saw the persimmon color here and there all week, funny how that happens.
Here I will share a few….
First, some sweet winter peppers (a large 2 lb bag for $4.99- nice).
And… some fruit and nut bread from TJs – with some persimmon colored fruit (apricot maybe):
My husband made Irish Nachos: Potatoes, japs, nitrite free beef sausage, and “persimmon colored” cheddar cheese. It is a recipe that bassist Billy Sheehan tweeted:
And this orange chicken from TJ’s also had a persimmon tone…. slightly:
But my favorite thing that was persimmon this week – was the Shutterfly box that arrived in the mail, with a memory book for our neighbors,
Sorry to end this post on a sad note, but last summer, one of our neighbor friends passed away.
His name was David, an 18 year-old athlete, who was playing in a baseball tournament down in Florida. I guess he had a preexisting heart problem that they did not know about, and that combined with the heat one day… and well – so tragic!
I have a handful of photos from many years ago – and when Shutterfly had a special on memory books last week (free book – just pay shipping) I decide to make an 8 x 8 memory book for David’s family.
And when the persimmon color box arrived – here is what it looked like:
In closing, David’s story is just another reminder for us to ALL to “be in the now”
Let us all take a deep breathe and appreciate this day for what it has.
Let’s appreciate the very gift of life –
even with any gunk, junk, or funk –
We really don’t know what a day may bring forth….
so enjoy your day, enjoy this very hour.
