Three Beautiful Things 08/05/15: Up and At 'Em, Ice Tea Lemonade, Wheaton Regional Park

1.  The corgis roused me out of bed around six o'clock, hungry, and I fed them and immediately took the rice I had prepared the night before and mixed in cucumbers, grape tomatoes, feta cheese, almonds, basil, olive oil, and lemon so that I would have a rice salad to enjoy whenever I wanted a meal or a snack during the day.

2. Not long after Ana was born, I took a gallon of ice tea lemonade to the Diaz home and Molly liked it.  The Co-op put that very product on sale this week for a couple of bucks a gallon, so I bought a couple gallons for Molly and delivered it today -- and spent some time shooting the breeze with Molly and Hiram.

3. I was on my way to the Wheaton Regional Park, within which sits the Brookside Gardens. I'd read about this area, but hadn't visited until today and I can add this huge acreage of trails, a lake, various gardens, fountains, wildlife, gazebos and other structures, conservatory, and gorgeous gardens to my growing list of nature reserves thriving in the midst of the D. C. suburbanopolis.  I took my camera and discovered I hadn't taken any pictures since late in June -- a trend I must reverse -- and here are some of the pictures I snapped during my over two mile walk.
