Make Mine a Double!


It's been a tough couple of days around here.  As many of you know,
my husband's cousin was shot and killed by an intruder into his home
just after midnight on Tuesday.  We are still in shock and feeling such
a loss and so much sadness for his wife, children, grandchild, parents 
and siblings.






We need a bit of comforting during tragic moments like this.
Nothing like a cozy quilt and a dish of ice cream.  I am wondering ...
should I serve up a dish of ice cream in this size bowl?



Or this bigger bowl?




One scoop or two?




Better make it a double.  It's been a rough few days.




If you ever come to Idaho, be sure to pick up some Clover Leaf Creamery
ice cream.  It comes in strawberry, vanilla, chocolate and the best ever
butter pecan.  It's yummo isn't it Bentley?

Linking to ~


Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  15. I'm shocked, and so sorry to hear about this tragedy in your family, Susan. Your beautiful pictures belie such an awful event. But the comfort and beauty you share here is exactly what I come to the blog community for. I admire your will to keep sharing the beautiful side of life while you deal with such pain. My blog is my refuge too. I see we chose almost the same topic today! I love your pretty quilt and dishes and painted picnic hamper with all the other lovely details. It's the perfect time of year for it. Surely it helps soothe your soul. I hope so. Blessings to you and your family.

  20. Susan, I am so sorry for your loss. This kind of tragedy is double hard to take as you can never understand how anyone could be so selfish as to take the life of another so senselessly. My prayers go out to your family as you work through your grief. Peace be with you this weekend and in the coming weeks, Nan

  28. Susan ~ I am so sorry that you and your family have had to go through this. My prayers are going up now. Tell David the Lord's arms are wrapped around him and his family. Just listen and wait. There will be some healing ~ it may take some time. I cannot imagine going through anything like this. Prayers are definitely going up for the children ~ such innocent babes. No words my friend ~ no words ~
    Have four scoops and I'll have two for you and David. ~ take care and rest in him ~
