A Few Days Off

My days off turned out rather nice.

  I thoroughly enjoyed my outing with Deborah to the farm market on Thursday afternoon.

Friday morning, it poured buckets, but I was able to go out and do some shopping late morning to early afternoon and didn't have to take my umbrella out once.

 I managed to make some yummy chicken vegetable soup Friday afternoon and even remembered to buy a nice loaf of bakery bread to go with it. (Marco Polo bread, from Wegmans)

On Saturday morning I baked a Bread Pudding and 2 apple pies. A few of our kids stopped by to help stack firewood around noon.

Saturday afternoon we met up to help celebrate the birth of grandchild #7. Spencer will be one on Wednesday. Not sure how that happened so fast...

James had some work to do after church yesterday, so I drove home the long way, took a few cornfield photos, stopped for an ice cream (It was lunch and the last for the season...), and checked out a barn sale before heading home. Then I took a long backyard ride on the tractor/lawnmower. Cutting grass makes me sleepy, probably something to do with allergies. I had a hard time keeping my eyes open once I came in. While James watched the football game, I tipped over and closed my eyes for a bit.

It's back to work today.


  1. Glad you had a few great days off work...
    Enjoy your week!
    Linda :o)

    1. You too, Linda.
      I am still contemplating a north of the border escape one day...
