⚑ ⚑ ⚑ ⚑44 degrees this morning and sunny for my walk around the Farm Loop and one of the cemeteries and then around town a bit.
I know I've taken this picture of the barn I walk past before, but it is one of my favorite spots I just couldn't help taking and posting another one.
Just past the barn a woman was standing and she started talking to me like she knew me but she didn't seem familiar and then she said, "I wont' be driving past you today." Then I realized it was the woman in the red car who waves to me almost every morning.
Farmer Bill was watering some plants and I snapped this picture before he saw me. I stopped and we chatted a bit.
What a beautiful morning to be outside. It doesn't get any better than this.
I walked 6.2 miles.
⚑ ⚑ ⚑ ⚑Last night at church Pastor and his wife Kathy invited us over their house with a few other couples for a BBQ today. When asked what I could bring she said a dessert (She knows I like to bake) so I baked some Mint-Filled Brownie Cupcakes this morning. A new recipe for me. You can get the recipe HERE.
They have a peppermint patty in the middle of them. You can see how it's done by the picture.
Baked and ready to eat.
Ken went up to Happy Trails for a while and I stayed home getting a few things done around the house.
We left at 3:15 with cupcakes and cookies in hand to go to the BBQ. We had a wonderful time. There were 12 adults plus a few kids. Lots of good food, conversation, laughs, a few games of Corn Hole which I played for the first time today. You have to toss bean bags into holes in wooden things. You keep score kind of like horseshoes. It was a lot of fun. You can see the wooden things in the picture. The weather was perfect and they had a nice shady back yard. Oh by the way the cupcakes were a hit.
happyone : )
