The Holiday Begins




My church group began arriving early Friday. Tents began to appear everywhere.


Lots and lots of tents.
The big meeting tent was set up by the barn. This maple tree is confused about the season. It has already turned colors and is shedding foliage!


Help has arrived! Deb has come to play store keeper......


She sure brought a lot of stuff! Just how long is she staying?


So far it has been a wonderful weekend. No big problems to deal with and everyone seems happy. Especially me! Deb came bearing food for the weary. First night we had chicken pot pie along with a wonderful spinach salad with blackberry dressing (I wanted to lick the bowl). She also had an oatmeal cake that was to die for.....and don't forget that oatmeal will help lower your cholesterol! Last night we had lasagna that I had made and frozen for this weekend. Deb made bruschetta with some great fresh tomatoes out of my garden....as Rachel Ray would say "YUMMO". And , of course we needed to eat some more of that oatmeal cake for our good health. We added a scoop of vanilla ice cream, you know, for the calcium. Health nuts, that is what we are!
All is quiet as the church folks are playing a little music and everyone is over there. I should be cleaning bathrooms. Instead I am baking an apple cake for today!

What a nice get together for the holiday. There won't be many more days of warm weather to enjoy such outings like that. Hope you have a good time.
