I knew Barb would not be here this morning....at 7 am her barn was being started.
I breezed through chores and mowed the front paddock.
Then...I went over to Barb's. It was a little after 9 and I was astounded by the progress that had been made.
The building was Amish made and they were putting it together on site.
I did a couple of errands and went back over around 2pm. By then, the roof was on....
and the stalls were taking shape. After I left, they put in two skylights and tomorrow they will shingle the roof (maybe they got that done too). Barb must be so psyched!
Back home and had trouble loading photos. Finally got that straightened out.
Gary went to a Duck Derby meeting and I did chores.
Judy and Randy invited us to dinner...got down there around 6:30.
They live in this dollhouse during the summer months and spend the rest of the year in Florida.
The gardens are beautiful.
We dined on their screened in porch.
Started off with cheese, mango craisin chutney and a fabulous onion dip.
Lemonade with fresh mint.
Then we had a big salad...
and some homemade (from scratch) pizza.
Judy is the most talented cook I know...baker too. She and Randy are vegetarians and she makes such creative meals. I wish she could cook for me everyday.
As if that wasn't enough, she made these "donuts" just before she served them and we had the option of drizzling hot fudge or fresh rhubarb sauce on top....whipped cream too.
A Gatsby kind of evening.
Home by 9:30...Barb had already put the ponies in.
