 Yep.  Another amazing sunrise.
 After chores I drove down to the farm market to pick up a few things...
 (as in a dozen donuts)....

 which I took over to Finn's flag football game.
 He had a great experience today...smooth sailing.
 Made a touchdown with ease.
 Brothers and friends.

 When I got back to the farm, Jill was there with Ralph and Lauren.
 Belle did a little lunge work.
 Happy to get back out with her pals.

 Helen and Andrea were invited to dinner tonight, so I started working on it.

 Made Apple Betty for dessert.

 Set the table....

and went out to do chores at 6:30.

It was almost dark when I was finished.

 Helen and Andrea arrived around 7:45....and we sat down to dinner.
 A salad with pears, apples, grapes, craisins and crumbly blue.
 Meatloaf (again).
 Noodles...and crusty bread.
 The Apple Betty was a nice finish.
 Gary and the two English chicks were very interested in watching Masterpiece Theater on PBS.
 Gucci wanted to finish Helen's dessert.
 So nice that we could spend the evening together.


  1. I'll trade you some lasagne for a some of that apple Betty! Good idea, though, since our tree is loaded. Maybe a project for tomorrow...

  2. A beautiful whole day. Funny Gucci who wants to help to finish the dessert !
    The boys seem happy to be together to play rugby. I suppose they enjoyed the cakes much.
    Seee you soon

  3. Looks like a great week-end for ya'll. Yum, your dishes always look soooo good!

  4. Another lovely day...nice to see Sid on the scene!

    Delicious looking dinner...

    Bought some "20oz." apples at the market...Apple Crisp today.

  5. I've got football on the brain too, today. Played flag football too. Fun, fun, fun.

  6. Mm, mm, I made Apple Betty (Crisp), too. And once again, I say: you sure pack a lot in a day.

  7. I like the Cosmos, and that windmill in the tree branches.
