Not Enough Hours In The Day....

Splendiferous sky this morning.

 After chores Karen and I were out on a mission.  First we stopped at the farm market to pick up some donuts...
 Should have gotten some peaches.

 After that I got some gas and then we headed over to Ted's to check on the hay we are going to get.  He did two different fields and we had to decide what we wanted.

Got home and started on dinner preparations.
 Karen picked raspberries...I grabbed some carrots and chives.
 While I was at it, made some chicken soup from the broth I had left after par boiling some chicken.

 I must have been in slow, as by the time I got all the veggies ready for roasting I did not have enough time to get in a shower.  Thank heavens Karen did chores.

It was our monthly get together with Brenda, Al, Ann and Ron.  But this time we invited Sally and Judy.  We had quite a feast.
 I took a stab at making cauliflower Buffalo Wings and they turned out great.  The next time I am going to make my own sauce.  Served them with blue cheese.

 After starting off with shrimp (thank you Sally) and the "wings" we had grilled chicken, all those roasted veggies, loaded whipped potatoes (you outdid yourself Judy) and a fabulous salad by Ann.
 Brenda made Gary a beautiful carrot cake for his birthday...which was today.

 Good friends and good times.
Night all.
Hopefully our interview with channel 8 will be on the news in a few minutes.


  1. Happy Birthday Gary! It looks like you had a warmer day than we did. Rain all day and cool -- I had the wood stove going for awhile. I made stock with a turkey carcass I had in the freezer and we had turkey noodle soup for dinner. It must have been a good day for making soup!

  2. Looks like a fun day!

  3. No the light of the day is shorting up.

  4. Beautiful sky! Happeeee birthday, Gary. (Pic makes it look as if he has flowers growing out of his head. :))
