It was a busy weekend! The grands came Friday afternoon and stayed until Sunday evening. They didn’t realize how cool the weather would be, so had to improvise when they wanted to play outside. Snow White is wearing the Christmas sweatshirt I made for her father 22 years ago, and Rose Red is wearing the one made for my husband.
They always beg to play games on our phones. They finally talked Auntie into letting them use hers.
Church made almost 400 pints of apple butter Saturday. Here’s hubby taking a turn at stirring.
Snow White helped Pa make bread.
Our son and daughter-in-law came Saturday evening to make supper for us. Delicious roasted chicken, roasted potatoes, arugula-spinach-fig-feta salad, roasted asparagus, mushrooms, and roasted garlic to spread on homemade rosemary bread. And they brought turnips and beets from their garden, and a box full of basil for me to dry for winter use. We had a great time, a wonderful meal and lots of fun being together. The past year has been full of extra joy and happiness having them so near. Hard to believe it has been almost a year since they moved here!
And Sunday afternoon, my dad surprised us by dropping by to visit on his way home from a work-related trip. It was fun to have the grands here to visit with him.
With cooler weather, I am looking forward to making more soups and stews. The menu this week includes ham and beans in the crock pot for Tuesday which is supposed to be our coolest day this week.
