Whoopie Pie

100_5596

The other day the girls and I made something new.  New for us anyway.  We made whoopie pies.  To my remembrance I have never even eat a whoopie pie much less made one.  It was very good though and I plan to make more.  I got the recipe from another blog http://holcombhappenings.wordpress.com/  She has so many good recipes.  We are getting lots of rain and wind today.  I was hoping for nice weather as we are going to visit my uncle today.  He and his wife live in Michigan.  They are down to visit her stepmother who is in a nursing home in Salem.  Salem is close to us so we plan on meeting them at the nursing home for a quick visit.  We wanted to meet at a little park in Salem but weather is not cooperating.  We will just have to visit somewhere else.  I am certainly looking forward to seeing them.  The last time we saw each other was about 10 years ago.  Much too long.

I thought you all might enjoy this picture.  Maple trees are one of the first to bud out here.  Another sure sign of spring.

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Memorial Weekend

I have no picture to post today.  I just wanted to let everyone know I was still around.  David is working on my computer this week so hopefully I will be back in action soon.  Things have been very busy here this past week.  We were blessed with a beef.  Billy had butchered him for someone and they did not want the meat.  He was an old bull-about 10 years old and weighed about 1800 pounds.  My friend Vicki and I have been working all last week to process it.  We are cutting some of the meat in chunks and canning it.  We are making hamburger out of the rest.  We are about half done (I think).  George and Quentin-Vicki’s hubbie-will be helping us tomorrow.  I will let you all know the total of cans and hamburger we get when we finish.  We went to visit Jess yesterday.  She is scheduled to have her labor induced June 7th.  Little Samuel will soon be here.  We took the cradle down and it is all set up and ready.  Just needs a little one in it.  Continue to pray for them.  We took the long way home today and stopped at a little picnic area.  It was very pretty with lots of overlooks.  We then stopped at this little store in Meadows of Dan and they were having a craft show.  Lots of cool stuff to look at, lots of new ideas for me to work on.  Of course, we took the camera case down to Jessica’s however the camera was not in the case.  So I have no pictures to show you.  Oh well, that’s pretty typical of me.  Enjoy your Sunday and God bless.
