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.

Geese

Fall must be quickly approaching Floyd.  The geese are back.  Lots of geese.  We counted at least 40 this morning on our pond.  They are very interesting to watch however they are quite loud.  I haven’t posted anything in a day or so as we have been really busy.  We went back to Jess on Monday and worked more on her bathroom.  It is started to look more like a bathroom now.    We were planning on going back tomorrow but they all have a cold so I think we will just stay here.  We went on a picnic today with good friends of ours at a little park here on the parkway.  We took the puppy so all the kids had a great time playing together(especially the puppy)100_2043

I wanted to show you this strange cucumber(yes it is a cucumber)  I raised it on the back porch in a large pot.  The plant did fairly well but this one is pretty strange.  I put some tomatoes and cucumbers in pots this year.  They did okay but required me to remember to water and I am not really good at this.  All in all though it was a good experiment.  Night has fallen here on the farm.  Katydids and crickets are making a joyful noise unto the Lord.  I think I will go out on my swing and enjoy.
