Our Trip East

 

Hello!
I have been MIA getting things tied up
and other things organized so I could
return to school knowing that I got
some things accomplished this summer.
Another post on that soon.




 Last week I gave you a sneak peek of our
vacation. So we left Kansas and headed
North on I-35 towards Des Moines, Iowa.
Stopped for lunch here. Great food and a
fun atmosphere. After lunch we got back
on the road and headed East on I-80.


We made an unplanned stop here. Now,
I ask you: "Who could pass up stopping
at a place with this title? "Well, not us!!
They are not kidding, this place is HUGE!
Two floors of retail and food the third
floor was for the truck drivers to find
some respite from the road.
We had soooo much fun here plus it
was good to get out and move around.
 
 
Here are more pictures of the delightful
storm we drove through in La Salle, 
Illinois.



Mr. Ken loved it but a bit worried, of
course he didn't tell me that until we
drove out from under it.
 
 
FRIGHTING!!!!

 

Waiting for the train to go into THE
WINDY CITY.

 
Pictures of the big city. The L.

 
Signs, signs everywhere signs.



 Solider Field, home the Chicago Bears.
We are riding in a cab, so I had to take
the pic FAST!!! : )


One of the awesome views of the city.

Stay tuned another vacay post coming
soon.

Wednesday Write Up

 
 

Hello!
Hope you are having a wonderful
Wednesday!


Popping in to let you know Mr. Ken
will be heading out on an adventure
soon. I won't be blogging for a bit but
will post as soon as I can about our
adventure.

In other news I'd like to WELCOME
my new follower Pam. It's nice to
have you here at Dreaming!



I had two requests for the Pickle recipe:



Refrigerator Pickles

3 nice size cucumbers, peeled and sliced
1 C sugar or Splenda
1/2 C vinegar
1 C water

Mix together the sugar with the liquid
ingredients (well)
Add cucumbers, mix together
Seal and put in the fridge- 2 hrs

That's it! Enjoy!

I have made these for several years and
have changed things up . This year I
added approx. 1/4-1/2 tsp of dried dill to
them. Of course you could use fresh.

I have added (other times)
Red pepper flakes
Cracked pepper
Onions

It is a very versatile recipe.


See you when we return !

News, News, News

 

Hello everyone,!
I am happy and proud to say
that TOMORROW is my 9th
Blogversary! Still plugging away.
I am sooooooo thankful for those
of you who still come by for a visit!

 
Mr. Ken and I went to a local Farmer's
Market and they had these sculptures in
the green space, well you know us we
couldn't resist goofing around before
purchasing our goodies.

 
We have had some beautiful sunsets
lately. I captured this one coming out
of a store.

 
My friend Nancy and I went to a Scrap-
book Expo, don't do much with my stuff
but I do use the paper and stickers at
school. The paper makes much nicer
letters for bulletin boards than plain
construction paper.



 We put our names in for some drawings
AND we both one. Pics above and below
are the goodies I won very excited!

 

 
Took Mr. Ken on a country adventure last
Friday. Didn't tell him where we were going
OR most importantly what we were going to
see. Thankfully GPS got us there. I don't
always trust it though.

 
A friend had posted on Facebook some
pics she had taken of her daughter here
and loving Sunflowers as I do I had to go
see them. So when Mr. Ken got home off
we went. Lot's of fun!



This morning I made these for Mr. He
loves the Refrigerator Pickles on the right
and as an experiment I tried a version of
the same recipe with fresh carrots.
Very early on in blogging, I got the recipe
for the Refrigerator Pickles from a blog
friend and have made them every summer
since. It is sooooo easy to make and does
not require the "canning process." plus
they are never around very long.  ;)

If you want the recipe let me know.


I will pop in briefly Wednesday with more
news, stay tuned.
