Sunday Snipets

I WON! YEA!!!! Mary Ann Miller at HANDCRAFTED BY MARY ANN had a drawing for Sugar Pie Pumpkin Seeds and guess whose name was drawn. ME!
These little pretties were picked up at a garage sale
for .50 a piece and the runner was only $1.00! I
got 20 little doilies --there were multiples of some
which will be nice. I also picked up three aprons
too, one of which was a children's apron. No
pic--I forgot.
This beauty was on the table a the country church
dinner that Mr. Ken and I went to today with his
Dad. If anyone knows what this is-please let me
know. My father-in-law said they grow from little
black seeds. The flowers themselves look like
velvet. Really pretty!
THE most important part of this outing was THE
FOOD! Those ladies (and guys) sure know how
to cook! On the menu one could have ham or
turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet kraut home-
made noodles, dressing and green beans. PLUS
PIE. YUM! YUM!
As we were driving to the country church we saw many
barns and farms. I was able to snap some while Ken
was driving. Here's the first complete with a Silo.
Here's the second--outbuilding on one farm.
Number three--barn, outbuilding, home and pasture.
I love farms and barns. Can you tell?
On the way home we stopped in a small town called
Louisburg--they were having Cider Fest. Ken's dad
wanted to pick up a bushel of apples to make apple-
sauce! Oh, goodie. :) The cider mill is famous in
these parts for of course the CIDER and their
APPLE CIDER DOUGHNUTS. See those
morsels below. Yep that's them!
APPLE CIDER DOUGHNUTS!!! These are best
eaten WARM but they are good room temperature
too. ~Keep on Dreaming~

  4. One of the advantages of having OCFD is that I know the names of many flowers. The flower above is called a cocks comb. It does come in different colors but the reds and pinks are dominant.

    Ohhh, I haven't had apple cider donuts in ages.

    Have a wonderful Monday and God Bless!!!
