Hello, I have been very busy these past few days. Our son is moving, and we are cat sitting for a while, until he re locates. It took a bit getting used too her and visa versa. My Antique meeting/luncheon was good, and although it was my turn to just attend the meeting, I ended up doing the same as the past four years. The gal who was to start doing that job had jury duty, so once more I was it!! It all turned out quite nice, so I was glad for that. I took a day off of going to the senior center to give my grand daughters a lesson in pie crust/pie making. You can see the results in the above picture. They had fun doing the various steps, and loved it even more when they got to have a serving of the results!! "Ma" this is soooooo good when you get to eat the pie when it is warm!!!! Usually they get to eat it the next day. They liked it warm best. :-) My friend and I also took another friend out to lunch. She is now in a care home, and loves to get out once in a while, and we like getting to see her as well. So it was a good week. The weather has been a bit on the cool side, but we expect more hot weather next week. The summer is quickly passing by! Antique Rose

I have been a busy lady the past few days. I had two of my granddaughters over for five days. It was fun, we were so busy with talking, going to the senior center, as well as walking at the lake. My friend at the center showed them how to make swans out of apples, and they got to take the finished product home. It was very pretty, and they were impressed with the beautiful work. We walked around the lake several days, they enjoyed the ducklings as much as me, and took video of said ducks. There were lots of families and some were new born, others in various stages. The two miles went by quickly with chatter and lots of laughs. I went to the county fair with a couple of friends, while hubby entertained the grands with a movie and lunch. They had fun and so did their "Pa" This past weekend after they had gone home, my friend brought over a large box of fresh picked Apricots. So I made jam. I have made three batches, and still have more to do, have to get more sugar, so had to stop for the day. At the center another friend brought me some plums, so I will make a batch or two from them. Have them already and will do them on same day as rest of the Apricots. Busy, busy, but oh will it taste yummy on those toasts and english muffins come breakfast time. :-) We had a very quiet 4th and felt even more so without the grands. Never a dull moment with them!! They had fun with Ma's IPad and showed me how to work stuff, as they are always up on the latest stuff~~~~wish I was, but I do get a few things after awhile. :-) Anyway, that's what I have been up too, bingo tomorrow and next week Antique club. Taking a few days off from the senior center soon, my said grands want a lesson in pie crust making, now that's something I know a thing or two about!!!
