A look back

I was looking at old pictures this morning and decided to share a few of them.
Some Christmas Parade watchers- Kay and Bill Stilson, Butch, Donn, and George and Shirley.

Appreciate our rhubarb. For those that are not aware Rhubarb is abundant in the north and cannot grow in warmer climates. Can you believe these prices?!!!

Summer Crafts

Marie Flood sent me these pictures of their summer craft projects. Looks like those fingers have been busy and very creative. I am guessing as quickly as one project is finished the next one begins and my own experience tells me that I am thinking of the next one while working on the current one. Click on the picture for a better view.

Banana Pancakes


Banana Pancakes
2 bananas-mashed
2 eggs
1/2 c. oatmeal
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt

Mix together all ingredients and cook as you would regular pancakes. After having made them, I think next time I will blend the ingredients and let it sit a few minutes before cooking.

They were tasty and I would make them again. A good way to use excess bananas

From Mary Knorr

Don & I spent an enjoyable Saturday night watching Mary & Dave "strut their stuff" square dancing with the Illinois branch of the international square dance group they belong to.  We thought our friends from Magnolia Park might enjoy these pictures of Mary & Dave in action. They are really very good!  Mary Knorr

Kay Voss makes Peony Jelly

Today I made Peony Jelly!  The kitchen smells like flowers....this was a first for me.  It has good flavor, can't really describe it because everything smells like flowers right now.  I used pink flowers, it took 4 cups of petals for these 3 jars.  Kay

Dove Nest

Doris Nelson sent me this picture of a dove nest just outside her kitchen window. Look close! They are difficult to find and what could be more perfect a spot for a dove nest.

White Deer

I saw this white deer which was with a brown one too, last evening. I took the picture across 40 acres so it is a bit blurry but thought for those of you who are not on Facebook it might be interesting. This is not an albino as it has dark eyes and a dark nose.
