As planned, Mary and I baked cookies. I have not baked cookies from scratch for 25-30 years. Mary hasn’t baked cookies, so it was a novelty for both of us. I picket some recipes for gluten-free cookies, but I wasn’t so happy with the result so I decided I would buy some from the store, if I could get a ride. We’re having 50+ guests so we need a lot of cookies.
Dad heard about my plans. So he talked to Mary and they offered to bake cookies today. I was busy with my weekly story so I couldn’t help. Here is the “Birthday Boy” baking for the party. And also some of the cookies.
Then came a call. My sister and her husband were going to work with their honey bees, to provide them with food for the winter, since they had helped themselves to all the honey. Mary and I wanted to see the procedure, but where would we hide from the bees? We situated ourselves in their greenhouse and had a view through the glass to take some pictures.
This was my little afternoon adventure after publishing a story about Mary Jones, the girl who worked six years to save money so she could buy a Bible. The verse for the day fits perfectly with my “adventure.” I’ll close with that. It’s way past bed-time and tomorrow is another day. Our “visitor” is on his way. We will pick him up in Gothenburg late tomorrow night. Next week I’ll have the story of our celebration weekend.
It’s Autumn here, but since there has not yet been any frost, some flowers are still blooming. I photographed this one while walking to the greenhouse. Enjoy!
