It Was a Good Morning

Guess what we got at the store yesterday? If you guessed a waffle iron, you are correct! M's 14th birthday is tomorrow and she's having a sleepover Friday night. She wanted to have waffles Saturday morning. Well, naturally, I can't do waffles for the first time in front of an audience, so we did the trial run this morning. Not bad. She also wants to make funnel cakes Friday night. I'm thinking the same batter: deep fried and topped with powdered sugar Friday night, then pressed and covered with syrup Saturday morning.

Speaking of morning (what a transition) this was how the sky looked this morning on our way to school. Rather a deadly looking variety of cotton candy, don't you think?

And last but not least, I couldn't resist posting at least one picture from Mr. H's trip. I love this bridge. If someone ever gives me a lake with a creek running into it (ahem) I want a bridge like this one.

Okay, maybe not last, but I just remembered this picture that I took last week and couldn't resist. Yes, that is a covered wagon on a trailer turning the corner. I believe the trailer immediately in front of us is carrying the horses or mules that usually pull the wagon. Hey, I wonder if this is the same rig I spotted getting breakfast at courtyard lane last week? Nope,I looked: different wagon.


  1. Speaking of the sky, did you know that contrails only show up a few days before it rains? So the next time you see contrails (today for instance) you'll know it will probably rain later in the week. Amazed by my knowledge?
