Ready to hit the road?
On our way we passed a hay field that had been recently cut.
As a treat we stopped for breakfast.
Then it was on to church.
Due to late evening thunderstorm Megan didn't go to sleep until close to ten. She was then awake at 6 this morning. We were barely out of the parking lot before she was asleep.
We decided to take a little drive so she could get in a cat nap.
I am a country girl through and through so we headed away from town. Our first sight was a couple of old barns.
Silos standing ready for a new harvest.
We've had a really wet spring and I was happy to see the corn is coming up.
Don't you just love a little country church?
I always imagine that everyone is super friendly and close. I bet their pot luck dinners aren't full of store bought items!
On the way home we made a quick stop for milk and to pick up a couple of other things.
I don't normally go to Wa*-Mart on Sunday and was surprised how busy it was. It is rare that Chuck is at the grocery with me. It gave me a chance to browse the bakery section while he ordered some lunch meat. I was shocked by the prices. About $3.50 for a dozen cookies! Yikes!
We hit the gas station next.
It is sad when any price under $4.00 makes me happy. :(
Then it was time to head home where Megan helped me with a few things in the kitchen.
She was suppose to wash off the strawberries and hand them to me to cut. A bunch of them never made it to me!
Next I got things ready for dinner.
Note to myself... set the frozen meat out before I leave the house.
I took some time to catch up on a news program that I had taped. Clip coupons and then I finished this weeks menu.
While I did that Megan was out in the garage with Chuck.
She said that she was playing school. Chuck watched the race and worked on straightening up the workbench.
Chuck fired up the grill and started dinner. My mom finds great meat deals on managers special. She is generous about sharing her great deals with us.
When dinner was cleaned up I stepped outside and blew bubbles with Megan. We then came inside and read some library books.
Megan ended the night with an ice cream cone.
Pink sprinkles made for a happy girl!
Vacation is over and tomorrow it is back to normal. I have Chuck's lunch ready and am looking forward to seeing the boys tomorrow morning. Megan has been talking all evening about what she is going to teach Abe tomorrow.
Megan is snuggled in bed sound asleep. I think that sounds like a great idea. I hope you enjoyed your peek at our Sunday.
I hope you are taking time to enjoy the simple moments!
