In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Today was a GREAT day!

Today was a great day!

First of all....
Mom made Apple Dumplings! 
 And I went off of my diet for about half an hour!
This is a fall tradition that she does for us and I love it.
We live in a little community within a city....and our little area had a
Community Dinner.
It was the first one and we went.

It was in this little church, which reminds me of "Little House on the Prairie." 
It was in the basement...(these people don't know I snapped this picture but I wanted to show you the basement area.)
 Everyone brought a covered dish and it was just like a family reunion.  Oh my...cheesy potatoes, green bean casseroles, pork roasts, baked beans, pumpkin pie, apple pie....and on and on.
 Here is the inside of the church.  Very Little House-esque (minus the lights and screen)
 Isn't it the cutest?
I even found out that one of my neighbors in town, is now a neighbor out here!  Who knew?

I took the Dixie Doodle for a walk last night and tonight.  My foot still hurts, but not as bad.  I did get the shot in it last week.  We went back to the Dr. today but I opted not to have the shot when he said it would probably hurt a lot more because it's going into muscle tissue.  I'm going to try to work it out on my own first.
While walking I noticed several of these bushes on our property and I think they're pretty.

 Close your eyes if you're squeamish! 
Whoops!  Too late.  That's my Shug's foot.  They took his old cast off today and took the stitches out.  He was so glad because he's been itching, a lot!
  And he got this nice new camo cast that the Dr. ordered just for him!
I got my hairs cut the other day and I've had three good hair days!  (with some effort!)

 That's all for now.  How was your day?  Tell me one good thing that happened to you today.

  1. My day was not as good as yours, I did do some cross stitch which for me is a good thing, but on Monday, I had a huge good thing a large nice tax rebate, so that will keep me happy all week.

  2. Ouch! Those stitches look like they are painful. The camo cast is fab! And I would definitely cave in to apple dumplings. Yummo!

  3. Love the hair cut Cindy! OUCH for the hubs, looks like it was painful. Love apple dumplings been years since I have had one. I am trying to stick to my new eatting plan but it is so hard in the fall when all the yummy baked goods start showing up that I love. I am down 15 pounds only about 10 more to go. To early in the day to give you one good thing that has happened but I am off to Bible study that started back up last week and I am so enjoying meeting with my church family each Wednesday morning again, so that I am sure will be my one good thing for the day. What an awesome question to ask us to answer!

  4. Hmmmm............well I got NO apple dumplings.

    1. Well maybe she made you some too. I don't know. Wish I could save you some but I can't.

    2. Or maybe she made some for you, but we are having them for lunch today. Hmmmm

  5. Cindy, You are so cute.:):) Ouch...the Suge 's ankle/leg looks like that was serious. Hope he is better. Wow those apple dumplings look so darn tasty...only a scoop of ice cream could make it any better.LOL. Love that quant church. Take care, blessings, xoxo, Susie

  6. Hi Cindy, I've only been out of bed about an hour, so I guess the fact that I've had time to sit here with a creamy cup of coffee an blog has been an enjoyment and a great way to start my day :) Cute hair cut and I love that you have community get-togethers. I bet this won't be your last. Communities where folks get together and know one another are far better places to live. Great quality of Life :)

  7. I finally put away my plumbing tools this morning. Though only two incidents were called for. things come in threes...will not use any plumbing until my bladder bursts...

    Good lord, that's quite a lot of feet healing over there! Eating Apple dumplings and going to church should exorcise those "demons" lol

  8. May you have many, many great days! I'm on diet now, so it's a bit hard for me to read about all those goodies (apple pies, dumplings)but I'll survive.
    Your hair looks lovely!
