Betty and I made our annual pilgrimage to the peach orchard and found the most beautiful peaches we have ever seen and tasted.
This is what Betty is smiling about:
We always enjoy our trip to the orchard. We go first thing in the morning so it is cool and quiet with just the birds for company. Tasting is free, of course.
Plus we come home with treasures.
I made a short road trip with Nancy and Tammy to Strong City, Kansas. It's a tiny town in the Flint Hills with a wonderful restaurant called Ad Astra. They are known for using locally produced food and I had heard good things about it. We had an excellent lunch which we snarfed down before I took this picture.
Nancy ordered fried brussel sprouts and I can't believe I liked them after a lifetime of being brussel sprout-phobic. They weren't battered, just fried until crispy on the outside - yum! I tried making them at home but only succeeded in making the house smell like cabbage farts.
It was a beautiful day and the trip there was a pretty one as we drove through the Flint Hills. I love the round hay bales.
We stopped in Cottonwood Falls and saw the Chase County Courthouse which has to be about the cutest courthouse I have ever seen. It is the oldest operating courthouse in Kansas and was built in 1873. A little Kansas history for you.
When I went to our little Sedgwick Sewing group last week I was the first to arrive and found Virginia waiting on her front porch with her goose. She dresses that goose up in a different outfit for each season and holiday. It has a bigger wardrobe than I do.
No quilt pictures this post - I'm still working on Gail's quilt. I'll try to find pictures of a few quilts to include in my next post.
