A Wonderful Visit with Friends

Saturday was a great day. Madonna and Jim came up from North Bethesda, MD and we spent some time chatting in the MH and then they took us to lunch. The are just so nice. Love these 2 people. We had a great visit. It's such a shame we don't live closer so we can visit more often. Madonna showed me a gorgeous afghan she is knitting for a gift for someone. Just incredible knitting, like a fisherman knit style. I'm not sure I'd have the patience to knit anything so large and involved as that. What a terrific gift this will be. It is really beautiful. Madonna is so talented.

I told Madonna and Jim about Shady Maple and they took a ride over and picked up some Whoopie Pies, Chicken pot pies, corn and apples.I asked her to send me a picture of them as I forgot to take one when they were here, (we were so busy talking) so here is their picture in front of Shady Maple.

Saturday afternoon David had some things he needed from a hardware store, so we had to make another trip to East Earle to Goods store which has a bit of everything, hardware, curtains, small appliances, dress fabrics, clothes, you name it. By then it was almost time for supper and we weren't that hungry for a big meal, so we made a trip to Lapps Valley Farm for some fresh homemade ice cream right from the farm.

A double scoop of butter pecan in a waffle cone for me and the same for David in a cup. YUM!!!!!!!
They were extremely busy even this late on a Saturday.

We came back to the MH and put Bentley out in his stroller so that he could enjoy the nice weather and fresh air. Well, I really shouldn't say FRESH air, just outside air as outside smells strongly of manure due to Sam's Farm across the street. Anyway he did enjoy sitting outside, listening to the birds flying overhead until---------------------2 big fat peahens walked across the lawn. They were just walking along eating out of the grass, having a great time. Bentley was thoroughly entertained.

Sunday we are planning to head over to Valley Forge.
