Our church switches to 9:30 tomorrow so not much lazy coffee time for me in the morning. My young friends, Ella and Dawson, came out to check their “crops” this morning but first Hazel demanded some belly petting and they were happy to oblige.
Then it was a stop at the barn where Dawson didn’t appreciate the smell from the manure pile outside – haha!
Everything we planted is up – 2 kinds of pumpkins, 2 kinds of peas and a row of radishes!
Our friend Anita from Kansas City coincidentally was quilting Wedding Day the same day I posted the original quilt. Her daughter’s bridal shower is in June so this isn’t quite finished yet.
The tulle was from Anita’s own dress – what a special gift! It’s so fresh and new looking – just like their marriage. Ours is somewhat faded – the quilt I mean of course! Haha!
While at the garden I cut some rhubarb and made this simply wonderful Rhubarb Custard Cake.
And here’s the recipe. I’ve seen it many times on Facebook and Pinterest.
Rhubarb Custard Cake
1yellow or white cake mix
4 c. Chopped rhubarb
1 c. Sugar
1 c. Whipping cream
Prepare cake mix as directed.
Pour into a greased 9×13 cake pan.
Put rhubarb on top of cake mix.
Sprinkle rhubarb with 1 c. Sugar.
Pour cream over the top.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
And why wouldn’t this be good?
Yesterday was the day Becky and I entertained at Concord and I wore these LOUD pants and a sweet t-shirt from my friend Les. It has a goat on the front – just how does that girl always know what I like?
Tomorrow evening Becky and I have a visitation to go to and we’ll all attend the funeral on Monday morning. Many of you remember when my cousin Chuck and his wife Tonya lost their 16 year old daughter to cancer over 10 years ago. Now his older brother Don and his wife Judy have lost their 49 year old daughter to breast cancer. And many years before all of these tragic events they lost their brother Tom in a car accident. Their dad Donald and my mom Hazel were siblings. We were a close knit group of cousins growing up in our small community. This will be a sad occasion.
So if I don’t get a blog post written Sunday or Monday, you’ll know why. The lawn is all mowed nicely this weekend but when the weather stays warm for a day or two, it will really grow since we’ve had our share of rain.
My golden girls say “have a nice weekend!”
