Spent the Day in the Country with Friends - Old and New

God's country- no doubt!

1st time to ride in a "gator"?!?

The old school bus has served as s playhouse for kids.

Climbing on top of hay bales

Look at those silly dogs jumping hay bales, too!

We were at Linda's home. Fun!
She's a fun person.
Got her doctorate of education degree.
Was one of my professors -- and is friends with Nanny Carol's former hairdresser for 30-ish years, Cherry.
She's fun, too.

Dr. Linda - the country girl - is in the pic with the kiddos.

We tried picked eggs. 
Just think, those eggs are a year old
Sitting in vinegar and spices.
Again I say

Mom and I Ate Here Yesterday - With Educators and Community Partners

Our meals were paid for -- yay.
I was invited to an "education luncheon", and mom was my invited guest.
Special time....
Even the governor's wife joined us for our very southern noonday luncheon.

Kombucha Makin' Time

Starting to feel like the Baldwin Sisters on The Waltons.
You know...Miss Mamie and Miss Emily

Miss Molly and Miss Emily are no boot-leggers; however, they can whip up a batch of kombucha tea.

It's good for ya...
But then again, 
The Baldwin Sisters said their recipe was good for what ails folks.

She Fell Asleep Reading

I had just read a Bible story to Miss Mary.
The one where Jesus encouraged the little children to "Come" to Him...
how He touched them and welcomed them, made them feel loved --
and how we should follow His example.

Then I read a book about Tow Mater from Cars 2 movie.
I was reading our devotional to Emily and Molly when little bit drifted off into la la land.

This is Marlene's childhood book - that she passed down to us
** Mar is one of my besties. **
Her mama wrote Mar's name inside the book a long time ago.
Sweet memories, huh?
