'Women Just Want to Have Fun Day' lives up to title

I hope everyone had a good time and learned a lot of new things at our Women Want to Have Fun Day last Saturday.

The day started out cold and rainy, but by noon the rain had stopped and it turned out to be a dry day. Although I wasn’t able to stay for the entire day, I heard that there were a lot of new ideas there.

The Fifty Club did a good job with the meal and had a lot of good desserts to go along with the soup they served. They deserve a vote of thanks for all the hard work that went into planning the day.

I hear the “S” word in the weather forecast. Can you believe that? I’m not ready for it; my flowers are prettier now than they’ve been all summer. I hate to see them go, but I guess it’s time. I did go out and pick some lima beans for supper tonight. There would be a lot more if they don’t get frozen before they develop.

I guess we can be thankful for the good season we’ve had this year. The farmers seem to be really grateful for all their bounty. I see a lot of grain moving up the road past here. I hope everyone is careful when they see the slower vehicles as I don’t want to hear of any accidents.

It is time to start thinking about winter meals. I like soups and muffins. I’m giving you some muffin recipes this week. Hope you like them. I like the refrigerator muffins that I can bake a few at a time and have fresh ones every day.
