Sunday, June 10th, we welcomed at least one hundred thirty visitors the three hours of the Open House and were sorry we couldn't spend more time with each one. There were many highlights: Stephan's ice sculpture and his catered spread were amazing; the pastors' prayers and the many wonderful comments; my mother was able to come! And many more. The event was so special and meaningful that our son Stephan suggested we do this every year!
One grandson asked to stay overnight. So Monday we enjoyed a special breakfast, if you like
|Breakfast mice, tails and all!|
Stephan put together another wonderful meal from some of the left over food from the Open House: bruschetta, ceviche, lox, fruit soup.
Tuesday morning Mike said, "Wanna ride to breakfast." "Okay."
Notice who took the shadow photo this time. We stopped to admire the wheat fields 'white unto harvest'.
Wednesday we had two important meetings, one in Marion and one in Indianapolis. After that we were hungry and tried a new eatery. Can you guess?
We decided next time to order only one hamburger and one order of fries. Great food!
Thursday morning, a repeat of Tuesday, "Wanna ride to breakfast?"
The corn is already waist high!
Friday noon we were invited to attend the 2nd annual “Our Small Towns-Thinking Regionally” conference to hear Stephan speak. He had set up an ice sculpture. We thoroughly enjoyed all the speakers we met and heard and especially our son's presentation!
Saturday I attended another community event, Think Outside the Barn, at Victory Acres with an interesting array of very creative vendors, artists, craftsmen/women, workshops, and tours.
I went to one of the workshops and learned how to make a delicious smoothie using greens, like the ones I pick up every week as part of our membership.
Then, I gathered the goodies I purchased and my allotment of produce and went home to prepare for special overnight guests.
