What a fun day Grandpa and I had. The first picture Grandpa took when he went to the tractor parade in Garrettsville. Garrettsville was trying to set a new record with the most tractors ever in a parade. I'm not sure if they did it but Grandpa said there were a lot of tractors. The picture is of our friend and neighbor, Bob Maynard, with his John Deere tractor.
Grandma went to her good friends 50th surprise wedding anniversary party, Becky & Bub Miller. The second picture is of their cake but the real hit of the party was the rum chocolate cake Becky made. She got the recipe from the islands when they went on their cruise. I have to say it's the best chocolate cake I have ever had and I have had a lot of cake in my years. Becky did say she would share the recipe. YUM!
The third picture is the Happy couple, Becky and Bub. Congratulations!
I also met Cara one of the blogs I follow. Cara will be a senior at Akron University this Fall. Cara's blog is (Dust of Everyday Life) if you would like to check it out. She is a cutie. I should mention Cara is Becky and Bub's granddaughter.

Our kids are coming today to celebrate Grandpa's Father's day. I have a big roaster full of Swiss steak and I'm trying out a new recipe called Glorified Hash Browns Grandpa found in a Taste of Home magazine. I just hope and pray everything is eatable.
I'll let you know how all turns out.

Today was a wonderful day. First Grandpa and I went shopping in Middlefield. ( I bet you are wondering why we go shopping all the time) I'm wondering that myself but I don't turn down the offer. We stopped at the cheese factory and Walmart. Ka Ching!!! It never fails how we can fill up a cart and just have a few things on the shopping list.
Laundry is all done, Home made potato soup for supper and worked on a quilt this afternoon. Now I'm just waiting to pick up my Amish neighbor from the Laundromat.
I love when I have a day feeling like I got something accomplished.
Thanks for looking in and reading my blog.

Beth if you are passing by stop in and have a snack. I'm sure it will be Rhubarb Something.

The rest of today I worked on an applique quilt. It actually is coming along pretty good. But the highlight of the day is when the UPS man came and brought my fabric for my next project. ¶ OH HOW HAPPY I WILL BE.

Just received a phone call from our daughter to come over for a cookout. So Grandpa and I are on our way. Always love to see family.

It's that time of year for Graduation Open Houses. I went to one today that has an amazing story behind it. The boy's name is Shayne and he has a brother that is serving in Iraq. His brother was able to come home on a 3 week leave. Shayne's Father who is in his 40's had a heart attack Wednesday night. They life flighted him to Akron General where they did surgery that night. Now for the Blessings:
Shayne's brother home from Iraq:
His Dad came home from the hospital this morning and was greeting people as they came to the open house graduation party.
It's amazing of what the power of prayer can do.
As a side note: Shayne's mother was at our ladies meeting Wednesday night. We all put our names in a basket and drew one out and that was the person who we would pray for. Welllll! I drew Shayne's mother's name and started praying for her that night. Little did I know of all that was going to happen. God Knew!!

As a side note I couldn't believe how gas prices jumped up overnight. It was $2.89 here in Garrettsville.
The weather today is beautiful and I enjoyed coffee and homemade cookies, our Amish girl made for us, this afternoon on our porch watching the baby robins in their nest. It's just amazing how the birds take care of their youngens.
Well, Off to Cal's we go.
