mr. two sticks of butter

i went against the rules
Only pick recipes that call for a stick of butter or less
BUT mr pumpkin cake bars, I could not resist.
I oooggled eyed you and dreamed about jumping in a pool of you for long enough.
so I took the plunge and made these.
worth every bit of two sticks of butter
happy fall treat!

Saturday we took a road trip up to sleeping bear dunes.
It was so pretty and fun
We hiked up a dune [out of breath, gesh]
Took the scenic drive
Walked through the cotton trail
and stopped in Glen Arbor on the way home 

This one is for Allyson! :)
It was delicious!

different friends today

My banking friend from Mercantile was using a Huntington ink pen today.  umm TRAITOR

A true friend is one that stands in her kitchen in a tshirt and under ware :)

A bad friend is one that forgets birthdays!  shameful.
sorry so sorry

A wise friends once told me that getting old is for the birds....possible spotting of a spider vain.  27 and over the hill.

i pass you almost everyday

I talk about how beautiful you are with others
I dream about your front steps
I visit many church's like you in others cities, states and countries
I never take time to stop and visit you
Yesterday was the day
I had time, so I stopped
I walked around and admired
I decided to let myself inside for a personal tour

Yes St. Mary's Church
you are beautiful
you are a little treasure right down the road

civil duty

today was the day.  jury duty day.

9am I walked down to the Courthouse.  Checked in.  Played on my phone, read, and watched the Today show until 10:45.

Then excuse me ladies and gentleman

You have all performed your civil duty, there is no jury needed today.  You are free to go.

and what rang through my head

called work and best boss in the world ;-) said, no need to come in.
again what rang through my head

And what a beautiful October day it was!
