Where are we today ?
clic a pic to enlarge itUp with the sun this morning and we had rain overnight (did not hear it). Did get a couple of walkabouts between showers. But finally stopped just after 9 am. Laundry day so Suzie sorted the loads and I headed into Arkona to let the machines do their magic. And while that goes on I can enjoy my e-reader in the sunshine and comfort of the car.
Back home for a light lunch and Suzie can put the laundry away, A pretty good trade I must say.
Right after lunch I whipped up the road to Thedford Juicy Fruit Orchards for some fresh picked corn. They do have some amazing products here when in season and as luck would have it they had White Corn, which we prefer when we can get it, But as long as it is fresh picked it is all good.
We were invited to a get together with 7 other couples that we see here at least once a year for a get together pot luck meal. Our donation is corn and fresh buns.
