Sunday Music in the Country

This last sunday Dh had a couple of friends over to play music with. He set up in the backyard and they commenced to having a good time singing songs, telling lies and tall tales while grilling some brauts and hot dogs. All the sudden the sky became dark and the wind picked up and rain came down.  All summer we have been having thunder storms with no rain but lots of lightening which has started numerous fires. So everyone covererd things with tarps and ran for the house until it passed over.

In spite of the rain we all had a good time. I made a blackberry and blueberry cobbler and a coconut pecan pie and Gail brought a cake so we had plenty of desserts and good food. The ladies played Phase 10 Masters while listening to the music. Needless to say I didn't win.

It's a good thing I took a picture of the peaches on our tree this year. The morning I was going to pick them to make some jelly someone had come in the middle of the night and picked everyone of them. So no peach jelly for us this year. Hopefully, this time next year I'll have a fence around the back yard and a dog. Maybe I can train the dog to take a bite out of crime.

Another Year Already

Why is it that when we are young a year seems to take forever to come around and the older we get the faster it seems to go by? Yesterday was my 66th birthday. Most days I don't feel that old and most of the time I don't act that old so even though I know it's true I still have a hard time believing the number.
Today the knitting and fiber group is having their meeting here and DH kindly made Famous BBQ so we should have a good time. For dessert there is Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Also as you can see on the game board  that I won the game. DH will tell you it's because yesterday was my birthday so he is taking it easy on me. He also gave me a Kindle Fire for my birthday which should be here in the next day or two.
