Sometimes you find surprises
Just as I went towards it, it broke free and went bounding into the field. I was grateful for that, but the whole thing startled me so I didn't get any pictures!
This weekend, I got a few pleasant surprises as well. This weekend was the Batty Binder's October retreat in Palestine, Ohio. I didn't plan on going, but one of the members was leaving early, so they asked if I wanted to come up for the night. I also got a telephone call from my daughter. One of her friends was coming home for the weekend and my daughter was craving home-cooked food....and wouldn't I be willing to send some food back with her? I didn't really realize that my daughter liked my cooking so much. Yes, there are some times which I know she really enjoyed my food, but I think she sort of took it for granted. So...before I left for the retreat (hurredly throwing quilting stuff into a bag as well as getting some overnight stuff together) I whipped up terriyaki chicken, herbed carrots, garlic green beans, and curried rice. I also tucked in some frozen corn chowder I had made with the last of the market's sweet corn.
The most surprising thing? She called today and told me how yummy it was.
