Hodgepodge Day

Happy 4th of July!  Another gorgeous day - sunny and warm, and next to nothing on our agenda!  

We went for a walk this
morning and came by Don Price, who was out painting their house.  He wanted us to be sure to know that Julie, his wife, has been out just as much as he has, working on this big project!

I tried another new recipe today, for Pear Bread.  
An absolute hit!  Nice and sweet, moist, and the house smelled AMAZING.  This is one I will definitely make again very soon, and make into mini-loaves in order to freeze and just have a small amount at a time!  It actually worked out really well this first time to make two big loaves, as we headed over to John & Cheryl's house this afternoon for a cookout, and it was the perfect thing to bring to share!  Jane & Abi Whitford, Lincoln & Ann Brunner & their girls, Derek & Kari Leonard & their boys, Loraine Erickson & her boys, Erin Huffman, Mike McGuire, Mike & Melissa and their son all made an appearance at the Jordens, and we had a great time visiting, jumping on the trampoline, playing games, etc.  Afterwards a number of us drove out to see the Amherst fireworks, as Stevens Point is waiting until tomorrow for theirs (I know, we don't get it either!).
