LAST FIFTH QUARTER OF THE YEAR

No frost this morning and a 36 degree temperature meant no damage to the fruits and blooms,thankfully.
I could definitely tell today was Friday with g-son acting like he took a grouch pill this morning.
After chores and breakfast I took a nice walk in the sunshine enjoying it while I can since the forecast for the next week doesn't have much sunshine in it.
I captured  this Green Heron having a bullfrog tadpole for his breakfast.
I was being observed from above by this Red Winged Blackbird.....
And from the side of the farm pond by this female Goldfinch as I walked around the lower pasture.
When my walk was over I baked 6 caramel, 3 chocolate, 2 pound and 1 wine cake before lunchtime.
I cleaned the kitchen and sunroom today while I waited for the last cakes to come out of the ovens.
I walked up to the barn to take in a dose of nice vitamin D and noticed this new nest on the rafters of the barn roof.
I didn't have to wait long for the builder to show up.
I wonder if this is the same Robin pair that nested under the nearby pole shed last year?
I had time for a short rest before doing the evening chores early so hubbie and I could go up to the church to grill hamburgers and hotdogs for daughter's youths fifth quarter.
Hubbie ran the grill while I worked in the kitchen getting the "fixins" ready.
A couple from church brought a fryer and made deep fried oreos and they were delicious !!
Here is daughter and a friend Missy.
There were lots of teenagers and they all looked like they were having a great time inside and outside at the corn hole boards.

They had lit a huge bonfire and sat up a smores making station  as hubbie and I loaded up the grill and came home around 9:00.
This has turned out to be a wonderful ministry for some safe fun on several Friday nights for all the local teenagers. Some of the adults tonight were wishing they had had something like this when they were growing up. Daughter goes to all the ballgames at the local highschool and has formed relationships with many of these youngsters. I think she has found where her heart is with these highschool age kids. At the end of the night they had  over 60 teenagers there tonight for the highest number of any 5th quarter this season.
I came home tonight and iced my cakes and washed eggs to get ready for market tomorrow.
Thanking God each day for the wonderful blessings and praising Him for all His mercies.
Good Night and God Bless.

Something you and I have remotely in common....my son has a food concessions trailer and he sells deep fried oreos and twinkies! lol You are involved in your church and its outreach programs, as we are. Would much rather these young people be doing these fun type things, than out on the road in a car or no telling where else! Hope you have a good market day.
