Got an early start this morning as daughter brought her baked goods by on her way to school at about 7:30.  She has been busy with all the baking she brought in today.
I got ready for market and got there a few minutes early but business was pretty slow to start the day.
I did have a decent day as the flow of customers did pick up as the day went on.
I have more apple cake varieties this time of year to go with my regular layer and pound cakes.
I was decked out in my apple vest for the occasion today also.
There is always an apple display competition and this is our entry this year as we decorated one of our old wood cook stoves.
During market I got a call from my cousin from Texas, Kathleen, who usually comes in this time of year for her mother's side of the family reunion.
Her and Paul, he husband flew in about noon today and Patti her sister and her husband, Bruce are driving down today from Ohio. We all agreed to meet at Outback Steakhouse for supper at 6:00 tonight.
After I left market I did the weekly errands and picked up baking supplies and groceries at Sav Mor, Aldi and Walmart on my way home.
I got unloaded about 4:30 and then took some things I picked up for Rebekah over to her house.She is not feeling well at all today and was trying to get her baking done for the apple orchard stand.
I came back home and did chores, then changed clothes and headed out to meet Kathleen and Patti.
We had a wonderful dinner and visit as we talked away for 2 full hours.
We always have such a great time together when we see each other.  They are considering putting their land they own here up for sale.  It is part of the old home place of my grandfather.  It is landlocked up on the side of a steep mountain.
I will see them once more before they leave when they visit me at market Saturday.
Back home I caught up on my blog and took another cake order.
Thanking God for a wonderful day.
Good Night and God Bless.
