Finding Pokemon




There's a new craze going around. It's no longer finding Nemo or finding Dory. It's a game where you use your phone and go around everywhere and I mean  everywhere,  even in graveyards to find a "POKEMON"!

Yesterday started out quiet, hubby and I drove to our favorite State Park (FDR) and was about to have lunch nearby when I got a phone call from my grandson..he wanted to know if his Papa and I wanted to go to Indian Springs State Park with them. Of course, even if we were an hour's drive west of were they were, and drive another hour east to the park.

Now I love my grandkids and would do anything for them, well almost. Did I tell you that I LOVE my grandkids. We drove the hour to pick them up, well 3 of them, then another hour to Indian Springs. On the way we discovered the reason for this trip.....to find Pokemon's..yep...remember I said 'even in grave yards'..... I learned the night before they had my daughter,Susan, take them to the Confederate grave yard a few miles from their house.

  


My sweet Morgan, doesn't play this game so she and I spent time together talking and taking photo's.




Now Papa did go down to the well where people come to fill gallons of jugs with the spring water,that is known to be healthy for you. This is where the Cherokee Indians came in the past, many years ago to get their water.
Morgan and I didn't want to walk down the  flight of stairs.


The boys, JC and Joshua, did find a few moments from the game to have fun with these pipes left here from some construction work. Each got at a end and hollowed into it...fun for them for a little while then I drove them all over the park seeking to capture more 'pokemon's'.


The lake was down a bit from it's normal level.


On to another area nearby!
Dauset Trails Nature Center

Papa,Morgan and myself sat in the air conditioned car while the boys walked the trails, looking for pokemon's. You see they show up on your phone (game app) as you walk.




They would say "stop grandma,here's one"!!
Now it seems you should be walking to capture one, so I would stop or slow down to a walking speed. Oh I did say that I would do ''anything'' for them. I think Papa was getting a little tired of this,but on we went.

I drove them all over High Falls State Park which is only a few miles from Indian Springs but in a different County.


 Finally after 2 hours they said they were hungry.
We took them to Wendy's!  After hamburger and Frosty's, it was time to take them home.

We really did enjoy our day,after all you can't miss having fun with grandchildren!

And I did miss them! 
I even tried to get Morgan and JC to spend the night with us since their parents were off to Waco,Texas to celebrate their anniversary, and guess where they went.!!


Yes, that's Chip and Joanna Gaines!
If you watch HGTV you can't have missed there show "Fixer Upper".  My favorite show on HGTV. The show was there filming and they waved to them from the top of this building.  This is at Magnolia Market at the Silos..My daughter took this photo,and text it to us.  


Hope your Day is Blessed!

Peaceful Blessings







"To be blessed by the Lord...
To be Kept by the Lord...
To feel His radiant face
shining upon me...
To know His Gracious Grace
was being bestowed upon me...
To know the Beauty of His Divine
countenance beholding my face...
and to be given His peace, which
passes all understanding.

unknown Author 


'The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.' Lamentations 3:25 

Have a Blessed and Peaceful Tuesday!

Early Morning Visitor's



Love sitting on the porch early in the morning.
 While sitting there this morning I had a few visitor's.

My neighbor's cat always sleeps in our yard,it had just woke up when I came out to sit and enjoy the cool morning air before the heat of the day.



Every morning while I am on my porch, this squirrel  comes running down the road and up the tree in our yard, today it stopped to say 'hello'.


 I bring Madi out with me and she sits watching as the street sweeper comes. She doesn't like loud noisey trucks and usually barks, but today it went the other direction.



A bird flew up on the very tip of the tree, it's so light that it didn't even move the limb.








Have a Blessed Day!

Trip to Peach Farm





On Monday hubby and I decided to visited a peach farm nearby that we hadn't been to before. We picked up a friend to go with us, she is a recent widow and doesn't get out much. They sell ice cream too! I got a strawberry ice cream cone, she and my hubby got the peach cone.

Of course I had to get some peaches also. Yesterday I made a cobbler out of them. 

 After filling our bowls,this is all that was left.


Looks like the two of us ate a lot! We did!


Peach Cobbler is one of my favorite desserts and of course it is even better with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.






Here is my recipe if you would like it.

Peach Cobbler

1 stick butter
Sliced peaches
1 cup Flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup milk


Place butter (I use real butter) in baking dish at 350 degrees and melt .
Mix flour, sugar, salt together, add milk and stir well.
Pour into baking dish over butter. 
Place peaches in mixture but do not stir.
Bake 35 to 45 minutes at 350 degrees. 

When I use can peaches I use a large can. When using fresh peaches,I use 5 or 6 large peaches.

Enjoy and have a Blessed Day!
