A Field Trip!

Oh me, oh my, J17 and I had an adventure today!
It involved a drive down the interstate under some rather ominous clouds.
 Then off the beaten path past some corn flattened by a recent storm.
 Where were we heading?
To a very special place:
 Yup, we went to the ice cream social at Miss Effie's Flowers!  We even got to see the famous tea cup tree:
I'll tell you, the homemade chocolate french silk ice cream was heavenly!  And I had a piece of chocolate lavender cake.  Mmmm.....
There were local artisans selling their wares.
 We picked up some lovely chevre and feta cheeses from Triple Creek Dairy, some goat milk lotion and J17 got some fabulous, funky yarn from Farm Genevieve!
And we took each others pictures in front of the famous barn.
 J17 even took my photo,  a rare occurance that I get my photo here.
A few errands later, we were home and J17 wasted no time on getting started on a scarf.
Isn't that the most fabulous yarn?!!  Hand dyed and hand spun.

Of course, I realized that we left today with out getting a photo of Cathy, the whirling dervish behind Miss Effie's.  But I'm sure we will meet again...
I don't feel that I got much accomplished today, but then, we have had almost 3 inches of rain in the past few days and it was still raining off and on all morning.  I still have TONS to accomplish but it was nice to have a day off for some fun.


  1. A day off was just what the doctor ordered. So glad you had a good time :)

  2. I'm totally jealous of that yarn! It's lovely. So nice to see your photo for once. :)

  3. D'oh! I didn't put two and two together that you were THAT Judy, THE "My Freezer is Full" Judy, until after you left! Next time I will introduce myself properly!

  5. Hi Judy,

    That looks like a super fun place!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
