And, I just made the spiced apple tea (very good) and forgot to mention earlier that I made the double-chip pumpkin muffins. I didn't have the cinnamon chips, but I substituted toffee bits. It's a huge recipe, so I froze most of them for Bible study at my house this week. I'm also going to try the makeover apple bread.
This past Saturday was the first Show Choir competition of the season. Norris got second in class B. It was quite respectable since it is practically impossible to beat Grand Island Northwest. They are the same size as Norris, but they always go over the top with their Show Choir. The next competition is the 31st at the Lied.
A fun thing for me at the competition was visiting with Mary Zimmer, a Norris alum who graduated with Annie, I think. She is now the music director at Pius and she just happened to sit down by us. It was fun to catch up with her and her family.
I'm going to add another "f" word to my list--feeding birds! (I'm trying to give some integrity to "f" words!) I just counted 10 goldfinches either in the tree or at the feeders. I want to thank Jeremy for thinking of me at Thanksgiving time and taking the time to go to the Wild Bird store and buy me a bucket of REALLY NICE bird seed. I had been neglecting the birds and he was feeling sorry for both them and me. THANKS, JEREMY. Your gift has been much appreciated.
This is getting kind of long. If I don't learn how to do pictures SOON, I'll probably lose all my blog readers!
Have a great day!
