When Troy and I drove up to the cabin, we took our time and stopped here and there along the way,
Our first stop on our trip was Spicer Orchards. I have to say, it really feels like you are kicking off a Fall season when you stop at an apple orchard!
We walked around and enjoyed all the wonderful crisps scents of apples, peaches, berries and of course fresh donuts being made.
Next stop was the Cheese House. This is as bad as walking into a fudge store for me. I think my favorite food is cheese. And I love all kinds
We tasted several different flavors of aged cheese and then of course bought a few things to nibble on while driving. Let’s just say fresh cheese curds make me smile!
The next stop before heading back into the cabin was a old flea market. I remember when this place was a drive in theater. We hit the market just as they were closing. An adventure trip is never really successful unless I get to do a little thrifting!
I saw this old pitcher. Oh, she had seen better days but, I couldn’t let her just sit on the counter and nobody buying her because she was chipped and discolored. For $1.00 she came to the cabin with me.
I gathered up some wildflowers, pine branches and some ferns and gave her a home on the farm table in the kitchen.
As I walked around the cabin gathering pretty wildflowers I was completely flooded with memories og doing the same thing when I was a little girl.
I can hear my Grandpa calling out to me, “What are ya doing pretty girl?”
“I’m picking flowers for Grandma so she can put them on the table.”
He would help me find flowers around the yard. And I would be so excited to bring this big bundle of all the pretty treasures I found to my Grandma.
She would always find some old chipped glass or container of some kind and fill it with water and put my flowers in it.
Perhaps not the prettiest or most perfect flowers but, they made me happy and they made my grandparents smile.
Thank you for stopping bye and I hope you are having a beautiful Sunday!
