It's a good thing I got up pretty early this morning because I decided to take my special recipe for baked beans to our Relief Society luncheon. It took me all morning and I took it out of the oven just barely in time to get there on time.
On the first Tuesday of each month, our Relief Society has a great pot luck luncheon. We had a big turn out too. We celebrate all the birthdays for the month by singing Happy Birthday to all. It was really quite amazing what a big variety of food we had. That doesn't always happen, but that's the fun of it.
It's a good thing we had a bunch of people there, because Penny, our president, was in the halls and she came upon about ten missionaries who had just come out of a meeting. They were talking about how hungry they were, so she invited them all to come to our birthday luncheon. I never saw such plates as they piled on. They managed to eat pretty much all of it and it was so fun to have them there. It was all very much worth the effort and my baked bean went over very well.
It was a beautiful day too. So much sun and it was a bit over seventy degrees. It may be the last we will see the sun for awhile. We are expecting a cold front to come in tonight and it could get down to freezing. I hope not because I hate to lose any of my lovely plants. I guess we can't expect to have perfect weather all the time. But when I read about all the freezing and ice in the midwest and being cold almost everywhere, I feel very fortunate to be able to live in this beautiful desert where it is absolutely perfect for me, even in the summer!!
