My next door neighbor had her birthday today! She is 11.
Happy Birthday Pumpkin!!!
They had collard greens as a manager’s special, 32 ounces for $1.99, so, I had to make some yummy, and a little bit spicy greens.
Here are the ingredients:
8 tablespoons of butter (unsalted) – one stick
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pinch of salt
1 cup all purpose flour
Mix melted butter with the brown sugar, make sure it cools a little before you beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the salt and flour
Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

It was a great fun interesting day!

It is fall again, time for the Fall Festivals! My neighborhood had their annual one today. Friends and neighbors all around, a fun time for all! They had food from Rain (Sushi, Thai, Chinese, excellent food!) Marco’s Pizza and they were grilling burgers. Pizzas delivered by delivery and fireman.
Coop enjoyed his really big water bowl, didn’t even notice all the cans and bottles. They had a silent auction, raffles (that were obviously rigged, no I did not win) Zumba classes, a cake walk and a really old magician, who amused many young children! Zumba…
There was no keeping on the trail with Coop today. He loves to go on adventures and how lucky am I! So it was a gorgeous day and cool out. We started off the trail and it was headed down to the creek. Where we saw this and this…Another peaceful afternoon by the creek. Then back on the trail and off again. We rested on a bench. and listened and looked at all of this.
Camp Creek Greenway Trail is located north of Atlanta in Lilburn,GA.This is a great trail. This was at the beginning of the trail near the parking lot. Then a little further down the trail there were these There were three of these. Then if that isn’t enough then there was a Little Library. They have tons of benches to rest. The day was lovely and peaceful. I spied this little bird… I think it is a Tufted Titmouse.
