Yesterday's snow fell off and on all day...so I left the confines of my office at hubby's bidding...and joined him on a run to town for this and that.
It was rather wet snow...but oh, so pretty as it stuck to every twig and pebble it touched. It seemed our route took us right past the airport coffee shop...and it happened to be lunchtime...and so we stopped by for a wee bite to eat.
As luck would have it...our favorite tables were available...
...but it seemed there was no service on the patio, so we found ourselves an inside table with a view.
It was a rather quiet day at the airport...it seemed no one was flying anywhere. Most planes weren't moving...
...and those that were needed a whole lot of help. We had a lovely lunch...and a nice visit with friends from 'back in the day' who just happened to be on a lunch date as well.
The airport cafe is famous for it's home baked pies...and folks fly in from afar just for a slice.
As for me...I'd fly in for the spinach salad!
With one last glance at those pies...(we'll save room next time)...we left to make our obligatory stops for farm supplies, tools, batteries...and hubby's
new glasses. Things are looking much brighter now!
No sooner was I back home again...when I noticed I had guests coming across the fields for a visit.
place was the final stop on their snow walk . I thought I'd meet them with the camera...
...but soon retreated inside of the patio door as the snow balls came flying.
Ryder got a little impatient...and hitched a ride for the final leg of the journey.
With snow clothes discarded at the back door...we fixed a quick afternoon snack in Grammy's
test kitchen. Emme
loves pumpkin loaf...but it actually takes a long while to bake. But, after learning from Jill yesterday that waffle irons can be used for baking all kinds of delicious treats (not just french toast)...we mixed up a quick batch of pumpkin spice muffins...and in minutes we had our pumpkin waffle treats...hot off the press. Strange...but true...and actually quite yummy!
And that is how I spent my snow day! And here's the funny thing...exactly one year ago to the day, I also blogged my 'snow day fun'
. My memory may not be that good...but I'll always have an alibi in the archives of 'My Front Porch'!
Have a wonderful Wednesday...
