Loved the Social!

The dictionary says a social is a gathering of an informal nature.  Well!  We had a mighty delightful informal gathering here at the barn yesterday.  I had a ball!

The weather was blowing in from the north bringing happy cooler temperatures.

G surprised me with a celebration cake made by a sweet friend.

About 50 people came to celebrate with me… old friends, new friends, family, neighbors, and some blog readers I was meeting face to face for the very first time.  And the guest list spanned nine decades.  What a happy mix!

Guests showed up with treats to add to ice cream I’d been making all week… and every flavor was a happy success.

I couldn’t have been happier.  Thanks everyone!!

    Wish we could have been there. Have a prospective buyer for the Ruidoso house so we went up to make sure everything was in good shape.

    What a great time we had at your party. My bowl of ice cream looked just like that one you are holding in the photo. I had to try every single kind and they were all delicious!
