COTTAGE KITCHEN

In a well-furnished kitchen there are not only crystal goblets and silver platters, but waste cans and compost buckets---some containers used to serve fine meals, others to take out the garbage.
Become the kind of container God can use to present any and every kind of gift to his guests for their blessing.
" You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." Psalm 23:5

TRIP TO NEBRASKA...day 1

This is where we stopped for breakfast.











It was very foggy when
we left Wobegon at
5:00 am. Paul's family
loves casino's.
So once a year
we make the trek.
We were only in
there about
an hour(includes eating)










and when we came out
the fog had lifted.
I think next year I will have to
bring abook to read . The smoke
really affected my sinuses and
I had a hard time breathing.
My first visit to a casino was
when we moved to Minnesota
to help care for my
husbands parents.
(not really my thing)
I go along for support and to
hold the purse strings very
tightly. LOL








A few of the sites along the
highway. There was
definately more then just
corn fields to see.
I was happy about that
and the weather was pleasant.
Speaking of weather...
Where is summer??
We are only reaching 63 as a high today where we
usuallyhave 90. I thought we had global warming
It must have missed wobegon country.(Minnesota)



I thought this teepee thing was
interesting I am having a snack
so the look on my face is eating a snack.






We finally arrive at the Hotel
and then off to therelatives to visit.






Supper at the casino buffet.
Crab legs and prime rib.
Very good

Hey Alice,
We often drive down to the coast to Beau Rivage Casino to eat the buffet. It is wonderful fresh seafood and well worth the drive!
We never play the machines though.
I only blow money on books! :)
Hubby uses his blow money for fishing stuff. NEVER go off anywhere without a book! :)
