It was a long day of driving, and the wind was blowing from the north, causing crosswinds as I drove east on I 70. Miles and Miles of Colorado and Kansas clicking off the odometer...around 500. Me and Paddy, my dog, stopped several times to rest and get gas, so it took me over 9 hours. I was so glad to pull into Manhattan!
This week I'm staying at my sister Denise's house. My camper will be parking in their driveway. Today I'm pretty tired, so I even took a nap, and I don't usually take naps at all. :)
Mom and Dad have a huge old english apple dumpling in the canner for dinner. It takes 3 hours to boil it. 10 apples peeled and sliced, cooked inside a dough. boy oh boy...it's a treat when we have dumpling! My grand-mother and her mother and beyond have made these dumplings since before they immigrated from England. yum...I can't wait for it to come off the stove. :)
The weather is beautiful here. Temps cooled off from the awful heat they had all summer....guess I brought Fall in with me. lol
Here's a few pics from the drive yesterday.
I got a pic of this sign as I was leaving Colorado, then missed the Welcome to Kansas sign.
Glad I'm here! Fun and adventures await. :)
Some pics of a previous Apple Dumpling
And that's what's for dinner.
