Don't these muffins look delicious? I took Bookworm and a friend of hers on a little shopping trip, and we decided to eat lunch at a new-to-us restaurant. When we first sat down at our table, our server asked us if we needed a while to look at the menu. I told her that this was our first visit, and we would need a few minutes. We enjoyed our meal and were impressed with the good service. When our server brought the check to our table, she also brought a take-home box filled with four of the biggest muffins I'd ever seen. She said she wanted to give us something special on our first visit--on the house! Wasn't that nice?

Finally...I'm getting around to an update. Our trip to Georgia was wonderful! It was so nice to get away for a few days. My hubby preached a revival meeting at a church in the Atlanta area. We stayed in a hotel for the week and took several day trips. Since a hotel room tends to get cramped with six people in it, we only took Bookworm and Lil Nut with us for this trip; Mickey and Curly Girl spent the week with their grandmas and had a mini-getaway with us when we returned to Florida. We had been looking forward to seeing our Eatonton friends for quite a while. We spent part of one day visiting with as many as we could. These folks kept our freezer stocked with garden-fresh produce while we lived in Georgia. Mr. H has a huge garden every year. They sent us home with several jars of hot pickled tomatoes. That might not sounds very appetizing, but the are delicious! Mrs. Cameron is very special to our family. Her husband is the one who passed away Christmas day following an electrical accident. She still has a beautiful smile on her face and has continued to serve the Lord faithfully since Bro. Cameron went to heaven. Our last stop was at the plantation our friends live on. Lil Nut spent some time on the swing with Mattie, her little red-headed friend. This is Mattie's baby sister, Mae. Bookworm didn't want to put her down. I sure miss those rolling hills! Some "old" friends made it to one of the revival services. Bookworm is pictured with Brittany. Brittany's parents, who used to be a part of our ministry here, are now missionaries with Wings Bearing Precious Seed and help distribute Bibles around the world. It was great seeing them again. I am already looking forward to our next trip to Georgia, even though we don't know when that will be! I'm thankful for the years we spent serving the Lord there and for the good friends He has given us.
