1. Chad stopped by this morning for my Carrot Cake recipe. He was baking one for Chelsea's birthday.
2. B. gave me this recipe for turkey meatloaf and it is delicious. I planned on serving four for dinner, but two and then three more plates were set as unexpected kids and friends arrived. I had exactly the right number of little, individual loaves to serve everyone.
3. The young folks invited us to the birthday party, which conveniently took place at our friend's house just down the road. (In the country, we consider 4 miles to be in the neighborhood.) There was a big crowd of the kids' friends, Chad's Carrot Cake was perfect and we didn't feel old at all.
