89 Degrees and just put this in the freezer!

It finally feels like summer! Yeah!!!!!! I just made a batch of Rhubarb Slush and it's off to the freezer. Wish I had it frozen already :)

I was outside this morning pulling weeds and picking the last of my first crop of rhubarb. I gave so much of it away this year because usually it goes to waste. I'm hoping a second crop sprouts up soon because I still wanted to make some jam.

I had a nice little birthday yesterday :) Dale and I joined some very good friends of ours for supper and drinks at the local pizza shop. Quiet night, but at my age......that's a good thing! ha

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm loving the 3 days off. Happy Memorial Day!

It's been years since I've run across anyone who had it to give away!
Maybe I'll get myself to Village Inn and have some strawberry rhubarb pie one day soon:)

Happy Birthday, Darla! It sounds like you had a nice day.

That Rhubarb Slush looks delicious! Winter officially starts here in a couple of days so I'm thinking that hot rhubarb and custard would be just the ticket right now. :)
