I like Apple strudel, pie, cobbler, and plain uncooked apples cut up for eating. Peaches are ok, not my favorite fruit. I do love pineapple! When I was a kid I would usually get a whole pineapple as one of my birthday presents.

Most time the lights are in the greenish range going to yellows. The blues and reds are a bit more uncommon.

I don't make cobblers but usually in the fall I make apple or apple/rhubarb crisps. I use my biggest baking pans and after baking and cooling move it into 2 serving containers and freeze them.

Donuts sound good. More of a soda or Gatorade drinker.

I like coffee with some sugar and French vanilla in the morning, and sometimes Dr Pepper in the afternoons! Sneaks in several boxes of Krispy Creme donuts!

Krispy Kreme are ok as long as they are still hot and fresh. We used to have one around here but I think it went out of business.

I use 1/2 tablespoon of a Starbucks Caramel Machiatto creamer in my mug of coffee. That gives me 20 calories per mug x 3 mugs per day. Trying to watch my calorie/sugar intake.

The kind of biscuits I like are from Pillsbury! They have layers that I like peeling apart! Growing up, my bio mom would sometimes make soup and serve Pillsbury biscuits and honey.

Thanks for mentioning something to drink, Ginny. I rarely drink anything at the same time I am eating so I may forget that a lot of people eat and drink at the same time. Also a good idea to add the "blonde" brownies!

You are welcome, I sometimes need to wash down something I have eaten, for sticky stuff likes ito get stuck to the back of my mouth once in a while. I didn't know what they were called, but I tthought all should enjoy this. Kinda like I like mushrooms but they don't like me.

LaNow laying back on a a floting raft, in aglass globe , in the sea, with a pod of friendly dolphins , ready to help a person if needed, oone hand trailing so they can bump her hand if they like to, Note there is a cool drink in a holder, with a cover and a straw and cover that flots to keep cool, There is a awing hanging over the dock in deeper waterm, making shade too keep cool, thef what I am laying on is teatered to the dock at the moment, Note Just enjoying relaxing here,One part sswimming suit, and safty vest, even with all the fins around me, I am not a good swimmer , nor can I see, , The dock has guide rails system, like cchains on poles to help guide folks, drawing on memories from camp for much of thisk, or what I think would work.

It has rained quite a bit. That reminds me of a friend who liked to wash her hair in rainwater. One time she got her hair all wet and soapy and it stopped raining! We could have a "rainwater hair washing station."

Nice idea , Jerry Appe I tthink I have that spelled right, made a shower that was outside using rain and well water on his farm , after he grew up, Don't Curse the Rain is the name of the book, and PBS Wisconsin program that spoke of that, I recall one time, my folks used a heavy :redface: :o i would called that skindipping in the rain, behind our house
were nnonoone but a very young me, what is going on vcould see it, in
the hollow in the back. They were very hot, hot day, fast cold rain, = quick washing up., I got them, bathtows and tossed them to them, and something to bring back the soapm, but those two where LOL about
it. Good thing we had all that woods around our place, at that time, noone around but our family. Now that I think of that time only once, I do LOL and ROLF about it, at the time, I wasn't sho sure. I don't recall
the weather, I think its was the middle of summer when twhen they
did that,rain shower to get clean,

This is after all a playground. How about some nice sand that is just the right texture for building castles? And maybe a swing set and a slide? We can be "big" kids!

Sounds like a grand idea, and a way to make moats, etc. We use to do that, till my next youngest cozs, tried to pour too much water at once, we had, too much water to handle, or that is what they thoughtm, but things hold, with me aiding, my younger sedcond coz, and tits was tward the end of the day, but the kids and I were going to fill in our runs after one last rrun of water but, tthat was overboard, Ib yelled, at them. for they were scaring them, and making me mad, one of my aunts , heared the fuss, and I explanined, ththey tried too wato use too much water with their wcontaining ,not helping us put the sand back on the beach , but in the lake, she could see that, their water runn, had covered, most of the tools we were using to fill in after our last bit of water, in sections of it, and if not reaching the lake, its maked a bigger hole that we had to fill with more boughten sand, that wasn't our foour problem, we were told no bbig holes, and only one resver for water, they over did it. , So they had to help us by first putting the rest of the water back in the lake, and using there bbigger one, to help bale out the water out bbefore we an finsh it then, they had to go get the rrakes and smooth out that sectioon to boot, Now I LOL sourly at tbut with fun at that time in my life.

Sorry I don't mean to be a sour frfleamon , but I do recall, that time, and a few other time s, I also recall having fun, with others, sshowing them how to use the special hols and stuff to make water patterns in the sand, to new folks,
One time I took a plastic tub like you soke dishish in or feet, and had a dug a hole put the tub in, filled with a water, not all the waym and floted a toy boat boat , the sand keep the tub from going down sloap , and the water its did go too far, but then I had the other buckets like a set of around it to get the splashed water, one hhold lead to a run, don't recall the rest, but didn't stay out too long, weather wasn't a nice sunny day, but the water that was left, I let carefulluy so it would not effect the steps to the dock. is what I think I was trying to say,.

These are all lovely and respectful ideas to remember a grand Queen!

A friend of mine mentioned the playing of "Last Post" which is a piece of music performed at times similar to "Taps" over here. I listened to it and it is solemn and appropriate.

As we've entered official autumn, ( and we'll all be complaining about cold and too much snow soon. ) the snow globe is closed until next year.

The lights have been changed from purple back to normal.

Well we could keep it for those who live south of the equator when they get too warn, and want to cool off?

Also the Flags, are at normnmal hight.
Or We could have a place for winter /sumnmer/fall./sspring partyies?

Notes I didn't get awink of sleep, Fir, inot Sat, night, mind had too much to let me sleep, till early 6 am, and I haven't got all my ZZZZ back quite yet, so my thinking is a tad off, .

We need a summer globe, so we can get away from the cold that is coming. Something that stays about 85F. With a pool & jumbo slide.

There ought to be a way to store heat in the summer and "let it out" in the winter - then reverse the process with storing winter cold to cool down summer months. "Someone" get right on inventing that!
