My husband and I went to our usual restautent for our usual breakfast with friends before going to church this morning. I had mentioned to my friend Anne that I made some Lady Asburnham pickles the night before, to fill my order from the auction bid. She told me with dissapointment in her eyes that her cucumbers were not doing well and that she would have to buy some for her pickles. After I returned home and prepared the second double batch of  chopped cucumbers and onion  with salt to brime overnight, I check out the other cucumber patch and it was loaded  with huge cucumbers that I didn't need. With my husband's help we packed three large boxes  of cucumbers for my friend Anne. She and other women are making pickles for the church suppers. They make some for the Fall  Church Supper and the Spring Church Supper.

Today is a beautiful sunny day again and I've been inside most of the afternoon. I've prepared some delicious corn on the cob for our supper.
