Sweetz and I spent the day with the seniors from our church. There were only 8 of us today, but it was a beautiful fall day with just a little nip in the air. We went to a fruitcake factory where everything from fruitcake to cookies to crackers to cocoa to coffees and teas and candy and everything in between is made and sold. There were lots of varieties of goodies in a huge salesroom. After we arrived we were informed the actual factory didn't operate on Fridays so would be unable to take the factory tour to watch them make all the goodies. But we spent a bit of time in the salesroom and were given lots of samples. We bought a few gifts but saw some customers there with small buggies literally loaded down. The place was decorated for Christmas which is way too early for me but guess that helps put people in the Christmas buying mode.
Our group ate lunch at Sagebrush Steakhouse in a nearby town where we had a great time eating together at one large table in one of the dining rooms. Food was delicious with generous portions. And I couldn't help but snap a picture of the train as it ran on a track above our table.
After lunch we headed to one member's cabin retreat on the lake. What a pleasant life that would be living at a place like that! I would have stayed there forever to soak in the peace, but we had to load the van and end our day. I left with a few pictures and a heap of pleasant memories.
