Cinnamon Rolls...and Other Important Stuff...

 I had a fun surprise today!

I was running some errands, and I had no sooner pulled in the driveway than I got a text from my friend Anne.  She and our friend Rhoda were making cinnamon rolls, and they invited me to come over and join in the fun!

What better way to spend a couple of hours on a cold December day?

I arrived just in time for this...

LOTS of butter, sugar and cinnamon...

Cutting the rolls with criss-crossed dental floss...

Anne's boys were eager helpers...

Rolls rising, waiting to be baked.  I got to take a pan home with me to bake...and Rhoda just brought another pan to my door!

Meanwhile, on the home front, other important things were getting done!  Our milk house door was in dire need of being replaced!  Here's the new door...solid wood with a latch that works...

There's a weight inside the door that pulls it all it needs is a little paint!  Maybe tomorrow?

And this feed trough is now repaired.  Now the heifers' feed will stay put...

So...what do you think?  Which of the tasks were the most important?  :)


  1. The door is very, very handsome. It will probably last longer than the batch of yummy rolls (unless you count time on the hips--I don't). But cinnamon and good friends feed the soul. What's more important than that?

  2. Love the door ! Wonderful photos of your friends and kids making Yummy cinnamon rolls ! All tasks were important I would say ! Have a wonderful day !

  3. I'd say they were all very important, but the rolls certainly look like the most fun!

  4. The farm work looks great....and the cinnamon rolls taste yummy, but I must say the time spent with friends was absolutely the best in my book. The boys were tickled to see their pictures on your blog!!! Thanks!

  5. OMG those cinnamon rolls looks good! reminds me of my mom... :)

    thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving a comment! really appreciate it! blessings to you and yours!

  6. Oh dear those rolls look wonderful !! I can smell them baking as I type.ow fun when those invites come, can't let them slip by....enjoy the rolls.

  7. Love the cinnamon rolls and the door. I wouldn't paint that beautiful wood. Maybe stain it. Loved the post.

  8. I agree with the others, the time spent with your friends is the most important! But the cinnamon rolls and the door are both lovely! :)

  9. Oh definitely the cinnamon rolls and good company.
    Although...that is one mighty fine door I wish I could get to painting!:)

    Came over through Buttons blog- and now I'm raving cinnamon rolls:)

  10. What a nice day :) I make rolls like that too.

  11. I don't know it'd be a close call : ) The door looks great-and the rolls look yummy!


I enjoy hearing what you have to say! Thanks for your comments!
