Cake a new take on a fall classic

October 18 — today is Eliza-beth’s friend Timothy’s birthday. Happy birthday wishes go to him! We were going to take supper to Timothy’s house tonight but told him it’s easier if he would come here instead.

Daughter Elizabeth didn’t have to work today so we are going to try to make an ice cream cake for Timothy. We have never tried it before so hopefully it will turn out okay. Also on our menu will be either fried or barbecued chicken. Am not sure what else we will have yet.

Bow season has been in for a while now. This is the first year my husband Joe has tried bow hunting. He hasn’t had time to go too often yet but hopes to go tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the Eicher reunion on Joe’s dad’s side. Money-wise we will be unable to attend. It will be in Berne at a community building. With gas prices being high it also makes the prices go up for us when we hire drivers. We had to buy our coal for the winter or at least some of it, making things a little tight right now..

My husband Joe started working five days at the factory again this week which will help out a lot. We can’t complain as God gives us many blessings. How thankful we can be to have a place to live and plenty of food in the house.

One Sunday afternoon we recently walked back to see where Joe and the boys set up his tree stand in our neighbor’s woods. It was an interesting nature walk. It is a little bit hilly but Joe and the boys cleared a nice path to walk. Loretta,13, has a hard time getting up the hills. Benjamin,14, and Joseph,11, hooked arms with her and helped her get up the hilly areas. They also helped her get up in Joe’s tree stand which is 15 feet high. She was glad to be able to sit up there awhile although she was worn out until we came back home. Things the rest of us take for granted are so hard for her to do.
