Yes, that is our smoke detector. It played a part in a great visit we had today.
You see -- Bob and I had invited Mary of Mary's Meanderings and her husband, Bill, to come for lunch. We also had invited some friends of ours that serve as prison missionaries for Mary and Bill to meet, as Bill does prison missionary work. Everyone had assembled and were ready to eat lunch. We were having the best time visiting; I got distracted, and you guessed it -- the smoke alarm went off telling me I had forgotten the garlic bread that was browning in the oven. Bob calmly announced, "Guess lunch is ready!"
How embarrassing, but I cut around the really burnt part and lunch continued.
Not only did the bread get a little toasty, but I was having such a good time that I completely forgot to take any pictures to blog about.
Mary brought me a set of her white pumpkins made from old sweaters. Aren't they wonderful? If you haven't become a reader of Mary's blog, please stop by here and introduce yourself. Her heart of gold shines through her blog.
