Tomorrow is go home early day...

and I am glad.

Hannah says tomorrow she will have a popcorn party at school.  She is liking school and her teacher.  Robert is even not minding it so much this year.

It was hot today, but I think is supposed to cool off this weekend.

That's all the news for today.

Way Back...

on a couple of weeks ago,

I walked to the Red Barn and took this picture at the Blue Gate, Sunday August 24.  I guess it has  been awhile since I downloaded pics from my camera.  I have been walking most days, to this gate, 3 miles round trip.  Sometimes on the weekend, I walk to the Red Barn, 4 miles round trip.  I walk after Robert's dinner on weekdays, around 6 or so, and usually around 6 or 6:30 am when I walk on weekends.

This was taken Sunday August 24th, empty house.

This was taken last week, I think on Saturday when I went to Patsy's and got tomatoes.  Helen gave me this apple butter she had made to give to Patsy.  I forgot all about it when I got there.  It has not gone to waste.  It is really good.  Today for lunch, I had peanut butter and apple butter on cracked wheat bread.  The bowl is one Hannah and I found at the Salvation Army store in BV.  I got a set of bowls like this when I got married, 3 or 4 years ago, or maybe that is decades.  Last year, I dropped and broke the one like this, which was the only one of the set I had left.  I see Pyrex bowls like this sometimes, but not usually this color.  It cost $6, a bargain.

These are the kids two gold fish they got at the fair last Friday in the 25 cent fish bowl we got at a junk store, that would rather be called thrift store.  Auntie says the fish will die, but so far so good.  Hannah got the fly from Aunt Patsy. We took it out after changing the water one time, because it was hard to work around the fly.  Now, she has snails she got at the river in there.  I read online that the snails will make the fish sick, but so far so good on that also.

This is the cemetery last Saturday, August 30.   The weeds and grass may have grown today, because we got 2 inches of rain today. It was a cool day, I think the high was in the 70's.

Sunset, August 30.

We took the grandkids to the Buffalo on Labor Day.

They had a great time.

Emmy and Sam went.  

The big girls wanted to jump from the bluff, and so did the little kids. Robert swam all the way over, but Em had to help Hannah.

Em and Sam.

One, two, three.



And again.

Lots of big splashes.

And, now you know all the known and unknown.
