Goodness, it’s August tomorrow and Becky goes back to school in 2 weeks. We’ve been having the nicest summer weather I can remember – in the mid to high 70’s during the day with low humidity making it perfect to do just about anything.
The Fair is over for another year and I didn’t get to attend as much as I wanted because I had 4 extra dogs last weekend. I was glad when they all went home – even though I loved each one of them.
When Rick is home only on the weekends, we have to cram everything into those 2 days and last Saturday was the day to put up an arbor for a very healthy trumpet vine in our backyard. Oh, what a job but Rick can figure out most anything so with my help we got it up. Why can’t I ever remember to take a good “before” picture?
This Sunday is our church’s 125th Anniversary with 2 services and a catered meal. Margaret, the organist I always play with, is gone on vacation so I will have to handle all the music by myself. And there’s a lot of it!
Cheryl and I managed to move this black dirt and level it in preparation for seeding the lawn. Cheryl knew how to run the Bobcat and I knew how to run the rake. What a partnership!
Just finished a good book by Harlan Coben, “Missing You” – a very suspenseful murder mystery. Also have watched the first 2 seasons of “Game of Thrones” – really good even though I’ve missed some details.
Connie’s son, Joe, with Nina, Ben and Claire, are vacationing this week at Okoboji – I’m sure Connie wishes she could be there instead of here working. Next week we have a group coming for a retreat – we’re looking forward to seeing these friends again.
Here’s a sweet picture of Oreo and Rosie on their shelf in the barn.
That’s all, folks, for this week.
