On the Eighteenth Day of Summer

started the day by helping make pancakes
watching the pinwheels turn

cousins playing with pin wheels close to the end of the day

mesmerized by the pouring rain

watching the rain together greatly out weighs playing  with the pin wheels

Came across this you tube of Joe Purdy.  I've enjoyed Joe's music for awhile. I smiled through this entire clip just because he was performing with his dad. Made me appreciate him as an artist even more.

On the Sixteenth Day of Summer

I didn't take my camera along today. If I did I would have taken a picture of.......

the yummy slice of hummingbird birthday cake made by my daughter-in-law for her husband,

the soft evening glow touching the skin of granddaughter and papa reading books on the sofa

the blushing clouds from a just set sun, wisping across the sky's canvass

the "Christmas lights" wrapped around our neighbors porch rails shining like stringed fireflies on the edge of evening

 Even though the camera lens didn't capture these moments in time, the lens of my created eye by The Creator stored them in my mind and soul.  For this I am thankful.  To have eyes to see the wonders around me.

On the Fifteenth Day of Summer

The first half of the day was full of travel from Columbus, Georgia to Boone
6 am. Been on the road almost two hours

early morning downtown Atlanta

sights along the way

We watched the summer sun rise

Sun rise as we are leaving Atlanta

Going up

Sun getting lost in the smog

The second half of today consisted of a nap, harvesting from the garden, cooking, putting up food from the garden and Malachi play.
Home. David harvested some raspberries, chard and squash from the garden. I put up several bags of the chard in the freezer. Will be good in soup this winter.

Papa and Malachi play

Just before the POP
 Home to more family, garden, dog, and cat. A good full day.

On the Fourteenth Day of Summer

Parting is such sweet sorrow.  We will miss this home in Georgia.  We will NOT miss the heat.

Emma has been diligently staining the new dining table. She is doing a wonderful job. It looks great.

Oh, the South.. View of next door from the Lawson side screened porch

Special handmade treasures from family and friends corner

Dad explaining the art of sandpapering before painting

Picture over couch. Ian was on a rowing team.

Second room with all the fun stuff

I really liked this drawing

Artwork by her dad that has moved with Emma since her college days

I noticed the red while Emma and I were preparing dinner
My Grandmother, Emma's great grandmother, Emmie, called Emma, said a little red in a kitchen makes it happy.  Greatgrandma would really like the red mixer.

On the Thirteenth Day of Summer

What a joyous day. David and I got to spend the entire day with Emma and Ian. Woke to a good cup of freshly ground dark roast coffee. Emma made a batch of scrumptious whole wheat blueberry muffins. Greek yogurt,ground flax seed, strawberries, bananas, honey,coconut completed the breakfast fare.

First the muffin, then yogurt, topped with flax, fruit, drizzled with honey
 I enjoyed watching Emma and Ian from the kitchen window hang his army wash on the line. They made clothes hanging look like LOVE

After the fellowship and before Ian's water Baptism


Fort Benning

Lupper (Lunch and Supper)

Relaxing with the Tillie massage. Tillie loved licking David's legs. We couldn't figure out why? Maybe he just taste good.
