Here's my Honey, on his Happy 54th Birthday
Son Brandon, whom we lost in May, also would have celebrated his birthday today.
He would have been 22, so it was a bittersweet day, but lots of good memories and prayers for Bran.
Our pear trees are turning golden yellow. This one still has fruit on it, which I'll pick tomorrow. I know now to "prune" the smaller fruit so that some grow large. They are so very sweet! I ate one while cutting grass tonight.
The sun shone on Donald, too, while he played in the puddle as I filled their pool this evening.
I found out, to my chagrin... that my orange lights wound through the leaves are no longer working.
I have only one Halloween decoration out ... the pumpkin man, which lights up. I turned him on for the picture. I'll bring out the rest of the Halloween things at the end of September.
Anyway, the sideboard is ready for fall.
And at the other end of the room, the prim tree is back in the house, and partially decorated for the season. I still need to decorate the porch.
I've been busy taking out petunias and planting mums, too, but I'll show you that tomorrow, as I finished so late tonight.
Tomorrow, Keith's daughters come with their husbands and children to see the Goat Boys for the first time.
We were going to have a cook out here, but the heat has been so oppressive that we are going to go to dinner at a restaurant instead, celebrating their dad's birthday a day late.
I'll take plenty of pictures!
This last picture represents the first cantaloupe I have ever grown successfully.
"Collective Farm Woman".
I did not mean to pick this, but it slipped off the vine as I lifted it and I cut it to see if it was ripe.
It is very sweet tasting, and I am having it at breakfast in the morning.
I did taste a bit, and it seemed very good. I have about 3 more small ones, and one large one that I suspect is also ripe.
We've been eating a lot of fruit here lately, and enjoying it!
Last night, we reached 200 followers.
Another book giveaway is in order...
and I'll show it to you tomorrow!
