The Afterwards

What a weekend we've had here, the 45th reunion last night, and our church bazaar and turkey dinner today. 

They say turkey makes you tired... I can attest to that!  I worked in the kitchen for three and a half hours and we won't be having turkey for 
Thanksgiving here, but then, we rarely do. 

Here is a picture from last night... these are the six 1964 grads of 
St. Peter's Grade School that were at the reunion. 

Bruce, Larry, Moe, Steve, Annie (cousin) Jeannie, your blogger Mary Ann, and Debbie, a good friend. 

Parochial school over-achievers, every one of us!  (laugh) 

We had such a good time gathering and sharing dinner with our classmates from Bishop Ward, class of '68. 
Ah, the memories. 

I'll stop there! 

This is one of my favorite fall sights... poison ivy turning red in the trees. 
I'm remembering which trees, too! 
This one grows over the old cistern on our property line, that we have filled (mostly) in with debris. Snakes hibernate down there. 
Another good reason to stay away from it. 

This tree has also been struck twice by lightening since we have lived here. 

Kelly and the two girls were out at different times today; I like to get them out for four or five hours a day to get exercise, and to eat as much green "stuff" as they can.  They love this sapling tree for some reason... Kody also loved it  The girls had just been eating here with Kelly, and had wandered around the corner. 

There is still lots of color around. 

And wonderful textures, though I should have dug this thistle out.  Too late now. 

The ducks were enjoying the afternoon sun, since we are expecting rain this week. 
We need it. 

And here's a face her mommy and daddy love... Abby Lynn.  You see I still have bins on the porch to go through this week from the cleaning out of the storage building.  The goats have enjoyed laying on top of these! 

Everyone have a great start to your week! 


  1. It looks like you had a great weekend. I enjoyed all the pictures. Nice you put so many up for us to see what you've been doing. There is a tree in our neighbor's yard that has that poison ivy displayed in all its glory too. Thankfully none is here in my yard. I'm very allergic to it and have learned to wear long sleeves and gloves when weeding around here. It seems to sprout up over night.

  2. You and your farm keep going , and going! We understand how you would be so exhaugsted-- and after all that cooking too.
    The reunion sounded fun--thinking about old memories too.
    We did not know poison ivy leaves turn red like that-- and then snakes fall from trees! yikes!
    Your a brave soul!
    Abby- your soo adorable-- so hugable!!!

  3. Isn't getting together with old high school friends fun!! What a wonderful weekend!! Great shot of your pug on the porch!! He's certainly healthy!

  4. I love Abby Lynn too!
