FOR TODAY...Friday, August 22
Outside my window...sunny and low 80s this afternoon with clouds forming for scattered t-storms later in the evening.
One of the family's favorite things...Humpback Rocks is a favorite hiking place of ours for a fun excursion. The view is always terrific!
We always remember to take our jackets for the evening picnic, because even in August the air chills on the Parkway after the sun goes down. Here I am with Sarah making S'mores using her homemade marshmallows:
I am thankful...for safety on the roads...so much traveling this summer, and the Lord has answered our prayers and brought us back home safe and sound!
In the kitchen...as usual Fridays are Sarah's baking days...homemade marshmallows, blueberry pies and apple pies, cupcakes, linzer tart, lemon cheesecake, and cashew brittle all line the counters and table...waiting for labeling and packaging.
I am wearing...navy skirt, aqua tank, aquas and blues plaid blouse, silver sandals.
I am creating...absolutely nothing sewing-wise! The last time I sewed was in March! But I'm hoping to set up my machine after this weekend and re-start my Row-Along. That's good news, I'm sure, for my Row-Along partner!
I am going...to SC to pick up Granny in late-September. She'll be back in just another month!
I am hoping...Jonathan can get started building his house soon. The lot was being cleared today! (This picture doesn't show much, but we'll keep you updated as things start to happen.)
I am looking forward to...this weekend!! Tomorrow is our 34th anniversary, and Tom and I are spending the weekend in northern Virginia ~ Manassas. I'm especially looking forward to our Sound of Music concert at Wolf Trap. Happy Anniversary to us!
Around the Garden...uh,oh...Hannah was picking tons of tomatoes this week for canning and ran into this character eating a frog for his supper...and now I'm wondering how long it will take for the Snake Be Gone to arrive from Amazon!
I know, I know...folks say garter snakes aren't poisonous. But I'm thinking a bite might make me pretty sick...so I've not been down to the garden since! I have an anniversary trip to enjoy!
