 It's back.
The kind of day that was energizing.
 Off with the sheets.

 Did my thing in the barn.
Then off to Wegmans for some groceries.

Lizzie and Fred arrived a little before 12:30.  After a nice leisurely lunch we went down to the village to see what we could see.  Our last stop was at A Different Path Gallery.  I thought Lizzie would like it.
 Kathy had planted all the window boxes.
This was on a table next to an installation.
What a great idea.
Everything was there, we just had to follow the directions.

Lizzie tied hers to the branch....
 and took another one off....I did too.

 The orchids were still full of blossoms.
Lizzie is a vegetarian, so dinner was made accordingly.
 A big salad....
 added mushrooms and a little wine to our homemade sauce.
Held off on dessert...had to do chores.
 Fred enjoyed his meal too.

7pm and the moon was out while the sun was starting to go down.
 The inside of the barn was glowing.
 Grained the ponies....had set up water and hay this morning.

 The sunset was as beautiful as the sunrise.

Then it was time for dessert ala Idol.  Razzelberry Pie!  Big yum!
Night all.
