A Day Off...

 I went out a little early today as we had (were supposed to have) friends stopping in at 9.

They are here for a wedding and flew in from California (late) around 2:30 am and did not make it  until noon.  In the meantime, 3 of my students took all the art work out to Marti's on Main in Albion for our art show that opens on September 6th.

Anyway....Look at that face!  This is Izzy and she will be in her aunts wedding tomorrow.
 We had a good hour together before they left for the rehearsal.  It was so nice to catch up....they used to live here and have been gone for 10 years....horse buddies.
 So many memories of all the things we used to do together.
 Remember the books of photographs I had printed called "Gallup Road?"  They were for the 3 "kids" in this family who (after tomorrow) will all be married. 
I hope Terri can come back again so we can really spend some time with all our horsey friends.

This afternoon I did nothing....read for awhile and fell asleep.  Whatever.....it felt so good.

Before chores I made a potato salad....4 strips of bacon (never did that before...Roger's idea), 5 diced potatoes, celery, carrots, 2 hard boiled eggs, 6 diced sweet pickle chips, vinegar, pickle juice, a shot of sugar, salt, pepper, celery salt, mayo and mustard.

Chores a little after 5...it cooled down and the humidity was lower.  I have been totally sick of the thick air.

 Berlin is getting around but is far from normal.

 Does anybody need dill?  We have several rows like this.

 One healthy dinner.  What a great year for tomatoes...we can pick about 1/2 of a bushel each day and have over 30 bags of sauce in the freezer.  Will make more tomorrow and then we need to buy a small freezer so we can store as much as possible from our garden.
Night all.

A message for Brett out at Oak Creek Ranch:

Brett did much better today -- some rest and paced himself.

I hope that Berlin is doing better, Lori. I just had an abscess issue with Eco. Not fun. Back foot on him. I hope that Berlin is doing better today.
