Sunset and Moonshine

Here we go again.  I can't upload any photos!  So frustrating.
Ooooopps!  I'm back.

Hurried through morning chores as

 I had an appointment in Sagawa Park at 9am.
The Art & Aesthetics Committee was meeting with Rick Muto, who has been contracted to paint a mural 7'x35'.  The head of the DPW, Chair of the Parks Committee and Mayor were there to help us figure out the logistics of installing it next spring.  It's going to be quite something.
 After that we went over to the Village Hall to look at the drawings.
This is a huge undertaking and will show the history of our village.

 Got home in time for lunch, took a nap and then
worked on dinner.  I've been very hungry for Spanish Rice so I grabbed some onions, peppers, carrots and tomatoes from the garden and got to work.

 At the very end I added a little grated cheese.
 Served it with a salad and we were good to go.
 Had to do chores early as I had a meeting tonight.

 About that time, the sun started blasting away at the barn.

 Such a glow.
 Tucked the girls in and kept taking pictures on my way over to Pat's house.

 A wild look to the west....
and an hour and a half later, the moon was calling.
Night all.

Happy Anniversary Stephanie and Joe!

Here we are, 18 years ago


(Is anyone else having problems loading photos tonight?
When I try, everything freezes.
Maybe I will see what happens if I go for a video.
Nope, that does not work either!

Well, I heard from Kim at Golden Pines and she had problems earlier but ended up being able to load her photos.  I tried for over an hour and when I switched from Firefox to Safari it worked....except for uploading a video.  Hope this clears up.

Meanwhile back at the photos of the girls, just one of Karen, who is kind enough to dump my manure cart every morning after I clean the stalls.
 Spent some time at the Farm Market this morning...did a little schmoozing.
Bought some corn on the cob and a huge cantaloupe.
I can get everything else we need from our own gardens.

 When I got back to the farm, decided to make some potato salad for dinner.
All vegetarian considering what we ate at the BBQ last night.

 Gary picked a basket of tomatoes and will be making sauce tomorrow.  We are never going to make 75 bags for the freezer.  Should have planted a few more.
He also continued making some big changes in the Pergola garden.  It's really
shaping up.  I love the stone wall and want it to show.  Our house was built in 1823 and back in the day there were cows in the barns and this space was used for horses.  All those "stones" are chunks of cement that Gary broke up by hand...they used to be the floor of the outbuilding.
 Got the girls tucked in

 and was back in the house before dark.
Earlier I thought it was going to rain, but it didn't.
The second cutting grass Karen and I want to buy is on the ground
and should be baled tomorrow.  Hope it really happens.
Night all.
