Wow! OK This looks much better!


It's done. Now we have the BBQ in a spot, as well as a little outdoor kitchen I bought years ago as a chicken butchering station. You can hook a hose up to it and have running water with a sink and drainage. It has racks and storage drawers shelves, and such. Really a nice thing to have around.

The little blue bench is a checker bench I made about 20 years ago. Two kids can sit on it and play checkers on the board I painted in the center. Storage for the checkers I made is underneath, but they were lost many years ago. Michael is ready to help me make some new ones, though.

The round table was a patio table I had purchased last spring. The wind blew it over while I was at a friend's Pampered Chef party. I came home to shattered glass all in my lawn, pebble walkway, and driveway. I cannot even count howlong it took us to pick all that glass up! So it's topless except for a plywood circle I cut to fit in there. I want to cover it with something to spruce it up...

Today we made more chips, so I took some pics for you.




We took them and the salsa out to our sukkah and spent another relaxing time there. We went on a walk later and picked up natural decor for the season.


Are the holidays here already? Seems we just began summer!

Our First Frost!


Today we spent the day at church and visiting with friends and family. I try to stop by my parents' house at least twice a week, especially on Sunday after church, and visit. My mom has Alzheimer's. It's not too bad yet, but it's getting there. Sometimes they will come out for a meal, but they would rather stay home, so we go there more often, and I will bring meals for them.

It was a beautiful day. Thank you, Lord.
