How Many Snows?


There is an old saying that if you count the number of fogs you have in August, that’s how many snows you will have that winter.


I’m not sure how true that is but so far this month we had have 3 mornings with fog.


The geese don’t seem to mind though.


The girls and I picked a bushel of corn this morning.  We put 40 ears in the freezer, keep out enough for supper, and had a few bags of corn cut off the cob for the freezer.  We also picked almost 1/2 bushel of tomatoes.  We will be using these to make spaghetti sauce one day this week.  I am also trying a recipe for sourdough bread using my bread machine to work the dough.  I’ll let you all know how it turned out.

We had a great weekend with the grandkids.  Chuck brought these scooters for everyone to ride.


And a toy for him to play with.


We then went for a ride in the bumpy truck.  Irma had never ridden in the back of a truck before. (I know, I just couldn’t believe it either).  Sunday we had our church breakfast at Smart View Park.  David and Jess came up.  They had Katie dressed in the little dress and hat the girls had made her.  She looked so cute in it.  Later in the afternoon, we all went for another ride in the bumpy truck.  Daniel so loves riding in “his” bumpy truck.

Well, that’s about it for now.  I hope you all have a great evening and God bless.

  1. What beautiful photos! We had really hot weather the past few days (hot for the Northwest!), today is cloudy and a nice change!


  2. I do hope you are wrong about the snows! Sounds like you had a great weekend. Those scooters look like a lot of fun. You got a bunch of corn! We have just been picking enough to eat here and there. I have frozen a few ears too. I made another batch of spaghetti sauce today(without Quentin, I know you’re proud). 🙂 I want to make salsa next if we keep getting lots of tomatoes. The bumpy truck rides sound like fun! I can’t wait to see you all tomorrow.
