September 1 - Day 41

Monday, September 01, 2014

This was an experiment. I have been trying to download pictures for the past few days and I always got the message that the file was too large to save. Tonight I was finally able to download a picture of one of my roses. Isn't it pretty?

Today was a good first day of September. This afternoon I made some tomato sauce using tomatoes and basil from my garden. Earlier in the summer, it seemed that we weren't going to have many tomatoes but they are now doing very well. The tomatoes are well shaped and taste very good. We are enjoying them.

    emoticon It is a Lovely rose. I am happy to hear you have lots of tomatoes. I only have 23 plants but frankly with all the comings and goings I just abandoned growing instead I am landscaping now. I do hours of work but few even realize I dug up weeds. I do like doing it though and it get sme outside and moving. HUGS Pat in Maine.
Thanks for being my Friend, (((((HUGS ))))).

Day 40

Sunday, August 31, 2014

Monday is the start of a new month. Although the past few days have been summerlike, I feel like I am still waiting for summer to arrive. This summer has been different. We are starting to wonder what kind of a winter will follow.

This morning Hubby was up early for a Sunday morning. He was headed to the city to participate in the motorcycle ride to help raise funds for the Downtown Mission. Whenever the motorcycle group prepares a meal for the Mission, he likes to help.

I enjoyed my free time. I walked back to the fair to watch the Border City Barkers. www.bordercitybarkers.com/ The dogs were fun to watch and the announcers made it even more interesting. It was a half hour show and well worth seeing. The dog handlers have to be in condition too because there is some running with the dogs.

I wandered around the grounds for a bit, purchased a blueberry pie to bring home and left. Another fair weekend is over. Maybe this winter I will finally work on something to enter in 2015. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Day 39

Saturday, August 30, 2014

I had lots of walking today. That was a good thing.

We went downtown to watch the parade at 11:30. It is a typical rural town fair parade - at least I suppose it is typical as I have never seen the parade that other agricultural fairs submit. There are lots of tractors and some of them are quite impressive. Each company seems to have a different colour. John Deere is green and Massey Ferguson is red. There were blue ones and even yellow. There was even one whose tires are not round.

There were horses.

I have lots of pictures and I wanted to share but again the files are too large to save. I will have to figure out something different.

This afternoon we had a sudden downpour. I was at home but Hubby got caught in it. It was over in about 15 minutes and now the humidity is worse than before.

Day 38

Friday, August 29, 2014

This is Labor Day weekend which means it is also the annual Harrow Fair. This year is the 160th edition. Tonight the entertainment was Aaron Pritchett. He was good. One of the churches spends much of the year making and freezing pies for the fair. A piece of pie and a cup of coffee is $4. Needless to say, the pie tent is one of the most popular spots at the fair. Of course there is the usual 'fair food' but with my sweet tooth, pie is what I want. emoticon Tonight I had a piece of strawberry rhubarb and it was very good. I walked home so that helped. emoticon Saturday at 11:30 the parade will start.

Day 37

Thursday, August 28, 2014

I took the dogs to the section of the Greenway I was recently introduced to. I like it there and it is not a long drive to get there. The dogs were happy. We walked for about 70 minutes.

I have pictures but today is one of those days when I get the message that 'the file is too large to save'.
