We went to church, then loaded everything up for a trip to MIL's. Arrived in plenty of time to make eggplant parmesan and fry the chicken drumsticks. Hubby's brother and wife would not be joining us for lunch but that was okay. After we ... Read more

It is not quite Fall just yet and we have a couple of warm and humid days ahead of us. It is good for drying out the flooded fields and giving us hope that the roads will be in better shape come winter. DH is taking his mother in for ano... Read more

Lots of walking and the cooler weather was a plus. My iPad was uncooperative so I didn't spend much time trying to blog. WiFi was very spotty on the grounds. Home now and the laundry is done. We were home much earlier than normal and cou... Read more
