3. Grocery shopping and all cleaning at home and school are done thanks to help from the boys.

1. We are having sweater weather. It was 66 this morning when I left the house at 7:30. Enjoyed a nice morning outside, got in a good walk with a friend, and later had lunch on The Square.

2. Had a good report from routine dental exam/ cleaning today. (I have inherited my Dad's cavity-free teeth) Some of my kids have never had a cavity in their life. I've only had 2, both when I was a kid.

3. I was gifted with a bucket of organic muscadines and scuppernongs today. The first I've had this summer. They are one of my favorite things about August!

Kay, glad you are enjoying time with your 2 sons in Illinois!

I used to be an RN....I didn't know you were a nurse!

1. I had lunch today with my older son. It was great seeing him.

2. I took the commuter train into Chicago....it's a lot nicer than it used to be.

3. I've got a big pot of chilli on the stove for dinner tonight with my younger son.

Even though I'm a nurse I was not familiar with skin mets, so just looked it up. Yes, so glad you don't have it and wonderful you have an on call dermatologist!

1. Went to aerobics class this morning. A photographer was there for a feature in this week's paper. (Great incentive for good form! LOL)

2. College son is at school orientation in Murfreesboro (MTSU) this evening. This is his senior year. He begins student teaching 3rd grade in Spring Hill next week.

3. I made waffles for breakfast. First time since we moved here in May. They were delicious with cashew butter and maple syrup :-)

1. I had breakfast with my best friend this morning and lunch with one of my brothers that I hardly ever get to see. It was great spending time with both of them.

2. We went to Costco and picked up some things we needed for our trip. We found a cooler that I think will work perfectly.

3. I went to the dermatogist this morning because I've been dealing with intense itching. She prescribed some medications for it and told me to call her if I continue to have problems while we are travelling. I'm glad to know that I have someone I can call if this keeps up. She said for sure that it's not skin mets. I was concerned that it might be. Whoo Hooo that it's not!!!!

1. Enjoyed a visit with oldest son today. He surprised me with 2 birdhouses and a feeder that he made. My favorite birdhouse is made from rustic looking wood. The knot hole is the opening for the birds and the roof is painted barn red.

2. Some friends and I hosted a surprise birthday party for another friend who is celebrating her 80th this week. Was she surprised! It was a lot of fun.

3. We had a nice rain this morning and the rest of the day was sunny. The weather has been mild for August.

We visited Mammoth Cave several years ago. It was awesome. Well done getting all those steps in!

1. We had a good time at church this morning.

2. We were invited to have lunch and spend the afternoon with several of our friends. I brought a healthy (gluten free) dessert.

3. Now we are enjoying a lovely evening at home. Just saw a whole herd of deer grazing in the back yard. (Yesterday we spotted either a beaver or large woodchuck meandering along the fence line). And the bluebirds have discovered the bird bath!! So fun to watch them.

1. My daughter and family spent the day with us yesterday.

2. We've been enjoying the sweetest juiciest peaches from the Amish. Reminds me of my childhood days on my grandparents' peach orchard farm in south Georgia.

3. Had a restful afternoon. Watched an old Hallmark movie "Sarah Plain and Tall" and the sequel "Skylark".

It's no fun itching! I have a little touch of poison ivy that is drying up. Glad your bug bites are healing well.

1. The boys and I hauled a truck load of branches we trimmed last weekend.

2. I hung all the rest of the framed pictures.

3. I have a lot of house plants that have been temporarily sheltered on the back screened porch. I brought several inside to accent some of the rooms. Our house is truly looking like home.

1. We found a lot of gluten-free meals (at Big Lots) to take with us camping while we are on our trip.

2. I had fun line dancing this morning.

3. I had a nice rest this afternoon. (I had to take steroids for some bug bites and I'm tapering down the dose over the next few days. The taper period always makes me feel really tired. The good news is that the steroids did the trick for the intense itching I had been dealing with from the bites.)

3. Also found just the right shower curtain and rod for the smaller bathroom.

1. The boys and I were able to get some more bushes and trees trimmed in the back yard this morning. We are pleased at how nice it is looking. This afternoon we watched a deer investigating where we had cut under one tree.

2. I organized the contents of the chest freezer.

3. Enjoyed a phone chat with my middle son this afternoon. He always makes me laugh.

1. For the sound of rain on our tin roof yesterday morning.

2. For the delightful sight of deer in our yard every afternoon. One deer especially seems curious. She watched us several minutes at a distance through the dining room window as we ate supper. And we were watching her watch us. LOL

3. Tax free weekend. The boys and I plan to do a little clothes shopping today.

2. Time for van's oil change and check up. Was able to get in and get that done quickly because nobody else was in line.

3. Oldest son made a beautiful wooden plaque engraved with our new street address to hang outside near the front door.

Kay, I like the shade Jim installed. It will keep your house cooler on these steamy days. Your home is very nice. I love lots of windows.

1. Jim installed a shade in front of a door and two large windows that get a lot of sun. It's cool because it has a solar powered motor that I can control from inside the house. The color of the shade turned out to be perfect for our house.


2. Mommy duckie is laying more eggs in our flowerpot.

3. I made some gluten-free brownies this morning.

For yesterday:

1. Jim scrubbed the tile floor in our sunroom with TSP and got it looking nice and new again.

2. We got lots of veggies from the Farmer's Market yesterday morning.

3. I made rotissery chicken on the grill last night. It's the second time I've done it this summer. It comes out so moist and it's easy to do. We buy pastured chickens from a local farmer.

1. I made bran muffins and carried some to a friend in the nursing home.

2. It was nice enough outside that I was able to walk with a friend at the park.

2. We were able to get some new brushed-nickle bathroom faucets at Lowes for $19 each!

3. I'm thinking this afternoon might be a good time for a nap too!

1. Hubby finished painting the basement!

2. I got in 10,000 steps on my fitbit every day for a week.

3. The professional painters are almost done with the outside of our house. They would have finished today, but it started raining. I don't know how they can work in this heat and humidity.

1. We got a huge amount of the yard cut this morning. It's getting easier since we've cut back most of the overgrown field.

2. I've washed all the sheets today and the boys are putting them back on the beds.

3. I am getting ready to cook some fresh yellow squash and slice some just picked tomatoes for sandwiches. It doesn't get any better than that.

1. The boys and I went to the school work bee this morning. We got the library clean and organized.

2. I made humus for lunch. We put it on wraps and rolled it up with fresh diced tomatoes, cucumbers, and baby spinach. It was very good and a good way to use some of the produce that I've been harvesting.

3. We filled in some holes in the yard and I transplanted a tomato plant that someone gave me.

I'll have to check out that app emoticon

Highlights from past week:

1. Two families that were out of town the past 10 days asked if I'd harvest the produce from their gardens. I got tons of blackberries, tomatoes, yellow squash, zucchini, cucumbers and a few blueberries. Kept me very busy!

2. Despite the 90 degree temps every day we managed to get all the grass cutting and yard work done. We even cut back more of the field. The deer and rabbits are loving it.

3. So thankful for air conditioning these days!

I'm glad your son missed the deer too! I barely missed one several years ago....its frightening. Your info about finding out more things about your property as the grass gets cut reminds me of when I moved to Illinois and bought a house in the fall while the leaves were still on the trees and bushes. After all the leaves fell, we discovered we were the proud owners of a cute playhouse and a big storage shed in the woods behind our house!

These are for yesterday.
1. We went to Costco in Knoxville and stocked up on all kinds of food.
2. We got some needed rain.
3. I met a couple of nice ladies that just started coming to our line dancing class.

2. We are having thunder storms this evening. Thankful for the rain.

3. A deer ran out and college son almost hit it. So thankful he did not!
