Happy Anniversary!

My awesome daughter-in-law and fabulous son-in-law are celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary today.

They have given us two wonderful grandchildren, MacKenzie and Mason. The picture was made several years ago. (Guess I need a new one). MacKenzie is 11 and starting middle school. Mason is 7 and our star baseball player.

We are so proud of this family. They are truly blessed with each other and their love of the Lord.

Homecoming Queen 2023

Miss Chloe started first grade last week. She is my dear granddaughter #4. She is the first granddaughter that I was priviledged to witness her birth.

I predict she will be Homecoming Queen of her high school class when she graduates in 2023.

'Maters & Critters

It's that time of the year when tomatoes are in great supply. I love tomato sandwiches. We eat tomatoes three times a day when they are coming off the vine. In January, I'll be wishing I had one.

We have competition for the ripe tomatoes.

This little chipmunk is in a Have-A-Heart trap. We have chipmunks running up and down the tomato vines. We can stand at the bedroom window and watch them eating the 'maters. So, dear husband purchased a Have-A-Heart trap. When we catch one, we take him down to the Recreation Area on the Chattahoochee River and set him free. Some days, we make three trips. Biscuit loves to go on the ride to the river.

The porch

We had rain blow through last night and earlier this evening. It cooled the air off and made a nice evening for sitting on the porch.

I found this sign at a local shop and it explains how we feel about our porch better than we ever could.

Biscuit (aka Queenie) owns the porch. It is her domain and she rules all the critters of the kingdom.

It's hot!

Seems like that is the theme for the entire US this summer. I believe we, in metro Atlanta, are coming up on our 60th day of 90 degree weather this summer.

This is my best friend...

Although it is hot, Joe and I like to sit on the porch in the evenings. It would be unbearable without the fan. We live in a friendly neighborhood, so we talk to our neighbors across the backyard fence. The neighbors all have small children and we are Geema and Papa Joe to them. I am looking forward to Fall and the cooler temperatures.
