BUSY MARKET DAY , 1971 JULY PICS

Greeted by another drizzly cool day which felt so good. As I finished chores and got ready for market I was thankful not to be drenched with sweat as has been the case the last couple Saturdays.
Market was extremely busy today,all day. We sold everything but a couple chocolate cakes. It was a good day for daughter and I. At times the isles were packed with people which I haven't seen in quiet some time.
After market I rushed home to cook for a benevolence dinner for the family of a member of our church. I cooked green beans and took one of my chocolate cakes and sliced some fresh cucumbers.
I changed clothes and headed up the road hoping I would get there in time.The funeral started at 2:00 and the burial was just down the road in our church cemetery.
I made it with plenty of time to spare,thankfully !!
This was the largest family group we have served in a while but we had plenty of food and the family enjoyed the fellowship with one another greatly.
The man who passed away was a retired minister and teacher at the local Bible College.
I got home at 6:30 from there and finally got to relax and put my feet up. I read some in my cousin's book that I bought at the family reunion last Sunday.
My cousin sent this picture of all the family that attended the reunion.There was quiet a group of us who attended.

I have spent an evening just flat out resting. The temperature is almost chilly tonight as I sat out on the sun porch but it is going to be short lived. After 2 days of cool,cloudy,drizzly weather the rain gauge only had about 1/4" so we still need rain.
The heat is going to climb steadily starting tomorrow and I'm sure the rain if any that comes with the hot days won't be as peaceful as the drizzle we've had the last couple days!

July is the month for watermelon eating and in 1971 I was enjoying some as my mother posed with me for this picture.I guess this was my 17th birthday cake !!!!!!!!
My dad got in this picture also.
Getting an early bedtime tonight to catch up my rest tonight and tomorrow before another busy week starts.
Grateful to God tonight for a wonderfully caring church family and praying for His comfort to the family who lost the wonderful man who is now watching from Heaven.
Good Night and God bless.

We had a cool day yesterday also--but like you said, the heat is coming back. Darn!!!!

Glad you had a good day at the market --and got to the dinner for that family.

Hope you have a blessed Sunday.
