MY FIRST DAY OF KINDERGARTEN !!!

Took this picture on the way to school this morning. G-son is going to have to get used to a new routine at Neena's in the morning. He thought he was going back to bed this morning when mom dropped him off. But he ate breakfast while I got ready and then we headed to school. I walked in with him and followed along to see if he could find his room. He only hesitated once and then we were in the right hallway.
I had a nice chat with his teachers and still made it home by 8:15 to the delight of the chickens and dogs.
After chores,breakfast and exercises I took a long walk, the humidity level must be 100% this morning as sweat poured off me as I walked.
I think all the wet weather has ruined the fig crop, as soon as the figs start to ripen they burst open and are immediately a feast for bees who are looking for winter food to store.
 These butterflies were also enjoying the nectar of this late blooming butterfly bush .

Looks like we will have plenty of pears.
I spent the rest of the morning baking. I baked 30 layers ,2 pound cakes and a wine cake before lunch.
After lunch I changed some of my decorations to apple things for September, I forgot to take pics today so they will come later.
I bagged Avon orders, did weekly paperwork,paid bills and relaxed this afternoon while we got a short shower of rain. The thunder sounded bad in the distance but we were far away thankfully and only got about 1/10th inch of rain.
#1 son picked up g-son from school today and said he went to sleep as soon as he got in the car.
Hubbie worked on the fence some more this evening while I did chores and then iced my cakes.I iced 12 caramel,1 chocolate and 2 coconuts. The usual holiday orders are not coming in this year. I wonder what the Apple Festival crowd will be like with the price of gas going up.
Hurricane Issac finally came on shore and is still creeping along flooding parts of New Orleans as the water tops some of the leveys.
Some places were flooded with 12 foot of water forcing many folks to their rooftops waiting for boat rescues.

And even with a catagory 1 hurricane the wind damage was extensive.

The storm is still only moving at about 6 MPH so the flooding rains will hit places inland as well as on the coast. So far they have not reported any deaths due to the storm.
I am headed to bed early tonight for an early start to a busy Thursday.
Thanking God for the blessings He sent my way today and saying prayers for the people in the path of Issac.
Good Night and God Bless.

HI JEAN. THANKS FOR THE NOTE YOU SENT THIS MORNING. ON MY WAY OVER TO YOUR BLOG IN A MINUTE.

SO SAD WHAT THE HURRICANE IS DOING TO THE SOUTH. I DO HOPE IT GOES STRAIGHT UP NORTH TO GIVE RELIEF TO THE MID WEST DRYNESS. I THANK GOD FOR THE FOLK THAT CAN GET DOWN ON THEIR KNEES AND PRAY FOR GODS GRACE.

THE PICTURE THAT UPSET ME SO MUCH IS THE CHURCH. GODS' HOUSE.
