As the sun peaked through my bedroom window this morning I thought how fast this year has gone by. Here it is September 1,which signals the end of summer and the getting ready for those cooler days and it seems it was only yesterday that I was wanting to snuggle back under the covers on the cold days of last winter.
No worries about cooler weather today as the temperature was already well into the 70's as I did morning chores.
After breakfast I decided to take a long walk this morning down into the lower pasture to check out what this dry summer has done for our farm pond. It is completely dried up.
The creek isn't looking much better as the water level in it is as low as I have ever seen it also.

I reluctantly came back inside to get started on my housework Tuesday duties.
First of the month changes brought out the apple decor for September.
While I was heading back inside to watch the news a yellow jacket flew into my back and went down the top of my shirt stinging me just under my right shoulder blade as I mashed him to get him out. Yeow !!! that hurts !!!!
Since it was on my back I couldn't get any paste to stick on it to take the sting out of it.
Hubbie came in and we watched the news while I held an ice pack on the sting.
After a salad supper and evening chores we relaxed outside in the covered patio.
I'm pretty sure these three are not old enough to be out of their nest.
They were funny to watch as they stuck so closely together as if knowing there might be safety in numbers.
The forecast for more chances of rain for this weekend is good and bad since this is the apple festival weekend but we so desperately need rain. Maybe it will rain out here in the country and not in town where the festival will be !!!
Well this has been a really nice first day of September for me. I love the wonders of nature and God provided me with some of them today.
Thanking Him for His many blessings and feeling comfort in the knowledge that Heaven is for real.
Good Night and God Bless.
