I could not resist picking one of the last roses on Kathy's rose bush. Added some of the daisy like flowers for a tiny bouquet.
We have had rain this week.
Light hazy fogs also. usually after the rains. The bean field is starting to show touches of yellow
This is one of the pioneer bean fields. So pretty with the blue skies and puffy white clouds. This is summer.
Just across the road from the beans is a corn field. You can see it is changing colors. The corn ears are drooping down in the middle of each stalk.
This is one sunset this week. I always like the shadows on the shop/garage.
This was Wednesday's sunset. Love the colors.
Another view of the same evening.
Last weekend , was the Summer's End Fest in Rossville Indiana. This is Layla holding her cousin Max's hand , they are in rain gear walking to the festival. It rained like mad on Saturday. But let up long enough for the children to take the little ones to the festival. These sidewalks look awful. Much like some in our town too.
Luke rode along in his stroller. The little ones are growing so fast. Let me squeeze them back down to little. :):)
Max rode a Donald Duck bomber plane. LOL. He loved the kid rides.
Lynzie, Mark, Max and Luke, this was taken on the vacation to the beach. Lynzie had a birthday this past week and Mark's will have next week. So we are taking them all to lunch , one day this coming week. Shhh...that's a gift for them and will definitely be for us also. LOL.
Wishing all of you a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Most will probably have a three day weekend, so fun if you are still working. Enjoy. XO
Such a beautiful rose Susie! Enjoy these last days of Summer, and have a great Labor Day weekend/Labor Day!ReplyDelete
Thank you Pilar. I am hoping to have some time with my daughters this weekend. Always fun. :) Hope your weekend is sweet. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Beautiful family! Love your photos and the kids with rubber splash boots are adorable. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you Lisa. I love seeing the little ones holding hands. They do get along so well. Don't you mss your girl being little. I sure miss my daughter young days and fun times. We always tried to go to fun activities when on Labor day weekends when they were growing up. Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
Lovely photos, Susie! I love the idea of a Summer's End fest...ReplyDelete
Happy weekend to you!
Thank you Linda. It just tickles me to see the kids holding hands. MY kids always did that when we walked anywhere...well while they were very small. LOL Blessings for a fun filled weekend, xoxo, SusieDelete
Susie, those kids are adorable and love the little ones walking together and also the family pic. We need rain really bad and everything is dry here. I think that one picture is so pretty and it makes me think of the song, Deep Purple. "When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls." Remember that? I like your little bouquet. So dainty. And finally, I have never heard of pioneer beans. Will have to look that up. Happy Labor Day. ConnieReplyDelete
Nonnie, Pioneer is the name of the company that grows the soybeans for seed ...then they sell them to farmers , to grow their own soybeans.Delete
Oh I loved that song from long ago.
I enjoy my family so much...When I think of the great young parents some of them are..I am proud. Blessings to you, DH and your family. Enjoy this weekend. xoxo, Susie

Your grandkids are changing so quickly. I know they had a great time at the festival. Lots of rain and thunder here tonight. Wow, tomorrow is September!ReplyDelete
Have a great weekend.
Karen, Where oh where did August go ...where v=ever it went I hope it took it's humidity along. But alas this week is to be hot again. Hope you are enduring, some days I am totally drained. LOL You can see how those children are growing..time is a precious thing. Blessings, xoxo, SusieDelete
Glad to see the kids had fun at the festival. So cute holding hands. Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
Thank you my sweet friend. I had a surprise in my mailbox yesterday. Kris you are so kind...you touch my heart. That towel is hanging on my oven door right now. :):) Blessings to you and yours, xoxo, love, SusieDelete
Such a sweet picture of the little ones holding hands. I hope they always have that closeness. Hard to believe that August is over already. Those sunset pictures are wonderful!ReplyDelete
Hi Kathy, I do not know what to think of August being over....it was very hot and uncomfortable for me. Had to stay inside mostly. Oh I love how close Max and Layla are. Max's mom and Layla's father were close siblings . Aren't they growing? Oh dear. Blessings to you and Joe, xoxo, SusieDelete
it's so pretty out where you live and I love the pictures of the sunset! and I love the cute picture of the kids walking in their raingear, so adorable! Hope y'all have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Thank you Debbi. I am hoping everyone can enjoy this last holiday of summer. Next weekend is our home town's Pork Fest...farm country you now. LOLDelete
I loved seeing the children holding hands too. Touches my heart. Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie
We had rain and wind too. Love the photo of the shadows on your garage. Beautiful light.ReplyDelete
Jeanie, Since you are an artist, I am glad you like the shadow picture too. I always think those would make good pictures to paint. Blessings for a fun weekend, Be safe, xoxo, SusieDelete
A plane type ride in my childhood was made to look like a WWI fighter jet. One kid was the pilot the other was the gunner. It was pretty neatReplyDelete
Adam, There was a gun type thing in front of Max and he seemed to be holding it. Boy toys we used to say. Simpler times guns meant different things. It was play. We used to play "Cops and Robbers" Cowboys and Indians" and the ever popular, "Army" . Crazy huh? Blessings to you, xoxo, SusieDelete
I enjoy looking at your beautiful part of the country. We've had quite a few fogs since about the first of August and still coming. I sure hope we don't get that many snows. lol Enjoy that beautiful family. Love and Hugs. xoReplyDelete
Susie, My daughter and I laughed about the many fogs and said the very same thing...there can't be that many snows. Plus wooly worm predictions of mild or bad winters. There's more black ones but we have brown and blonde ones also. I hope you are doing well. I keep you in my prayers. Bless you dear friend, love, xoxo SusieDelete
Oh, yes, I remember the 3 day weekend when I was working...loved them to pieces...ReplyDelete
I can comment today, Susie! I love Kathy's rose, and the color is stunning. That's such a pretty picture of the rain in your front yard. Is it unusual to have rain at this time? That is a precious picture of Layla and Max holding hands and walking to the festival, and a sweet one of Luke. And what a great picture of the family. I love the matching aqua shirts.ReplyDelete
Autumn is coming soon to my area. I can feel the breeze in the mornings, and the leaves are starting to fall. I'm so glad to be able to comment today, Susie.
Hi there Susie, yes, my ears were burning something awful!!!! ha ha ha LOL So funny. Hope your holiday was real nice!ReplyDelete
