We are skipping along quickly in August already with a change in the temperature the past few days here. The humidity has given us a reprieve (until tomorrow) and it is almost sweater weather...for me at least. Most of my friends love the cooler drier air. We've had a few spectacular sunsets recently but the one above was exceptional. The photo is not edited.
I've been using mostly my iPhone for photos lately so that is what these ones I'll be sharing today are. Enjoy.
Sisters ~ Me, Pat, and Maggie
Pat, our older sister at 74, has Alzheimers and was having a good day this day when she and her husband came to visit. Maggie is doing pretty well and will see the eye doctor again at the end of next week. Still no idea when she can fly back to BC. She is visiting Pat and Richard this week for a change of scene.
The summer harvest is ongoing in our area. A local farmer hayed part of the field behind our house last week.
We are enjoying some fresh beans and peas from our garden and so are the deer!! See how they are nicely 'trimmed'? The beets are trimmed too.
Maggie and I went for a walk on the trail in Fredericton last Sunday afternoon and crossed the walking bridge over the St. John River. This is a little cruise boat that one can go on for a river tour. Our choir is doing this boat tour for a summer get together on Thursday evening.
I've been enjoying a lot of these this summer. :) Do you have a favourite flavour of ice cream? I love anything with chocolate and have been eating a lot of "Hoof Prints" this summer.
We've had a few of these kind of skies lately too, which have brought thunder showers and storms. This one actually passed us by....not a drop of rain.
Last Friday Maggie and I drove to Nackawic, home of the world's largest axe, and Woodstock. It was one of those hot sultry summer days that I love.
Murray and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary last Saturday so we went out for dinner at a hotel downtown then for a walk along the green after.
This is a new art installation along the path called "Watermark" that shows the height of the flood waters from the St. John River going back to the 1880's. The tall dark post has the dates of the high floods marked on it and yes, the highest was near the top of it in 1936! Each post is copper clad hence the turquoise colouring and there is a band of molten glass near the top of each one too. Kind of interesting.
Our shadows and Murray doing a two-handed wave. ;)
A peaceful pastoral scene on the weekend near where we live.
I've joined Instagram recently and am having fun with it so far. My account is private for now but if you'd like to follow me send a request.
Thanks for visiting and leaving your comments on my last post. I have visited a few of you and will try to find time to visit some more over the next couple days.
Have a beautiful week.
