Our Summer Time Activities

            The saying, “Summer time and the living is easy” almost describes our lifestyle. We recently went down to see our son. We went on Friday afternoon and stayed two nights down there. After our son got off work, he came to our motel and he and I went out to eat. Hubby had already gone across the county to our friend’s pond to do some evening/night fishing.
            Saturday morning, Hubby and I drove down to a neighboring town, intending to do some antiquing. It had been a while since we have done this. What we found was a change in the make-up of the town. Several years ago, we found six antique stores, this time we found one antique mall. Here’s what we found in that one store. This basket has a movable bucket bailer on it. We had never seen one like it before. It sits on our coffee table.

            We saw another one-of-a- kind creation, at least we thought it was. Neither of us had seen anything like it before. Shhhh! I bought it for our son for Christmas. It is a glass Large Mouthed Bass. When I tried to get a picture of it, Hubby said it needed a lot of color. He suggested filling it with M&M’s. (Of course, Hubby is a chocoholic.) It was difficult to get a picture. This is about my fourth try.

Across the street from us is the Community Gardens. Our neighbor has done this project for three summers now. This is the first year the rain has not ruined the crops. I noticed she added some color on the privacy fence on the garden’s west side. I asked permission to take these pictures. She has bird houses and flowers along the fence.

Mostly we are trying to keep comfortable in this heat and humidity. I am also working on some marketing of my book and casting a short play for Thanksgiving. Also I am working slowly on a play for Good Friday 2018. Both these plays are for our church.Plus trying to do some of the usual things we have to do.


  1. Sounds like you had a very nice little trip...and the glass bowl and bass are both really nice. I agree..put some m&m's in the fish! LOL. The community garden sounds like a nice idea. Is it for people in the neighborhood? Do people take turns tending it? Just wondering how it works. Sounds like you are keeping busy with your writing the plays...what a wonderful project! Would love to see them in action! When is your book signing? Keep us posted how your sales are going. Praying for you as you reach out to others! Have a blessed rest of summer...not much left I guess. Can't believe it's almost Sept.! Looking forward to fall.

    1. Pam, Thank you for our thoughts.The owner has partnered with a nonprofit agency this year.I envisioned it like you did. Her first idea was to seek help from school children to teach them how to grow their own food. Right now the plays are going slow. At present, I am trying to cast the Thanksgiving one. Book signing is September 9th. Book sales are rather slow right now. I have got to get the word out. Been under the weather today, very little sleep last night.


I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
