We had a lovely visit with our granddaughter and their parents this weekend. Things were a little up in the air (almost literally) on Friday night. M had to make a quick trip to Philadelphia on Thursday and Friday. Storms moved in on Friday afternoon, both here and in Philly, delaying his flight about 3 hours. Not so bad in the grand scheme of things, but I worried about him arriving here before the next line of storms. His plane landed just a few minutes before the storms.
We went to the Portage County Randolph Fair yesterday. It’s become something of a tradition for us. The Exquisite Emma seems to enjoy it, especially looking at (and in some cases, petting) the animals. Neither M nor I entered anything this year. I had given some thought to entering a photo but couldn’t find one that suited me, and there was so much going on this summer that I didn’t really take the time to look.
I think things should settle down for a little while for us. I want to take a trip east to visit with my parents but I’m not sure when I’ll do that. Sometime in the next month, I hope.
It’s chilly here in the Bogs. It’s windy and cloudy, with a distinct, almost sharp, autumnal feel to it. I almost expect to see the leaves changing color whenever I look out the window. It feels like endings lately…
