Another view

I posted a photo taken from a different angle here at Time Stand other blog. I would love to be able to get a photo from this side without all the wires, etc. But this was just a drive-by on our way north. I still cannot imagine going to a high school that looks like this.
It is kind of overcast here today....I have been sitting here catching glimpses of leaves as they fall or are blown along. I think we are headed for a short fall season, but hope I am wrong. We had a little bit of rain night before last but not enough to make a difference. I guess the farmers can use the dry weather to get their crops in.

All the corn is either already turned brown or starting to turn...but the soy beans are still green for the most part. I think because the rain in the spring slowed their planting.

Here at home, the tomatoes are about at an end...there is enough to eat and that is about it. The plus side of that is that they are still delicious. In years past, at the end of some seasons they have been watery and flavorless. I think it had to do with the amount of rain. Whatever the reason, I am so glad to be able to enjoy them. And I sort of wonder what I am going to do when they are gone.

Yesterday I did the first round of sewing of the binding on the quilt...but did not start the hand sewing part of it. I love to do that when I have good shows on TV to watch/listen to. Lately, there are just so few things we like to watch. Maybe tonight will be least football season is starting soon!
