Can you tell I am, like some older people, resistant to change?

This year it is yellow and brown. Maybe the moon flowers leaves towering over it shaded it from the sun. L. had to pull them back for me so I could get the photo.

We had one and three quarters inches of rain on Saturday, the 23rd. Everything is nice and
green. We are thankful we aren't having any flooding here.
The line across the lawn is a path the dogs have worn in going from one area to another.
There are three of these paths, two leading to the back door and this one connects to areas
where they bark at neighbor dogs.

This little jewel was installed by the power company to help us AUTOMATICALLY control
Yesterday it was warm outside so the A/C was set on 73. I was chilly all day.
Today it is cooler (61) and the furnace is going.
I wish we could find a comfortable temperature we both agree on and set it there year round.
(I have learned not to change it - he tells me to but I decline.)

This pin was given to me by my cousin, Marcheta. The sewing machine was attached to her arm by the link. I started to put it on a blouse last week and the head snapped off. Gorilla Glue has fastened it to a piece of cardboard so I can save it but not wear it.
It represents how I felt yesterday. I just wanted to take my sewing machine and hop off to some quiet place.
It seems the pesky maple seeds have clogged our gutters in front and it was a world-shaking event here.

This morning we went to the shopping center five miles southwest of our town. We found orange cones and lots of road work. After our big purchases of giant sunflower seeds and castor bean seeds, we decided to head back to the big city on a dirt road. All went well until we turned to drive a mile to a blacktop. Straight ahead in the center of the road was a road grader. First thought: what am I going to do with this big van? The ditch? Suddenly I saw a driveway to a private home. Besides the drive, there was a circular area and I was able to turn around and did not have to back out onto the road! R. says God was looking out for us. Luck or God, I was very thankful to see that drive.

My mom, shown with them, was nineteen years old. This is the same year she graduated from nurse's training in Halstead where Dr. Arthur Hertzler had built a large hospital.
