Of course so much has happened.
Planted my garden in May, and I am still harvesting! We are just now eating watermelon. I had no idea how long it took, and absolutely clueless about how to know when they are ripe. After several YouTube videos I now know.
I have mowed our grass darn near a thousand times (perhaps I exaggerate, or not) I used a push mower all summer long. We have nearly an acre, and that calculates out to about 3 hours of pushing and 4 miles of walking. So that helped tremendously on the exercise front. Since last January, I have lost 30 pounds in preparation for Jordan and Brittany's wedding on August 30. What a spectacular wedding it was!

We had a busy day first going to Great Falls. Here are the 4 of us. What a beautiful spot that I had no idea existed.
Here are the 4 of us at Mt. Vernon relaxing on the back patio. We waited for the lemonade, but no one brought any out. We had a lovely day, and the weather was incredible. Our visit was perfectly timed and completely enjoyed.
Since arriving back in Ohio I have gone back to work, part time subbing in the Dover schools offices. After a 9 year absence, I have picked up where I left off. It's been great seeing so many of the people I once worked with, that I count as friends! I have been at the high school and the middle school so far.
In between subbing I have a number of speaking engagements. This Monday, October 6, I will be speaking to the Rotary, the 14th, I am scheduled to speak at the Gnadenhutten Women's Club, the 23rd I am scheduled for the GriefShare group at Dennison Christian Church, and the 26th Jeff and I are scheduled to speak at a church in Frazeysburg. So there you have it.
I have canned garden goodies, and have more to do, but seem to be lacking in the energy department. Is it time for a nap yet?
