A cool and wet Sunday ......

It's been cool with a misty rain falling all day. Hubby has been relaxing on the sofa with Molly Ann, watching the Nascar race. After doing a bit of housework, I settled down with a good book. This weather feels more like October than August to me. We went to a JJ Grey and Mofro concert at Pocahontas State Park Thursday night. It was an outside concert and I got chilled even though I was wearing a light jacket.

My hummingbirds are still swarming around the feeders. I tried taking pictures, but I am a terrible photographer and they move so quick. I also have lots of butterflies. They are a little more cooperative with having their pictures taken.






Schools in our county start tomorrow. I remember being so excited when it was time to go back to school. I would be anxious to see friends that I hadn't seen all summer and catch up on all the gossip. I loved fresh new books, notebooks, and other school supplies. Were you happy or sad to see school start when you were a kid?

I was always nervous about school starting. And, now I am the teacher!

LOVED it! I liked the social aspect of school--loved to see who was in my classes. My mom used to work in the school district when I was in the primary grades and she would bring home the class lists for us to see---oh, it was so exciting!!

Do you think kids get excited for school anymore?

Those are wonderful pictures of the hummingbirds! I've never been able to get any.

Last night we brought jackets with us when we went out to a family party. This is August! I don't like this cool weather!

I liked going back to school because it was exciting to get new clothes and new supplies. My daughter has always loved school and I think she's ready to go back, though it doesn't start here in Jersey till the week after Labor Day. Labor Day is what signals end of summer here.

Hey, you at least got them in the picture with the feeder. I usually just get tail feathers. Well done.
I loved school. Enjoyed summer but was always ready to get back to the books and friends. The new shoes helped also.

I loved school. Still do. If I could afford it I would be a student forever.

Your photos are lovely. I was one of the rare children, I think, who actually enjoyed school.
