Children home and tomatoes

Previous long weekend visit to see daughter and family.   Got to check out her high tunnel green house and the beautiful tomatoes that were still on the very tall vines.  Most  vines were at least 10 feet .   There were some pretty peppers also.
She sold quite a bit of veggies this summer and looks like she will have tomatoes right up to December.

To begin with there is some pretty nature and farms on the way to our childrens home.   Gorgeous pastoral views.




In the evening we arrived, we picked some tomatoes from the green house


She is going to plant now some kale and other winter crops


Hope I can help more next year.


Pretty black pepper on the vine along with tomatoes near by

She got the little tractor with a very old wagon that was left at the house.   They painted the wooden wagon red and that is what we carted the tomatoes to the house on

yeah, had to take a ride on the wagon, was getting dark as you can see


Aren't they beauties?


Next morning apples were picked from those tall trees. Those trees have been there for quite a long time.



grandson Seth sitting down on the job eating apples.  It's o.k. cause they are very good for ya.

nice way to spend a beautiful Sunday.

puzzled and among other things

I love puzzles and I have two thats finished.  Not sure where I will put them.  I may laminate one for the table on the porch and the other frame it for the winter scene.



Love Macarons

I have a 12 x 36 inch one I am working on that is a winter scene upstairs on the table.

other things this past week was another trip with grands to science museum
Just inside the door at the science museum which used to be the old train station that I used to come to in school for a day trip with class mates to Washington D.C.  and a few other places.
This is in the little snack shop there in the museum where we sit with coffee and today will be a lunch for Adalyn and Genevieve.

on our porch I let the kids eat breakfast and I check emails and after that I let the kids watch a cartoon the chrome book.   Genevieve thinks she is doing what she calls 'her business' in this picture.   She calls it that because when she walks in on Opa working , he tells her to wait until he finishes his business,  so of course she picked that up from him.


She loves to watch Cailou - her very favorite

beautiful sunset last evening while we were out

stopped in hobbly lobby and the Christmas displays are out of this world - Beautiful!

I like the looks of this natural looking wreath

Red and white is always showy 

I started off this morning with a visit to the dentist
so glad it went well before the knee replacement I will have on October 3rd.
