In further efforts to catch up with blog posting, I give you July…and August…and a bit of September. My next post will be filled with knitterly goodness as opposed to being a recap of “What I Did During My Summer Vacation.”
Fourth of July was celebrated at the ball park with a loss for the Lancaster Barnstormers.
But there were some great fireworks!
Much Nature was Admired.
New York City was wandered about to include Central Park (with it’s Manhattan cityscape and unfortunate goat being devoured by eagles, hopefully not fiber goats), Union Square (in whose locale I discoverd a wedding dress made of teaspoons), a funky bar (where the art immortalizes sheep eating lamb carpaccio) and the Big Gay Ice Cream Shop (where I ate one of the best ice cream cones I have ever had!!).
Vegan food of such delight was consumed at my lovely niece’s culinary school. So nice to be there in your company as well as that of my daughter and my other niece. And who knew?…vegan was pretty darned tasty! (But I was hungry within several hours…note visit to BGIS above.)
August brought the annual pig roast at Mark and Cheryl’s where much enjoyment was had!
More natural beauty.
Visits galore (including Bambi Galore, get it? Heh!)
And our sad farewell to the best dog ever.
September has brought happier times with a visit to Ohio (where you can attend the Jug Fest and watch barges on the Ohio River with Mom and her companion or have a stare-down with Glenda, the kitty in the sidetable drawer.
And Allen has transferred from duty in Bahrain and has made it home! He and his fiancee joined me in perusing the SOLANCO (Southern Lancaster County) Fair where we saw animal friends enjoying fair food. They love it here, which is good as his next duty station is only about an hour away. That really helps as they can base out of the farm to look for their next home and are close at hand for wedding planning.
Phew! I’m tired…that was a full summer!
