It was cool today, did not rain so that was nice. Phinnie and I walked a little. Pop picked up Sig. She forgot her phone in her school locker, but Pop took her back to Jr. High to get it. We pick her up on Tuesday and Thursday at Oakland heights. She rides the bus over there with her friend Maddie. Maddie's Mom teaches there. It is closer to us and we pick her up later so we don't ever have to wait in line.

If you look at Laura's chair you will see a red blanket--it was made by my Momma for Laura when she was about 6 years old. She still loves it. It is thread bare but has lots of safe memories in the threads.

These were inside Elizabeth Blevins' cedar chest. I would guess they were given to children. I tried to enlarge the photo and see the year. Once I recall sending Gilbert a card that had slots for money. Seems like it was about 50 cents in it. I was in college and he was about 6 or 7 years old. These are called liberty dimes, I think.
It is cool and wet here today. I think it is going to colder now.

My devotional was about keeping ones thoughts and plans on good things and not letting oneself go in the other direction. Junk thoughts were compared to junk food. One can live on junk food but what a better life one has with a healthy diet. My plan is to not fill my thoughts with "empty" doings today!
The man that came with brother Gary to take away our dead Ash tree for his fireplace died suddenly of a heart attack. He was only 57.
I am working on an afghan for Astrid. Laura found the pattern and it is an easy one. It uses two strands of yarn at once making it heavier.
Our taxes are due and we will deposit the check in the County's drop box this weekend. Mom always worried about paying taxes. She would ask me each year, have you paid your taxes? It was hard for my parents to pay the taxes on the farm each year. Sometimes they even had to borrow the money for the taxes from the bank and pay it back in installments then it was time to pay them again. Have you paid your taxes?

It was dress up day and she has on the old Whirlwind colors. I love the way the pic is distorted I guess from the angle Laura took it.
