entering PINK, you will be 
 sprayed with colored corn starch.
if you were sleepy before, turning pink will wake you!

here's to a happy midweek.

yesterday's post had the fence, but on the return trip here came the horses.
the sun was burning off the fog,
and someone was looking for apples.

next time i'll bring some!

happy tuesday.

fence for horses

the fence curves around and holds the fog, while
the bike trail disappears.

blessings to you.

first friday - top 5

you've heard of a snow-delay?
this blog had a "first week of school delay".

here's the belated top 5 from a busy week:
5.  getting back into routine.  the first day of school is like jumping into a pool of cold water, but a predictable schedule is not all bad.
4.  starting school with a 3-day week instead of 5.
3.  working at a joyful school with kind and helpful people.
2.  building a classroom of friends.
1.  celebrating a loved one's 81st birthday.

everyday beauties. 
i hope your weekend is filled with them.

ohio river

on a cool morning you can bike by the river.
it's quiet, and the sun
throws light on the boats.
there they are - people on jet skis having fun.

a new day to enjoy.

green leaves and small arthropod

it's our first day of school.
perhaps we'll find a few of these in the bushes near the playground?

peace to you!

golfing, and learning to drive.
her cake
 and cupcakes won awards at the ohio state fair.  
 here are some entries in different categories.

edible art.

ohio state fair - sky ride

have you ever been on the sky ride at a state fair?
it's a great way to rest after a long walk in the heat.
you can see the animal buildings, and
enjoy the view.

the food stands look like miniatures.

have you noticed the deep-fried trend at fairs?
hungry for a deep fried snickers bar?
even the animals look like toys.  

beautiful agriculture.

a peaceful thursday to you.

we visited dear friends who
are moving out of this house.
it's packed with memories from other times when
the children were small, and rode laughing in the golf cart while a special relative drove
up and down the small hills.

there's the ohio river in the background, flowing past this
 beautiful place.

joy to you.

spun bicycles, cincinnati

here's the place where they love their work, 
and do extraordinary things.
you can buy a bike or have yours fixed.
if you need customizing, they can do it.
they even added fenders to a little girl's wheelchair.

cool competence and rolling beauty.

joy to you!
