Can you believe Sept is about gone and October here!
The months keeping flying by faster and faster.A neighbor has decorated their yard, I enjoy seeing the work of others.
This monster was in our front yard, almost big enough to have a hummingbird for lunch. Good thing the hummingbirds are on their way south, at least we haven't seen any at our feeder lately. So, today I brought the feeder in til next season.
I took this photo of a Painted Lady in front of the church in IA.These little red dragonflies were everywhere on the golf course in IA. This White-lined Sphinx visited our butterfly bush yesterday afternoon. It is the first one I have seen, it's bigger then the hummingbird moths.
It never stopped flying so it's a blur with stripped body.
Finished my last sewing project for a while. I bought the fun shirt pattern in TX and the fabric in TX, you probably wouldn't have guessed that. I see I got the pocket sewn on slant, I seem to have that problem with painting too, if I'm not careful, I'm blaming it on a strong right eye. Sounds good doesn't it.
Ken's working on the slide leak on the RV again, he had another idea that may fix it. I'll let you know if all his trouble works.
The RV goes in for an oil change Monday, and to see why the air conditioning isn't working, probably needs freon.
It was a beautiful morning for a walk, it was quiet except for the few birds about and the crickets.
Have been going thru my photo files, and deleting the bad, repetitive and boring ones. I've taken alot of photos over the past two years.
Have a wonderful weekend!

We have finally been seeing a few butterflies in the garden again. The Monarch seems to enjoy the Aster we planted this spring. This Tawny Emperor is enjoying our Sedum, the honey bees love it too. We have noticed that the bees population is up again from being very low the last couple of years. I've been hearing that this is a bad year for the butterflies and we can tell, we have seen very few in our garden and even fewer caterpillars.
I have had a blog now for two years as of 5th of Sept. I have enjoyed going out getting photos to share with family and friends, I hope my readers enjoy my blog.
Let's see what adventures this next year will bring, please keep following along with us.
We took a spur of the moment trip to IA, we left Thurs. morning and got home Sat. evening.
We learned of the Antique Airplane fly-in from a friend who was going, so Ken thought it would be a good opportunity to get some photos.
It was a beautiful 3 days to watch the old planes fly and walk around among them.When we were trying to find a room in Ottumwa, we learned about the Old Threshers Reunion just down the road 50 miles.
So we took that in on Friday afternoon, which wasn't enough time to take it all in.
Who would you think was performing that night, Heidi Newfield who we watched rehearse
in St. Joe a couple of weeks ago. So we got to watch her rehearse again.
Sat. Ottumwa was having their Art in the Street so we took that in too.
There were about 50 artists so that didn't take very long.
On our way home Sat. we stopped at one of the Amish country stores and bought 6 ears of sweet corn. Ken loves IA sweet corn. We knew that Brookfield, Mo was hosting the Pershing Balloon Derby this weekend so we stopped to watch the evening launch, which was iffy since the breezes were a bit strong but they died down enough for them to take off. There are about 50 balloons flying in the Derby this weekend.
We had a good time, busy trying to get it all in in a couple of days. Enjoy your Labor Day Weekend! Be like a duck calm on the surface, but paddling like the dickens underneath.
