Chapter 8, Page 30, Book 09

Hello everyone,
I'm just doing an entry with some pictures for you this evening. It's been pretty busy around here since last Thursday when I went to our county fair with DD and DSIL after work. I worked all day Friday and then left for the campsite and we celebrated DS#1's Birthday. When we got there the sun was still shinning and we managed to get though with dinner and cake and then the rain moved in. It rained all night but cleared up on Saturday. We went out to do some shopping and ate dinner out that evening. It got much cooler and after church on Sunday I changed into jeans and a sweat shirt with my long johns on under them.
I couldn't believe how chilly it got. They say we reached about 65 degrees here this afternoon.
It is certainly not like August usually is. I do hope this isn't a sign of more cold weather to come. I'd like a few more weeks of summer.

What fun pictures. Glad you had a nice weekend. It was pretty cold here last night too. We had a bondfire and I had to go in and put jeans on rather than shorts. I don't mind the cool temps though. I just hope it doesn't freeze yet.
