Taking a Minute

I am going to take one minute and give a photo essay on how I have been spending my summer.

First came the Fourth of July with a parade.  Jeff, as Citizen of the Year, had to ride at the head of the line up.  He was offered a shiny red convertible to be driven in--how could he say no?

I told stories and sang songs as half of Taradiddle to kids in five different libraries across the state.

Then I attended the ceremony of my niece's First Profession of Vows to the Sisters of Life.

The next excitement was a German Feast, courtesy of our wonderful Solomon cousins.

After that it was a wedding for niece Jean and her man Will.

The entire Solomon clan

Sometime in there I finished my green shawl.

I also spent three days on vacation with my sister in law.

Now I am home.  It's been a great summer!
