My 89 grandmother is going in for part one of two hip replacement surgeries today.
Good karma, prayers and hopeful thoughts much appreciated today.

Gram is one tough cookie and I sincerely hope this goes well so she can get back into her beloved garden without constant pain.

Toasting Marshmallows

This year for Thanksgiving, there was a fire and we toasted marshmallows and made S'mores for dessert.

Also, here's my plate:

Hope y'all that celebrate Thanksgiving are having a wonderful day.

It's a little rocky for us, Jules spiked a high fever last night. We're heading over to my folks' though and Mom will have a look at him and the rash on his trunk.

I suspect one of the major childhood diseases and am therefore less worried about any of us getting it too.

The weather's shifted. It was warm today, but it's definitely shifted. The humidity is lower, the highs are lower and there's just that feeling in the air.

Not to mention that OMG, school starts in like, 2 weeks. September 2nd. It's really just around the corner.

Today we went down to Delaware and spent most of the afternoon in the pool. Well. The kids and I did. Sabs fell asleep on one of the lounger chairs and slept for three hours.

All perfectly good summer activities. Then there was grilled food for dinner and a drive home through the sunset.

And a walk in the dark with the cicadas and crickets going mad, to the store for ice cream.

There's a big harvest moon hanging in the sky tonight. Orange and clear and high in the sky now. It's beautiful and eerie all at once.

But yes. Summer's nearly over, time to enjoy every last hurrah before autumn tiptoes in.
Sabs just got a call from France.

His maternal grandmother, Mamie, just passed away.

We're sad beyond belief here.

Mamie was a wonderful lady, generous and thoughtful and very loving.

She will be greatly missed by her entire family.
