Started the day out with a strong cup of coffee and a 2 mile run at Gibson Park...(the cross country team did much more; I don't even pretend to keep up!) The sun was dripping through the trees like melted butter, making the spider webs sparkle. I stopped at the observation deck and listened to the cicadas and crickets and noticed that slightly colored tinge that the trees are starting to get. Where did summer go? I thank God for His handiwork.
Daily Buck (how I made or saved a buck): I have such awesome neighbors!! Saturday one of our neighbors was having a yard sale, and at the end of the day she and her friend were struggling to get the tables back in the house. Mike went over to help them. Today she dropped off a bag of the most delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies. Nice. Yesterday, I was on my way to Goodwill and offered to drop off another neighbor's donation. She gave us a cantelope. And here's the confession: She told me she had sheets in the bag and I had to check them out. I didn't keep them all, but I did get a couple of sets...and since she reads my blog, thanks, Debbie!! And then our "corner" neighbors brought our goldfish back last night. They watched him and the cats while we were on vacation and I sorta forgot about the goldfish. They also brought a couple bags of donuts and some bread. How nice is that? In return, they picked tomatoes while we were gone. We got the better end of the deal...thanks Murphys!! See, told you we have nice neighbors!!
