Your Thursday is my Friday........

The clouds are moving out of the area.  They were starting to clear early morning.  The sunrises are later and later each day.  The sun shows now in the area of the next neighbors shed and I am sure I can get photos of it as far over to the right as I can get the camera to record it in the next weeks to come.

The corn has been picked on the other side of the fence from this field.  I am betting they will do it last as they have larger areas of land that need to be picked first.  I am running out of photos to share so you will keep getting corn and train pictures for a while.

The potted mandevilla plant is blooming more now as I brought it inside.  It is getting full sun inside so it seems to be quite happy.  It amazes me that it took all summer to start  blooming.

The river birch is always shedding its bark.  The leaves are almost all off of the tree now except for one puff of them at the very top.  I have been spending time out there cutting up and burning more scrap branches from the summer work.  I have two more piles of lilac scrap that has to be cut up before I can burn it.

I have seen on television that the leaves along the train tracks are now at their prime time in showing color.  We will have to plan to ride the train again next fall and be more specific as to when we go for the trip. One of the workers or crew members told us that the green cars were from the 1920s era and the orange ones were from the 1930's era.  I guess the windows are different and the older train had hard bus-like seats.  The orange one that we road in had cushioned seats.

I don't have to work on Friday so I will find lots of things to do.  I am down to two weeks of work and then I will be officially retired again. Being free will be nice and really will seem overwhelming. The finish of 10 weeks will leave memories of overwhelming experiences also.  I am glad I could do it and I am glad that it is coming to an end.  I am sure that the woman with the new baby is going to find it hard to leave her during the daytime.

I thank you for stopping by today.

I know the teacher you have been subbing for with the new baby greatly appreciates that you've been there. I have a girlfriend who has been doing a similar sub job for a lady having medical treatment for 10 weeks.
I enjoy the birch bark and oh, the mandevilla is so pretty. We used to take trips with my parents on trains and daddy especially enjoyed that. In some of the museums, they actually had the official train china which was fun to see.
I hope you both will enjoy the longer weekend.
