Well it turned fall here in Ohio – it’s just about time to break out my electric blanket. Hope you all had a good week – mine was pretty quiet, just the way I like it.

A big anniversary today. Go here to read my story about it. Dr. M hit the hummingbird jackpot on this day. He posted these pictures to Facebook & I’m just going to use his captions. Pretty hummer!
Life is pretty good.
Sunday brunch at Chez Rhyne, yes?
I say yes!
That hit the spot!
Just going to top off the tank with some geranium…
I LOVE this place!

This sunflower field is just about done. I wanted to have Dr. M take a picture of me standing in front of it so it looked like they were bowing to me, but we never made the time. Darn.

The State of the Bug. I finally dug out the earring that I lost in my car. It was surprisingly easy – I just moved the seat all the way up & there it was. Why I couldn’t figure that out in July is a mystery to me. I was really trying to capture my hair in this picture – I thought it looked really old fashioned the way it sort of drooped over my ears. But you can’t really tell. Just think Ma Ingalls.
Dr. M took a picture of a hawk he sees frequently. He’s named it Tecumseh because it hangs out around the historical marker for Tecumseh’s birth place.
This soybean field totally looks like fall, doesn’t it?
The neighbor told us about an albino squirrel sighting. He & Dr. M tracked it down so he could take some pictures – isn’t it cute? He put more pictures & talked about albino & white squirrels on his blog - check it out here.

Mom & kids.
This flower (snapdragon?) just spontaneously grew between the house & the hedge out front. Dr. M just happened to look back there the other day & saw it.

We’re finally seeing some goldfinches pretty regularly.
Dr. M had a rough week. When he got home he put on this tshirt which reflects his feelings exactly.

Happy birthday Daddy! Your card is probably going to be late. Dr. M took a picture of one of our last daisies of the season.
Flags. It’s Constitution Day – did you know? Dr. M told me yesterday that it would be today, and yet when I was reading my “This Day in History” widget on my google homepage I announced to him, “Today’s the day the constitution was signed!” Um, yeah Bug, that would be why they call it Constitution Day.
We spent most of today up at the Piatt Castles. This year begins the commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The Castles are participating in the events being held as part of Ohio’s Civil War 150 commemoration. Today there were talks about medicine in the Civil War (I skipped that one), Ohio women in the Civil War (excellent), and a poet connected with the Castles who lived during the Civil War (Sarah Piatt – again an excellent talk). There were other exhibits & activities. And it was a beautiful day. We had a great time!
