This summer we had a lovely 3 day visit from my brother, who now lives in Florida, and whom we haven't seen in 3 years, along with my nephew Bryce. I am somewhat mellow of a person, but with a quick tongue..LOL You get my brother in the mix and you have a full side show going.

We have also had the priviledge of visiting the Buffalo Zoo a couple of times this Summer. It was so fun to see a different zoo for a change, and especially the polar bears, rainforest area and gorilla family which our prior zoo never had. Here are a few memories of those visits:
While my mom and daughter was here, Mike and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. We decided to go sailing on The Spirit of Buffalo and really beautiful schooner with RED SAILS!!! It was so luxurious, and our first time sailing. I made sure to load up on dramamine and away we went. It was a nice experience, and also sweet for the two of us to be able to take a few hours away and just relax. We never get to do that, but since their visit coincided with our special day, it worked out just right. Thanks mom!!!
Mike's brother Dave also came over from California to pay us a vist before heading down through MA and off for a tour of Europe, where he still is currently. We went to show him Niagara Falls for a couple of hours after our cookout lunch before his leaving. We hadn't seen him in several years.
We also have begun visiting a new church. We left the one we were visiting since moving here for several good reasons. This new church is huge, and normally I shy away from huge churches. However, after visiting for 2 months now, the messages are actually good, so it may be a good thing afterall. Soon the women's and other groups will be starting up so I hope to meet some new friends!
Not a whole lot is new other than that, and looking forward to fall, and pumpkin spice coffees (recreating them at home, thank you Dunkin Donuts for the inspiration). Apple picking and acorns, pinecones and apple picking. Time to update the mantle with berries and vines and all that fun stuff. I will think on what to do with this blog. I don't have a computer at home anymore, just my phone, or computer access from the library.
Until we meet again,
