Puttied a few window panes back into their places in the shed, washed some windows, picked beans and tomatoes and cucumbers, went grocery shopping and dropped off the truck to have the front end fixed. Fixed the beans for supper tonight. Kids all ate it heartily, though some were a bit stringy. I thought I had planted yard-long beans. Turns out I was wrong. So some of the beans had gotten too tough. Now I'll pick them earlier. Gave some maters away to mom. Ours have been doing so well. The Lord keeps blessing us with the produce in the garden.
Going to the Indiana State Fair tomorrow with mom. Kids are so excited, so am I. We always go on Farmers' Day. I can remember going to the State Fair with my mom, grandparents, aunt and two cousins. We'd get up when the sun came up and spend all day at the fair. See everything at least twice. We never went to ride the rides, that was what the county fairs were for. The only ride we rode was the shuttle "bus" that went around and around the entire fair. Grandma would get tuckered out and end up riding the shuttle around. We always took a picnic for both meals and eat at the car for the meals. Watermelon and tomatoes, cucumbers and fried chicken. And iced tea in mason jars. Oh, those were the days!
