These beets were home canned by yours truly in my All American Pressure Canner. It has been many years since I have canned anything, so I was quite pleased to put up some veggies for the winter ahead. Good thing Hannaford is around the corner, not sure how long these beets will keep us going, haha.

A beautiful early fall morning, looking out over Echo Lake in Fayette. Richard and I just had to stop and get some photos on our way to the chimney building. I've often had the urge to get those misty water shots but didn't have a camera or take the time to stop. Thanks to Richard, I'm learning to take more time to enjoy moments like this one!

Well, not actually on the roof, but right up there! Richard was a great help in constructing the new chimney. Not to diminish my very important role today, I helped hoist things up, and received whatever the boys sent back down. Lots of fun!

Train engineers would have this view of Augusta at dusk, if the trains were still running in this area. Richard and I took an evening stroll onto the train bridge over the Kennebec just north of the Water Street downtown area. Any thoughts on train service or other public modes of transportation? We welcome your comments and ideas!

... Not such casual times right now. This photo was taken of Bryan last Thanksgiving in Asheville, NC. I don't have a recent picture, but wanted to share with everyone that Bryan is helping out with the relief efforts in Mississippi. He and his friend Raphael have been in Waveland, Mississippi over the past weekend providing hot chicken meals and helping in whatever way they could. They are back in Gainsville tonight, and will gather supplies to return to Waveland, heading out tomorrow evening. He will not be coming home this coming weekend as previously planned... in the meantime, we're happy to say that he is safe and healthy, and that we're so proud of these boys for getting out there and helping.

Toby took this photo on Monday when we went to Hampden to spend the day with Avery. This little gym mat is a very cool place to play, Avery really likes all the colors, textures, and sounds. It looks like we had every available toy out, and I guess that's true. He is trying so hard to get up and crawl, you can see he's on his hands and knees here... it won't be long 'til Avery is on the move!

This weekend has given the Davis family the opportunity to spend some fun time together. On Sunday, Joline and Danny stopped in to see Ken and Janet's new house. Miss Kyla and her friends were so interested in the garden! Gram had taken them out and shown them what was growing, and the girls were just so amazed by carrots and things coming out of the GROUND, they just couldn't stay away. Here you see them exploring and talking about what is out there.

Thanks to Deb and Arnie for their gracious and wonderful hospitality! They open their home and their hearts when they put on this annual event, and we all appreciate it so much. Here is the happy couple, they never seem to miss a beat when they're together.

Saturday afternoon brought an opportunity to share families at the annual Pulkinen end of summer party held at Deb and Arnie's. It is a fun time to gather the Davis group with the Pulkinen group, and there are always extended family and friends present as well. This year was especially nice because my new family got to be a part of the festivities. Richard and I were really happy that his mom and dad, Betty and Dick Green, (you may have read about the famous "Dick Green" in the fishing reports written by David Howatt) were able to join us.
