Friday in Review

This is a photo I snapped asI was waiting on the street, in my car, as a truck towing his boat maneuvered into his driveway...Photo op if ever. 
  The neighborhood is where a friend lives...and we all had a nice visit.  
Did I mention they are moving for a about 2 years.  Maybe when they return they will be in a neighborhood closer to our house.
Fond farewell.

Our tomatoes are producing.  Traded some for plums.  Yum.

I went to work on Monday..a teacher work day...and I did not even cry.  Proud of me?,%20Effective%20Steps%20on%20How%20to%20Deal%20With%20Your%20Crying%20Child%20_800x600.jpg

Responses to my wordless Wednesday were great.  
Were you one who guessed toothbrush handles? 
I love the colors together.  

LAST FRIDAY OF FREEDOM!  Next week starts teacher days.
NO CRYING IN BASEBALL???*   oh..this is not baseball, school has lots of crying.

  29. Beautiful sunflower photo, I love to see them as they make me smile. Such a happy flower! It's hard to believe that schools are starting up again. This has been a miserably, hot summer this year, but it has flown by nevertheless.

  30. wow the sunflower bordered fence looks so fabulous

  31. WHAT A GORGEOUS PLACE with those sunflowers! WOW Mary, where do you LIVE?

    Oh my, you are going back to school already? Well, I would be too, but I resigned. However, I will be called back as a substitute and on August 22, I believe I have one meeting to go to. YIPPPPPPPEEEEEEEEEE!

    I wish you the best school year to come. Surprises, challenges and joy are in store for you.

    Thank you so much for visiting with such kind words. Let's hang on to all we can before the chill comes to freeze our memories in a suspended state of beauty. Anita

  32. Hi Mary,

    I love the sunflowers and it really says that summer is there where you are.
    I will keep your family member that is in hospital, in my thoughts and prayers.

    Happy weekend

  33. Mary,
    Beautiful sunflowers. Great picture.

  34. Sunflowers are so pretty! Hope you have a great weekend!

  35. I know exactly how you feel about going back to school. Love the job, but didn't like losing the freedom I had gained in the summer. Don't aim to rub it in, but now I have that freedom all the time. Retirement is awesome. I so enJOY it! Thanks for visiting my blog.

  36. Well, if everyone else is crying, maybe no one will notice if you do too. You can tell them you are empathizing. Good luck with your school year.
