The sun is setting and we are sitting outside. The neighbors horses are grazing in the field behind us, the kids are playing on the trampoline, Selah brings me her ball to throw every now and then and I'm waiting for the deer to come out along the edges of the wood.
The Artist and The Fitness Gal are gone to youth group and the kids and I are on our own for the evening. We played a game of Farkle and the 4 year old gave us quite a run for our money! Baby Girl won in the end though.
Tomorrow, The Traveller will be coming in and we are going on a picnic to Cunningham Falls State Park and hike up to the waterfall. Monday we are headed home.
Today Fitness Gal took me to a wonderful bookstore crammed with old books in Waynesboro, Pa. They had a stack of John Dickson Carr books! And a good stack of Agatha Christie books that I have not read. I exercised restraint and only bought one of each. 'Cards on the Table' by Christie and 'It Walks By Night' by Carr. I saw a review today on the Christie book over at The Book Jotter and thought I have to have that book and there it was! That's one of those little Joy moments! Also got 'Past Malice' by Dana Cameron on the $1 table. In Berkley Springs, W.V. On Wed. I found three good ones at a used bookstore there...'Elsie Dinsmore #1'. another Carr - 'The Three Coffins' and a double book by John Buchan.
After a brief intermission to wash the dog (after she rolled in horse poo!) the kids fed the horses some grass and carrots
We gave up on the deer coming out tonight and came in to get ready for bed, pop some popcorn and watch 'Tin Tin'. I've never seen it and the kids are so excited to show it to me. Baby Girl is going to marry Tin Tin, you know!q
