|The New IKEA shelves|
|Cheryl is in charge of "Books and Accessories"|
Also, Cheryl has been dying to spend money and replace our existing furniture! I'm not sure why; must be a female thing. This may be one of those great chasms that separate the men from the women. The "old" IKEA stuff was still good, but the color was "off". So, after we painted the walls a bright white, Cheryl thinks the shelves in the living room need to be white as well. I guess it looks OK for me not to protest too much. (Aside from my snarky comments in this blog. that is.)
|Cooler Weather = Long sleeves!|
|Running down the Coralville path.|
|Cheryl chases the Geese|
|Note the Police car stopping the let the geese cross|
|Aster in the morning sunlight|
|A close up! VERY bright Purple.|
The picture does not do the wild Aster justice. The purple is BRIGHT! But the bright light of the sun tends to wash it out in the camera. I possibly could have adjusted the light filter, had I remembered at the time. Ah well, it is just for the blog and not for a National Geographic award. My standards are just fine.
|Why so many pics of the Aster?|
|Is it because I love purple so much?|
Additionally, I captured a couple pics of a Caterpillar that I have never seen before. Close up, it looks like a colorful dessert cactus!
|Actually, it is the last flower left!|
After the run, we grabbed some grub and headed tot he soccer field for some kite flying! This is the first time I have been able to seriously spend a little time flying one. I have a small, store-bought one I picked up at Springtown Grocery ( Amish Grocery store). It flew pretty well after a few adjustments. The wind was perfect for flying. Lately, the air has been heavy and stagnant with humidity. Maybe the cooler weather will also bring more breezy days.
|Note how he looks like a cactus up close!|
|Great day for Kite Flying!|
|Small, $3 store kite flies high.|
|Time to dig up the yards of Wellman.|
|And tear up some fences!|
Hope everyone else is having a pleasant fall day today. And thanks for stopping in and reading this rather lengthy post. Basically I have several days of pictures to publish at any time and not enough time to write. And possibly even less in the future. We shall see.
