Getting caught up…

Friday night my daughter and son in law took me out for supper at The Rendezvous in Creve Coeur.  On Friday nights they have all you can eat wall-eye with salad, baked potato, green beans and hot roll.  Good eating.  Then Saturday it was so hot I didn’t leave the house except to water the tomato plants and the marigolds.  So I was knee deep in old pictures all day.

Yesterday (Sunday) the cold front came through and we had thunderstorms and rain all day.  Blessed relief from the scorching heat.  Summer isn’t through though, after today the heat will be back along with the high humidity.

This morning I have errands to run and then my niece is coming over for lunch.  And that is my boring schedule for today.  Rather boring than worrisome I think.

I have one more old picture to show you.  This one is me on the left, Ebby in the middle, Rae on the right and my little brother Billy standing in front of us.  The quality of the photo is very poor, but I was delighted to find it.  Rae, Bill and I are the only ones left of 8 siblings.


If you thought that was an outhouse in the back, yep! you would be right. 

I am going to enjoy this cooler day (high only to reach 90 today) and thank God for the opportunity.  I hope you all have a great week.  Stay safe and be happy!!

  1. fantastic memories attached to old photo's Beth, and there's many a happy hour (or 6) to had, thumbing through the packets and packets contained in a box pushed to the back of the cupboard. One day I keep telling myself I will sort them all out. Glad to hear you're joining me in cooler weather.. ;-) AND for some few days now there has been no sign of rain here.. Yaaay!!
    Have a wonderful week my friend across the water... xPenx

  2. I love these pictures! I loved your hair! I have had my own experience with an outhouse on my grandfather's farm when I was little. someday I 'll write a post about it. So sad that you have lost so many siblings. My Mom and her sister are the only ones left from her family.
    Blessings, Joanne

  3. Hi Beth,

    It is getting warmer here again, but also muggy, which I don't much like.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your week.

    Hugs - Nita

  4. My Sister and I are the only siblings left. It's still awfully hot here and still hoping for rain.Stay safe and cool.

  5. Great old photos, Beth. Just wonderful to turn the clock back for a few hours. Looks like you have some wonderful memories.

  6. A cold front made it this far today, too! It was especially welcome to the crew fighting a wildfire halfway up a mountain in Botetourt (pronounced bot a tot) county. They got 2 inches of rain in an hour. A little further east another town got over 4 inches in 90 minutes and cars were floating on Main Street. Talk about too much of a good thing! Nothing like that here, just a slow, soaking rain this afternoon. Stay cool.

  7. The nice photos lovely to look at them for bring back memories of your younger age.
    Enjoy cool weather!

  8. Nice memories. My sister and I do that when were together. Walk back though time . It is wonderful.
    Love the photo. Hope your weather is still cool. Ours sure is. Its lush green here but not enough heat. Sooooo if I over heat tell me to enjoy it.

  9. love these..and again, you stilllook the same. xoxoxo

  10. What a wonderful photo! I'm enjoying your blog! So many great photos and memories! It's important to get things written down while they are remembered! ♥

    (¸.•´ (¸.• ♫ ♪ The Rendezvous in Creve Coeur sounds like they have quite the feast set up. Mouth watering actually. I do hope that you had a yummy supper. I usually measure how yummy it is by the notches on my belt that I have to let out afterwards.
    I can only imagine how re-freshing that thunderstorm must have been. Knee deep in photos again were you. Good for us... I enjoy your photos. :)
