Rain, rain, rain...Welcomed change.

It is nice to cool down the overheated temps. And remind us that school is in 2 weeks for us. We must get back to some semblance of a schedule around here. Getting in the bed and waking up on time~~~~? We have had a really nice summer and many blessings. The children are looking forward to school and I am hoping to change my schedule, so that I can be part of the homework and bedtime routine more this year than at other years. I have been working 11:30 - 8 pm and I have missed the evening routine for participating in the morning time with them. Ben will be working evenings now, so I hope that my job will be able to accommodate my need for this change. We will see today. It really doesn't worry me, we will work it out and oil the machinery that is our family and with 2 women and 2 elderly people Maybe not elderly, but Ben and I are elderly to the children:)(he's 50 now) Hooray!, we can work it out, whichever way.
What an interesting system of weather patterns brings in the back to school season. The weather seems to always say "We better start reminding the Walkers to get ready for back to school, they are having entirely too much fun with one-another, staying up till all hours and such." It looks like one of the angels, just walked pulling a blanket of clouds to cool things down.:) It is foggy and cooler today and looks like a day in NY in Mid September instead of a NC August day. We needed a day like this to get ready, it was just too hot last week.:) I am not complaining I love it!
We will get batteries, to take pictures.

Hi Jayne,
Yes it is over cast and cooler here too, today. My tomatoes never really got red yet tho so I am praying for at least a few more sunny days.
Elderly!! I always say people who are younger than we are are really young (LOL) so 50 not so old to me he he he. Enjoy the showers and cool temps I am getting the feeling you may see some steamy times in the near future;~)

Thanks (Josey-Psychic)I am not pulling out the sweaters yet:), but, I am enjoying the coolness. One day last week it was so hot that it felt suffocating. I am glad it cooled down and now that my knee is better, I have to get back to working on the "Woman in the mirror".

Widdle Emmie in outer space school

Emmie jumped on the bus and off it flew out into the atmosphere. There was a set of clouds with turbulence right above the house and it took a few minutes for my Emmie to buckle her seatbelt. They hit the bump hard and it knocked my Emmie out of her seat and she bumped her head. The video camera came on and the monitor looked through and stated, Ms. Emmie, where are you? You are not in your seat. Where are you? I am alright I fell because I hadn’t buckled correctly. Well jump up Emmie we have a long way to go and you have to be buckled there is entirely too much turbulence in the stratosphere for you to unbuckle now. As soon as we are through this weather system there will be straight sailing but right now you must buckle. Emmie scrambled into the seat with intensity and purpose now. She watched every cloud pass her window and her nose was pressed to the window trying to see the top of the house as it drifted slowly out of sight. Soon they were not only out of sight of the house, the sun came out brightly and just as quickly they were putting on the atmospherical breathing apparatus and the outerspherical lights. The ABA and the OL. These precautions were to make them appear to be satellites to the radar as they were out in the ionosphere. Emmie knew all about this now. She had gone to the orientation and had a good breakfast and it took them 20 minutes for her to get out past the atmospherical pull and to feel the zero gravity. It would be 15 minutes before the gravity simulators would take effect, a glitch in the system which was being worked on. Until then, they enjoyed the couple of minutes of floatation, while being connected to the seats by belt. The first thing they saw everyday was the strataflotsam. The items which had been dumped into the atmosphere by earlier generations. What would their generation do about this ecological waste area that remained floating above their heads? This was a question for the generations. For now it was the area that they had to guide through on the way to school.

My little Emmie

ran to the bus on the first day of the last year of school. 2 buns on the side of her head. She kissed me and ran at dawn to the bus. She was starting the adventure of a lifetime. I would never see that little girl again, she was going to woman school!

Are you going to Mary Immaculate?

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

Remember me to the one who lived there,

He once was a true love of mine,

Tell him to buy me an acre of land,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

Between the muddy Hudson in Jamaica Bay,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine,

Tell him to sow in it seeds of pure cream,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

And build Ice cream mountains and buildings of whipped cream,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine,

Tell him to reap them with sickles of M&M’s,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

And chew bubble gum and eat till we’re done,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell him to run it off down the motor parkway,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

After your done 50 pushups

and jog down the West Side Highway,

Then he’ll be a true love of mine…

(Don’t wait for me today dad, The kids are sick again, My tummy’s bulging again, My heart is aching again, And now there’s no love there…)

He once was, a true love of mine….So, Girls, I do beg you don't miss your Daddy,Apricots, Chocolate cherries and Pie,You have one short chance to see him on this side, Go visit him and let your light shine.
