yesterday...

DH had a Saturday off!
after he went to town for stuff...
had the truck's battery checked and replaced...
we headed for Ashmore...
now this is like 3 blocks out of town north...
I have not been down this road before...
and it's my newest favorite place...
there is a tad bit of corn left standing...
and they were working it hard yesterday...
I would love to own this space...
I'ld put a house there...
wouldn't ya just love to snoop around in there?
heading out of Ashmore for home...
we have a new road!
smooth as a baby's bottom...
then, back in town...
dummy me calling cows for photos...
only the bulls looked my way...
move on, dear...
I messed up...
that's a puney fence and those weeds just aren't thick enough...
there is color all around and more coming...
Laurie, look!
more leaves!
she has a thing about them...
love this...
she has been spruced up this summer...
steps fixed, painted...
this is the first house in town to have an inside toilet...
really...
blue skies and orange leaves...
around the square...
just a sleepy little town...
deserted on Saturday afternoons...
everything closed at noon at Saturday so you can go to town...
that's Charleston...
it was homecoming weekend at EIU...
so many went to the parade and game...

the only time this place hops is at  harvest, which is winding down...
and when someone needs help...

DH had to go in early today...
after 3 inches of rain, it didn't slow things down at all...
the farmers where hitting the fields Thursday...
thought the guys would get a breather...
nah...not here...
we were so dry...
could use some more, too...

we had a good day...
just being together...
take a drive...
watching tv...
went for a couple walks...
and played with 3 baby kittens...
nothing much better than that...
