Beauty & The Beast ~ Our First Day In Maine

Thursday, August 28

1 (1)I am going too begin with the “beast” ~ Hezekiah’s 1981 Chevy Malibu. ūüôā

1 (2)This is the floor board – or lack thereof ~ as you look at he ground below.

2 (1)Heze and his friend Wil spent three days installing flooring and working on other things to get it ready to run.

2 (2)Every so often Heze recruited Grandpa to take him to the parts store for something.

3 (1)While they were doing their thing, I blogged, then made a fresh peach dessert for supper. I saw it in a magazine I was reading on my Nook as we traveled to Maine the day before.

3 (2)There was real whipped cream, cream cheese, yogurt, and graham crackers. We used chocolate crackers since that is what Diane had on hand.

4 (1)When the dessert was in the refrigerator, I went outside to look for some beauty in their yard.

4 (2)Since the colors matched, I thought the next picture was fitting between the flowers.

4 (11)Diane is a caregiver for Cynthia Рtaking her for groceries, helping her clean, some days driving her to her beach house, etc.

Diane wanted us to meet, so brought her to the house. I have been hearing about Cynthia for many months so it was nice to see her.

4 (12)Back to the beast.

Toward evening we heard a sound outside that indicated the car was running.

4 (13)Heze said, “Wait, Grandma, we aren’t ready for a picture yet.”

5 (1)Toward dark they called me outside. They were ready for the picture! ūüôā

5 (2)They were also ready for some fun.

5 (3)Somehow my mind went back to the days when I watched Dukes of Hazard with our boys.

5 (5)It’s a good thing they live along a dead-end road. ūüôā

5a (2)After they left, I looked for¬†some beauty in¬†Mark and Diane’s garden.

5a (3)Diane told me these are called Honey Boat Squash.

  1. Love the flowers, both in daylight and at night — and the squashes are really pretty too! It’s nice that you haad a chance to meet Cynthia — now you’ll know her when Diane mentions her.
