So proud of how the Community Center looked for the Brashear Homecoming. All of the improvements made it look very nice. Thanks to everyone for helping to make the community
center look so nice.
The Brashear Homecoming was well attended with more people than last year. There was beautiful music provided by Kim Baxter. The food was awesome too. I think the food just keeps getting better. Tom said this was so good because for a pot luck lunch most of the food was homemade. Good stuff!!! The chocolate pie was wonderful. It was still warm. Tom liked the new potatoes, green beans, and the fried chicken. You would think that Tom never gets home cooking. Thanks to everyone who came. We met some new people who had fond memories of growing up in Brashear.
Well, I have a question for all of you around. I have had hummingbird feeders in my yard for years. The hummingbirds were here then I refilled my feeders and there have not been any back. I am perplexed. I love the hummingbirds so would really like to know what is the problem. Me or my feeders or the juice I fix.
We have been lucky that we got our hay cut this past weekend. We did not get any rain though. We are hurting for rain.
We had a barking dog the other night and looked we had a coyote right by the house. We have never had one up that close before.
The Ol' Store in Brashear has opened up with a new owner. They are serving breakfast and lunch. Stop by and introduce yourself and make them feel welcome. That is what we are about here in Brashear.
I have been blessed this week with an old fashioned summer this week. I have had two of my grandsons and we have had water gun fights, blown bubbles, and gone for a walk to find mysteries. They love a good mystery. We call the houses that empty on our road mystery houses. Fun trying to make up stories about what might live there. I love those boys and their imagination.
Garden, what can I say: fresh squash, cabbage, green chilies, zucchini, cucumbers and green beans soon. I feel like I will be canning next week. The freezer is filling up. We live on the food for the winter. I have been doing this for 38 years. I even got a canner for an anniversary present. Tom is so thoughtful when it comes to gifts. Ha!
I hope everyone notices the wonderful Work Camp that is being held in Sulphur Springs this week. The effort of these kids is awesome. It is such a valuable lesson for life for helping others.
Well I hope everyone is watching the heat. Take care and drink plenty of water. Remember that everyone needs someone. Look out for the elderly in your neighborhood and make sure they are provided for.
