Do you know your state emblems?
Recently we had a quiz and I was made aware of the Indiana state motto, Crossroads of America. This month will prove it true as we welcome visitors coming through almost every week.
I so enjoy the fresh flowers we get to pick at the community farm.
Sunday was Karen's birthday, but we didn't celebrate till Monday night meal. I made her favorite--peach pie.
Tuesday evening we had a dear family over for dinner and fun. They are a family of artists.
So, where's the mom?

Michael, my very own resident artist, had a very sad thing happen to one of his prized pieces.Ready at last to be bisque fired, it suffered a fall in the kiln and the lovely dancer broke off of her pedestal, lost a leg and a few fingers. I think she is still beautiful. Venus de Milo lost a few limbs as well.

Friday evening, after a long day of many errands for me and golfing for Mike, we decided to stroll the festival in a neighboring town and eat fair food. It was unusually windy and cool so we did not linger. We did, however, stop in to visit the youth center they are working on, a vision patterned after the mission of the Red Barn in our town.
I went back Saturday morning for the Kernel Klassic, their popular 5K race and fortunately the weather was very pleasant.
Well, these are snippets and snapshots of our week.
