So, everything else from the first half of August. I want to say that on August 2 in my back yard I saw a monarch butterfly floating serenely on the breeze. I took a deep breath, and felt the wheel turn. The season is definitely in change now, and I am so thankful. We've had not only cool nights but some really cool days, and though there will probably be a hot day or two (like today) I know that the back of the heat has been broken and we are enroute to my favorite season of them all.
I was looking up names for the Full Moons and found that the moon of August was called by some native people "The Moon When Everything Ripens." That is fitting, as there is a glut of fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs all around us now.
Between posts, that is. I dilly, I dally. I am a born procrastinator. And then there is Facebook. Where I am not limited to talking to myself. So, sure, there are some pictures.

Rain, that is. Officially, rainfall in Topeka since yesterday afternoon ranged from 0.19 in. at Forbes Field to 0.65 in. at Billard Airport. Since I live a lot closer to Billard than to Forbes, I'm guessing we got about 0.50 in. I really need to get that rain gauge put up. It's not measuring anything in the house. I suppose that is a good thing.
No, I'm not making catsup, or ketchup either. Even if I had that many tomatoes, it would still be too hot. July 22. Hanging around Gage Park looking for cool pictures. The guy fishing here must have been hot, I didn't even want to get out of the car.
Oh, Sun. July 18.
