Thursday we got moving rather slowly, for some reason. But we got over to Grandad’s house to take hike through his pasture. He owns about 75 acres (next to the house) and it is beautiful land. Meadows, wildflowers, woods — and the very loud buzzing of happy bees.
It was very hot and difficult walking. So we returned home for some cool showers, fresh peaches and naps. Then we went to Mattoon to see a movie. On the way back, I tried to take a quick picture of the Toledo courthouse.
We got supplies at the IGA and returned to Ross’s, built a fire, made S’mores and told stories under a perfect starry sky.
