September just rushed by this year. We were through with most of the garden, except the tomatoes. And now those are gone and turnip greens are thriving.
We had to buy a new dishwasher on the 1st. Our old one just quit cleaning on the upper level. And I chose a stainless front. I'm still not sure I like it, but I wanted a change from the black.
We went to the Ruritan cookout on the 4th. It was a lot of fun again.
K got her senior ring (gasp!). It's really pretty. She chose the school's royal blue in a marquis and the band is gold and swirls around the stone.
We finally caught up on the birthday suppers in one big dinner at Copper River on the 6th. And we learned how to play Nertz - that's a lot of fun!
My yearly checkup was all good!
Paul surprised me on the 19 with dinner reservations at Caro-Mi. It was almost 20 years since our second first date (September 23) and that's where we went then. The food is still very good, especially the apples.
We worked at the Soup Kitchen on the 21. We had a smaller group of volunteers and a larger group of guests. There were 30 small children. We had to make more treat bags for them. Lunch for us - the world famous Beacon - yum!
K took her first ACT and scored 26. She wanted 27 for the Palmetto Fellowes Scholarship, so she is taking it again in December.
On the 25th, we went to the CMS Football game. It was almost chilly sitting in the stands. Cowpens won 42-14 over Mabry.
K and her friends have been going to the ballgames. It still seems strange for us to not be going and working, but strange in a good way.
On the 28th, we didn't have power at church for Sunday School. Our class met in the conference room and opened the windows for air and for light. It was nice. And then, we had the last Evening in the Park for this year. The weather was really good and so were the hot dogs and ice cream.
And now fall has officially arrived!
