Good evening, friends!
August is here and we will soon be in autumn and I can't wait!!!
On August 1st the month started with a super moon. Kayla was enjoying looking at it from the front porch so we ended up loading up into the car and driving out to Cooley Lake Conservation Area with the telescope. After getting far enough away from the city to get a bit of darker sky we were able to view the moon so clearly, and it was beautiful!

Today is my mother-in-law's boyfriend's birthday. We were going to have Terry's birthday party on Sunday night, but Aaron was scheduled to work, so we have postponed it until the 20th. Terry and Lisa ended up coming over during the weekend anyway. They brought a few presents for the girls, as well as a beautiful necklace and bracelet for me and a "new to us" self-propelled mower for Aaron. They are far too generous and I'm not sure what we are going to do with them. LOL.

On Sunday night "Mimi" and Terry played a game of "Murder" (AKA Aggravation and about another dozen names) with the girls. Unfortunately it went on longer than they could stay so there was no winner, but they had fun.

While they played I made a quick supper. I whipped up some sour dough biscuits, mashed potatoes and gravy. These, along with some leftover pork roast, made a nice quick supper. The sour dough biscuits are always delicious.
Here's the recipe:
- 2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2/3 cup cold butter
- 2 cups sourdough starter (See recipe below)
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon yeast (optional)

Well...that's it for now. Since it is almost midnight and I am exhausted, I am going to call it a night. Sleep well, friends, and I'll keep you updated on future happenings!
