Thompsons Lake, Sept. 26, 2013

This week has been quieter and we are trying to get back on a routine. I can’t say there won’t be times where we slip and fall backwards.

My granddaughter, Danielle, returned to her job at an insurance office and Zoey returned to spend the days with me.

On Tuesday, Sept. 17, Zoey turned 3 months old.

On Wednesday friends of my son, Dan, Sean and Jennelle LaBalle of Clarksville brought us two homemade pies, a rhubarb creme and an apple. They were delicious.

On Tuesday evening, I went to an open house at Ryder School in Cobleskill with my grandson, Brandon Clark, where his daughter Nichole is in second grade. Nichole showed us her schedule and took us to see each station on the list of all their activities for a day.

On Wednesday evening, I went with Brandon to Golding School in Cobleskill, where his son, Samson is entering sixth grade. Samson escorted us around the building to all his classrooms and introduced us to his teachers.

I had a fun day with Zoey on Thursday, as she is getting very talkative. She makes sounds and her facial expressions are very entertaining.

On Friday, I rode to Schoharie with Brandon to pick up Samson and Nichole. We then fed the chickens, went fishing, and ate dinner with Jenn Smith and Iain.

On Saturday, my sister, Pat Sykala of Schenectady came and brought an angel for Danielle to put in her memorial garden and Pat weeded my flower garden. I appreciate her help and now my garden looks neat and clean to rest for winter.

On Sunday, after church, I went with Brandon, Samson, Nichole, Jenn Smith, and her son, Iain to the Schenectady Museum where we especially enjoyed seeing the dinosaur exhibit, and the planetarium show. We got some very candid pictures with the dinosaurs. They were animated.

We stopped for ice cream on our way back to Schoharie to return Nichole and Samson to their mother.

Thacher Park fall festival

On Saturday, Sept. 28, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Pear Orchard there will be things for the entire family to participate in. There will be scarecrow contests, pumpkin painting, wagon rides and hay mazes.

The festival also hosts crafters, vendors, and goodies of all sorts.

The Thompson’s Lake Reformed Church will provide the food concession for this great event. They will offer a wide variety of foods, such as their famous soups and stews, hot sandwiches, loaded nachos, hamburgers, and hot dogs. Come and join us for a full day of fun.

Thank you

We thank Pauline Williman for her sermon on Sunday and Moe Safford for leading us in worship through his gift of music.
