On Monday, the first day of Autumn, we received a beautiful thunder and rainstorm. As the storm approached, I commented to hubby that the storm coming over the Selkirk Mountains sure looked like it held snow to me. We got our rain, and as dusk approached the clouds lifted....and lo and behold, there was snow up on Schweitzer and the Selkirks! Beautiful! I took a few shots last evening of the view, but this morning's view was just spectacular, so I am sharing that photo here:

Last week we hit the county fair - checked out all the entries (I took two 3rd places, two 1st places, & a reserve grand champion for my photography & papercrafts!), ate the *best* bratwursts around at the Wurst Man trailer, petted the critters (took photos to add to my galleries), ate a delicious elephant ear, and had a great time visiting folks! Whew! Such fun!
Over Labor Day weekend, we had a house full of young adults. Our 2 sons and a multitude of college friends came and camped here for two nights. I cooked pizzas (Papa Murphy's are mmmm mmm good!), and the rest all homemade: fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn on the cob, sticky buns, salsa, chocolate chip cookies, french toast & bacon, pulled pork & bbq sauce sands, hot caramel corn.......... all heartily enjoyed by our family & guests! Everyone enjoyed video games, Bananas family comedy videos, horseshoes, darts, croquet, and keep-away giant frisbee. A wonderful weekend!!
