sunset near Arcanum, Ohio (notice the old water tower - which is my favorite water tower around lol)

Noah took this photo on the way home one night as the sun was setting. I think it is a pretty good shot, especially since we did not realize the water tower was in the photo until we enlarged it!

Lincoln Funeral Train exhibit in Troy, Ohio - September 2015

Today we took our first official field trip for the school year to see the Lincoln Funeral Train exhibit in Troy, Ohio. It was pretty awesome and we got to go inside as well and check things out. They have re-created everything (they said) as it would have been on the real train. The Presidential bedroom suite Lincoln never got to sleep in the bed. He was killed before that ever happened so his ride was in the casket.

Sunday quiche

Sunday quiche...I had already decided yesterday I would make a quiche today. I really like making them and am pretty good at it now...tossing anything I have into the mix. So I whipped one up today. Dill/Parmesan cheese crust....then whatever I had in the fridge, so I had some sweet peppers and onions and spinach and tomatoes from my garden last year, which I saved mostly for the top, and I even added some chopped pepperoni (though you don't ever have to add any meat)....I added some chives and garlic and onion powder....took 2 eggs and a can of evaporated milk along with some low-fat milk....and after putting the ingredients into my delicious crust....and after adding the cheese..I poured the egg/milk mixture on top...sliced some tomatoes and put them on top....then baked in a 375 degree oven until nice and golden brown and my knife came out clean after being stuck in the middle. I thought it looked pretty good but it tasted even better!

this will always be my favorite water tower

The water tower in the town of Arcanum....where my grandma and grandpa lived. There is something about it...I have always loved..maybe because it is in the town where I have a lot of happy seems to have a personality all its own and I have many times thought about writing a children's book about this water tower. Hum........

When I was little it used to be silver, but it has been this color now for many many in fact I have a difficult time remembering it ever being silver.
