It is hard to believe that it's been 11 years since the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Our day started out with some projects, Don painting a footstool and me doing some sewing. I have been saving the sewing until I had enough, so I started today.
In the afternoon we rode our bikes into Sylvan Beach and picked up a few things at Dollar General. I noticed that there was going to be a Memorial Service this evening for the 342 fire and emergency people that lost their lives in the September 11th attacks. It was a very nicely done service with members from 16 local fire companies and their trucks. A bagpiper played for the processional and recessional with a singer doing the National Anthem and Lee Greenwood's God Bless the USA. A firefighter read the names of all 342 lost souls and the American Legion did a gun salute. It was all done very well with sunset over Oneida Lake in the background.
If you are keeping track, we had all three meals at home today, but that is going to change tomorrow. Oh well, we had a two day streak! It was 48 inside this morning when we got up, so we used the furnace for the first time and it worked very well. We have also been using the fireplace in the mornings.
We had a beautiful day, mostly sunny with a high of 71.
