Sweet Visit and Home Sweet Home

Hi Friends,

I'm back home after a lovely visit with my mom. We had lots of laughs and cries and visits with old friends and shopping and lovely meals out. Never any cooking for my mom when I am around, we go out something she rarely gets to do. So nice to shop together.  We can help each other and give advice on look and style! My mom is such a sweet sweet lady and I love her dearly!
We visited my brother and family, and my niece and her son were there, that was an extra bonus. Tommy is 3 and so handsome, don't have a picture, you will just have to take my word for it.

Here's a picture of mom, a dear friend and myself. Mom in the middle!

So as always, so hard to leave, but it was a wonderful memorable week. Memories will be keeping mom going for a while. I have to get her up, but so far can't persuade her to come. She is not a good traveler or lover of change.

I came home to my honey and Jack. All happy to be together and spend the weekend catching up.  Fall is here, BUT we are also having an Indian summer. Lots of warm temperatures, 80's, and the last of our flowers and leaves changing. I walked around and took some photos. This all took place while I was gone, not really.

Here are the last of my flowers in the yard, still pretty, but going fast!
                                                                 Love my Froggy, peeking out!

Among my many errands, unpacking, food shopping, cleaners etc. I was still able to go to the farmers market on Saturday. A good farmers market is still one of my favorite things to do. Who doesn't love fresh produce, crisp apples, pumpkins and bakery treats?! Here is some of my "bounty"!

Well, this is all for now. I will be back real soon, with some new happenings and a knitting ta-daaa!
Thanks for welcoming me back and visiting my nest in blogland. I do love your visits and comments and look forward to reading what's new in your world.
