What has been the best part of your weekend?
It's hard to choose as there were so many already.
My Mom stopped by to see
if I wanted to go with her to the Annual Fall Festival at church. I was knee deep in some serious fall cleaning but her timing was perfect. I completely forgot about it, ( I know, shame on me, ) but I did need to take a break so, of course, I tagged along.
( Isn't this a great picture of my mother. It was taken on Mother's Day this past spring. )
We stopped late at the church celebration, this year called the
Angelic Christmas, with angels on every table, a cookie walk, bake sale, ( we both came home with a box of cookies, yum, ) crafts,, treasures and the Soup, Salad, Dessert Luncheon. Again, we went right at the end of the affair, so we did not eat, but most important, we got to visit with some of our dearest friends, young and old. This little gesture of Mom's made me realize that I need to get back to church. It's been weighing on me quite some time.
Earlier in the day, while I worked at that deep cleaning, my son and nephew, the lumberjacks/hunters/ goof-balls, stuck around long enough for me to take their picture. Nate is on the woodpile and my Andy is the tall one giving me a smile. What crazy fun guys these two are....cousins and friends.....
another story, another time.
I hate having my picture taken, especially when I haven't been taking better care , but just one with my baby....
I love you boys, but ENOUGH already!
Dang, I knew if I hung around talking too long, this could happen. I can't stand those ' zerberts.' I always have to cross my legs, or, well, you know....
This sweet picture of my GrandLoves was taken a couple weeks ago. They are so cute and handsome and stopped in, too.
They and their dad, my oldest son, were heading to the woods to move a box stand. Rye was anxious to go 4-wheeling with her Dad. Josh just wanted to ' get-er-done,' so our visit was brief until tomorrow. This age the kids are too busy to sit for long in one place. Hmm, I guess that applies to just about any age.
We had other visitors show up on the trail cameras.
And just when I thought the bears were all tucked in for the winter already...well, it has been pretty warm out yet, in the 40's during the day, and nights just below freezing. I guess this fella is filling his belly a bit more before hibernation.
The deer are so alert! I wonder if they are watching more deer coming in, crows, turkeys or are they being chased during feeding time....they must hate that. Kind of like political interruptions during dinner. Just plain rude.
Click on any of these photos for a closer look. This doe has the prettiest face...those eyes., those beautiful eyes.
Look at this little guy. He has Got to have a headache.
He must have tangled with something during the growth of his tiny spike antlers, or is he calling me a ' looser!'
I doubt that. He looks too kind to be a bully.
That's it for this evening. Thanks for stopping by and reading this tid-bit. If you're still here, I appreciate your kindness.
Come again real soon.
