Fall is arriving bit by bit in our corner of the world.
I'm taking an impromptu trip with my Dad and Mom to Michigan at the end of the week. My mom's extended family are all in Michigan, and we'll be visiting her Auntie (who is more like a sister) and Uncle, her cousins who are age wise my generation, but they are her first cousins. The details are that my grandma was the oldest of 9 kids and her youngest sister is only three years older than my mom. My mom is the oldest cousin and a few of her cousins are younger than me!
It should be fun. I also am hoping to see my blog friends Karen and Kathy. They are sisters in law. Karen doesn't blog much anymore, but used to write Blue Barn Bulletin, and Kathy blogs at Kathy's Cottage. I'm hoping the timing works out!
We went over to our friends home this afternoon and other friends were also there! It was so fun and wonderful to spend a beautiful afternoon and evening together. Roasting hotdogs, eating chili, salads, apple crisp and ice cream. We enjoyed a fire and there was a hay ride too!
I am always grateful for time together with these friends. Their friendships are a gift to us.
I hope your weekend was sweet as well.
