It was a busy day today, helping Steph and Derek clean and paint at their new homestead. I call their new place the Farm….because its on Farmington Road, and because Derek has acquired this to cut his grass:
Isn’t it pretty!!!!
We returned from the Upper Peninsula yesterday, had a week of just about perfect weather. I kept busy picking wild blueberries from among the pines. Brought some home for a Sunday blueberry pancake breakfast, which is everyone’s favorite. Yum!
Took lots of walks with Marlo…this is what she generally looked like the whole week: Wet, tired, but happy.
Us girls went to Marquette one day, mom had a doctor appointment but we also enjoyed lunch and some shopping. From left to right: My niece, Kristin from Albequerque, SIL Patt, Sil Laurie (Kristin’s mom) and Mominlaw.
We also celebrated Mom’s 87th birthday. Last year was a pretty rought year for her, a heart valve replacement, pacemaker, and a long recuperation. But this year she is doing much better…..here’s proof
The week went by sooooo quick, too quickly. But it was alot of fun and rest and relaxation too.
