This is going to be a quick entry because I have a lot on my plate this week….my youngest son is visiting from New York and we are trying to fit in a lot of fun stuff.
Looking for photos to share, I realize I haven’t taken very many at all so far during his visit. I only have one more week so I better get some photos taken…at least a decent one of him with his dad and I. This was a dinner at Applebee’s earlier this week when we met up with my oldest son. We had a delicious meal and we had fun sharing and catching up.
When Mr. B called before his trip, he made sure that I knew he wanted to do some baking during his visit. He doesn’t have a kitchen where he is staying so he misses being able to make his favorite baked goods. First thing he made was this awesome apple pie! He has learned all of his skills from experience and a good cookbook….not from me.
I found this image on my phone from the month and it reminded me of a weekend morning coffee date that I had with my husband. We make coffee at home every day but sometimes it is fun to treat ourselves to a cup while we are out running errands. This day was a cold day so the coffee was very welcome. We were trying to find a new bird feeder to replace the one that is broken in our yard. Coffee and birds…two of my favorite things. Plus I love the little cup lid stickers our drive thru coffee barn uses with little hashtag sayings. Cute!
We had a gathering of friends last weekend and I created this very long table in my living room. I wanted to serve the meal family style and have everyone around the same table. The menu was simple so I could concentrate on visiting with friends instead of slaving over a stove. It is a lot of effort to create these occasions for memory making but I love seeing everyone enjoying themselves as we eat together. After we cleared the table, we played games!
I thought I would include this image in November’s post…definitely something that feeds my mother’s soul. I can borrow my friends kids and share the joy of watching them grow into awesome people inside and out. I have at least one afternoon a week with this girl, Miss T. She is my nature loving counterpart and we share a love of being outdoors and learning about creation together.
Happy end of November!
