A day with mom

Mom lives in a condo, and it's a really nice condo,but it's in the city. Mom has spent most of her life in the country and sometimes she misses it. So occassionly I pick her up and we just spend the day together. First we walk around my back yard.

My youngest brother lives just down the road, so we go visit him too.



I think we chose the perfect place for lunch. The resturant at Cove Lake. We ate on the patio and enjoyed every minute.





Next, a little blackberry picking at our campsite in Lafollette.







And we ended our day here. This pond is also on the property in Lafolette and it has lots of fish. Next trip we'll bring fishing rods.

Hi Connie, Sorry about your brother's friend's death. When it's so unexpected like that, it is harder I think. Prayers for him and the family.

That is so neat that you can pick up your mom and head to the country. I'm sure she loved every minute of it. She looks great ---but I can only imagine how much she misses the country.

Have a great Sunday.
Hugs,
Betsy

...looks like a great day with your mom. The blackberries look yummy. Your mom reminds me of my grandma. She was Irish and had the same fantastic hair and deep-set eyes! (Sorry about your brother's sorrow...she looks way too young. We just lost our neighbor and he was 49. Sudden and tragic is difficult.)

Thanks for the kind words for my brothers loss. Her sudden death was a shock to everyone that knew her. The people she left behind are beginng to heal. Spending the day with my mom, doing the things we love, was very healing for me.

Thanks again,
Connie
