My two brother-in-laws moved up this way to live with my sister-in-law and help her out with her big ranch home. A couple weeks ago, my brother-in-law came into town to run errands and he stopped by for a visit. I have been wanting to see a nearby lake that I was told about, so we drove over there, along with my son, to see some views of the lake.
We got some lunch first, and headed on over there. They got cheeseburgers and I ordered fish and chips. Everything was so good.
We ate on one of the benches overlooking the lake.
There are three picnic benches there, and they were all covered with engraved names and sayings. I smiled at some of them, as they were the names of loved ones in my own family.
And a cute bench.
It was a lovely time at the lake, and I'm so thankful to have family living close by now.
I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but I got a few Christmas goodies while out shopping that I couldn't resist.....a Christmas gnome kitchen towel, a glittery bird, and a chocolate coffee bar. When I got in my car the other morning, it was 40 degrees. It's already so cold here, and I warmed up with my favorite hot chocolate.
I do love the Christmas season, but I'm still savoring Autumn with my new cinnamon candle.
Have a good October week.
