Just Because

Welcome Fall.  I've been waiting for you.


It's been downright cold in the mornings and evenings, in the 40's, here in the mountains of northern California.  I had to turn my heater on over the weekend, and I washed my throw so it will be ready to use.

My son went into the city on his day off from work, and he brought me back a pecan pie.  What is it about pecan pie that I love so much?

Italian sausage is always good for dinner.

One of my favorite snacks is tuna on crackers with a slice of pickle.

Luca the kitty snuggling up to Nel after the football game.

I bought this blouse for my travels coming up.  I like the floral design and the way it flares at the bottom.

This will be a short post today, as I'm just getting ready to see my little Charlotte, and have lots to do.  She's smiling already.

I told uncle b that I would be sure to take the bear he got for her.  He's so cute with his big head and small body.

Truth is, I do not like to travel, it gives me much anxiety.....but what are ya going to do?  Lots of praying until I return, that's what. 

It's officially Fall, enjoy the season.

I know you will have a great time! You look so pretty in the new blouse! That smile on little Charlotte, doesn't that mean she has seen an angel? I used to hear that about babies smiling.

Charlottes Smile is the best News, she is lovely. I m with you, i also love it to stay at home in Vienna. But sometimes i have a great Time at the end wenn i decide to travel. Greetings and a good Start in the new Week.


Aunque estamos ya en otoño, por aquí persiste un ambiente muy cálido, que nos permite continuar con la ropa de verano. Las temperaturas máximas de esta semana, están entre los 33º y los 37º C.
Feliz semana

Anything for the grandbabies thought right? Wishing you safe travels.
I used to really like pecan pie as well as carrot cake.. but my son has a nut allergy so I get to sample these treats very rarely.

You look darling in your new blouse, Sheri! Such a pretty floral pattern. I hope you have a great time visiting your newest granddaughter, Charlotte! So sweet, my friend. I also hope your anxiety will be over soon and you're enjoying your visit! Happy Fall days to you and your family!

Prayers for your traveling. I know what you mean.

I love the fall photos that you have posted. And fall is here, and you are ready to cuddle with your blanket.

One of my favorite pie's is pecan - I LOVE IT!

What do you do with your Italian Sausage - put it in a bun - add peppers and onions?

Liked the tuna, cracker and pickles too.

That bear is so cute - but not as cute as the baby!

Happy Travels to see your adorable Charlotte!
Have a wonderful time.

Pecan pie. In Burlington Vermont there was a restaurant that served pecan chocolate chip pie that was spectacular. Plain old pecan pie with vanilla ice cream is a favorite.

I roosts looking forward to fall and it hit us real fast. It's been raining and in the high 50's for the past 3 days. The house was damp and cold so we put on the heat a little sooner than expected. Your new top is pretty. Enjoy your tine with the baby.

Yay I am glad you are going to visit the new baby Charlotte! I know travel is difficult. I will pray for a safe trip for you. I don't like traveling either. Enjoy your time with your family!

Hi Sheri, your new blouse is lovely; I really like the colour combination and have one in similar tones. Look at little Charlotte with the cute smile. She is a Winner. You know the season has changed when you need the heater and the throw - welcome to your beautiful Fall. Travel can be daunting - be safe and take care. x

Marilyn Miller said...

Happy travels! Her smile makes it worth it. She definitely looks like her sister.
Oh pecan pie is so yummy and gooey! I love it, but usually only make on for Thanksgiving. Cute top, it looks perfect on you.

Debby said...

Oh, what a sweet post. Charlotte looks like you. I can totally see the resemblance. She is so cute and that little smile is captivating. You are BLESSED Sherri and I know you know that.

I do hope you enjoy your trip to see the grandchildren. I know about anxiety - although I am much better than I used to be I still get anxious and now it's when we are going to travel. That is a new one I am trying to overcome. I used to love to travel. Now it's just a lot of work that stresses me out (reservations, packing, planning) that I no longer enjoy. If I could just GO...without all the planning - buy clothes there and then donate them when I I wouldn't have to haul them back. Plus I used to love planes and now, they have become annoying. I no longer enjoy being packed in an airplane - I get off and it takes my body a day to stop hurting. And don't get me started about leaving my

So enjoy your time with family - give the grand a lot of hugs and kisses and most importantly, make those special memories!

BTW, love your new top and you are so young to be a Grandma.

Safe travels my dear Sheri!!
Enjoy your time with family.

xx oo

P.S. Pecan pie is my husbands favorite.

Jeanie said...

You love pecan pie because it was the best pie ever invented! Yes, cherry is good. But pecan? Fabulous! I love all the photos and your cute blouse and what a grand time you will have meeting Ms. Charlotte! Safe travels, my friend -- it will be terrific!

Veronica Lee said...

You look beautiful in that pretty blouse.
I love all the fall photos you shared.
Charlotte's smile will be worth the trip.

Safe travels, dearest Sheri 🌹

Donna said...

You're going to enjoy the trip! Any trip with a baby involved is a joy...
Love your photo!

I have anxiety before starting travel. Once the travel has begun, excitement overcomes anxiety and I realize that anxiety was a mask of my laziness. I must go out more often. lol
Happy autumn to you and your family!

So lovely to see you Sheri and I love your pretty blouse. And oh my goodness, you are going to be seeing little Charlotte. Heart is melting at her photo. Loved all the other cozy photos. I always feel anxious before a journey so certainly understand. Happy travels dear friend :)

Pilar said...

You look beautiful as always Sheri! Your post has so many cozy things that make Fall exciting!

Hello, Dear Sheri, I have been gone awhile from blogging, so I am catching up and I want to say, congratulations on your darling little grand-baby! So happy for you and your family!
Love your new top and you look so pretty wearing it.
I am always so surprised at how fast fall arrives, especially this year. Seems we went from summer to fall overnight, but time seems to be moving faster the older I get. Traveling is stressful, and I hope it all goes smoothly for you.
The joy of cuddling your new little granddaughter will make it all worthwhile. Baby breath is sweet. Sending hugs xo K
