Even though we love our little Grimmwood, I was glad to get home to Decatur and back to a routine. My biggest problem is waking up in the middle of the night and trying to figure out where I am! Now that is a First World problem for sure.
Sorry for the lack of photos with this post but I just took the week off in many ways.
We visited with Ben and Katy on Saturday before we headed to Grimmwood. It was so good to visit in their pretty new home. Margaret and I shared a cup of hot tea. I had taken her an electric tea pot and some more tea to sample. Baylor is settling in at his new school. His new teacher is determined to see him make progress. She says he is capable of much and she is working with Ben and Katy to help him meet some mile stones. I know many of you pray for Baylor Man so if you could say a few extra ones right now I would appreciate it. Elliott is his usual funny self. He is into animals and he was telling me facts about some of the animals he has been studying. Hyenas seem to be his current interest
We had a good week at Grimmwood. You can tell that fall is coming. The temps were in the 70s and low humidity reigned. After a hot summer, Fall is such a delight to weary southerners. The trees are changing colors and our grass is not growing as quickly as it does in the summer months. Bad news on one of our bee hives. Again, they just up and left. The other hive is doing well so we just do not understand what is up! Marvin thinks he needs to be there full time and that could be it. Even bees need a bee man. Mother is doing fairly well. Her short term memory is gone but she can tell you stories of things that happened many years ago.
We did visit Ellijay on Wednesday. You can tell it is Apple Season in Georgia. Ellijay was very busy both at the orchards and down town. We did have a nice lunch at Cantaberrys then shopped at a few of the stores on the square. I visited Green Willow Soaps and picked up a few for me and Marvin. One was named Trick or Treat. It has a candy smell that is very nice. I am waiting for their Christmas soaps to come out. Christmas Flannel is my favorite.
I did not get as much stitching done as I had hoped but that is okay. I think I just needed a rest from my stitching as well.
I will be back visiting your blogs. I look forward to catching up with all my blog friends.
