Guess who is coming to visit next week?
If the planets align and all is well–my almost 89 year old mom will soon be coming to visit our little house in the woods!
Last time she and Dad visited was in October, 2009.
Hey, I just found a picture of their visit. How fun.
Mom really wants to take a trip to our house–she even pondered driving herself–but we found a better solution. My brother owns a cabin halfway between her assisted living in the Thumb of Lower Michigan and our UP house.
My brother and his wife will drive her up to the cabin next week and I will motor down to pick her up.
She’ll stay here for several days, and then Barry and I will drive her back to the cabin and spend some time with my brother and his sweetie.
We almost never buy fall flowers but this October it’s so mild and beautiful (high of 73 today) that we thought maybe Mum would appreciate some mums. We’ve bought one basket of mums every week for the last three weeks, so hopefully at least one will be blooming when she arrives.
Can’t wait for her visit!
