Friday Follies

Not too many "follies" here at the 'Acre....just a lot
of the same stuff from day to day.
There have been a few exciting things, and
I think my friend, Susie, had a great idea after coming back
from a blog break.

Susie wrote a list of 100 things that
had kept her busy while she was away.

I can't come up with 100, so here's just a few, along
with some pictures.

1. Big project at work...when
I was done it was a major "WHEW"

2. Caring for Mom

3. Celebrating Mom's 90th birthday

My oldest brother & friend with Mom.

4. Trying to keep the laundry up......I enjoy
the process but not the piles :)

5. Working on organizing my house
and Mom's (going to take a while)

6. Fund raising at work....meaningful
but so time-consuming

7. Taxes (need I say more?)

8. Getting ready for my girl to
graduate from college (she's my hero)
9. Mom to doctor

Mom's first doctor visit as a 90-year-old.

10. Attending a few estate sales and vintage shows with Emily
(Mom is wearing a vest from one in above picture)

Those are the highlights, anyway. I really miss
this little place when I'm gone for so long.
I try to keep up with all of you....and I think of you so often!

Back to work for me. It's my "day off" today....with
a long list of at-home chores.....which I wouldn't trade for anything.

No matter where I "roam," my heart remains at home.

It's so nice to see you back Amy! It looks like you've been very busy -- and it's all good!

What a great post, I enjoyed it very much. Kerrie

Thanks for sharing with us Amy. I think about you often. I am hoping a trip to Michigan is in the very near future. I just have to get through the next two days then I am going to try to book a trip.
Take care Jan

Nice to see you back Amy! Looks like you've been busy though. Are you enjoying Spring in your part of the world yet? I've been enjoying our weather (70's and 80's) and trying to be out doing things in the garden as much as I can.....knowing full well that within a couple of months our temps are going to be soaring!! :9

Because of our business I haven't had nearly as much "home" time as I've wanted the last few weeks....I'm like you..."home" is my favorite thing. I like your little quote...."no matter where I 'roam' my heart remains at home." I feel exactly the same way.

Hope you have a lovely and blessed week ahead of you, Amy.

Elaine :)

It is good to see you back, I was wondering what was going on. Life! It just keeps going on, and work.

Your mom is just so sweet and precious. I am sure it is such a comfort to have her close to you. Bless you both.
I'm glad to see that you are back to blogging again. I've slowed down a lot too.
By the way, congratulations to your son and daughter for their accomplishments. I can only imagine how very proud you are of each of them.
