Late Mother’s Day post

It’s taking some time, but I’m getting caught up on blog posts!

As you know, Mother’s Day was earlier this month, and now the month is almost gone. We were invited over to my daughter and her husband’s house for a nice Mother’s Day dinner. She prepared a wonderful meal which included ham and vegetables, and I contributed home made dinner rolls. Yes, I contributed because, well, I can hardly go visit anywhere without taking some kind of bread!

Attending were also her husband’s mother and grandmothers and aunt. We all had such a good time. They have a beautiful place out in the country with a huge front porch where we could sit and visit. They also have a pretty extensive brick and concrete patio area out front so chairs and tables could be set up out there for everyone to eat.

Their homestead is nestled under huge old pine trees and is almost at the end of a dead end road, so it’s very private. They were actually married in the yard of this property when it was owned by another. The house is laid out well and is two story, with bedrooms and a full bath on the second level, kitchen, large living room, laundry, and half-bath on the main level.

They are on enough land to have a small garden and some livestock, including goats, turkeys, chickens, rabbits, and guinea fowl. While they are probably less than a mile from the nearest grocery or discount store, the property seems like it’s far out in the country due to it’s location off the main highway. So pleasant!
