It has been a month of house guests and the most recent has been Rick's mom, Kitty, who is visiting from Texas. She picked a good time to leave that hot state in the south for our much cooler Michigan summer.
We've done a few fun activities (I'll post about our visit to a Lavender farm soon!).
But much of the time has been spent with long talks. There have been a few good walks, too.
Kitty is supposed to walk more and so off we go!
There were several trips to the farm market. Kitty makes friends fast and enjoyed talking with the vendors.
And of course, we ended up with such wonderful corn and veggies -- a veritable rainbow of deliciousness!
We took a long ride to show her some of the territory around here, including the ski area that is so stunning in autumn.
The views were more green this time around but still lovely. And there were some lovely spots to sit, relax and enjoy the scenery!
As what happened last fall, we sat on the deck for drinks and a light dinner -- and were scared inside by rain!
The bonus? A beautiful rainbow in the distance.
Kitty came chair shopping with us and while we were out, stopped to see the only remaining car made by the Gaylord Motor Car company.
It's really quite impressive. I did a post on this a few years ago. You can find it here.
Greg came down for a visit and it was lovely to see grandson and grandmother together.
We also visited Gaylord's elk park. We'll visit that in more detail in a future post!
There's quite a bit of land on the human side of the fence and it made for another good walking venture.
We've had some wonderful dinners and I tried out this new recipe of stacked zucchini and tomatoes by Patti of Pandora's Box. It was so good, we made it for dinner twice! Thanks, Patti!
We have another field trip coming up and one I'm eager to share with you. But that will have to wait!
More walking (and talking!) to do!
