Don't Tackle the Grandma!: A Visit to Mom's House & A Deep Autumn Update


One morning, recently, I actually managed to get out of bed earlier than usual so my son and I could hang out with my son before we started our homeschooling extravaganza for the day.

I wore some ivory again and it was so cold outside, I got to wear my dark brown sweater with it! It was unusually cold, actually, for our weather here.




There's my son hugging the stuffing out of my mom! I told him not to tackle her (sometimes, he doesn't know his own strength, LOL, and he overestimates hers). But we both had a good time hanging out with her and I'm glad we got a chance to go.




I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style and to Monday Mingle. On Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

    1. Awww! I wish you did, too, then. I always looked forward to going to my grandmother's house, too.

      But I have to admit that part of the big draw was her sweet tea, her homegrown collard greens and her pound cakes. Yum!

      Thanks!! That quote really resonates with me.
