One of the things I try to do with my mom when I swoop in for a visit, is hang out with her at her lake cabin. Sometimes the weather just does not cooperate, but this fall has been warm and wonderful. The area deserves some relief since their summer was beastly hot and humid. The day we chose to visit the cabin, the sky was bright blue and all of the lakes looked so inviting that if I would have had my suit I would have jumped in for a swim!
Spending time with my mom doing what we have enjoyed doing together all of my life, is still refreshing! While I was basking in the warm sun of Central Illinois, Seattle set a “rain record” for the month of October.
