Day 263 of 2017

Today was a road trip day.  
I took Mom to a surprise location.  
About three quarters of the way there she finally figured out where we were going.  
We picked up my sister, 
whom we don't see very often, and had a very nice outdoor lunch 
after which we drove to a nice park by the river. 
We ate, chatted, marveled at the great bridges, saw other parts of the city, 
took silly selfies, and got caught in a very noisy thunderstorm.  
It was a great road trip day.

Day 262 of 2017

We still have flowers in the neighborhood and a crazy hot week in store,
but the leaves are changing and official fall begins on Friday.

Day 261 of 2017

I tried another new-to-me recipe tonight. 
The main ingredients are cauliflower, chicken and sweet potatoes. 
I will definitely make it again.

Day 259 of 2017

GB#3 is singing along with the band.
He was so excited when they began singing "Heartbreak Hotel."
It's one of his favorite songs.

Day 257 of 2017

While taking Mom to do some errands today 
I was able to get a couple of my own errands done too.  
I bought a new presser foot for my machine (#63 is a zigzag hemmer foot) 
and some red netting and tulle.

For those of you who own Bernina sewing machines and don't know, 
Bernina is having a sale through the 17th of 25% off on all its presser feet.
