Five for Friday - on Sunday

Hi!  It's been such a long time since I've done anything with my blog.  The month of October was pretty much a blur ~ my mother passed away after two weeks of home hospice care.  She had dementia, and for the past two years we watched as our once vibrant and talented mother shrank into a teeny little lady in a wheelchair.  She held on for two full weeks as six of her seven children gathered around (one brother lives in Florida and wasn't able to be here the whole time).  It was a difficult time, but we spent time chatting, laughing, and crying together.  Even though she couldn't participate in the conversations, I'm sure she enjoyed hearing it.  It was terrible and good at the same time.  She is now whole ~ singing, quilting, and walking hand in hand with our father.

1.  My wonderful mother.  May she rest in peace.

2.  Last Sunday Emily & I went for a walk at the Indiana National Lakeshore.  It was a beautiful autumn day!  We didn't go by the lake, but hiked on trails that we have been visiting since the girls were little.

 Amelia hitched a ride on Mommy.  She stayed snug and warm!

 The Bailly Homestead  When the girls were younger, this old house was open on Sundays.  Sadly, lack of funding for national parks has shuttered the doors.  I'm happy that we can at least walk around this historical home.  Located on the Little Calumet River, this was the home of fur trader Joseph Bailly.

3. Macie in a cat food bag.  She loves it when the cat food bag is empty ~ it makes a tasty hiding place!
