"Every house where love abides
And friendship is a guest,
Is surely home, and home sweet home
For there the heart can rest."

Taking some time.....

...just to relax! I will be taking a blogger's break this coming week. There has been so much going on here that Jos is taking a week for us just to do some things here in Holland that we have been wanting to do. We also have a new heater being installed up at Cranberry Cottage and have to be there when they come to put it in. We want to visit a museum or two and just enjoy some relaxation between doing odd jobs around the house.

May I introduce you to my sweet little namesake. This is my great niece Abigail Lynn. Her mother was also named after me so this is #3 Lynn. She is almost 2-1/2 months old but already holding herself up in a sitting position.

I am going to spend my weekend enjoying the beginning of autumn. It is my favorite season and I want to soak up every moment of it! Have a great weekend wherever you are.....

Oh, there is our beautiful Abby, she just calls out to be hugged and we are both too far away. Not fair. She is just a little doll.
Hope you get done all you plan to do.
Love you, Mom
