A Buzzy Bee and Lynn from the UK!

 Before the first snow arrived, the bumblebees were feasting.  Is that pollen on her wings?

I read about this book on a blog but I forget which blog, of course.  It's a fascinating work that addresses all of the ways in which women have fed their families in past centuries.  Not only have they fed their families, they have also informed food prep in realms outside of the family home.  It's a very interesting read!
 James and Noah's puppy is growing!  Sam and Lizzy have a new puppy, too.  He is an Australian Shepherd and gorgeous!  I'll try to get a photo soon.  Brad and April also found a pug!  He was living with a family that was struggling to give him the attention he needed (they have a newborn) so now Brad's pug-loving family is no longer pugless.
 My blog friend of years and years, Lynn, came to visit me!  It was miraculous to meet face-to-face!  She and her husband were absolutely lovely house guests.  We talked and talked and talked.  WONDERFUL!
 Lazybones is thriving.  He's taken to crawling under the covers at night.  His ears get cold.
Autumn mornings are the very nicest, aren't they?  The snow sort of thrashed the leaves but they'll bounce back.  The sky is so blue! 
 I'm meant to be sewing a few costumes.  Kelli has found some wonderful helpers so all the costume making is not falling on me in any way.  This morning I decided to look at the jacket pattern I had.  Argh.  It's WAY too complicated.  I am not a tailor.  I ordered an easier one from Etsy. 

Thank you so very much for stopping in. I really must take my laptop to the Apple Store for a tune up.  I blog better (visit other blogs) when I can sit in a cushy spot.  Creature of comfort am I!
Take care!

I have been so remiss in visiting -working full time has taken its toll!
I love the pictures of the boys and their pup. How very cute they ALL are. Happy sewing. I am looking forward to doing some of that myself. xoDiana

Always nice to meet a blogger friend.
No snow here yet. Have a puzzle ready to go for the first snow fall! : )

I used to sew all the time...when I sewed play outfits for my daughters I used a Jiffy Pattern. Usually few pieces and elastic casting in the waist. Isn't it wonderful meeting blog friends in person. I have enjoyed it that a few times. Your pictures are so fun...the boys and their dog are cute as can be. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

So very nice to meet Lynn. Meeting our blogger friends is so extra special. I met a few of mine and it was incredibly sweet.
We are getting ready for the colder temperature also but no snow yet.

When my children were young, I used to sew all their clothes and love surprising them in the morning with a new dress, or pair of PJs. Nothing too complicated.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I really appreciate it.
Hugs, Julia

How nice to meet another blog friend. I wonder if that is the Lynn that I know? It is certainly fun to meet friends from other countries.

Yes, early mornings are a magical time of the day. Love the thought that it is the beginning of a beautiful new day with the promise of a little beauty. How lovely that your blogging friend was able to enjoy some lovely times with you. To spend a little time with you in your blessed little world would be bliss.

Lynn said...

Kim is so right it was bliss spending time with you and Bill. Thank you so very much. How lovely it was to find we get on so well in real life too. Funny looking at your bookshelf to find many books that I have too!! Kindred spirits. xxxx

What a stunning image of that bee. Glorious. And the book looks fascinating. I love it that Lynn came to visit -- that's terrific!

Great picture of that bee. I've heard that most Bumblebees die in Fall; I hope that's not the case.
How lovely that you got to meet Lynn and had a good visit.

Julie said...

How lovely to meet a fellow blogging friend - you lucky girl. Hello to sweet Timothy xx

Debbie Harris said...

What a fantastic snap shot of that bumble bee!
Darling little puppy and those boys will certainly enjoy him as they grow along with him, and how wonderful for that pug and his new home.:-)
How wonderful that you were able to meet a long time blogging friend, great photo of the two of you.
I'm still hoping that we will have the opportunity to meet some day. We are certainly close enough. ;)

Have a beautiful day~

I am delighted to hear about you two blogging sisters meeting . . . How much fun. Happy sewing.

You've had snow! Amazing. October is lovely, isn't it? How nice that a long time friend came to visit!
Are you only using your phone right now to blog? That is difficult!

Terra said...

How fun to have a good visit with your blog friend, that must have been amazing to meet in person.

Marcie said...

How nice that you got to visit with a blogging friend. Love that! I am with you on preferring simple patterns. Now that I don't sew as frequently as I used to, I find that I need something very straightforward! Enjoy your cozy autumn, my friend!

Kit said...

What a fun post!! I love hearing all the fun you're having. 😊 Kit

Sweet photo of the boys with their pup. I have always enjoyed meeting blog friends face to face. How nice that you could meet Lynn face to face. Hope you have a lovely week.

Lisa Richards said...

You have my sympathy on the computer issue. I don't love blogging with this iPad but I'm also not ready to spring for a new laptop! Sounds like fun visiting with Lynn! We're having a big, windy rain storm. We will probably be leafless tomorrow. Stay warm with Tim!

Nancy McCarroll said...

Your pictures and words warm me. Poor kitty with his cold ears. But thank goodness he knows how to burrow under covers.

Pom Pom! I almost missed this post! I love your posts! There you were way down at the bottom of my blog list. :) Love that picture of James and Noah and their puppy too. How neat to meet a blogging friend, face to face.
