Back Home

I am now back at home after 7 weeks.  My dogs were ecstatic to have me back.  But I am still missing my son and family and all my feathered and furry friends.  I have written about them over on my 'Beauty around me' blog and will be putting pictures there too.

Bye Chicago

And so it is out last day here.  My grandkids have gone back to school.  So we go back home.  Leave takings are always sad and I can already feel the missing.  I will miss too, the beautiful area around here to walk, the beautiful sunsets and all the wildlife--birds, squirrels and the occasional chipmunk.
It's been a good summer.  Wonder when we will be able to come back.  I guess if my husband and I remain healthy we can think of returning after a year or two.
Goodbye Chicagoland and all my furry friends.

End of summer--almost

Schools here in the Chicago burbs will open week after next and then my husband and I will return home.  We have had lovely weather and have had a relaxing time.  I got to read oh so many books from the library here, (my daughter-in-law and grandkids are regular library visitors) and from my DIL's extensive collection of books.
But of course there have been horrific happenings in other parts of the US, which we have watched on the news and has made us somewhat scared to go to big gatherings. 
Anyway, we helped with looking after our grandkids and now they will go back to school and so will not need someone at home all the time and so we return the day after school reopens. 
I will probably post pictures of nature from close up that I love to watch, in my other blog Beauty around me.

It is getting really quite crazy how so much of the stats on this blog is coming from Russia.  Should I worry I wonder.  At this rate I may become a conspiracy theorist!!!
