Joe’s sons


Joe and I got a chance to go out for a bite to eat at the Barnacle. We had Bloody Mary’s, a cup of chowder, and we shared a seafood platter. The food was delicious and the view of the harbour was stunning.

Joe’s oldest son , Ryan, came up for a quick overnight visit. It was wonderful to have all three of his boys in the house on Sunday!

The leaves of the chestnut at Crocker park are falling now. I noticed that the chestnuts are very few and small. I wonder if it is because the tree is old or if this is a bad year for chestnuts in general.

My granddaughter had surgery to repair the cleft in her palate. All went well and she will be able to go home today.

I love this old book and put it into a place of prominence every autumn. It was published in 1937 and has beautiful illustrations at the beginning of every chapter.

  1. Looks like a wonderful week!
    So sorry to hear about your granddaughter but glad all turned out ok. She’s a cutie!!

    I love autumn decor and white pumpkins!

    Family time is always wonderful.

    Enjoy the weekend!

  2. I really do have to look this book up on Amazon. I was scared at first when I saw Abigail in the hospital. So glad she is doing well. What beautiful men, you sure have a gorgeous family.

  3. I hope your granddaughter makes a speedy recovery. How lovely for the family to be together. It definitely feels like autumn now outside with nature changing X

  4. How nice to have all the boys there are once! The restaurant with the harbor view looks wonderful. Our leaves are just starting to turn. I hope they stay on a while before dropping off. I’m glad your granddaughter came through her surgery well. That book looks so nice and fallish.

  5. So glad you’re sweetie pie of a granddaughter is doing well after her surgery and can go home. And how nice having all the family together. We have a buck eye tree in the yard and the buckeyes were huge this year. I think it’s because my hubby trims it every year. Maybe the chestnut tree needs a good trim? The view of the bay is lovely, a perfect spot to have a seafood dinner!

  6. Your granddaughter is such a cutie. So glad her operation went well
    I love the decorating touches you have about your home. That old time book with the white pumpkin on top is such a great fall look.
    What a treat to have all of Joe’s sons home at the same time. It’s evident that your family values family time.
    It is certainly the season for chowder. Now I need to go look for some. I’ve never had a Bloody Mary. It looks festive.
    Do you ever gather the chestnuts and roast them? I’ve had them in England but we bought them from a street vendor.
    Have a good week.
    Blessings, Susan from FruitfulWords.
