It’s time to take a look back at September…
September was a wonderful month of gatherings, homecomings, reunions, birthdays, and completed projects.
Early in September we met up with a dear long time family friend Timi and her daughter for coffee while she was visiting in Seattle.
We so enjoyed hearing the news that our new little nephew from the Ukraine was home in the U.S.A. with his forever family.
We celebrated Dear’s birthday with our kids on the Western side of the Cascades.
I flew to Southern California to spend time with my pop and extended family on the anniversary of my mom’s death.
I got to see Timi again with her sister Milla when they came to an open house at my sisters home. The bottom of this collage is of my mom and Timi and Milla’s mom together in Persia.
We celebrated this little ones birthday at the open house, too. Fun cupcake times!
While in California I picked up my pop and sister to head to the small Russian cemetery where my grandparents and other relatives are buried. I wanted to see my grandparents headstone.
Before I flew home two of my sisters and my niece met up for a dinner together with me. Delicious.
The long anticipated main floor bathroom renovation was finally completed. Sigh…
Other projects are well on their way at this old house. The siding and upper window are new as of September. Rows of cedar will finish off the top.
I read two Inspector Gamache books by Louise Penny, How the Light gets In and The Long Way Home. I splurged and bought this one instead of waiting for it to be available from the library. I now have read all the books in this series. I feel like some of the characters are my friends…
Some other things that happened this September were soccer games, small group start up, and a new eating and exercise program. I’ll share more about the last two when I see some good results!
I’m thanking the Lord for another full and fruitful month. Thank you Cheryl for hosting Gathering the Moments.
