Family Friday


Sunday my brother and sister-in-law came over and we sat in the back yard with my sister.

My sister is staying at my mum’s for a few days while she gets a medical treatment.

We ordered fried clams and lobster rolls from a local restaurant and walked around the corner to pick it all up. Then we sat outside and enjoyed a wonderful lunch together.

Joe and I went for a bit of a walk one sunny morning.

The forsythia is in riotous full bloom along the old stone walls in the fields.

It’s so pretty.

My brother-in-law drove my sister here for her treatments
which gave us a chance to celebrate his birthday a little early.

Some of the children have begun hanging signs up in their windows.

It’s cheery to see as I walk to the market.

My church is open for private prayer and reflection.
No services are being held but the doors are open to sit individually and pray.
It’s such a beautiful old church I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a few pictures.

  1. Such a pretty church building!
    Love all the spring colors popping up all over.
    Much luck to your sister on her treatments and happy birthday to her hubby!
    Lunch in the backyard is something i love to do to....and i love seeing children's art these days too. So touching.

  2. I'm glad you had a good visit with your sister and brother-in-law. I hope her treatments went well. What a lovely view of the forsythia. The window notes and pictures are sweet. Your church is beautiful. It's nice they keep it open.

  3. Your church is beautiful. I can imagine how peaceful it would be to sit there and meditate and pray. It's still a bit chilly to be eating outdoors here. Nice to have family visits and I'm glad for you that you were able to see yours. Happy Friday.

  4. Sounds like you had a good visit with family and how nice to still be able to sit in your church. I hope your sister's treatments went well.

  5. The golds in nature are beautiful. That is a special photo of your brother-in-law with his birthday cake!

    I always appreciate the stained glass windows at my church. I really miss receiving Communion at Mass, but I have been watching Mass on tv.


  6. What a beautiful church. I love arches and stained glass windows! It looks so peaceful in there. We've had gorgeous days here too though today is very windy. Hope your sister's treatment is going well.

  7. Your church is beautiful. I'm glad it is open for prayer.
    Forsythia! I love forsythia! It has such happy spring blooms.
