First, I just have to share this adorable picture of my son, his baby, and my nephew and his baby.

We went up north for the long weekend with family from Iowa. Had a nice time even though the fish weren’t biting on Lake of the Woods. It was just too windy. Which was fine, we had many other things to do and people to visit. I also read a couple wonderful time travel stories while traveling the six hours up and back. Reading always revives me and now that I’m home, I’m ready to dive into writing my next story—already on chapter three and I’m loving these characters.

In just the few days we were gone the plums seemed to double on their branches so I made plum jam this morning, and will do another batch tomorrow I’m sure, as well as one more batch of raspberry. Isabelle loves the raspberry, Hayley likes both the cherry and plum, and Karlee, well, she eats just about anything.

It’s sad to see summer coming to an end. It seems like just yesterday was June and September seemed so far away. But fall brings new activities and events to look forward to, so all is good.

I’m off here for now. Promised Papa I’d make a coconut cream pie today. Have a wonderful week! Oh, and For A Sister’s Love is still on sale for .99 cents.

Sounds like a nice weekend. We're still haying. Should be done by the end of the week. Your jam sounds yummy! Cute grandbabies!
