Friday Favorites - September

September 11, 2020

Hello blog friends and Happy Friday!  

I have my Friday Favorites - September Edition:

1.  Crochet Progress on Appa
I made a little progress working this week on crocheting Appa for my daughter.  In case you missed that post you can read about it here.  This project has many little pieces to crochet and then I needed to attach and sew the pieces to the head.  I will be working on crocheting parts of Appa's body next.  It should be interesting to see how this all comes together.

2.  College Dorm Room Food Shopping
We needed to do some food shopping at Trader Joe's to bring my daughter back to college.  It's been a long time since we've shopped there and we all had a fun time picking out food.
I decided to try out the creams and I like the way they make my face feel so soft.

3.  College Drop Off
We took our daughter back to college last weekend and it was a success.  We helped her move everything into her dorm room and set her up.  We can't wait to visit her in a few weeks and I miss her already!  LOL!
4.  Outdoor Dining
My husband and I went out for lunch after the move to an area near the college.  It was a beautiful day to sit outside and eat lunch at an Italian restaurant called Costantino's Venda Bar & Restaurant.  

5.  Flowers and Vegetables Growing
I took the photo below of the pretty pink flowers while taking Bosco for an afternoon walk.

My daughter planted cauliflower this year and it's growing pretty big.  I've never seen purple cauliflower before!

6.  Halloween Candy
While I was shopping at the drug store, I notice the Halloween candy out on display.  I'm not sure if the kids will be out trick-or-treating this year.  😕

7.  Bosco Waiting for Evening Walk
I couldn't resist taking this cute photo of Bosco.  He waited patiently for me to get ready to take him for his evening walk.  This cutie will be 13 years old next month!  🐶

Our thoughts and prayer are with those families who lost loved ones on September 11th.  Let us also remember all the firefighters, police officers, and emergency personnel who gave their lives to save others.

Wishing you all a happy Friday and weekend.

  1. Yes, I’m just not sure if they will allow trick-or-treating this year. I just went to Trader Joe’s yesterday, so fun. Glad you got your girl back safe and sound, you know that I know how much you miss her! Appa is so cute! Happy Weekend xo

    1. Thanks Andrea for the blog visit. This year will be different for the trick-or-treaters for sure. I LOVE TJ's and it's always fun shopping there. I'm happy the college move in was a success for my daughter. I'm having fun crocheting Appa. Have a great day and weekend.

  2. I'm glad you got your daughter back safe to college it's always sad when they leave but it's good that you will be seeing her again quite soon, that looks like a lovely place where you had lunch. I think Halloween will have to be put on hold this year just like most things. Bosco is really cute I hope he enjoyed his walk, good luck with piecing Appa together that's my least favourite bit. Have a lovely weekend. x

    1. Thanks for the blog visit Linda. Yes, I'm happy we can visit my daughter in a few weeks and our lunch was nice. Bosco is so good and such a cutie. Appa is coming along and now I have to sew him together. Have a nice day and weekend.

  3. So glad the college drop off went well; wishing your daughter a fabulous school year! Your Italian lunch afterwards looks really delicious.

  4. Looks like a busy time! Hope your daughter has fun at college, it's nice she is nearby so you are able to visit!

    Hope you are having a lovely weekend :)

  5. The flower is a nice thing to see on a walk. Bosco does look patient. I hope all is well with your daughter at college.

  6. Love to see the progress of your Appa! It is turning out greatly!
