Like I said yesterday, we're home, though not without some issues. It was a 4 hour trip, but mostly on nice rural roads. After not being in a moving vehicle for 7 months though, it was a little uncomfortable! We stopped several times so Mrs. F.G. could get a break, but I stayed strapped in my chair.
We were driving through farm country, with a wide variety of barns. This is a new hog barn under construction.
There were a lot of soybean fields, some nearly ready for harvest.
Lots of corn fields too, this one with a 10 foot strip of Sunflowers around the field,though their blooms are finished now.
A lot of the corn fields are already partly harvested as forage.
A few farms had pumpkins for sale at the roadside.
We stopped at one of our favourite country stores, which started as a roadside stand about ten years ago. Not only is the store humming with fresh fall veggies, they are building a large new store behind the present one. We'll be watching to see what this turns into. The white spots are raindrops on the window.
We drove through several towns, villages and hamlets. This is an unusual church that still retains its bell tower, in the hamlet of Swinton Park.
We got home to feel very welcome!
Although we don't entirely know who arranged this.
Oh wow!!! So excited for you, Stew! It is so nice to see your pictures starting up again, I missed them and you!ReplyDelete
I love the sign, you have some loving family and friends out there. Nice that they aren't there to take credit too! Welcome HOME!!!
What a great " Welcome Home" and I am so happy to read your words today and see the photos. You have friends who care, close by and far away.Mrs F.G. take care of yourself too,maybe now you can fit in some sewing and quilting. Fondest wishes to you both, from a warm day down here in NZ, after a 3Celsius start. Not quite a frost on the lawn, but almost.ReplyDelete
I'll bet you were happy to see this door again.ReplyDelete
Welcome home Stew!!ReplyDelete
Sorry I missed it but glad you are Home.ReplyDelete
It will take time to get into a routine though using the Computer was not one of them.
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
Well that was a nice welcome home...someone missed you! :)ReplyDelete
Hooray! Good to see photos on your blog once again.ReplyDelete
Yes indeed! Good to have you back where you belong. I'm sure there will be adjustment issues, and also periods of grief as you grapple with how your life has changed. But everything you say on your blog indicates your positive spirit will help to lift you over the bumps. And what wonderful tools for finding joy and community are your camera and your computer. I am looking forward to learn how you find your way forward.ReplyDelete
Nice Autumn photos - you got quite a welcoming back - that was lovely :-)ReplyDelete
Your friends that are like angels walking on earth. Great photos!ReplyDelete
It must be exciting to be out in the big wide world again, even if viewed through a vehicle window. Are you going to need ramps to get in the door or does your chair negotiate such obstacles?ReplyDelete
Great to see the Furry Gnome's back posting photos -- even though we who follow your blog from afar can't put signs and flowers at your door, please know that deep-down we too welcome you back home and wish you well.ReplyDelete
What a wonderful welcome home Stew, soon you will be all settled in.ReplyDelete
Hello, it is great to see photos once again on your blog. Lovely Autumn scenes, I like the farm stand and pumpkins. The welcome home sign is great, it is wonderful you are back home where you belong. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day and the new week ahead.ReplyDelete
Nice to see you are able to post photos again. Another step forward indeed. I'm curious if you had a commercial wheel chair van bring you home or have you already purchased your own wheel chair accessible van?? I know you had mentioned something about that. Adjusting to your home environment now will keep you occupied for a bit. Best part of going away is coming home and for you it is doubly important and especially rings true. Welcome home Stew:))ReplyDelete
what good friends and neighbours you have to decorate for your homecoming. Enjoyed seeing the building at Conn - so much more finished then the last time we were over there a few weeks ago. Happy to have your pictures back. Welcome Home!ReplyDelete
Ah, you are a very special person. What a lovely reception for you!ReplyDelete
Ah. Make you feel loved?ReplyDelete
Bet it was nice to deal with your photos again.
So pleased you are back home.ReplyDelete
The welcome home sign is very good.
My good wishes to you and Mrs FG
All the best Jan
Though it was a long ride home you sure had pretty things to look at along the way.ReplyDelete
How nice to come home to the welcome home sign. Glad you are finally home again.
Pictures! Yay! And you are home right where you belong. Glad to know it went as well as can be expected. :-)ReplyDelete
Good that you've gotten back home, Stewart.ReplyDelete
The church is quite unusual. I'll have to look that place up on the map. I can't recall hearing of it before.
Yay! Glad you're home. And I enjoy seeing your pictures again.ReplyDelete
YAY! Home again home again jiggety jigReplyDelete
This is so wonderful. What a great homecoming. - MargyReplyDelete
