Project 366: Day 176

As you read this, my nearly 80yr old Mom and two of my nephews are in a car heading north. Their destination is Amherst Shore, Nova Scotia. My family and I hope to head up that way before school starts.

We spent Saturday hanging out with my Mom, getting one last visit in with her before she left. Of course, I had my camera with me, and I planned on snapping a shot to use today. Unfortunately, I couldn’t decide which picture to use, so you get all four. You’re welcome.

I hope you take a moment to give thanks for the good in your life. Today, I’m giving thanks for the fact that my Mom is still able to make the three day drive to one of the best places on earth, and I am thankful we will join her later.

  1. Bless your mom, Lenore. She looks so vibrant and happy, ready to take on any new venture. Hope all of you enjoy the trip.
    Blessings – Maxi

    1. She was certainly vibrant on Saturday, Maxi. Knowing you are heading to your home away from home will certainly put a nice pep in your step. 🙂 She’s arrive tomorrow.

  2. You have her same cheeks!! She is ADORABLE. I can’t wait for you to join her (except what about me? Who will cheer me on and check in and look at my 366 and read my blogs?) ! Temporary insanity. At least i didn’t ask you to stay.

  3. Love all 4 photos!!! Your mom is fantastic!!! I just got back from spending a week with my 82 year old mom—so blessed to still have that chance!!!!

  4. Really fun pictures of mom. She looks great. Then again, she loves being with Joe-Joe and Chuck-Chuck, and that comes shining through in these pictures!! (Not to mention she is excited to be heading to the Shore…)

  5. Oooh I hope you will post pictures from there; Your Mom looks so delighted to be there and so do the boys. One of your very first comments on my blog had to do with the fact that you’d summered in Nova Scotia 🙂


    1. If I don’t post pictures while there, MJ – I will certainly post pictures when I return home. I think I mention Nova Scotia to every Canadian I meet. 🙂

      1. Good move. I’m actually north of the city, so depending on your bypass route, I may still be able to offer you assistance/directions/coffee/respite if needed.

        1. We drive well into PA – through Wilkes-Barre. We cross into NY at Port Jervis on I-84. Then we take I-84 through to Worcester, MA. It’s a great and scenic drive.

        2. We drive well into PA – through Wilkes-Barre. We cross into NY at Port Jervis on I-84. Then we take I-84 through to Worcester, MA. It’s a great and scenic drive.

          1. I’m close to 84 – anywhere from 30-40 minutes depending on the exit!

            You’re right, it’s a beautiful drive. Except for there being no easy, quick way to bypass Hartford!

          2. As a kid I was always amazed at how close the interstate seemed to the buildings in Hartford. As an adult I still think the buildings are close – but I think the cars are closer. Tight, tight, tight.
            I’ve made this journey by car nearly all my life, and while the drive is long – I never tire of the sights.

  6. That’s three characters you have there, Lenore! No wonder you had a hard time choosing just one, all are good. I can’t wait to see pictures of Nova Scotia!

  7. Cherish all the special moments like these with your beautiful, precious mom and boys! Time goes by too quickly. I miss my sweet mother so very much, but looking at the photos of her with our family brings me much peace now that she is gone. Hope your vacation is a special time with your loved ones! Take lots of pics to share 🙂

    1. Will do, Donna. We are incredibly grateful she is still truckin’ so well. And, I look forward to spending time with her at the Shore this summer. I will certainly take many pictures. It’s an addiction. 🙂

  8. Hmm… what is the ‘four’ shot version of the trifecta? The Quad… der… lah…
    Yeah. That… really… rolls off the tongue. Guess I should have just gone with trifecta-plus-one.

  9. My gosh, your mom looks AMAZING for almost 80! I hope you do get to Nova Scotia; that seems like such a wonderful place to visit. And I’m glad you included all of the pictures here 🙂

That was my thought on the matter. Your comment?
