good morning sunshines,
i hope all your mother's day was enjoyable. and thanks for the birthday wishes on saturday. i knew we were in for a big time and it certainly was -- non-stop in the most delightful way. i'll post some pictures later today.
it is so beautiful where my sister lives - so serene and lush green surrounding by small mountains. there's a nice back porch and yard with lots of room for everyone to play. it was great to se.e my niece and hubbie and two littles ones and another two 4-legged little ones. precious little girls. luckily, they have a motor home, so they could make it in 7 hours without all the stops for breaks. they were havign a picnic on the front lawn when we arrived, so we joined right in. my sister was beginning to stress, but she's a pleaser and was trying so hard to do everything. i could "roll-ate" around and i had my own seat. by the end of it i was toddling myself b/c there were baby/dog gates the rollator couldn't fit through. i was fine (and very careful). it wasn't reasonable to drive home in the dark after a nice dinner from the grill. i wasn't prepared, but i really didn't care. i was happy to sleep on the sofa and mother took the only available bed. i'm the early riser, so i found my way to the coffee maker, then sat outside on the porch and listened to the wonderful morning sounds as i soaked in the fresh air from all those gorgeous trees. and then one by one, the others woke and we had a huge breakfast.
mother and i left in the early afternoon to head back and enjoyed our memories of all the good times. i gave her a big hug and thanked her for 60 years of mothering me! i made it in and melted into my sofa. it was oddly quiet as i heard the gigles and little voices in nmy head.
it's a perfect day to stay in and rest and get some household things done. the morning clouds won't clear today. i woke up thinking it was sticky and heavy, then saw the humidity is 96% as if i needed confirmation. no rain predicted here, just air so heavy it's like being under water. i need to clean the fans today and put them into action. i'll tend to my little friends first and enjoy a second cup.
looking forward to hearing about you today.
hugs n hope for a gentle monday
good morning all,here's one pic of my mother and trulee. she wanted to share her mermaid dolls with mother to play. she's the one in the hip brace which you can barely see. she's ready to walk, but has some trouble, but her legs will be strong enough when she's out of that thing. you just can't hold children back! her brother is in the pool with grandma (my sister). i think she had a great...
good morning all,it's my sister's birthday and we're going to their house in the valley to celebrate. she has a flight tomorrow at 6am, so it will be an early day which works for me. i wish i could drive and mother would be the passenger. i made some crunchy chickpeas in the air fryer last night and nearly ate them all! way better than chips which i really don't eat.news flash! i spoke to...
