Mother's Day

A full weekend!  A wonderful Mother's Day with both of our girls, our son-in-law, and our 3 grandkids.  Too much good food (I have a food hangover today).  

We looked at old pictures and discussed days gone by.  After Amelia and Chris left, Fee dragged out another box of old pictures, and Erin and I went through them and laughed at hair and clothing styles.  No matter how stylish we may think we are, in 10-20 years we will wonder what we were thinking!

We found the program for the Mikhail Barishnikov and Peter Martins performance (my 3oth birthday present from Fee in 1979 & the best ever).  We still marvel at seeing those two in their prime:  they were enough to make you think you could fly, and I had trouble keeping my heart in my chest during that performance!

 I didn't take enough pictures...I was drinking Mimosas and eating and going through old albums and forgetting to pick the camera up.  Erin played with Fee's grandfather's accordion.   Mila and Bryce Eleanor ate blackberries, blue berries, and strawberries...on the bed.  

I've done my morning yoga and finished watering the garden.  I've still got some chores to finish up, but after Erin and the kids leave, I'll be back upstairs stitching and remembering what I have to be thankful for.

:) I wrote this post early yesterday morning.  Erin and the kids didn't leave until around 4:00 yesterday afternoon.  They did a little shopping, then just hung around, giving Erin and I a chance for a nice long visit.

After they headed back to B.R., I wemt upstairs and worked on the white on white blocks for Karen's class.  I got about 5 hours of stitching in before going to bed.

I'll take some pics today to show you how the blocks are progressing.


  1. Love it that you were so busy and having so much fun you forgot to take photos. Looks like a wonderful day. Love it all!

  2. What a nice time spent with family! :)

  3. Sounds like a perfect day. Love the Blue Dog.


Good to hear from you!
