Mother's Day

Today may go down in history as the most beautiful Mother's Day in recorded time.  Okay, that's an exaggeration, I'm sure, but after such a long and hard winter, today should receive some sort of special accolade.  The weather was perfect for the day, and there'll be no argument about that, I'm equally certain!

Another reason it was at the pinnacle of days for me was my visit from my daughter and grandson.  They took me out to brunch and then a tour of some of our favorite shop-by-looking (mostly) stores.  We both picked up some necessary items, some frivolous ones, but nothing very expensive.  No, we did not forget the young man who was with us, either.  We went to one store especially for him so he could look for something he collects (no luck, unfortunately), and we also bought him a lovely blue T shirt.  He arrived in a long sleeve shirt as it was cool in the early morning when they left their home, and by noon that shirt was just too warm.

When we returned home, it was time for a lunch for g'son, a nibble for daughter and me, and a mini-nap for daughter.  Unfortunately, after that they did have to return to their home.  Big hugs, lots of kisses, and they were off.

Sigh.  I was a bit lonely after they left (D spent the weekend at "Bonsai Camp") and found it difficult to settle down to anything.  When D came home, things perked up as he had a very fine time.  I will try to get photos of his trees if the weather will permit tomorrow; he's really doing some nice work and feels good about it, too.  

It was a fine weekend for all of us!  Was yours?


  1. absolutely! Very happy you had a good time with daughter and grandson. And today is beautiful so get those photos!! (please)

  2. I can't believe that bonsai people don't honor Mother's Day! But it does sounds like you all had a perfect day. So who's to argue. I, too, had a lovely day. I heard from all three sons. Always wonderful.
