A Few Days Later

Hope you moms out there had a great day last Sunday. I did!

And I know that many mothers in my town received cards. I happened to be at Safeway early in the morning to get some final things to take to a brunch at my brother’s house. I had to stop and laugh when I saw the logjam of men in the aisle for cards.

We spent Sunday afternoon at my brother’s house–one of my favorite homes to be in. My brother and his wife are easy going hosts…even dogs are invited. (Well, maybe not invited. But not turned away.)

Mother’s Day usually coincides with my mother’s birthday, so my sister-in-law had a cake for Mom, too. 82 years young! (She would be furious if she knew that I put her actual age in my blog! She’s technologically impaired and doesn’t even know how to type.)

During a lull, we realized Dad had disappeared. After checking outside and then each room…we found him! He was fine…taking a snooze.
