Marvelous Mother's Day!

The weekend started off in a lovely way, meeting with my knitting group -- always a fun and refreshing time. What a neat bunch of women!

Son has been home for a few days; it has been GREAT to see him again and have him around the house. It was his first visit home after moving to California 7 months ago. He has been very busy visiting friends, so in and out of the house a lot. That was expected.

Today, Sunday, was Family Day, so we got to see more of him. A few of us went to the Twins (baseball) game, and they won! We're hoping this is a first step in a big turnaround. Watch this bottom-of-the-league team make history and get into the World Series! (One can dream, right??) My vegan son was even able to find a decent-looking meal to eat at the ballpark. Hooray for varieties in the food options!

I wasn't able to see daughter today, but she had some lovely flowers delivered. They're beautiful!

Today I got to present a quilt to my niece (also home from the west coast). She loved it! I worked on some knitting during the baseball game today. Gotta keep those hands busy!

Tomorrow Son returns to his new home and I, his mama, will return to missing him. Well, c'est la vie! Thank goodness for new technology such as Skype. Moving far away no longer means losing touch. Isn't that great?!

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Sad that your son is leaving again, but you will see him again for the next holiday.

Looks like you had wonderful weather. It rained all day here, but I like rain. Very peaceful.
