Kate Collins

Whew! I'm taking a quick break in the action to write this so I can go back to the fun. My son and daughter are home for Mother's Day, and we are three bizeee people!  We've moved furniture, fixed a doorbell, shopped, planted pots and pots of flowers (you can see a photo of two of those pots), made food, and grilled out, taking advantage of a quick break in the weather -- wait, is that yellow glow -- could it be -- the SUN?

And before long, we'll be eating organic beef burgers, sweet potato & onions in foil packets, baked beans, green salad, and as a tribute to my mom, her famous Pecan Pie Surprise Bars. Also on tap is a bottle of champagne.

It is Mother's Day, after all.

Then an after dinner walk and we are done. They will have to drive back to their respective homes and I'll get to relax and smile over the lovely day.

We're very close, my kids and I, and I'm so appreciative that they can and like to spend the day with me.  I hope you, too, had a lovely day in whatever you chose to do.

And now, back to the festivities.
