Oh man – I just went down a rabbit hole that brought me to tears. I was looking to see if I’d ever posted anything about my mom’s ashes (I have not – something for you guys to look forward to) and found this post. Happy Fricking Mother’s Day. Sigh. I’m not really as bitter as that sounds – just sad today. Let’s think of happier things, shall we?

I went to a baby shower today. Look at the entirely too cute couple:
Her mother was in my wedding 26 years ago – and she was too! It’s kind of hard to tell in the picture, so I tried to make it crystal clear. Ha! She was born a little over a month after this picture was taken.
They had a cute “craft” for the guests – writing messages on diapers. This was my favorite one.

Mowing is usually (mostly) my job, but not gonna happen at the moment. I’m glad that Dr. M is still able to!

Dr. M ordered a tray for my walker. It has transformed my life! I can now get my own grits & eggs & take them to my office to eat.

Ms. Rita and Pinky Two Tone are getting ready to bust out all over…
We had book club in the evening. I’m grateful that they conference me in. After we were mostly done talking about books I started playing with the filters & then everyone joined the meeting on their phones so they could play too & it just sort of devolved from there.

New sneakers! I love them – they have a nice wide base so a slightly crippled person can maintain her balance a little better. Plus they have comic book exclamations on them – Zoom! Wow! And 25.2 which is EXTRA hilarious.

We love the view from our back deck.
Dr. M got some impatiens – I love them. (Yes, I say that about all the flowers he gets me – so?)
This picture is an inside joke – my friend Kim and I used to have a little war going on and I decided to instigate it again: Up with Penguins! Down with Bears!
That was my week – how was yours?
