The Weekend Wrap May 19, 2019

What can I say? We had another weekend that was mostly cool and rain, until Sunday night, when it got very humid and we had a thunderstorm. First of the season!

Saturday I had the TV on listening (?) to the Rome Open Tennis, and the Preakness Horse Race. I managed to get quite a bit done, except I have not solved Jack’s computer dilemma.

Suddenly Thunderbird has stopped working for both of us. I switched to SeaMonkey, and that is fine, but the menu font is terribly small and I fear that Jack may have trouble. Still, he has to do something, because he cannot send an email.

Our email provider is no help with this, and so I keep trying to find answers. I spent far too much time on the computer, trust me on this!

Anneliese is doing well, and so is Lili. Today I took off her bandage and panties and let the air get at her belly. She was very grateful!

We are still waiting for our fruit trees to blossom. However, we do have a peach tree with few blossoms and we had one adorable Hummingbird that was enjoying the nectar!

Isn’t she (or he) adorable?

We also have had Blue Jays and Chickadees and also Baltimore Orioles. I am so enjoying the birds this year!

The Weekend Wrap ~ Mother’s Day

Sunday was Mother’s Day. The day for us was a rather nice one. Although we had high clouds and did not see the sun, we had no rain and in fact, the air was very dry and clear. When we were driving around I could see the beautiful mountains in the distance.

My day started very early. 5 AM! I’m not sure why, but I have not been able to sleep after 5:45 in a few months. However, I enjoyed the quiet and the coffee and the company of my fur children on this Mother’s Day.

Jack got up and I made an omelet for us, and it stuck like crazy to the pan. Time for a new non-stick saute pan!

So later in the afternoon, we opted for the Chinese Buffet again. I opted to go there for a few reasons. 1. The food is good. 2. I wanted to find out if, in fact, the former owner had retired. (He has.) 3. The Buffet is set up the handle a lot of people and usually has no lines. (It did not and we got our favorite seat!)

The new owners really have much better food (although I loved the former owner, he was so kind),  and we enjoyed everything. Including Alaskan King Crab Claws. I ate mine right off, and once they refilled the dish, I got some for Jack and I even cleaned the meat out for him! What a wife!

20190512_141144So we’ve watched the Madrid Open Tennis, Jack is working in the yard, and I am enjoying the late afternoon watching a movie. All in all, Mother’s Day was nice.
