Holly and I arrived safely home this afternoon; we did not travel the newly-reopened I-85, but the traffic on the other highways seemed to be responding favorably to having that thoroughfare back in business!
I have a few more stories to tell about the rest of our time in Florida, but for today, how about a quick re-cap of Mother’s Day. At this point in my life, it is especially dear to me that I got to spend the day with my mom. We finished up the last to-do on her List (2016 taxes!) yesterday morning and celebrated that accomplishment with lunch out at one of our favorite places. Of course we had to “cheers”
and then I’m so glad I remembered to ask the hostess to take our photo!
The only downside to being in Florida yesterday was that I did not get to see my favorite little guys in person. Katie made it a little better – she FaceTimed twice – first with Sam
and then with Charlie.
We spent the rest of the afternoon watching sports (bowling, baseball and golf ) and working the Sunday crossword (which we finished). Along the way, I also managed to finish all of Clue #4 on Thistle Rambles! One of Mother’s friends joined us for happy hour and the day ended with more Yahtzee – and Mother’s third time rolling a Yahtzee of ones!
I lost track of how many Yahtzee she rolled overall. We played every night I was there – maybe 20 games total? and I’m guessing she had about that many Yahtzees!! (Happy Mother’s Day, right?!)
It was a wonderful day. Happy (belated) Mother’s Day to each of you!
