A week later was my Mom's 80th birthday, and we celebrated at our old church with afternoon tea. She had a delightful time, and there was lots of we yummy food. I was lucky that Mary, Karen and Polly were able to help get things set up. Here she is with her friend Josie, and so many others where there to celebrate her special day. Unfortunately, we had a pretty tight timeline for the day as Andrew was flying out, and we had to take Mom back to her apartment then head to ours to gather Andrew's belongings, grab dinner and then take him to the airport. He got there in plenty of time- who knew that the world's busiest airport would be a mad house at 9:00 pm on a Sunday! Poor kid didn't get to his apartment until 1:15 am and he had to be in the office the same morning. I know his dog Cocoa was thrilled that he was home after being gone so long. He was fortunate to have the concierge from his building help him with dog sitting.
The next day was Steve's birthday, and we had a low key celebration of just us. He wanted bacon and blue cheese burgers with onion rings no cake. The burger were yummy and we spent the evening watching TV and he opened his cards. Needless to say by the time the long Memorial Day Weekend rolled around I was ready for some down time. My weekend started early when my boss let us leave at 2:00 on Friday. I got the apartment cleaned and the laundry done. I spent Saturday organizing the nook and crannies that tend to get cluttered this time of year and get stuff ready for donations. I worked on some WWKIP items, and some other "administrative" duties. Sunday I was able to go on a bike ride, the first of the season, and it was great. I spent the rest of the weekend doing some knitting planning. Here's all the projects laid out.
I wasn't lying when I said May was filled with highs and lows! I'm looking forward to June what it will bring. I have plans for a staycation which really means TONS of knitting. Work is also easing up and having time to walk away from my desk to have lunch has been quite a treat. What are you looking forward to in June-yea I can't believe it's here either.
