Getting together was great. Desert refreshing and wine divine. I noticed today that the Knockout roses at Townshipline Kroger had the same die back and those were just put in a few years ago. The weird weather must have affected most of them city wide.

Home again

I returned Wednesday evening, 11 hours and 683 miles…

Got lots done in preparation for my folks big 70th anniv. party….expecting around 225 people.  Had the deck man here yesterday and also the landscaper….cement man yet to pay a visit too.  Nothing will be started till July when our turn will come!  First is deck, then new sidewalks and some cement pads for storage areas, and last the landscaping.  It will be August by then!

Not certain, but I think I can have CC next Wednesday night, my only good night.  Will send out an email.

Matthew is flying up for the weekend, going to the Indy Gran Prix race tomorrow with Steve, all of us to the Counterpoints show in the evening.  Celebrating Mothers Day in some way on Sunday!

Happy Mothers Day to you all too!

Busy Days

Now that Spring is here days are busy with all sorts of activities.
Friday we drove to Wheeling, West VA for the night and then on Saturday drove the last hour to Pittsburgh where we met Calvin and his parents. Calvin cheered his parents on at the start - 7 a.m. and saw them again at the 3 mile mark before falling asleep. We went back to the hotel for breakfast, play time, and another nap before seeing them at mile 25 to give them the last cheer to get them to the end.
This was Rachel’s “come back” marathon - her first since having Calvin 10 months ago! Zach ran with Rachel and their time was 4 hours 31 minutes…only 35 minutes longer than her personal best time.
After the race - checked out, drove to Cincinnati where we spent the night in Mason - drove around the area. Sunday…did a 3 mile walk in out “not new neighborhood”, saw our “almost but not new house”...drove home, did a 25 mile bike ride and enjoyed dinner in the gazebo.
And now…to cut the grass, miscellaneous yard work and laundry.

Susan…the signs I made…the starting line one was rather long…to the tune of Down by the Bay…Down in the Street, where the runners all will meet, back to your room you dare not go, for if you do, your mother will say:  Go out and have fun in the miles you run.
The second sign had a smiling Calvin picture: See my face?...Enjoy the race
The third had a very concerned looking Calvin picture: Are you doing okay?
and the finish line sign said: May I have your banana?

I laminated them so they will probably be used in other races…

CC at my house

Got back from Honolulu on Friday….been a whirlwind ever since, trying to get back on track.  I am no good to have it here this week, and next week I could have it either Monday April 30 or Tuesday May 1 because I am driving up to Minnesota on Wednesday the 2nd.

Or ~ we could wait until I return, which would put it to like May 15, 16 or 17. 

Or ~ someone else could go ahead and have it before that!

Time to come back and plant in your yard. The weather here is finally turning into spring. I am fighting with myself to not overdo in the yard. Last week I was saved from my sore back by an individual yoga class but can’t count on that every week. I agree with Woody on the interesting cloud formations.
