Good Morning Friends,
How are you? How was your weekend? Ours was pretty chilly. And filled with family. Last night we went over to Bonnie & Zhongren's for "the last supper" with Colin & Mailing...last supper before they move that is. I could tell that Colin was pretty stressed. The movers had come on Friday and boxed things up and then came back on Saturday and loaded their truck. Col said it would have been easier if they were moving the entire house...but they are not. So, they had to be sure things that were boxed up were supposed to be boxed up and things that were left were supposed to be left. The movers will be back on Tuesday to pick up Colin's car.
Dinner last night was nice. So glad that we could all be together again. I made a lemon meringue pie for dessert.
We made dumplings and had a lot of delicious side dishes to go with them.
Thanks so much to all of you for your kind words. I know that so many of you have children scattered around the country...and around the globe. Texas is not really all that far (compared to the year Colin spent in South Korea teaching English!!). And we do have plans to visit them. And, they will be back this way for four different weddings this year - April, May, June and October. I just hope that all goes well with taking the cats on their flight Wednesday. It will be an experience, I'm sure.
Other than that, not much happened over the weekend. I found a little time to knit, stitch and read. Mabel continues to entertain us and is loving going outside. So far she is sticking around and we noticed that she tends to watch the birds rather than chase them. I'm sure at some point that will change. Saturday we had a beautiful hawk show up two doors down from us.
He/she kept calling and then suddenly flew off and a second one flew in. Beautiful birds!
And now here we are at Monday and another work week (for me anyway). Wishing you all a wonderful start to the week. I'm hoping to get out to walk again this week.
