Birthday Blogging Break

Heading off on a Birthday Blogging Break to God's country...North Georgia.   It has been quite a few years since I spent my birthday in Georgia.  My mother called me to see what I wanted for my birthday cake and I chose a chocolate pie.  I almost told her not to make me a dessert but then I thought,  you still have a mama that wants to treat you to a birthday sweet, take advantage of it.   Mother will be 87 in August and I am learning not to take her presence in my life for granted.   I am hoping to get two of my cross stitch projects completed while I am at Grimmwood. We need to do some clean up on the property. Marvin bought some new tools to take care of that. And we will be hosting the family potluck over the weekend. Sweet Audrey and her parents are coming up for the festivities and we will also celebrate her birthday.  It is hard to believe that half of May is over and Summer is upon us.  See you on Sunday!!

Arlene, have yourself a merry little week. Enjoy the family and yes, let your mama do you a chocolate pie. I am working on not seeing taking Mama on her all little errands as an interruption, but a joy to be with her and love on her. Lately, I have had a lot better attitude about that. Happy Birthday and enjoy!

Your birthday plans sound delightful, Arlene--enjoy that pie. I'm sure it will take extra good since it's being made with your mother's love :)
