Saturday May 12
About a month ago I started group messaging some girlfriends from high school after we’d found each other on Facebook. We decided we should have a mini reunion. After discussing the reunion with my younger daughter, we invited my girlfriends to lunch at my daughter’s house. My daughters offered to wait on us as my Mother’s Day gift. They prepared a beautiful space for my girlfriends and I to spend the afternoon getting caught up with each other’s lives. I cooked and easy meal of faux quiche, fruit salad and broccoli salad. My older daughter made strawberry pizza for desert. We also had a little champagne with cherries in the bottom of the glass – we had to have a toast!
There were five of us talking and laughing and getting reacquainted. The stories that were told could create a few years of scripts for a television show. I have to say thank you to my daughters for giving me a wonderful day with my special girlfriends. Thank you girls, Bea, Lynnette, Connie and Diana for making this happen. We definitely need to do this again SOON!! Also, thank you Beatrice for the beautiful bracelets, Diana for the gorgeous roses and mixed nuts (I’ll get your vase back to you), Connie for the chips and dip and Lynnette for the Orange Works ice cream. I had all kinds of questions I forgot to ask of each of you – time went by so quickly. Next time!!
The temperature was in the high 90’s but we middle aged women stuck it out and stayed outside from noon to 5. Between the umbrella and the shade cloth we kept most of the sun off of us. Michelle’s roses and peonies were beautiful.

Someone wasn’t very happy when her mama went to the store.
Early the next morning. Diana’s flowers and silence around the table.
I guess all that silence was too much. I had decided I wanted to see Michelle’s friend’s Mini Dachshund puppies. I had been contemplating a puppy for a while.……who can say no to such adorable dogs? Sunday we picked up a female puppy. Happy Mother’s Day to me.

My ‘dog whisperer’ son in law. The puppy LOVED him.
