We've been blogging!"
Well, good day here. I invited my mom and dad up for dinner, and my son invited two of his friends, so we had a wonderful little table full for Sunday dinner. I fixed smothered steaks, Italian vegetable salad, melon salad, butterflake drop biscuits, corn on the cob, potatoes, onions and carrots and Chocolate Peanut Butter gooey cake. Well, my.... We are all pretty full, I think. Mom and Dad have gone home, and I'm going to watch Design Star tonight.
The coolest part of the day happened when I decided to bring my mom into my bedroom and hook her up with some of you bloggers! My mom is 83, on a walker, and quite opinionated, but kinda sweet (as a daughter might say). I had no idea what opinion she would have of all this... It crossed my mind she might think it was weird, out of sync with reality, dangerous, or some such nonsense. OH, no... If she could have done what she wanted, she would have been sitting here until midnight. She was soooo crazy about all the photos of your beautiful homes, the foods you fix, the tables you set, the cats you pet, the decor you have loved into existence. It was so much fun... "Click on that one," she'd say... And she wanted to go back and see Christmas at some of your houses... "Do you have any more?" She asked... Uh, well... You all know how many links we all have.... I showed her about ten, I think... and my own... She was all about taking more pictures to go on here! "Use your camera!" She shouts! She was having a blast. We stayed in here about three hours I think. My dad got the heebie jeebies and wanted to go home, so she finally did. My son asked her, "What have you been doing in there?" She just sashayed right by him and flipped out the casual, "Oh, we've been blogging." AS IF she had ever heard of the term before today. She loved it.... I was so pleased with myself and with all of you and with the day. Good time. I love you all and think the absolute best of each of you... Mom asked me how I manage to get anything done except sit here and look... "It's better than any magazine!" I agree. Have a good week, everyone.
