Post Mother's Day Post

I woke up Mother's Day morning to the sound of birds chirping out a varied melody outside my window.  The sky was blue with white, puffy clouds scudding by.  NO RAIN!  It was a perfect time for a walk, returning to enjoy a steaming mug of coffee on the porch while Andrew prepared brunch.

This lovely boxed arrived on the doorstep Saturday afternoon.

Edible art!  Had I taken the photo this morning,
the heart in the upper right and the chocolate three spaces to the
left of it would be missing.  I shared with Andrew as an after-dinner treat.
They are as delicious as they look!!

These gerbera daisies are the most beautiful red wine color.  
My camera, with the light at hand,  just couldn't quite capture that color.

I spent the rest of the day reading The Secret Chord, Geraldine Brooks' latest book and enjoying phone calls from the boys.  Later, we headed out for dinner at Sage.  It was a very good day!
