This is May 18th? REALLY?
I woke up this morning...and that was the good news! Sonny, having recovered from his little procedure was in full helicopter mode (purring and loving) demanding breakfast. It's the most active we've seen him since he came home from the hospital. We had a busy weekend which began last Thursday. Our DIL Anna graduated from College Thursday night. She now has her degree in Business Management and was ever so glad to get that out of the way. She is sick of school she tells me. The graduation was held at the Florence Civic Center. We were on the second tier. I don't think I could have handled the third tier. I felt as though I were hanging from a catwalk as it was. We followed the ceremony with supper at the Olive Garden. They have the absolute best Eggplant Parmesan there. Okay, now here is a really bad picture...on the left is Anna's mom Judy, then me (my aunt told me I'm still looking "peaked" which is a southern way of telling you that you look like hell...I have to admit...I look like hell...but Arianna is beautiful and so is Mac! So anyway, we spent the weekend helping the kids do some landscaping. That is where the kids and Mac work and I give directions...you know: put that there, dig that here plant this now...it was fun.
Then, as I said, I woke up this morning and jumped out of bed...well perhaps jumped is not exactly what I did...I sort of grunted and groaned and waited for Mac to push me upright. I went into the kitchen and turned on the coffee pot, then opened the front door so I could see what all that blessed rain had done during the night. I closed it quickly, because it was cold out there! I'm not kidding, after I put on a jacket and went onto the porch to read the thermometer, it was 42 degrees. On May 18th. In South Carolina. Yes, Spring is still here after all. I'd be looking forward to temperatures like this in September. But in May? It is May, right?
