The nice thing about being a grandma and a mother of grown children is that most weekends are mine...well, mostly...I do have a husband too!
I have been mostly wandering around my house, doing this and that. Weekends like this are nice, they recharge the soul.
My husband is very sports minded. Today he is flipping between the Chicago Bears, Nascar racing and golf...yawn!....he would be watching the Cubs if they were playing...after all the Cubbies have won their division! The Cubs have long been known to be cursed and haven't won the world series in forever. Cubs fans are going nuts. I used to follow them way back when I was a child...I even kept a score sheet while I watched the games. I could name the whole team, one of the players, Ernie Banks came to my grade school. He had a motto each year...that year it was the Cubs will shine in 69. boy that does age me. I think I still have his autograph.
Today would have been my mother's 69th birthday. She's been gone for 8 years. Time is a weird thing...it feels like so long ago...but I can still feel her all around me. She is missed.
It's still unseasonably warm here in the Midwest, but no complaints from me. Liz and I went to the nearby Methodist church this morning. I've gone many times over the years. I tend to be a wanderer when it comes to church too. We went to the contemporary service...as soon as I walked in an older lady I've know forever grabbed me and hugged me. "Thanks, Donna" hugs are always welcome. She promptly scolded me for my wet hair. I love that.
We all could use more hugs!
