Good Morning

Good morning my friends!

Now that I have recovered from my weekend and done a little catch up around the house, it's time for a quick post.

I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I didn't have my traditional sit around and sip my coffee type of day. My day started out here

Yep, hubby and I were in Memphis, TN. We traveled down on Saturday, to spend the weekend with our daughter in law. We left the two boys home alone for the weekend. They behaved very well this weekend, no horror stories of chains on the fridge, or locking each other  out of the house, like the last time we left them.  But that's another story in itself!

Sunday morning, we had breakfast at the hotel, and drove out to see Graceland. We've made many trips to or through Tennessee, but have never made the time for this adventure. We only spent about 3 hours touring his property, but it was interesting. Did you know Elvis had a twin brother? We didn't know that.

After our sightseeing, we rushed back to the hotel, changed and made our way downtown. We spent a couple of hours with Lindsey and her family at the University of Memphis law school graduation. Doesn't she look cute in her cap and gown!

We are so proud of Lindsey. Now the hard part for her, preparing for the bar exam. I know she'll do fine. And even though my son Chris couldn't physically be there with us, they arranged for him to see the ceremony

Via the Ipad, he was able to Skype from his location and watch the ceremony. Technology can be wonderful! He even had a front row seat to watch.

Before we headed home Monday, we helped Lindsey and her family move the rest of her things out of her apartment. Everything into storage, until closer to Chris' return home. Then everyone will get together again, and help her empty the storage, and set up the kid's house. We're looking forward to that move!

Tuesday was Mother's Day, round two. Our annual tradition is planting a tree. From my first mother's day at this house 13 years ago, this has been my gift from my boys, we've got a lot of yard to fill with trees, and I love seeing the trees grow, like my kids. This year's tree is a Japanese Maple, I love the red leaves

 This tree has a lot of growing to do! As long as all the rain we've been having keeps coming, it's growth will not be stunted.

Well, time for me to hit the road. I've gotta get out the door to my Weight Watcher's meeting, don't want to be late!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!


  1. Sounds like two great Mother's Days! I would love to go to Graceland one day.

  2. P.S. Congratulations to Lindsey.

  3. What a nice time. Is Elvis' twin alive still? Did they look identical?
    You have two dogs?

  4. Wow! You had a busy weekend. Congrats to Lindsey....what an accomplishment. I didn't know Elvis had a twin, either. Love your tree planting tradition and love the Japanese Maple. I had one a few years ago, but it has since met it's demise. I have no idea what happened. Have a good weekend.
