Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there!

Our chimney swifts are back again this year. The other night we were sitting in the family room and we realized that the flue for the fireplace was still open when we saw a chimney swift flitting around the fireplace! Of course the cats were going crazy!

If you look closely above the head of the second cat from the right you can see the bird clinging to the inside screen! They kind of look like bats from this side because of their long wings! We were worried about it not being able to get back up the chimney but it managed to. Last year they must showed up but didn't stay very long, They must have gotten scared away by that stinking hawk that we have roaming around! This year I hope they stay and have babies!

 We went to visit my new great-nephew yesterday. Angela had her baby on Thursday by scheduled Cesarean section due to him being breech. He's such a little doll baby! I seriously did not want to put him down!! I'm happy for all of them!

 Then we met Rich's sisters and their spouses for dinner. We hadn't seen them since Christmas so we had a nice long visit.

I was planning on going to the cemetery this morning but it's pretty rainy out right now and we have the kids coming over later for a barbeque. This may be the first year since my mom passed away that I don't go. I think she'll understand. :)

Chris and Marissa close on their house on Monday so they will be moving in all next week and probably we will move their furniture on the weekend. I have loved having them here for all this time and I will definitely miss them!!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
