Good things for Mother's Day

Teresa calls her Cheetah Chomps cereal 'chippity chomps'.

Maya's first tooth fell out, much to her delight and relief.

Georgia told me very seriously about the secret Mother's Day present that she made at school. And she says that she has to transcribe a whole book for me in order to finish it. I don't think they told her to do that at school because transcription is a classic Georgia activity.

Irises smell like bubble gum. I never thought to smell one till yesterday, when the big purple ones were coming out in our yard.

All the different kinds of seeds I planted are coming up, showing their tiny first leaves. So cute. This year's crop includes tomatoes- cherry, beefsteak, lots of regular types, red and yellow peppers, cantaloupe- one Amish, one French, watermelon, pool ball squash (basically round zucchini), delicata winter squash, corn- it's actually called 'Kandy Korn' because it's supposed to be so sweet, and some flowers- zinnias, marigolds, and cosmos. There's so much bounty in the world. We're rich!

And speaking of rich, our dear friend Liza is richly talented in photography and took all of these breathtaking photos of Teresa and Maya at Katie and Nathan's baby shower. Which, by the way, was a heart's delight from start to finish. A perfect day in which I was completely filled up with happiness from being around such a great family of friends.

Isn't Liza a genius?

Wowee kazowee! What amazing photos. I'll see if I can get good prints from the webble to frame and add to the two downstaris.

Thank you all for the heart-y Mother's Day card. Many happy returns of Sunday to you, too, Bahiyyih. You are so patient and
creative with your vast brood, and with your spare (?) time. I loved hearing from Billy and Maya, too. I'd love to come to the party. What's the plan? And are you still coming to go to the Weiler bash on your birthday, Biyyah? Happy day. I hope it's real. I miss you all when we don't see each other once a month at least.

Love to the max,

Wowee kazowee! I printed out a couple to put down on the grandchildren shelf. Now I can see everyone at a glance.

Thank you very much for the heart-y card. The beautiful, loving thoughts move me. Great to hear from Billy, Georgia and Maya. I'd love to come for Maya's birthday. Any plans? Still thinking about coming to the Weiler bash? Got to get my Baker fill soon or . . . I'll . . . expire . . . . . Actually, I'm doing well and fueled happily by your loving greetings.

Oh, I guess it did post. You can tell I love you and want to see you! I'm not experiencing Alzheimers. Really. Just technical challenges.
