Thursday, June 27 - WI

Happy Birthday to my nephew, Aaron.  And also to my Mom who would be 91 years old today.  She was a sweet woman and got never got to see her family grow to what we are today - and I feel cheated at times that I didn't have that mother-daughter relationship later in life.  Well, that's life.

Pat, Frisco, and I took a nice, 3-mile hike along the Yahara River Trail this morning.  It was really nice, but wet and soggy in spots.  The plants are lush and we could identify a few wildflowers along the trail.  Frisco had a ball too.

When we got back home, I went shopping for the last few items that I need for Sunday.  I think I am ready - maybe not emotionally, but materially.

Dawn called this evening to see if I was interested in having wine and desserts with her friends, aka The Stitch N Bitch Girls.  I went and was so glad I did.  I had met several of these ladies before as one has a swimming pool and I've gone there with Dawn a couple of times.  The food, wine, and conversations were great and the setting was absolutely gorgeous - an old farmhouse at the end of a long, country road, with gorgeous views of good old Wisconsin countryside.
