My simple pleasures

Susan, of Christian Writer/Reader Connection is featuring a writer you may know on her blog today. If you'd like to read tips on how I write for publication, check out Susan's blog, scroll down until you see my picture and please leave her a message.

My Mother's Day weekend was delightful. Friday evening, my oldest granddaughter visited. Saturday, my daughter and I went to yard sales and lunch. Sunday morning my son and his family came over.

Sunday afternooon hubby took me to Magpie's in St. Charles for my favorite lunch on the patio, then a sack of Grandma's Cookies from the best bake shop in town, followed by a stroll along the river in Frontier Park on a balmy sunny day.

I received gifts: a pretty bracelet, my favorite candy, a cute pair of jammies, a photo of my great-grandmother...oh let me tell you about the surprise photos. My aunt Lu moved to St. Charles, so I stopped by to see her and my cousins, Jerry and Jim. I thought I would surprise her with a copy of  our family history. She surprised me with family pictures of my mom and dad, and my brother and me as toddlers. I  have been in my glory all weekend.

Welcome to my new followers. I am so glad for every visitor.

Your Mother's Day sounds ideal. My Mom and I spent a lovely day together complete with lunch and gifts.
