Happy Mother's Day!

I want to wish Happy Mother's Day to my fellow blogger moms. I hope you get to enjoy your day with your children and your own moms. This year my children will not be here to celebrate with me. 
Here is mom with my daughter.
 
 I realize that I need to get some recent pictures as this one of my son and daughter is from Christmas 2015. 
My daughter will be visiting next weekend though for my mom's 90th birthday. Today we are planning to go to dinner at a nice little local restaurant called Smuggler Jack's that overlooks a small canal on the south shore of the Island. I don't think my mom will be joining us as she is not quite ready yet for that much activity. So today I am cooking a pot roast for her.

Many of you commented that you hoped that I enjoyed my shopping over last weekend. Well I never got there. By the time I was done helping Mom, I just wasn't in the mood. I think I may look online for those curtains as my time is so limited, but you never know. There are only a couple of nearby stores that carry curtains, so perhaps I will get to them soon.
One of my azaleas is in full bloom right now and still looks pretty good despite yesterday's rain. I am not sure why this azalea is two different colors as it never used to be, but it now sports light pink and coral.
There is a lavender azalea nearby that is always late to bloom. It is just starting now so I will share it next week.

Baker Beach got a little love last weekend. Although difficult to discern, I have added some medium colored blues to the water area. I hope to get some time to work on it today. That would make me happy on Mother's Day.
I plan to spend some time reading today also. I am in the midst of this book:

It was one of a number of books left at my school for others to enjoy and it is pretty good. It is sort of a mystery/romance. Really easy reading which is what I need when school is in session.

I am joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. On Monday I will join the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching. 

Thanks for stopping by!

You have a lot more done on your cross stitch since the last time I checked in. It is so lovely. The azalea is so beautiful. We don't have them here. The winters are too severe. Maybe the azalea is trying to match the colors in the gorgeous sunset you are stitching . . .

Happy Mother's Day to you too Cathie! What a sweet daughter to make your Mom a pot roast. I'm sure she enjoyed it. Your children are adorable and I know you miss them not being there. I had a call from my son but wish he was here too.

Your azalea is gorgeous and in full bloom. And Bakers Beach is coming along lovely. Happy stitching! RJ @stitching friends forever 2

A quiet day with a bit of stitching sound like the perfect Mother's Day to me.

Lovely family photos and a belated Mother's day to you! Your azaleas are beautiful, I would love to have some but the deer decimate them. Your stitching is coming along wonderfully, and it certainly has been one dreary NY Spring. Mary @stitchingfriendsforever2
