Biker Boy....

Even though it was a very windy day..
Little Mr took a bike ride in the countryside
He went quite a distance...
and stopped by a stream for a rest...
Maybe for a bit too long....

Up With The Sun..

That was some walk ...
Nearly eight miles
I left in semi darkness..
and got home in blazing sunshine.. 
tho the moon is still out..

Then and Now...

and now..
The first pic appeared on my Facebook memories today. 
When I think back to the nausea,the needles and the scalp, face and mouth full of sores.. 
having a bad hair day is nothing!!

Little Miss and her Cancer Walk

Well she did it...
with a bit of stopping to wave at people and pick a few daisies. 
A mile is a long way for a 14 month old who has only been walking properly for a few weeks. 
Well done Little Miss...that medal is justly deserved..
and so is the nap

Mothers Day....Part Two

I had a lovely Mothers Day... I hope all you Mums out there had a wonderful day too. After a morning at church... hubby took me out to lunch at our faves Mexican restaurant.. Not very healthy.. but.....
And of course the highlight of the weekend..was to facetime with the kids and grandbabies... the boys yesterday.. and my girls today. MrD always has that face when we are talking to the 'Little uns'
I'm very privileged to celebrate two mothers days.. My first was in March for the Uk Mothering Sunday... when I remember my mother who left us so suddenly 15 years ago...and who I miss so much.
Today.. on my American Mother's Day.. I get to celebrate being a mother.. to my three amazing children.. who have been through so much.. and have grown into incredible adults and given me the greatest gift ever.....my three gorgeous grandchildren. 

Jamie, Matt and Caroline.. 
I love you very much and I'm proud to be your Mum

Grey Skies..Roses.. and Hummingbirds...well...Nearly

I'm not complaining cos you know me and the heat... but it's been another grey day here in California....and almost felt like rain 
The coolness suits me ...though I still have a fan on at night...and I'm sure many ladies can relate? Anyone else sleep on the edge of the bed with one leg outside the covers? MrD... on the other hand....thinks it's still winter.... 
So it was a perfect morning for walking and I found the most perfect rose.. in both shape and color. 
I did also spy a pretty tree which had loads of hummingbirds around it. Every time I tried to take a photo they disappeared inside the foliage. I swear I heard them laughing as I walked away......

Murrietta..Here I Come...

It looks wonderful
I have packed the old swimsuit.. and I hope to wear it even though I look like a WWF wrestler. It's been over 20 years since I have been in a pool.. so I'm looking forward to it
Pics to follow.. but maybe not of me
