Mother's Day

   A brilliantly sunny day - got down to shorts and T-shirt on the tennis court this morning. Just a small select group surprisingly, as the weather was so nice. But we had fun!

   After a few chores I headed over to Judy's for a Dim Sum Mother's Day lunch. Since she is also a mother (and had run a 10k race earlier in the day), take-out was on the menu and it was delicious. Spring rolls, lots of little shrimp and pork bundles, rice and fortune cookies were served buffet style and eaten at the picnic table. Everyone stuffed themselves with only a little room left for strawberry shortcake with scads of cream. We washed it all down with mimosas (sparkling wine and orange juice), spent some time outdoors with the kids, then I headed home with a lovely geranium from Steve and Alison. It's nice to be pampered once in a while!

   I won't need much dinner tonight but will heat up some leftovers in an hour or so.
