Hope everyone had a wonderful mother's day. My daughter and her husband made me dinner last night - london broil and spinach with bacon, yummm. Tonight they brought home a wonderful real, fresh, cherry ice cream and served me a perfect 15g portion!

One of my special needs sons presented me with a bright pink bag with a bracelet inside - he knows mom likes jewelry LOL.

This weekend was a Jack Russell Terrier trial, both days. Exhausting and wonderful. I managed a couple of home made cookies and kept my bg really level all weekend.

The dogs are exhausted, as am I. They did beautifully, my terrier friends all commented on how wonderful my 12 year old looks. Great fun racing and various performance events.

When I got back tonight my son-in-law was ready to plant his first garden... oy! Being the teacher/coach, I got to sit in a chair sipping my iced coffee and issuing instructions. What a great way to plant tomatoes and peppers LOL

Oh boy, Linda. I am a (mediocre) calligrapher. I still have some really fine papers, and find myself just taking them out and fingering them sometimes. My husband never used a pen other than a fountain pen. I miss the 'old days' of quality!

Linda I get so upset with the postage and the prices of paper (not to meantion envelops) that my daughter just takes it away from me! LOL! She says the computer will do all I need. I wonder though sometimes.........................

Hand written letters....sigh! Every once in a while, I long for the feel of fine writing paper; not only the kind that you can get at Hallmark's or book stores, but the type of paper that's sold in art stores. Hand made...WITH a ragged edge. Of course, that quality of paper calls for more than run of the mill ball point pen....a sticky blot on such fine paper would technically be considered a grave offense....akin to a sin! No....nothing less than a fountain pen, and REAL ink for such treasured parchment...India ink! I would have to do a rough draft first, so as not to chance wasting the "good stuff"....and since I'm at it, might as well write a couple pages, to make the effort worth while. Folding the thick stock carefully, so as not to create unnecessary creases...the letter is slipped into an envelope of complimenting colour, and sealed. Cannot post it directly in the box, as it's an off size....so it must be taken in to be weighed. HOLY MOLEY....have you seen the cost of postage lately? If your letter varies ever slightly more than the suggested weight and size...slap on a fortune on stamps! So....with the effort taken, the cost of paper, pen, ink, AND postage....who can afford to write any more!! But....Every once in a while, I long for the feel of fine writing paper;
