I'm getting ready for my mother's 90th birthday out of town this weekend. The family is planning a surprise potluck for her at my brother's home, one of her favorite ways to gather. Then I'm bringing her back with me for a couple of weeks. I have no idea what we will do, but I have a hunch we will end up in the garden pulling weeds, or down by the river collecting rocks, or sipping coffee on my patio.
Maybe we will go bird watching. I have been told there are pelican down by the river. I haven't seen one yet, but I did see a bald eagle one day perched high in a tree. I'm still learning about all the bird life here. I have seen plenty of killdeer, geese, robins and quail already. Maybe I'll take Mom to Bingo at the senior center or Bible study at the church on Monday.
And I'm dying to take her out in our new golf cart. She doesn't play golf (I barely do myself) but I know she would love a tour of our lush green course. Whatever we do, I know it will be relaxing and filled with plenty of conversation. I have learned much from this still 'young at heart' woman of 90 years!
Check out our new toy, and it's all electric. I know how to drive it, just wish I
knew how to golf (one lesson wasn't enough). One nice thing is
we can drive off the course anywhere in the community.
Have a nice weekend everyone!!
