It's May 12th already.

Flowers from my second son, for Mother's Day. Sunflowers just make me smile, they are such a happy flower.
This picture is FOR THE RECORD. This is my oldest son, Justin and my oldest cat, Cleo. Cleo is 12 years old, I think. Justin was quite pleased to have a purring cat, on his shoulder, while he took a nap.
Up until now, Cleo hasn't had much to do with anybody besides, Zeus and I. She has mellowed in her old age.

One of my grandchildren has given me a present of their cold. My head is stuffy, my neck is sore and I'm dragging myself around the house. I'm hoping that after my second cup of coffee I will feel more upbeat. The weather isn't helping. Another COLD, RAINY, DREARY day. It's a day I have to be in the studio for THERAPY'S sake and I think it's good for my cold, too.

The Baltimore Orioles are fighting over my two feeders. This is the third year that they have nested in the yard and I guess extended family, even in the bird world, doesn't always get along.

The morels have popped up in the market again. It's a very short season because of all the rain we are having right now. They are expensive but such a treat. I am cooking some up tonight to serve with our chicken and wild rice. They are another wonderful sign of the change of seasons.

  1. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Thanks Yvonne, I went out and got some Hot and Sour soup with some steamed rice. That always seems to make me feel a little better when I'm under the weather. :)Bea

  3. I used to live in Indiana and we ate morels. Now I live in Maine and no one has heard of morels. I miss them. Eat a couple for me.

  4. Hope you feel better! It's dreary and cold here too. I have to admit, I've never heard of morels.

  5. The gifts we receive from our grand children :O) is still worth it though. I love the dear photo of your handsome son with the purring cat..such a peaceful aspiration for us all. I would love to go to Chicago for the workshops also but it is not physically or financially fatigue is a constant companion and the weakness drives me nuts...a short drive for sure :O). Maybe next year we can find something we all will enjoy. Imagine and Live in Peace,Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart


  6. The morels were delicious. They grown only on dead oak trees, I think. :)Bea

  7. Thanks Mary Helen. I treated myself with some kindness yesterday and today I feel back to normal. I ate my hot and sour soup and took a nap. :)Bea

  8. What a great photo of son 2 and cat. Contentment. I, too, was given a cold by my 2 grandchildren! So generous aren't they? I cannot believe there is any more snot in my tubes. It seems never ending!
