The weather has turned cool again. The recent storms have given the soil the drenching it needed and the gardens are lush and green.
Attila, "The Teenager", "The Eldest Daughter", and "The Fiancé" took me out for dinner last night. It was quite a surprise. I was very hungry, Attila and I were discussing what we might prepare for dinner. "The Teenager" said she was going to visit a friend and left the house. Then Attila had a bright idea, he wanted to take me out to dinner. That should have been a clue, Attila seldom suggests such an extravagance. When we arrived at the restaurant, there were daughters and fiancé waiting for us.
We were all quite silly, ate too much, and had a very nice time.
At the end of the meal we all came back to the house and sat around chatting. "The Fiance" fell asleep on the floor and when he woke up we all decided to watch Saturday Night Live. I have not stayed up late enough to watch that program for over a decade. It worked out very well, as they did not leave until the program ended, after midnight. Therefore, technically, they managed to spend time with mother on Mother's Day.
We slept in this morning. I awakened in time to watch my favorite program, Coronation Street. I started watching this program when confined to bed while pregnant with "The Teenager". I am still watching it. Sometimes "The Teenager" watches it with me. Attila has even taken an interest if he happens to be awake while it is airing.
The rest of my day has been spent working on the design for this site. I think the journal segment is ready to be uploaded. I hope that if anyone has problems with it they will let me know.
