May 2013 in Pecan Park
This lovely little park not far from home, got some use last Mother's Day. Don and I brought breakfast and coffee and the Sunday New York Times. It was not my most perfect Mother's Day.
My kids weren't in town and this was the first celebration of the holiday after my mom's passing. But I have spent many a Mother's Day picnicking with my mom, so this was such a peaceful, happy way to enjoy the day and remember her. I'm afraid I didn't even attempt the New York Times crossword puzzle, though. Mom wouldn't have left without completing it!
Mom's Picnic List
In honor of my mother on the first Mother's Day since she has passed, I dedicate a new list... Mom's Picnic List!
Mom loved picnics and she raised her kids to appreciate the simple pleasures of food, family and friends in the great out of doors.
I will spend a year reflecting on as many past picnics as I can remember. But, I'll also
appreciate the here and now by creating new picnic experiences. My goal is to share at least 60 picnic memories, since that's how many years Mom was a mom!
Let the picnics begin!
