I had a fairly nice Mother’s Day weekend. Soldier Daughter came down and took me to eat at Cafe Moderne. It was wonderful as always. We watched a British film called Death at a Funeral — interesting film. I went to Pier 1 and got my lamps. Actually I got an incredible deal. The lamps I decided on were on sale and then the clerk told me that if they did not have any in the back, she would have to sell me the lamps for an additional 50% off. They had none, so I got 2 lamps for the price of one.
Sunday after lunch we went with my mother and aunt to Botanica, the city garden. So much is in bloom and it was a lovely afternoon. My mother gave me a drawing she did of Soldier Daughter and the fashionista from a photo.
The rest of the week was rather anti-climactic. Yesterday I went to the River Festival in the morning to hear my boss’s band — a couple of pics follow — then to get my hair done and then to a graduation party.
He is wearing the black shirt and playing the guitar. He also plays mandolin. They went to Nashville a few months ago and played at the Bluebird and they have a great time. The band is made up of an insurance guy who used to play bluegrass professionally, a federal judge and an environmental attorney. Interesting combo.
The iris are blooming!
