Oh Ye Poor Neglected Blog

I don't know what the deal is with me. I go through periods of blogging a lot and then nothing. It sure has been a whole lotta nothing lately. I may just forego pictures of recent (or not so recent, ahem, Easter) happenings, but they may appear soon. I will likely be just starting up again from the here and now.

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of seeing my brother and his darling wife for the first time in many moons. I am so grateful for that pleasure. They are a lot of fun to be around. My brother, of course, is always himself and he sure picked a sweetheart of a wife. She really just fits right in with our family's craziness. We made a quickie visit to CALM and just spent a bunch of time eating and playing games. The things we seem to do best, I think!

We also saw Star Trek, totally not disappointed in that one. It was awesome. So many Easter eggs for the fans yet enough broad appeal for those who claim not to even like the franchise.

I will be back. Soon.

A Motherly Day

This is my fourth mother's day and it has been about the same as any other. Simple family meal, no gifts or anything. I am really OK with that. I think it is wonderful to show gratitude for the mothers in your life, but I find the holiday becoming increasingly extravagant, just as any other minor holiday! Ah well, I prefer simplicity.

The highlight was Cecily getting up to sing with the primary at church today. Mostly she just looked around and then appeared to say "you" and "do" at the very last lines of "Mother, I Love You." It was awesome.

Happy Mothers' Day!
