Good morning, Everyone. Happy Mother’s Day to all those mommies, moms, ma-s, special aunties, grandmas, nonnys, and great-grands. Grab your cup.Let’s catch up.
If we were having coffee together, I would tell you that this Mother’s Day is bittersweet for my family. It is also my dad’s birthday. He would have been 88 years old. These first holidays and milestones without him suck. Mom didn’t want the mass company on Sunday, so my sisters, daughter, and I are taking her to the Peconic Herb Farm for a morning of strolling through gardens and probably over-purchasing greenery. We will also bring a light brunch. Here is our little menu:
*Hard boiled egg slices with avocado and tomatoes
*Roasted cauliflower chickpeas and onions and a carrier oil dressing
*Cheese and Fruit
*Prosecco and OJ
I suppose we will have to get use to new traditions and routines.
If we were having coffee together, I would report that the motorboat is still nameless and is almost ready for launch. Matt has been busy installing a ladder platform and working on the electronics and fuel tank issues. I polished the hull and did the general go-for-ing. Summer may come early.
If we were having coffee together, I would update my writing progress, I continue to participate in the Women’s In Publishing School learning the overwhelming world of branding, content strategies, and social media hoops. Keywords and analytics baffle me. I am meeting some talented writers and we are navigating together. Book 2 almost has a revised ending. Stay tuned for the cover reveal and (new) title.
I wish all the nurturing mamas out there a beautiful day filled with love, and, if all is clear and safe, big double arm bear hugs.
That’s about it. Great big thank you to Natalie the Explorer, the incredible host of Weekend Coffee Share.
Be kind. Be safe.
Have a fantastic week, Everyone. Make it great.
