A Day in May

This morning we closed out Mother's accounts and split up the funds - sent cashier's checks to Jim. It was kind of a bittersweet transaction.

We had lunch at Bubba's - it was excellent. I love that place.

The cherry blossoms are adrift out on the peninsula. It was the perfect day to go for a drive. It was so scenic - try to visualize bright blue sky, white, white blossoms, fields of bright yellow dandelions under the trees in the orchards - what a gorgeous sight.

We even stopped at Bardon's for a Wonder Freeze on the way home. It really has been a most excellent day.
