Busy Week

It has been a busy week. My mother flew out to visit us for Memorial Day. The weather was awful--rainy and cold. She flew from El Paso to Houston with the plan to take a plane from there to Newark where we'd pick her up on Thursday evening. Her flight into Newark was canceled because of the weather here, and she was rerouted to San Francisco and from there to Newark! She arrived on Friday morning very tired. But, as she said, she'd seen three oceans in one day! 

That first weekend was cold and rainy and we even had fires in the fireplace on a couple of nights.

Then the weather improved and we were able to get out and about.

On Sunday we did a food tour of NOLITA in New York City. We barbequed on Memorial Day. We visited the 911 Memorial Site during the week. We took a few drives, cooked good food, hung out around the newly opened pool and generally had a great time. On her last day here we went to Warwick Valley Vineyards for a tasting and lunch.

All in all, a great visit.

She is now home having taken uneventful flights yesterday. And, I assume she is settling back into her normal routine.
