Happy Mother's Day

We have had a very good weekend. Yesterday Kay and I took the Point Defiance Ferry to Vashon Island, visited a nursery that Kay has been wanting to see for years, called "Dig" and had lunch at Perry's Island Burgers. Dig is for sale, and inventory was scant, but it still was a nice visit. Fresh air, sunshine, warmth, and getting away from home. Took some photos waiting for the ferry on the way home. Immature Bald Eagle soaring, and Harlequin Ducks near the ferry terminal. All good.

Today we plan to lay low. I figure if I'm going to be responsible for more of the gardening, I want to have a few vegetables as well as flowers, so am planting a few tomato, cucumber, squash and pumpkin plants. We also got a "columnar apple" tree at Dig, it grows apples right off the trunk, no branches, so takes very little room. We'll see how that works.

Jean gets home this afternoon and we're going for Rock Pizza. This should be a good week, well past the last chemo, next is a week from tomorrow, just a couple of doctors visits.
Enjoy Mother's day.

Happy Mother's Day Kay!! It was great to see you Friday. You looked terrific and give the best hugs of anyone we know. I really enjoyed biking with Ed and Paul in the sunshine yesterday. Have a good week and rest well. Peter
