The Fog Is Lifting

I’m not sure what it was that had me feeling so generally yucky all of last week, but I feel like it’s finally over.  At least I’m hoping it is.  I’m thinking it might just be the weather.  It was so dreary and rainy all last week then Saturday and Sunday were so beautiful.  I think that could be the shot in the arm I needed. 

It’s dreary and damp looking outside again today, but I’m just not going to let it get to me!

We had a chance to do a little bit of celebrating for Mother’s Day on Sunday.  Our friend Jim from Washington, D.C. was visiting so Ele, Jim, Ralph and I headed out for breakfast when Ele got home from church. 

Ralph and Jim back-lit.  Not always the best way to take a photo, but we do what we can!

Ele and Me.  I like this photo.  Usually if one of us looks good in a photo, the other one is making a face or doesn’t look too good.  My eyes look a little bit possessed in this one but without makeup…a pretty good shot.  Thanks, Jim!

Oh, did I mention we were at the Gateway Diner?  I think I forgot!  This is what they call the Greek omelette.  Tomatoes, onions, spinach and feta cheese.  It was so good!  Sliced tomatoes on the side…the tomatoes are actually starting to taste like tomatoes now!  Delicious breakfast!

After breakfast, we strolled outside to a beautiful little area along one of the local creeks.  I took a few photos.

I love the shadows of the trees on the water.  We all decided it was so nice there, we should have brought some chairs and a book or sketch pad to sit and enjoy the early afternoon breezes.  Maybe next time.

I’ve got a few projects planned for today.  Better get myself up and moving.  I’m not going to let the drearies get me again!

Happy Monday!
