Happy Easter all!

Slept late after staying up so late last night. Then went with Oldest Brother to Middle Brother's group home and picked him up. We ate at Applebee's and then went to Sunken Meadow State Park and sat there for awhile to watch the waves, and then took a little walk on the boardwalk. Lovely day.

Back to work tomorrow. Feh.

A pretty neutral day

Not much went on. The only thing was that I heard from Andrea L, her mother died. Which, since I do not know Andrea all that well, and her mother not at all, only affects me to the extent that it brings up the memories of my mother's death. But it has made me a bit melancholy tonight.

Stopped for frozen yogurt on the way home. That was nice.

Gratitude List:

1. Friends.

2. Frozen yogurt.

3. Birds.

4. Nice weather.

5. Quiet day.

Celebrating Oldest Brother's birthday

Got up and had breakfast and puttered around for awhile. The Kid and SIL picked me up and we drove out to Bellmore to Applebee's where we met Oldest Brother. Then we were joined by John and Brianne and Aunt Helen. Denise has pinkeye so she couldn't come. We had a lovely lunch. The big surprise was that apparently all the cousins got together and agreed to pay for Oldest Brother to go upstate for a vacation. Lovely of them! So we'll see how that plays out this summer.

Then after they drove me home again, and stayed for a bit, and we took a nice walk.

And then I watched the episode of Cosmos I missed last week on-line, and watched the new episode on TV and now I'm going to bed to read.

Gratitude List:

1. Family.

2. The Kid.

3. Oldest Brother.

4. Beautiful spring flowers.

5. Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

Pretty OK day

Work was OK, nothing too good or too bad. After work had a bit of an adventure with the 50 bus. It had a mechanical problem and we ended up stopped on the Whitestone bridge. But we got going again and made it to Flushing where I had bubble tea and did a little shopping.

And that's about all.
