Finger Foods fit for a Goddess...

Mom made a mad dash over to my house a moment ago.

"I can only stay ten minutes.  Can I have one of those chocolate iced cupcakes I bought you?"

I laughed heartily and got Mom a cupcake and a paper towel.

Every Monday night is a meeting of elderly ladies at Julia's house.  Mom is the youngest and could be the daughter of most of them.  They talk and gossip and eat finger foods.

"All they talk about is that Catholic church," Mom told me with a smirk.  "I really don't like going."

I, for one, am glad Mom has something to do every Monday night.  She will fuss and complain, and then enjoy her time there, joining in on the gossip.

I think anything that gets your Mom out of the house and out of bed for a few hours is a good thing. Glad she has something to do on Mondays.

What is she going to do with just one cupcake? LOL It's good for her to get out.

I'm glad your mom made a quick trip. Maggie must have been one happy pup. It's good that your mom gets out, even if she complains about it.

Are you watching the Olympics? I've got a newspaper next to me, my laptop on my lap, and am watching the synchronized men's diving. Talk about multi-tasking.

Have you been to a meeting lately? Like your mom, it's good to get out.

100 days till your 1 year mark. I'm so proud of you. Who would have thought, you know?

Hey! Glad to see you back to blogging. I love your mom. I wish I had a group of women to gossip with on Mondays. Ha!

Give Maggie a hug for me.

Take Care and enjoy yourself!!!
