We have been graced with the company of a few guests here at Casa Hug; Jay and Toni, Mi Corazon’s brother and family, Frank and MaryAnne, Bob and our most recent guest, Augie’s Mama arrived on May 4th for a week. The next day we took a ride to Fredericksburg and had lunch at Auslander, a German restaurant. We also made a stop at one of my favorite shops, the Herb Farm. Friday we had a pedi/mani and hair day. Saturday was a nice day spent in Boerne at the outdoor quilt show and the Handmade Fair. Although it was difficult for Lynn to walk, she just kept going.
Sunday was Mother’s Day, and as we typically do we went to church service at 1910 Church and then celebrated a lovely brunch at Valeris’s with Chef Keith.
Mother’s Day is difficult for me since I am flooded with memories of my Mama.
On Monday our tentative plans were to have lunch in San Antonio, preferably at a Mexican restaurant with easy access, and be flexible. Augie and I had researched the Riverwalk, since Lynn had never visited it, we thought that would be a great place to take her. Our immediate reaction was it would be too difficult for her to get around, since she requires a cane for walking. But, we had also made every effort to research the best paths available for the handicapped to maneuver. We learned that the Hyatt had the best handicap access. So we pulled into the Hyatt. Took the elevator up to the Riverwalk, and walked a bit. She insisted on taking the boat tour of the river. I wasn’t sure. It was difficult for her, but she made it. It was a lovely boat ride, we were also blessed with great weather. After we had lunch on the Riverwalk, and then headed home. Tuesday was a relaxing day at home, with the exception of Lynn wanting to run a few last minute errands in town. And, today is Wednesday, this morning was pretty fast and furious. I made a quick breakfast. I also worked on getting everything packed and organized for Lynn to assure she didn’t forget anything. At the same time, helping Mi Corazon to leave for two weeks. I was running around getting ready myself to get to a tea in town. Mi Corazon dropped off his Mom at the airport in San Antonio and kept on driving to Midland, Tx., to return to work. He arrived late; about 8:30, I know he was tired, just in time to go to sleep.
As I finish writing this, Lynn should be arriving in Sacramento.
Thank you, Father.
