Mum? How are you?

I am fine! And you? Still at work?

Nope! I am visiting a park in Santee. It is very beautiful and calm and there are many birds singing and flying around.

I came to the park today because we had some rain yesterday. I like to come on the day after. Everything is a little bit greener.

How’s the weather there? We had a beautiful day here.

There is a cool breeze, but no rain today. As you know, we are having a severe drought in California.

    Mum, big plans for Mother’s Day?

    I’ll have a special breakfast with Denise at her home. Moira will take care of all the arrangements. I will stay for lunch as well.

    That sounds great, Mum! I will call you again tomorrow. 

    Fabio, can you send me some pictures of your afternoon in the park? I could see them on the computer tomorrow.

    Sure, Mum!

      I sure had a great time in the afternoon, Lena! Tomorrow is Mother’s Day in the U.S. and In Brazil, where my Mum lives. That’s why I have posted the conversation and the photos for her. Thanks much for your support and for your friendship! Take care and enjoy your Sunday! 🙂

    J’adore cette conversation téléphonique avec ta maman!
    Superbes photos dear Fabio.
    À Bordeaux, il va faire plus de 30° aujourd’hui. Je pars en photo avant les grandes chaleurs de cet après-midi…
    À très bientôt my friend

      Dear Soizic,
      Thanks so much for your kind comments! Stay cool and take care.

    This is so sweet and beautiful. You are a great son and so fortunate to still have your mother. Mine has been gone a few years now and I miss her! But I am so happy with my family in Colorado. and as you know grandchildren are awesome! I am going out to brunch for Mother’s Day with Heather and her boyfriend’s parents. It will be lovely. But first, I’m heading out for a seven mile run.

    Have a wonderful day and pamper your wife!

    I’m working on the test questions. The holidays take longer than I thought. I’m working hours and hours and have a long way to go!

    See you Wednesday. Best, Barbara

      Barbara, Thanks so much, my dear friend! I am so glad that you went with your friend for the 7-mile run this morning! I have to confess that that distance seems like infinite for me! Have a wonderful time with Heather, her boyfriend, and his parents! Happy Mother’s Day!!! Take care, my wonderful friend! 🙂 Fabio
      PS: Don’t worry about the exam. You will do extremely well! See you on Wednesday.

    What a wonderful post! Kudos, Fabio! I felt so cozy inside hearing your conversation with your mom while scrolling through the photos. And you managed to capture the bird!
