Poem for Monday and Mother's Day

The weather was spectacular for Mother's Day here, so after a morning of home stuff (fun things -- fixing charms on a bracelet, hanging artwork), we picked up my parents and went to the Bethesda Fine Arts Festival, where we saw lots of beautiful artwork and crafts and even ran into our cousins Jane and Emily. Then we drove to College Park, where we met up with Adam, skyped with Daniel, chatted on Messenger with Maddy, and went to Mamma Lucia for dinner (I had ravioli in vodka sauce).

I got great gifts, including the book of the National Gallery's Frederic Bazille and the Birth of Impressionism exhibit from Paul, a silver cat necklace (based on an Edward Gorey illustration for Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats) from my parents, and a card with a math joke from Adam, whom we dropped back at his apartment to finish the school year then took my parents home. When we got home ourselves, we watched this week's Madam Secretary and Elementary.
