Easy Like Sunday Morning

We are taking it easy today! Mom has been in Washington, D.C. since Wednesday and was supposed to get back home by 10:00 am yesterday. Unfortunately, her flight was cancelled three times before she finally got a flight into Charlotte and rented a car to get home. She got to Columbia at 6:00 pm (1 hour before the football game). She didn't get home until almost midnight last night, so she promised me that once she played the piano for church this morning that we would spend the rest of the day together. I think I will get started early!




Note from Mom: Unfortunately, the Columbia Airport was closed all day because of a crash of a Lear Jet. Unfortunately, four people were killed and the two other passengers were sent to a Burn Hospital in Georgia. Special thoughts and prayers go the families of this terrible accident.

A taking-it-easy day seems like a good idea.

That's very sad about the plane crash.

My mum and dad went out today so I've had an uninterrupted day of napping. It was very good.

That is very sad. We will purr for the burn victims and for all of the families.

We did not know your Mom played piano! We play piano, too, but we have not been classically trained. We also do not read sheet music very well.

That is horrid. The PM just saw that crash on our music station while she was watching "So You Think You Can Dance"~ Canada.

Very sad.

Enjoy your nap!
