Hodgepodge Monday (My Best Shots)
Mother's day weekend was a whirlwind of activities and lately I am feeling like a short order cook in the kitchen of my life. Flipping, toasting, scrambling, plating it all up. So excuse me if I take a little time to organize my head and while I'm at it, the kitchen and my art table and my pile of papers.
Cowgirl greeted me in my yoga room very early on Mother's day, still sleepy but excited to remind me it was my "special day." She has been telling me for weeks about the special secret she had been working on in school. Not one to keep secrets, she did a good job of letting me know she was keeping this secret.
And here is my Mother's day surprise:
She made me a booklet with each page describing me. For example, for the prompt "My mother likes to" she wrote "make noodles." (Hmmm ... her favorite dish. Glad to know she believes I derive great enjoyment from boiling pasta!) She sweetly wrote "My mother is loving" and my favorite is "I love it when my mother does yoga with me."
It was a special celebration as we have my mother here now and my mother-in-law also joined us for a family dinner.
The Husband spent all weekend smoking a brisket - never mind I am a vegetarian, beef is his way of saying I love you - and a hanging tomato planter is in my future. Sounding like Green Acres over here!
Here's a few more things the weekend served up:
Yes, Moose rested comfortably all weekend, the Potato head family has extended their visit and the robins must be hatching because I saw 3 empty eggs on my morning walk.
That is my hodgepodge of a weekend. Do tell about yours! ❉
