Thanks, Mom

Mother's Day pleasures....

Watching Phineas and Ferb with my girls...It makes me laugh every time...and they are never "snarky", sarcastic, or mean....








I haven't read more than a couple of pages here and there in over a month....Reading more than one book....again, I'm big on emphasizing humor these days, so it will be some classic, snort Coke out of my nose Stephanie Plum, and then a new (for me) cozy mystery series about a Mom who's a private detective (so appropriate, right?)








Indulgent, over-priced, coffee drinks will be involved....I'm stuck on iced Hazelnut with soy (and a shot of half-an-half once I've had a big drink and there's room in the cup). Yum.








And I will tell my Mom thank you today.  She's amazing. So is my dear, dear mother-in-law. All you "Mom's" out there, whether you have kiddos of the two or four-legged variety, or are the official "mom" to a dear child related by the heart, if not the blood, I hope you have a beautiful day.

I hope you had a wonderful day, Gillian. I played Scrabble with my mom and she beat me! I'm still protesting. ;)

Farah, your flowers post was simply beautiful!

Donnell, so glad you had fun with your Mom. :)

There's nothing like lingering over an indulgent, over-priced, coffee drink while doing some light reading. Sounds perfect. Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.

Gillian, Thanks for remembering all the mothers. I am so glad that you still have your Mom and sweet MIL. it is a blessing to still have them with you. Both of mine have been gone for a while. My sweet Mom died when she was 59 yrs old. Much too soon. I still miss her every day.
Thanks for going to the Azores with me. We still laugh about having to stop for the cows.
Hugs, Ginger
