Mother's Day

This was my Mother's Day gift:

Pretty, huh?  Funny thing is that I have a bag full of sea glass I collected and have no idea what to do with as I don't make jewelry.  I either need to learn or find someone in the know.

Today was nice.  Church, groceries, home to get things ready for dinner.  The Brit wanted to golf as the weather was great and I told him he was more than welcome to if he took the kids with him!  So he did, and I got a few more things done and then even grabbed a little catnap out on the deck on the swing that lies down into a bed.  It was wonderful; the sun, the birds, the QUIET!

But all good things must come to an end, so they all came home and my mother came over and we did steak and corn on the cob and sliced tomatoes for dinner.  A few of my favorite things. So all in all a good day.

A couple from church are taking the suspended child tomorrow for a few hours to help them with some garage cleaning or something, which is good as Mondays are my busiest day and I can get things done.  The Brit, I think, is taking him to work with him on Tuesday, so I do have a reprieve from constant kid.  I am just a mother who needs that.  Having one with me all day long, especially a 13 year old, wears on me.  I need time to think and to adjust to the work week.

Okay, I'm outta here as I'm dumping on sugar.  Damn jellybeans!  When will I learn?

  1. Happy mother's day to you!! The jewelry is so pretty! We had the exact same dinner over at my parents house, except twice-baked potatoes instead of tomatoes!
