Sunday was a great day ~ the sun was shining and all of our kids called or came by ~ what more could a mother ask for!!  Son Teddy and grandson Luke stopped by with this great planter and a long-handled shovel ~ that is a great thing ~ Teddy said I wouldn't have to bend over so far!! He and his family were going to a movie and then invited us to join them for a late lunch afterwards ~ we went to a local restaurant that was serving the mothers for FREE!!!  That was fun and Tad even went along so that was a great present for me! Any of my friends who know Tad, know that he is kind of home body ~ we were all glad to have him share in our day!

On our way home from lunch, Sonny's daughter called and asked us to meet her and her friend at another local restaurant (and I wonder why I look like I do!) and she gave me this really big fuschia that will be great here on our shady property!  Another bonus was that my niece, Cheri, was there along with her two daughters from Cleveland! We sat together and had fun with them!

Brian and Cheryl gave me this cute martini glass with the recipe printed on the bottom for a "Little Black Dress" martini!!  How cute!  And Cheryl texted me first thing that morning with a mother's day greeting and to tell me how special I was to her.  That was very sweet.  Sonny's other son, Chris and family, stopped by with a card but Mama was out having fun and I missed them!
My son, Chris, called on Mother's Day from his son's football conditioning and then yesterday these beautiful flowers arrived along with candy!  I love fresh flowers ~ I love getting them and sending for people to enjoy now! So it was a great day for this mother ~ I appreciate all our kids ~ some blended families don't always work as well as ours ~ it's a wonderful thing!

Saturday, we are vendors at the Western Reserve guild's hook-in ~ I'm looking forward to that!  I am going to put some wool in the dye pots to add to my stock and re-pack everything from my last show!  I think I'm going to have a couple of grandchildren for a couple of days and since we have 6 grandkids playing Little League, we have a ball schedule you wouldn't believe!  We'll get to as many as we can ~ last night, Luke's team played Cam's team and Cam's team won ~ grandpa and me sat on one side for half and then moved to the other side for half ~ cheering for both teams all the while!!!!!  It's a rainy, really gloomy day here in Ohio ~ since I have so much to do inside, no chance of being tempted to work in the gardens!!  Have a good day everybody and thanks for stopping by!

Your Mother's Day sounds wonderful. You were spoiled. Well deserved, I'm sure. And that martini glass is HOT!!

Alice ~
I'm glad your Mother's Day was wonderful. You deserve it!
I'm looking forward to seeing you again on Saturday. I've barely picked up the hook since the last hook-in. Darn!
Pug hugs :)

Thanks everybody for your kind words! I'm not a wonderful mother by any means ~ you try to do the best job you can ~ but a lot of it is up to the kids to use the tools we give them and go out into this world and be the best that they can be! Sonny and I are very grateful that they're all good people and they knew how to make Mother's Day one to remember!!!
