Happy Mother's Day

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Mom's day. I know a friend of mine lost her mother yesterday. It was expected but I'm sure she is still sad to not have her around today in the usual sense. HUGS and love to my former "TLC" upline and now, SY friend, LC.




Did you call your mom yet? I spoke to my mom this morning and will be bringing her lunch tomorrow. DH talked to his mom too. Here is the card I sent to my MIL. I can't show you my moms card of course cause she hasn't seen it yet!

I heard from my young'uns. DS got home about 2pm and we put him right to work on my Mother's Day gift, Washing my car! My DH gave him a very detailed lesson on the proper way to wash a car. I sat in the shade under a HUGE umbrella and was amazed at how much I didn't know about washing cars. I swear. I am a swipe & run person. Not DH. He patiently explained where you should wash first & why, how to do it correctly, how to rinse properly, explained the way the car is designed to run off water and how you use that when washing & rinsing. WOW. The boy learned alot and did a great job. Here are a couple of my favorite pics.







The funniest thing was when my DH took a drink from the water hose and DS almost had a heart attack! He said, you aren't supposed to drink from that!! DH explained that it is the same water that goes into the house and this is DS's first attempt at "being a kid"

I was going to fill you in on the rest of my weekend fun but my DD just arrived and I want to spend time with her.

Til later.................
