Just a quick note before making breakfast.
Mother's Day is so different than it once was at my home. Several years ago we had a nursery nearby. Each Mother's Day they had an event where they gave away hot dogs, soda, and popcorn. Their plants were on sale and everyone came out. Mom, Keri, my kids, and I would load up and head out by 9-10am. Had to make sure the trunk was empty or someone would be holding flowers.
Yes, even I bought flowers at that time. The kids were little and loved riding in the wagons. Keri always picked something out for Mom and I got her a hanging basket most years. After circling the place at least twice and wearing ourselves out - we headed to eat. Then got in line to check out. This always took at least 30 minutes. Loading the car was an experience not soon to be forgotten. Children here, plants being held there, be careful not too fast, bounce, bounce, bounce (through the field they parked you) and then home.
Forgetting who got what and having to trade a half hour later. Either Keri bringing something to me or Courtney running something to Grandma. Normally, home by noon and planting flowers by 1.
But, they've closed. The kids have grown. And we have no destination. Most years now it is a series of visits. As for another nursery - none around that we 'have' to go to. And I no longer do flowers. lol
So, as soon as I get my butt moving - I'll (yes, me) make breakfast and call Mom over. We'll be having bacon and eggs with biscuits and fried potatoes. Love the potatoes but baking them, cutting, and then frying them are a pain.
Hope your Mother's Day is what you want it to be and with your kids preferably. Don't forget to take that nap today and stitch tonight while the family makes you dinner!
