Happy Mother's Day

Sunday, May 12, 2013

It's starting out beautiful, the sun's shining, I'm not sure how cool it is out yet, as I've not been out there, I'm hoping it's as nice as it looks out..isn't it supposed to be for Mother's Day?

We're taking my Mom out to eat at Cracker Barrel, she'd wanted chinese food, at a place that we used to eat when I was a little kid, but it has such steep stairs, we'd have to eat a her house and I'd hate to have to have her eat at home for Mother's Day (maybe we'll do that another time, since she enjoys the food so much). We just wanted to get her out of the house and to a restaurant for Mother's Day, with our family, so that's what we've got planned.

So that's our plans for Mother's Day, I've been looking over the menu, not quite sure what I'll have, but I need to decide soon so I can get the calories and carbs down before I leave. I also have to get my exercises done yet, but I will.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day, whether you're a mother or not, you all deserve it. emoticon

    Cracker Barrel is a great place. I bet it will be crowded but worth it.

Had sunshine today, but that wind, if it weren't for that it'd been a beautiful day, that wind is so chilly though. It made 51 today. I can't wait til the middle of the week, supposed to hit 80's, that'll be nice, can get into the garden and start planting in ernest. We bought some tomato plants, both regular and cherry tomatos, grape tomatoes, too, love those things for snacking on, they're delicious. Normally I'll buy them to snack on here, and my daughter's boyfriend will be over, and he'll eat nearly the entire thing!! I try to tell him/them that it's the only thing I can have a lot of but it goes over his head, drives me insane! Oh well, what can you do.

Anyway, we're looking for a set of morel mushroom statues for my mom for mother's day but unable to find them, I found a single one, but we'd bought her and dad one set a few years ago that are deterioriating now, and they are no longer available, unfortunately.

I'm also trying to figure out where to take her for mother's day, and she won't tell us where she wants to go, that too is driving me nuts. Maybe Cracker Barrel, I don't know, we'll have to see. The one place she loves, is a big climb up a bunch of stairs, so it's only carry out, not really taking her there, like we want to do. So we'll see. I hope everyone have a great mother's day tomorrow. emoticon

    She just might like the take-out. I know I enjoy it when any of my kids bring takeout and we can spend time together where I am comfortable. But Cracker Barrel is a great choice too. You could probably even let her pick out a gift there as they have all kinds of things. Bill brought me a butterfly from there yesterday. Happy Mothers day

Not much.

Well, the cold hasn't gotten worse, but it's back to raining again. No sign of sunshine today, unfortunately, but what can you do. At least we didn't get the 1-2" like they predicted.

The pony hasn't had the baby yet, we're still anxiously waiting, she's 2 weeks overdue, so we're hoping soon.

I hope you all have a wonderful day.

    I get to join you with the rain. It has been raining all day here today. I am not complaining though because i get the day off. emoticon . I hope you don't run into big problems if your pony doesn't have a normal labor.

Thanks for the message on my page! You have a great day too! emoticon

    We would love to have some rain here,
If the pony doesn't come soon will you have to get a vet to induce labor.

I think I'm getting a cold, been sneezing and just have that "cold" type of feeling. Hard to describe it in any other way, but that's not going to stop me from doing my exercises.

We're expecting 1-2" of rain tomorrow, I certainly hope not, we don't need anymore rain, we're just starting to get drier ground and able to get into the fields from the last bunch of rain. I think last month we were way above normal, what's going on here!

Anyway, I hope you're all remembering to keep that smile in the morning and spreading it around! Have a wonderful Thursday! emoticon

    We got a nice heavy, much needed rain here yesterday....but it was a short one...moved on quickly.

Hope you feel better quickly! Take good care of you emoticon

    Just the cold feeling itself is no fun. Stay dry as getting wet won't help you feel better.
have a wonderful day

maybe next time....I can try again in 6 weeks. She said I had the highest speed, and the lowest amount of errors, but I missed what they want by 1 error, .1 point. Am so disappointed, but for the first time I didn't turn to food to quell that disappointment. I figure if I didn't get it, there was a reason and only God knows what that is, so either I have something better coming along or it would have interfered with what I have going on in my life. (3 weddings and 2 graduations out of town)

Anyway, today's a new day, and I plan on doing all I can in it. So far I've visited ponies, newborn kittens (I think I mentioned my daughter brought one back to life after it's heart stopped and it wasn't breathing, then put it with its mother and it is doing fine), taking her pony cart to get a "boot" put on the basket; all that's been accomplished, along with my exercises.

It's such a beautiful day out, a nice day for a pony to be born....keeping my fingers crossed. But it'll be born when it's born, right?

Have a beautiful day, everyone and remember to SMILE! emoticon (A rainbow for hope)
