Mother's Day weekend
Monday, May 14, 2018
DH had his first farmers market on Saturday and it was
a flurry and a hurry to pack up the car an hour earlier than
last year's schedule. But we got it done and he was off for
his morning of fun. Well, the weather could have been kinder.
Cool, damp, a few rain showers and a lack of customers.
But he only had eggs, noodles and asparagus. We still have
not been able to plant anything in the garden. We have had
over 2 inches of rain in the last week and no signs of drying
weather until maybe next week.
I stayed home to do laundry and made 3 batches of wide
noodles in the morning. I have continued to work on the
spare rooms upstairs, sifting and sorting those items left
behind by the 5 children. I text them pictures and each has
been kind enough to reply-"Just get rid of that, Mom". At least
I am not hearing "Why did you save that"? Because it wasn't
me doing the saving. I have a hard enough time with my own
I was a little sad on Saturday as our second son sold his 1973
Camaro-the first car he ever bought himself. He felt he just didn't
drive it enough and wanted someone else to enjoy it. Just one week
shy of owning it for 10 years. And yes, I cried for the loss of his
dream because he had said he would never sell it. Never say never.
He has made his peace with his decision and I must too. But it is
hard to see your children part with their dreams.
Sunday was a lovely day of church, coffee hour with DD and the GC,
home to pack up an angel food cake and fresh strawberries to take
to MIL's house. We had the buffet at the newly reopened steakhouse.
A little pricey but very good food. We visited until midafternoon and
then home to do chores, trim DS's yard and make plans for the evening.
And today, back at work, back to studying and normal Monday mayhem.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by.
