We plant to go to the garden center, rain or shine! I am going to buy geraniums for the deck, a butterfly bush, and potting soil. We may have a movie night - dinner and a DVD at home. Happy Mother's Day, Marilyn!
awww that sounds like a great way to celebrate...i have some flower seeds that i want to plant but i know once they start blooming.. 1 of 2 things will happen the first being my son will mow over them and the second cats in the neighborhood digging them up...that's why i go to all my neighbors for flower pics..lol
btw have you started watching Star Trek Enterprise yet?
Happy Mother's Day my dear friend, i hope you do get spoiled rotten!!! sssss
Working in the garden is always fun. I have a few annual seeds to plant. The squirrels keep digging new starts up, though, and if they don't get them the bunnies will nibble. I had a neighbor once who, in her younger days, had been quite the gardener. She said the secret to her success was survival of the fittest. I find the older I get, the more I follow her sage advice.
We finished watching Voyager, and then it was Mike's turn to choose what we watch at lunch. He chose Rug Rats. The stories are cute, but I do not like the way they are drawn. So, no, we haven't started Star Trek Enterprise yet.
Last weekend, my daughter Krista was up and she took me out to dinner..it was great..just her coming up was a gift to me because i hardly see her..and tomorrow, i already told my hubby and son to just give me cash and let me spend it at my fave store...THE DOLLAR STORE!!!
Much love and hugs from one mom to all other moms out there!!! I hope you all have a great day!!!!!!!
so much Marilyn for your beautiful wishes. We are going to my son's house for dinner tonight for an early Mother's day Celebration. We never celebrate on the actual days with our married son because it becomes hard to take care of 2 mother in laws, extended families and a wife on the same day. Also the kids like to do special things for their mom and rushing around to go from this house to that one etc...made it hard for them to do those special things. The same for fathers day. We have parent's day for each side at different times and that is really better. My husband always celebrate with me on that day and spoils me all day long. We will probably spend a nice quiet intimate dinner on the patio that he will cook for me and enjoy a nice bottle of wine, and a nice dessert he will make for me.,candle light, (we have several large post type candles we like to put on the table and turn off the outside lights to create a nice atmosphere). He will not let me help with anything so he sets the table and cleans up everything. All I have to do is be there. We have a flat screen TV out there and can watch a movie as well or a music concert. Earlier in the day he usually takes me for a nice drive to get away and also will take me out to dinner on a different night to avoid the crowds, over priced meals , long waits to be seated etc...at the restaurants. I really prefer that beside I get 2 special meals that way. We do not buy each other expensive gifts either, but he does get me a gorgeous card, candy and little things to open each year. He is very romantic. I like you love the dollar stores and most of all going to thrift stores and finding those wonderful treasures while helping out charities.
so much Marilyn. We have been married 48 years and worked together for 30 of those years before retiring, so we really have never been apart we are like two peas in a pod. He is my lover, my best friend, my confident, my everything in life. We both love restoring classic cars, bicycling and taking little drives along the Coast to relax. So it is nice because we both have same hobbies to share and that makes it even better. He does make special meals for me for those times we celebrate together and spoils me to the max and I am so very grateful to have him in my life right next to me always. We truly love each other and that is the most important. I know you have a similar relationship with your hubby as you have been married quite some time as well. Happy Mother's day my dear friend, much love and hugs to you as well ssssssss
