With 3 sons, and 3 daughters-in-law, and 6 grandchildren...not one card or bouquet came by Sat. night.
OK, the sons usually give their wives the Mother's Day gifts...as if their kids couldn't do it themselves. Well, when they were little they couldn't.
And I do remember my sons occasionally making breakfast for me, back when they lived with me.
So I've learned what makes me happy for Mother's Day is getting new plants and flowers. I purchase them...a whole $30 worth, and repot them into the same old pots. Maybe that's why some of them always die during the summer. But I do add some new potting soil while pulling out the dead stuff from last year. I didn't have the nerve to do so when they were still alive but suffering in the fall.
Saturday I prepared the new plants. And I'm also doing a project with the defunct fish tank. I'm all finished cleaning it out, and plan to put some succulents in it, like a kind of terarian.
By the way, if I'm misspelling anything, it's because blogger has stopped doing any of the spell check things, either on posts or comments. So I no longer know what's spelled with the right number of double letters or not! Oh, I just noticed I could turn spell check back on. And it wanted to call Impatients inpatients. But I was glad it caught mispelling.
My Mother's Day dinner from Thai Basil...which I picked up Sat. night, and will enjoy for a few more meals. Spring roll with 2 dipping sauces...and veggies and rice in a curry that wasn't at all hot. The sauces were, and the rice paper (is that what it's called) was a bit thick on one side on the spring roll, so I peeled it off and ate just the wonderful raw veggies and rice noodles that were in it.
