mother's day fun

i have to say, i love mother's day. it's like getting an extra birthday or being queen for a day. my day couldn't have been more lovely.

it started with me getting to STAY IN BED this morning and read! not for too long, but long enough to feel decadent. soon, little feet came up the stairs and presented me with the sweetest homemade cards. "i love you mommy. thank you for all the yummy dinners you make." made me melty! and for a gift---the cookbook i've been going on and on about. yay! now i don't have to bother the librarians for it again. it was really the perfect gift.

next i got to take a shower--a long one ta'boot! and off we all went to my favorite cafe and had some breakfast yums. blueberry pancakes for the kids. which i of course dipped into and i ooh'd and aaah'd over my tomato spinach feta omelette served with a bit of baguette, potatoes and small salad. so yummy. so fresh. local eggs, local greens, and the best part.....the coffee. the delicous delicious coffee. ah. i feel happy just thinking about it.

then it was back home to get in the garden. we dug, raked, hoe'd and mixed soil and compost. we decided to do our tomatoes in pots as well as the herbs we adore. and the garden, we decided to dedicate to a sunflower house.

my little sprouts were looking a little limp and hesitant, but i have high hopes that they will grow strong, indeed.

and here's hoping i can remember to water the tomatoes, pepper plant and herbs in their pots on the deck! i love having herbs right outside the kitchen door. it's the best! just dash out and snip!

so, that's how i spent my day. and you?

I did the exact same thing! Haven't posted about it yet, but I planted our carrots and did the flower bed. When Sandy asked what I wanted to do, that was what came to mind. I have to admit I enjoyed some of the part where he entertained the kids while I got to do a little gardening on my own, too:)
