I had a splendid Mother’s Day: I hope you did too.
Saturday we went to my Mother-in-law’s where her sons planted flowers for her, but her daughter-in-law (that would be me) forgot to snap pictures of the finished work. MIL was showered with roses and candy as well. After Sunday church and lunch at her house, (don’t worry her granddaughter and I had brought most of the meal with us – so it was little work for anybody), we headed home.
Darling daughter let me win at Scrabble (by 50+ points, mind you). When dashing son and his dear girlfriend arrived we dawdled around the lake, and managed to keep Duke out of it, barely. Hubby told me I should let you all know that is a big ‘ole slab crappie, I caught. That is supposed to impress those in the know?
I too was showered with gifts – cards to my favorite places – Macy’s, TJMaxx, and because somebody is hopeful that I’ll get really savvy with my new phone – Google Play. And let’s not forget the dark rich chocolate candy and the orchid.
So that’s a new thing I will be learning, how to care for Phalaenopsis, or moth orchids, to the uninformed. I am quite looking forward to seeing if I can keep it alive through the summer, while hubby and I tackle our reading list. Here it is in visual form.
Are you sensing a theme there? The plan is to divide and conquer – I’ll start with the novels, hubby with the history.
That’s all from here this Memo Monday – why not share with Sian @FromHighInTheSky and friends what’s happening with you this Monday. I’ll be round to see later in the week, as today and tomorrow are booked. Toodles.
