Since my children don't live nearby and it's just my husband and I -- we visited his parents yesterday--I vowed to do just the things I love today. We went for breakfast at one of my favorite spots, The Nectar and afterwards, despite the damp cold temps--it was 6C when we arrived home-- we donned our yard clothes and went outside. Gord vacuumed the car in preparation for our trip to Moncton tomorrow and I hoed some of my back garden and laid a bag of mulch.
I discovered this little patch of lichen growing near the fence.
After a little snack, I wanted to come into my sewing room long enough to get the scrappy strips onto the tulips and I did.
I'm having a cup of tea, going to try calling my own mother, and then maybe have a soak or watch a movie. We purchased a couple of lobsters yesterday for our dinner.
Despite my on going health puzzles, I'm trying to enjoy the day. One samll hitch is that I discovered a message this morning that my doctor's appointment that I was really counting on for tomorrow has been postponed for 3 weeks. More waiting. We're going anyway as we both need the little getaway.
I'm wishing all you mothers out there a happy day.
