Mr. O gave me some lovely flowers and a very pretty card.
Mother's Day Menu:
Salad of greens/berries, sliced pears, candied pecans etc
Sides of relish/pickles, tomatoes, cheese stuffed celery
Tea and coffee
We had company for dinner today after church and as always it is nice to spend time with old friends. Mr. O helped with the morning preps and then did most of the dishes while I set things aright and put away food and tidied up afterwards. I may be one of the few people left who does not have a dishwasher. I had one for many years when our family was all home and busy and it was a real timesaver, but when we did the renos a few years back I decided that we didn't really need a dishwasher for just two people. We had our kitchen cabinets custom made and I had one cabinet made so that if I ever changed my mind, a dishwasher could be added, but it just never happened.
We are fed, and alone now; Mr. O is watching golf; there are enough leftovers for munching and supper tomorrow, and I plan to sew away the evening. Pretty good day I think.
The only thing really missing is not being able to call and wish my Mom a Happy Mother's Day. It is almost two years since she left us, and I still catch myself thinking of things I want to tell her. I wonder, does that ever go away? I miss you Mom.
Happy Mother's Day to all my friends who are Mom's.
Here a few smiles for all my friends who are quilters;
I am off to have fun, and maybe next post I will have something quilty to show you.
