It was such a beautiful weekend . Saturday we were in the70s and it was just a simple day enjoyed the outdoors spending time on the deck and chatting with my hubby while he did things around the yard. Then after he finished we went for a ride and treated ourselves to coffee. Went on the back country roads and just took in the leisurely day. After we arrived home to throw some pizzas in the oven for supper and relaxed on the couch watching tv. On Sunday woke to a cold rainy Mother’s Day. I dragged myself into the shower just as I heard my daughter shutting the door to head out for work . She had a long day at the floral shop . A bit later I got a text from her saying Happy Mother’s Day sorry she missed me but loved me and would see me later. I smiled as I headed out to the kitchen for coffee . My hubby told me she left me a card and she wanted me to open it. .. so I did very sweet and a Amazon gift card was also with it. I was telling her how I wanted to order some books there so this was perfect. My son woke and came out with a sappy face and said Happy Mother’s Day and said he still needed to grab me something he had worked late the night before and didn’t get a chance. I told him it was fine he then said go get ready I’ll take you out for breakfast . My hubby loved the idea and said yes let him do this . So the three of us finished getting ready and headed out . We went to a local orchard that has the cutest little restaurant . It was so nice and comfortable laid back. I do not like stuffy restaurants . I like to be comfortable and I love comfy food not fancy. So absolutely perfect I ordered blueberry pancakes and corn beef hash , my son said only order one pancake it’s huge it covers the whole plate it’s so filling . Well he was right oh my I couldn’t finish it. And a plateful of hash and endless refills of coffee. So there we sat stuffing our faces (hahaha) and chatting and laughing. It was nice do not do this often with my son. After we took a ride as he drove . Then once home my son left for a run with a friend … how he did that after eating I do not know🙂My hubby and I headed over to his moms to give her the plant we got her and sat and enjoyed coffee with her for awhile . Once home still full from breakfast we ate light my son came home from running and settled in as my hubby and I did . My daughter came home with a big hug for me and said she hoped I enjoyed my day . Then we all relaxed . A very simple content day . Oh and my hubby also got me a plant as well my daughter helped him pick it out . I hope all you moms out there enjoyed your day!
The weekend started of with Senior Prom .getting ready ..picking up flowers taking photos and then off my son went and my husband and I enjoyed supper in town. Then it was come home see all the photos being posted throughout the evening on Facebook and waiting for my friend to say my son had arrived with their son at their house with all their friends after the prom for a bonfire enjoying roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over the fire then it felt ok to get some sleep .. morning came in a bit of a fog after a restless night keeping the phone on beside table with the volume up In case my son texted or called us ….bad idea it was going off all night with notifications from fb .Once again dragging myself out of bed to the shower then the coffee. My son arrived home moments after I was enjoying my coffee saying he was tired and getting some more sleep in.
Saturday was spent with family time on my side .. doesn’t happened often my siblings are all older then me except for my brother but he was not there so I was the little sister and yes I always feel awkward be cause their much older then I and I will never feel old enough when I’m around them but at the same time I act older because let’s just say they are a wild bunch and love to drink and have a good time . I love a good time but I’m not a drinker . My son found it a bit amusing but knows now why I do not drink .. my family is my family and I love them but it gets a bit exhausting hahaha, so that was a long day 2to 8 but it went by quick yes I did laugh a lot and talked a lot so I did have a good time as well as my hubby did ,my son got to experience the mom side . That my daughter has already , sadly she couldn’t come with us busy working the holiday weekend in floral not only was it prom but some college graduations and yes Mother’s Day … so she was very busy and happy that it’s Sunday night and she is off her feet but so exhausted.
Mother’s Day I received a big hanging plant for my back deck from my kids. Then two smaller ones for the front of the house to hang off the deck from my hubby. Next week we chose to all go out with my Mother in-law when the restaurants are less busy . So we brought her over a hanging plant and visited then went and did food shopping … so needed to be done. Now it’s night time and we made it through this busy weekend . It’s a cool Spring night good for sleeping.everyones settled in bed. Back to a routine tomorrow. Work school , errands to run then championships for my sons track and field on Friday .late start that will be under the Lights . Another last thing to add to a memory of his high school yrs. .. trying to take all this one step at a time. So it’s not over whelming but easier said then done. But still trying. Now it’s time to get some sleep myself .. good night everyone🙂
I must say I’m amazed how good these are still blooming . This was my Mothers Day Flowers’s so let’s see they have been hanging out here since May . So beautiful and full had to post.
Just a shout out to all the Moms out there , doing a job that is 24 seven and no sick days . I must say being a mom is one of the hardest but most rewarding jobs I have ever done …actually I do not want to call it a job. Being a mom is a choice you make and I am happy I made that choice I love every minute of it do not get me wrong I have wanted to pull my hair out on many occasions and I have had sad days as well but for the most part many and still going special moments, I love being a mom and I hope you do too. so short post but needed to be said. Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms.
