Mother's Day...

On Saturday son1 came over after work to borrow a bit of money... So he wanted to do some chores to say Thank You... I had quite a few ideas in mind but none that could be done so late in the day so I told him to do son2's list of chores... So he mowed and edged the front and back yard... He cleaned up all the weeds on the side yard by the garage where we keep the garbage totes... He re-emptied all the garbage and recyclables, son2 had done them earlier in the day and he took in all the cans and bottles to be recycled... He even stayed for dinner and we watched Knights Tale with Heath Ledger...

Son2 was laughing at his cowboy hat so me and son2 were spying on him out the front window and taking his picture... here is where I think he spotted us, lol... He came in and asked if we were taking his picture... no, we were taking a picture of Jose our gardener, lol...

videoSon3 went out and rode his bike for I think only the second time in his life while son1 was edging the yard...
Son2 not to be outdone mowed the backyard...
Then son1 came over again on Mother's Day, I got home from work at 2:30pm... He brought his new dog Abey... It was only her second time being out since getting all her shots... Also her first time being left at a strange place... when son1 went with hubby and son2 to get Carl's Jr she cried the whole time they were gone...
I gave her some doggie treats and she was ok for a minute....

I had a nice Mother's Day weekend... Son1 brought over Grumpier Old Men and we watched it with our Carl's Jr... All my special treats I got... Turtle stepping stone, mushroom plant stakes, cat windchime and season 1 and 2 of Buffy the Vampire Slayer...
Today was Teacher Appreciation Day... the school supplies the teachers all with vases and the students bring in flowers to fill them... When I picked up son3 today, his teacher was whispering to him to tell me Thank You and as we were walking to the car son1 said the teacher liked his best cause it had seven flowers in one...
This morning I made reservations to go to Monterey next month, this time with our room facing the ocean and beach... Can't wait... Last day of school is June 11th... still have to work on son3's projects... then June 12th is my bday... and June 15th it's off to the beach....
Now I'm off to watch Ghost Whisperer and make a chocolate cake...
Happy Journaling...

Glad you had a good Mother's Day. Having all your boys together is always great. I had all mine together last summer and now it will probably be another 5 years before they do it again. June is going to be exciting! Going to the beach will be so nice! It's my favorite place for sure.
