Mother's Day

Mother's Day: 

  • An early morning run while the rest of the house slept (I love running this time a day, and it hardly ever works out.  It was the perfect way to start Mother's Day.)
  • Breakfast at my favorite breakfast place, Chase's Daily.  
  • Rob and the kids surprised me with a plum tree decorated with all the things they love about Mama. 
  • We planted an apple tree for Kale, and buried his placenta beneath it (yes its been in the freezer for 17 months).
  • Handmade cards
  • The tulips bloomed and the birches leafed out
  • Our first harvest of the year--rhubarb
  • A Mother's day email from my own mother--I'm still trying to put into words my response to such a lovely message.  
  • Lots of digging in the garden
  • Soccer on the greening grass
Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!

If you still haven't sent a card to your favorite mother, check out blunt cards.  My personal favorite is "Cake Time".  I typically try to keep it PG around here, so you'll have to check that one out yourself--its a hoot.

  1. Sounds like a lovely day. Did you make rhubarb pie?


I love hearing from you!
