It’s Mother’s Day, and I have had a fabulous weekend! Yesterday I spent the whole day with my best friend, and we met Susanna Kearsley, an amazing author that I only recently discovered. This morning I had a nice chat with my Mommy by phone since she lives 4 hours away. Then my hubby, the kids, and I went out for lunch, visited Mike’s mom for Mother’s Day, and then went to see the movie, Iron Man 3, which was fantastic :). Plus my boys gave me gift cards for Chapters (a book store), so I can get some new books (you can never have too many right?). Now Mike and I are relaxing and watching the Survivor finale on TV. What an amazing day with the ones I love!
However, there was one thing that put a damper on my Mother’s Day. We knew it was going to be quite cold and rainy this weekend, but I really didn’t expect to wake up to snow on May 12th!! Yes, I really did say the “S” word. I must say, Mother Nature is not my favourite mother today. I had put my hanging baskets in the garage in case there was frost and had covered my geranium baskets with towels, but we drove home from the movies today in blowing snow, and when we got home we ran around putting the geraniums in the shed and covering the few flowers that I had planted already.
Here are a few pictures of what we had to face today, including one of Mikey defying Mother Nature, if only for a split second LOL!
I hope that all of you mothers out there had a fabulous Mother’s Day full of love and laughter :).
