What a lovely day! All of my children (and grandchildren and great grandchild) spent the day with me. The boys, John and Scott, bought the groceries, and John did all of the cooking. We had barbecued ribs, cheeseburgers and hotdogs. I picked spinach and lettuce from the garden for a big green salad, Amy brought potato salad, macaroni salad and a fruit platter. There was beer with my home canned tomato juice, wine and soft drinks, and milk for the little ones.
Thank you for a wonderful Mother's Day, Amy, Bryan, Alicia, Alicyn, Scott, Kris, Kevin, John, Carol, Shannon, Shayna, Sierra, Ethan, Remington, Eric, Brad & Kaylee!
What a sweet, heartfelt note, and a lovely hummingbird hanging. It must have been so nice to have your whole family around you! Happy Mother's Day, Granny!ReplyDelete

Happy mother's day...ReplyDelete
What a wonderful Mother's Day. All my mothers live across the country (one in Colorado - Mom, and one in Kansas - my MIL). I always send them gifts. My mom got freshly picked organic vegetables overnighted to her. Not mine though - from California. My mom loves that gift and asked me to send it to her every year. She is a practical person just like me. My MIL has always gotten flowers or plants in the past, but I just couldn't do it this year. I was looking at the crappy inartistic flower balls that they all have online. So I got her some of the best coffee in the world. Hawaiian coffee. My kids are also out of state so we played online games together and were hooked up to voice chat all afternoon long. Mine was good but it would be great fun to have a Mother's Day like yours where everyone can get together.ReplyDelete
How sweet!!! Its so nice to hear.ReplyDelete
What a Wonderful Mother's Day for a very special and wonderful person!ReplyDelete
Happy Mother's Day Granny!
i think you must be a clever woman, with all your schemes, and a kind woman, to share them on your blog. i am not surprised you are so appreciated. your idea of the tomatoes in bottomless buckets will be employed in my garden, thanks to you.ReplyDelete
The day was really a blessed one for you...my family is so far spread over the Country that's a hard feat for me to get.Everything sounds wonderful.ReplyDelete
Glad you had a special day!!ReplyDelete
Sue, believe me, that was a first! But it won't be the last, now that I know how well they can do it.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Ribbit and Bangchik & Kakdah.
Daphne, it sounds like you at least have a nice long distance day with your family.
Thank you, Sarada and Robin.
Thank you, Donna. You be sure to anchor those buckets securely to something, so they don't topple under the weight of the mature plants!
Ginny, yes it was. I'm lucky all of my children live nearby.
Thank you, Kelly.
It sounds like you had a lovely day, and I am certain you deserved all the attention.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a lovely day! I just love (!) the hummingbird mobile - I collect hummingbird items. Any ide where I could get one of those?ReplyDelete
Zentmrs, is't it pretty? I'll try to remember to ask where they bought it and let you know.ReplyDelete
Zentmers, I found the tag for it, and it was made by Sunset Vista Designs Co., Inc. of Rancho Cucamonga, CAReplyDelete

It's called a hummingbird bouncy. I found a set of three here, but it looks like they are only sold in quantity to dealers.
I'd try that toll free number to see if they're sold near you.
