Good morning! It's a super wet rainy day today, but inside I woke up at a glorious 7:37 a.m. to a wonderful sight! I know, you're saying, "But Sharon...the plate is empty!" This is the "after" picture. The before picture was a plate full of chocolate chip pancakes loaded with butter and maple syrup, scrambled eggs with melted cheese on top, and sausage patties...Y to the U to the M! Those flowers are absolutely gorgeous! It was so sweet of the troops to go out in the pouring rain to cut them from the I have no idea what kind of bush it is, but it has the most beautiful flowers when it blooms bush. Afterwards I was handed my book and knitting needles so I could lounge around in bed while they took care of outside chores. I chose the book since somewhere between the living room and bedroom a needle got lost, but it's the thought that counts.
After I did a bit of reading and headed downstairs I found the next picture in the kitchen...well, you know what I mean, not the picture but the actual flowers and cards on the table. All of the flowers are from the peony bushes that just started to bloom in our yard and that ever elusive I have no idea what kind of bush it is, but it has the most beautiful flowers when it blooms bush. The kitchen now smells wonderful - a mixture of chocolate chip pancakes and flowers.
I was given the news that I am being taken to the movies to celebrate Mother's Day. I was also told that I definitely want to see Marvel's The Avengers movie. I also know this is a ploy for them to see it, so I felt some harassment was in order. I reminded them it's Mother's Day and I want to see a chick-flick so we'll see The Lucky One, which made them cringe in horror. Then I told them if that didn't work we can see The Three Stooges. Of course, I had to throw in a couple of nyuk-nyuk-nyuk's, whoop-whoo-whoop-whoops, and a, "Oh, a wise guy, eh?". They weren't impressed. Truth be told, I do want to see The Avengers, but I'll keep that as our little secret until we get to the theatre and buy the tickets.
To all new mothers (my sister, Erin), uber experienced mothers (my mother, Arlene), and mothers in between (my sister, Karyn)...I wish you a wonderful day! To all the other mothers out there that have touched my life and to mothers I've never met, I wish you the same. Enjoy this special day, which is a glorious celebration of, well, us! From the famous quotes of Curly Howard today is a "Poifect" day! Smiling & Waving, Sharon
I'm the queen of our farm, although the animals haven't figured that out yet. My title is Head Chicken Wrangler, but most days I'm called Mom. Life is a comedy and I plan on documenting it.
