Happy Mother’s Day

Today was one of those homesick days, I wished very much to be in Arkansas with my family.  I spoke with my Mom early this morning and wished her a happy Mother’s Day.  She is the best of Mom’s—she taught me to take up for myself, that I was just as important as the next person.  She taught me manners, how to cook and how to sew.  She taught me that family, friends and community were important.  She taught me the value of hard work but she also taught us (unlike my Dad who thought work was play) how to play—she loves to travel and has instilled in me that love of “go”, too.  Happy Mother’s Day, Mom, I hope it was an enjoyable one!  My niece Niki and her husband Eric hosted the family gathering for lunch after church.

It rained during the night and melted a lot of our snow but left us with mud, mud and more mud.  Walking was slow this morning as we slogged thru the mud!

Nat came for lunch, steaks on the grill for the guys, some of Shirley and George’s salmon for me.  I fixed garlic mashed potatoes and veggies with ice cream for dessert.  Nat and Michael spent a long time after lunch talking about old times.

I finished turning back the pieces on the Mexican Star wall hanging and topstitching the edges, giving it a curved pieced look.  I am so happy with the way the little quilt has come together, now for quilting it! 

Michael worked on Steve’s truck all day and Emmi spent the day in and out of trouble.  I potted the flowers and herbs I bought in Billings a while back—put the pots on a rolling cart and sat the cart in front of the glass patio doors today.  While I was downstairs quilting this afternoon Miss Emmi decided to go digging in the dirt.  I think that brat better get locked in the quilting room with me from now on!

Carzy Mtns As the crow flies, these mountains are over 40 miles from our home.  Aren’t zoom lenses great??  And my point and shoot Canon PowerShot SX10IS only has a 20X zoom.


  1. I think we have all inherited the "go" gene from our mothers. We missed you at the gathering yesterday. You need to plan to attend one of them soon.

  2. WOW 20x zoom! Mine only has 3X. Maybe time for a new camera soon although unless it is broken I doubt that will come true. Maybe I should do what my daughter did, her MP3 player fell in the toilet and she had to buy a new one, but in that case it was accidental.
    Sounds like you had a good Mother's Day.
