Check out the gorgeous gift from the daughter. She bought the little bag from a fundraiser at school and sculpted the beautiful needle ends herself with Femo. The husband baked the Femo for her and epoxied them onto the needles. I couldn't have been more surprised or delighted. What a remarkable gift.

Happy Mother's Day To Me
I've had a nice Mother's Day. The weather turned out better than predicted. Thus, outdoor time was possible and that is what I really wanted to do with "my" day. Strolled around the new neighbourhood's garden centre (quite impressive) with the family and bought a few plants. I managed to get a couple of containers planted which made me feel like finally some progress is being made with the mess that is our outside. Our street is basically a parking lot. They love their cars here, so garages and paved fronts abound. We have a pad but no car. We have decided to keep it in the interest of the house value but I intend to rip up all the paving stones alongside and plant a perennial garden. I also want pots and containers everywhere possible. I will be the freak of the neighbourhood with unmanicured green space and no vehicle. I figure if the neighbours whisper about me for riding a bike and not hosing down my sidewalk, my job is done.
