my family is a blessing to me.
they had a special day planned for me from beginning to end.
i had a lovely peony from the garden picked and placed by my bed.
then breakfast was served to me in bed with everyone piling on to talk and open
gifts and cards.
as we talked, stories of earlier days are being told and we break into laughter.
my oldest daughter, rachel and oldest son, david and i
went to centennial park for the taca fair.(tennessee association of craft artists.)
my pottery teacher was selling her pottery and lots of
tennesse artists were at the fair.
we had a wonderful time walking around and checking everything out.
of the museum and had some kettle corn.
just a few pictures to embarrass the kids.
as we came home from the park, daddio and the kids at
well some were surfing on shovels...it's the latest thing in tn.
this is our third year in a row planting trees on mother's day.
i think it might become a tradition...i love it.
i now have two apple trees...one macintosh and one fuji.
also two pear trees. i am so excited to add fruit trees to the farm.
the gorgeous day and i mean gorgeous...perfect weather...was rounded out
by me getting to ride my newly fixed tractor and cut grass quietly by myself
with my ipod on, of course.
as i was surveying my work my darling hubby and kids were
putting steaks on the grill and making the best dinner.
also i received a wonderful photo book of an earlier visit
from my daughter, esther who doesn't live here... along
with a call from her on mother's day morning.
