Mother’s Day: Yesterday and Today

I had a great Mother’s Day. Sarah and I went to the local huge garden center and she bought window boxes, soil and plants for the boxes, 2 hanging plants plus hangers to hang them on that stick in the ground. Then we went to that store I don’t like that starts with W but is the only store around where we could possibly buy the things we were looking for. We got four Tiki Torches and a small tiered tiki torch to put on a table which I have to return because it was broken. Typical W stuff. You have to always end up returning something.

We came home and Sarah started to clean up the side of the house where I want my Oasis. She also planted all the plants in the window boxes. She had to do everything alone because her hubby caught some kind of stomach virus and was sick. The wasband was out birding and offered to come home and help but she told him to stay out and have fun. She even cleaned the gutters.

SARAH WORKING HARD!!

THE FRUIT OF HER LABOR- ONLY THERE IS ACTUALLY NO FRUIT IN THERE.

THE HANGING PLANTS

Today, we went to Lowe’s Home Improvement Center and bought a Chiminea and solar lights.

THIS IS THE CHIMINEA WE BOUGHT.

I already have a bird bath and a wooden swing to incorporate into all of this. I also want some kind of outdoor statuary. I saw a Dragon statue online. Don’t know if the kids will go for it.

HE’S ONLY 17 INCHES TALL AND $65.00

THIS IS KING ARTHUR AND HE IS 4 FEET TALL AND $90.00 (ON SALE). I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A THING FOR THE ARTHURIAN LEGEND. I HAVE READ EVERY BOOK ABOUT HIM THAT I KNOW OF. MY DAUGHTER IS AFRAID HE WOULD GET STOLEN. I’D TAKE MY CHANCES.

I will probably have to wait for my birthday for something like the above which is June 9th.

I don’t have after photos yet of my Oasis because it isn’t quite finished. The chiminea has to be put together. Sarah is good at stuff like that so I’m sure she will do it but she might have to wait for the weekend. That’s OK I’ll be patient.

She also took me to lunch today and I did good . I had grilled chicken topped with salsa on a bed of rice with vegetables and I only ate half of it. Last night after all the work was done we had a barbecue and made our favorite teriyaki turkey burgers. It was too cold to sit in my Oasis but soon we will have the chiminea. It’s unseasonably cold here for May.

Hope all the Mother’s had a great Mother’s day and everyone else had a great day too. I also want to thank my daughter for giving me such a wonderful two day Mother’s Day.

I can’t wait to see the chiropractor on Wednesday. My back hurts so much from watching Sarah work so hard. 🙂
