Happy Mother’s Day!

8 May

After gardening for most of the day yesterday, I’m ready for a relaxing Mother’s Day with my kids.

Apparently, breakfast in bed was on the schedule for this morning, but I didn’t know that so I got up as usual. My hubby was busy at the stove with veggies piled everywhere and a carton of farm fresh eggs on the counter. He was busy whipping up breakfast for me — a fantastic omelet stuffed with spinach, mushrooms, onions and vegan cheese, a fresh fruit salad, and an English muffin. Delish! (The only thing missing was a Starbucks decaf soy caramel latte, which is on the schedule for later today, I guess.)

For Mother’s Day, Madison made two handmade cards and bought me three novels from the used book store (she must have been shopping with Nonna in NC!). Brady made me a really cute necklace with a seashell on it, which I will wear to church this morning, and Logan made a card with his very own knock, knock joke on it:

Knock, knock
Who’s there?
Lettuce.
Lettuce who?
Lettuce, tomatoes, onions and peas!

Speaking of lettuce, tomatoes, onions and peas, the gardens for this year are officially under way! Since we finally had a warm, sunny day, the boys and I turned all the dirt, added compost and then raked out the four garden boxes. We sprinkled in some organic fertilizer and got them ready for the vegetables to go in. I planted several lettuces, Swiss chard, rainbow chard and peas yesterday. We also re-edged all the flower beds, raked out the leaves and did some general backyard cleanup. The flower beds are ready for annuals and mulch. If Mother Nature ever quits teasing us with these on-again-off-again nice days, and spring actually arrives, we’ll be in good shape!

Today, though, is a day for family. The weather is supposed to be beautiful — sunny and 65 degrees. (Maybe we actually will see spring this year!) We’re heading out to my mother-in-law’s for dinner and visiting. To my mom, mother-in-law, grandma, sister, and all the moms out there — I hope you have a wonderfully relaxing day!

      Supposedly the Daiya cheeses melt nice. I just don’t care much for the flavor.
