Ladies Day Out

Took Mom up to Faddegon’s today to look around and enjoy the new plants for the season. Here it’s a little early to plant anything other than perennials. Memorial Day wasn’t holding anybody back though at the garden center. Wagons full of plants and bushes were everywhere.

Mom got a beautiful clematis and some butterfly plants and I came home with a pretty hanging basket and a pot of a deep red/black geranium that I just couldn’t resist. Must have been the color that did me in, there’s a similar color petunia in the basket.

Two good painting days and a fun day with Mom. Great days off.

Tea Tag FTW – in for the night

Mom and I are watching the weather, catching pokemon and came prepared to do some serious coloring

Merry Christmas! (she lives!)

I wasn’t even vertical enough on Christmas Eve or Day to post my traditional little image and wish you the best:

But there you go. I’m here now.

Mom and I seem to have reached a new level in our long-term relationship.

and today, SNOW!

Needed a break to recover from taking leave of Lothlorien…

The Future is Coming!

Yesterday I had a package from the NYTimes and it was this piece of cardboard and it turned out to be AMAZING! Thank you so much #NYTimes! (I was apparently one of 300000 ‘loyal subscribers’ – hey! that’s me! plopped my money down the day they went paywall and haven’t left them since!)

Yes, there were some people at work who had already explored this little cardboard wonder but it was seriously a moment for me, my pal Matt and who could have predicted – my mother!
