Some of you have mentioned the new header and the photo, and now you see I have replaced it. I think you can expect that to happen frequently, now that I know how to do it. The new pic was taken on the horse farm I talked about last week. I cannot imagine a more bucolic or serene place, and I wish I could go there every week to unwind from the cares of daily life. Surely it would be easy in such a place.
The flower shop was a hot bed of activity today; Mother's Day arrangements, corsages and boutonnnieres for a Father-Daughter Dance and for First Communion, and additional everyday stuff to do. The phone rang constantly and the wire-service fax machine worked overtime, as children and husbands sought to honor their mothers/wives. One man ordered flowers to be sent to his adult daughters, wishing them a happy Mother's Day. I thought that was a lovely gesture. Someone asked this week if my family members send me flowers. No, at my request they don't. It would be like carrying coals to Newcastle (as we say) and I would spend at least ten minutes critiquing the arrangement anyway.....LOL. I don't expect anything but a card for Mother's Day, but had they asked, I would be inclined to want a gift card to be used for spa services like facials and massages. If I were being very practical, I'd ask for $$$ to pay off my gasoline bill! Two of my children (and all the grandchildren) will be here on Sunday to visit, and they are bringing food, which is an idea I welcome after I worked so hard this week. Tomorrow will be spent doing nothing I don't want to do, and I hope I can spend some time in a hot tub and pool, just relaxing. I might even get the time to visit all of you!
