This is my mom. Yeah, she’s pretty cool. We like a lot of the same things and enjoying hanging out. I get all my craftiness from her. She made all my clothes when I was a little ..drea. She is a super quilter and a master organizer. I. JUST. LOVE. HER.
So we read Water for Elephants a few months ago, together. Me with a traditional ole’ book and her on her Kindle. I think we finished within a few days of each other and had a half-hour conversation about it we were both done. Seriously, one of the best stories I have ever read.
She’s the only one I would have wanted to see the movie with. I liked that we both cried at the same parts. (and it was a lot…stupid sappy movies that I love.)
Starving, we stopped at SAMS for hot dogs and cherry coke…and the pics I sent for developing.
Oh and we saw a preview at the theater today for this movie and we excited to see it when it came out.
BUT THEN…we were browsing books at SAMS (because I am almost done with my current book) and you’ll never guess what we found…
SO yeah…I guess Silence of the Lamb will have to wait.
Home to see my hubby off for a poker night with the guys and we were ready to work. We spent a few hours cleaning up my backyard. We rent and the landscaping is very high maintenance so one little winter reeks major havoc on the yard. We took it from this:
It’s almost there. All the knee high weeds are gone and the flower and garden beds are ready for planting. The square is ready for pavers and the mow strip has been re-drawn.
After fabulous chicken enchiladas and a bath for Marshall, we ventured out into the garage to organize my scrap area. She knows exactly how to make me toss stuff and how to make the things I’m keeping…well…fit.
So yeah, my mom’s pretty rad.
