If you're expecting a Great Mother's Day Adventure, you won't find one here. Yesterday wasn't that much different than any given Sunday. That's because around here, every Sunday is Mother's Day. As I explained in THIS post, The Duchess reigns supreme over the family table on a weekly basis.
Plus, the graduating seniors aren't home yet.
Plus, the newlywed niece had a wedding out of town.
Since geography is the only way to keep the Duchess away from an oven, we gathered at The Sister's farm instead. She had a beautiful table set with her Italian Countyside dishes and a bouquet of roses from her equally beautiful gardens.
Would you like to see some pictures?
Yeah. So would I.
Unfortunately my borrowed camera decided at that moment to take a Sunday snooze and recharge his batteries. I would have used the Sister's camera, but that would have required her to email pictures. Simple task for you, maybe, but the woman with the degree in Management Information Systems has yet to get the hang of emailing pictures.
Or so she says.
Apparently, she got all of her computer savvy way back in the last century, which makes her a floppy disc in a laptop world. In the years since she stepped away from the business world, she has basked in the glory of willful ignorance. You know how old people can be...
Have I mentioned lately that she's 50...
and I'm not?
And so, I find myself picture poor this morning.
Not to worry,though, that status is about to change. When I opened my Mother's Day gift, I found a little gift receipt. Apparently, my two conspirators, with a lot of help from Super Dad, had been unable to find the gift that they wanted in the stores. They did find it online, though, and they ordered it.
It will be here this week.
Want to guess what I'm getting?
I'll give you two hints.
and it's red.
So... what did you get for Mother's Day?
