*strange mother's day...
This Mother's Day seems strange... it's my first Mother's Day without Mama.
Hubby asked me what I wanted to do for Mother's Day and I didn't have any problem answering, "Nothing". Didn't want to go out, didn't want flowers or chocolate, just wanted a quiet weekend where I could 'putter'. And that's pretty much what I've done. Yesterday we did our usual errands, cleaned up, put things away, played with the cats, and did some reading. And I actually fell asleep in the afternoon for a bit. It was nice.
This morning we slept late (till almost 7am). Now I'm drinking my coffee and catching up on my journal writing and reading. So far, so good. I may make some raspberry scones later... BTW, the homemade mayonnaise we made last week was really good, and simple to do. I like it because it's 'fresh' and you can make a small amount as needed.
The picture on top is one of me taken about a year ago - cropped out of a larger photo. There aren't many pics of me since I'm the official photographer in our family - and this is great by me - would much rather be the one behind the camera then in front.
This entry may be short, but must get on with my 'puttering'. Hope you all have a great day and thanks for reading.
(If anyone wonders about the space between the paragraphs, I'm having a little trouble with that... either they're non-existant or too large ???)

BTW, the picture at the top is an old one of a chicken pot pie that I made a while back. It was from Jan Karon's cookbook (you know, the Jan Karon who writes The Midford Series?). Anyway, it was very good... but took forever to make. It starts out with you making your own chicken broth and ends with you making your own pie crust topping. Took me all friggin day. Yes, it was very good... but not often do I have all day to cook. So I took a picture to remind me of it and haven't made it again since.
Well, the weekend is almost here again. And it's Mother's Day Weekend! So Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there! May you have a quiet safe relaxing weekend! And as always, thanks for reading.

Guess we did a lot last weekend in San Antonio and then came back and worked this week as usual... because today I'm exhausted. When the alarm went off this morning at 5 am, I thought, "Oh no... can't be time to get up for work already." But it was. This afternoon I would have napped, but we have a delivery person coming (you know, the 'sometime between noon and 6pm' thing)so there was no use. It's now almost 5pm and no one's showed up yet.
