Busy, busy, life keeps me busy!
The dreaded Black Flies are out and they're hungry! This make being outside very uncomfortable... blah! Planting the garden will be challenging with them around.
DD2 have expressed interest to learn about plants... Since I couldn't afford the Herb Fairy I linked earlier, we'll use the Wildcraft game from the same people for a gentle intro to herbs and flowers.
Wildcraft has been on our wishlist for years, as much for me and my DD.
Currently making Z's bday cake. Chocolate chip with a chocolate/pb drizzle to be put on just before we eat it. MMMMmmmm. I cannot wait!
Did I mention that M got the job??? He starts Monday. Again, though, the only snag could be the background check. The job said they don't care, but the temp agency that did the hiring might. Cross fingers, mamas. It's $20 an hour!
vydalea, where in upstate NY are you? If I may ask? I used to live in Syracuse. Here is my old band from back in the day:
There are lots of songs on there! Live ones, even! I am the drummer. Was.
I tried to listen to the songs from your band, but my version of flash is too old. I'll have to get my significantly more computer literate partner to help.
I would do the first option, going on the 25th and coming home on the 26th. Blessings, Valerie.
Mother's Day: DS gave me a bunch of his "special" things, including the wooden "special box" of his!! And a wand that he made. I can't believe he gave me his special things. Being 11 and having no money, he couldn't go anywhere, so I could just see him in my mind's eye going "What can I give Mom??" Aww. And he picked roses from the yard for me, and is going to make me lunch
That's so sweet!
Wolfcat: I hope your DB gets the help he needs: it's so sad how little support returning soldiers receive. However, yay for your husband!
That is cute.
My kids and partner served me an EPIC breakfast in bed. Sweetest thing ever. I've had a great, relaxing day, which is great, because the rest of the week is going to be busy busy busy (but in an awesome kind of way full of music and midwives, lol).
