Very Quiet Mother’s Day

We spent mother’s day recouperating from a week of illness and my sister’s visit. The most shocking turn of event was Spencer sleeping in until 9 o’clock. I don’t think he has ever slept that late and despite a week of 6 am wake-ups due to my own cold, I was able to sleep in until 9 too! Awesome!

And then we flew a kite.

I was feeling a bit blue on mother’s day until I saw so many of you gardening online. It was too windy and cold to do much here yesterday. This is Southern California, anything under 65 requires hiding indoors under blankets. I think starting next year, I’m copying the mother’s day in theĀ gardenĀ tradition. And maybe that mimosa tradition.

    Cool kite! To be fair, it was 80 degrees in CT for Mother’s Day – which is very very unusual. I always plant that weekend because it’s the first time we don’t have a danger of frost.

    Ooh, that’s a pretty kite! I like the kite flying thing, that’s cool. We have 2 kites and we never take them out, we should do that. Also I rather enjoyed having my inlaws over for a lunch. It wasn’t as much work because I made my husband clean the house before they came (that’s how we get M’s day done here, I make lists and say “this is what I expect of you” otherwise nothing happens) and they all decided to weed my patio, which really needs it. :D

    I was jealous of all the Mother’s Day gardening, but now I am way more jealous of the 9am wake-up! woohoo!

    Definitely the mimosa tradition… that’s well earned…
