We made our annual Mother’s Day pilgrimage to the garden center yesterday. It was windy!! As if that wasn’t evident by the state of my hair. Lots of yummy things coming home to our garden for sure!
It was actually a really long trip, with lots of errands to run in preparation for a thoroughly busy week. Over-whelming really, with every place being overly crowded on account of the holiday. My poor Wee Girl was on overload. She’s not used to such things. We lead a fairly quiet, simple home life, very well suited to the sensitivity and openness of a little babe. I’m not used to such things myself and I find I greatly prefer a world view where my own garden and our wonderful community are most prominent. I like our little library where everyone knows everyone’s name. I like the local co-ops and the family owned stores; small, personal, welcoming. It’s a good reminder to me to be very grateful for my husband who is willing to go out into the world on our behalf, to earn the money that lets us lead our quiet little life.
We are very blessed indeed.
And really now, how many women can say that they got the planets for Mother’s Day??
This is just a sampling of course, because I received 2 complete solar systems (I think that Jupiter’s 61 moons probably resulted in a few hand cramps).
