Wow. It's a whole new month!
Here, at last, are pics of the girl just before she went to the prom. The extra string by her neck is from her purse--I couldn't get her to hang out for pics very long because she was in quite a hurry to get out the door. I think I may have overdone it in the fussing department.
She had a wonderful time, and even danced with a boy.
I don't know who will look back on this night more fondly--the girl, or me.
The boy is visiting for Mother's Day. I sure miss having him home. I love having him here on Mom's day, and I feel totally pampered. He helped me a ton around the garden. The girl helped too, but not much. Rain and thunder drove her off and she never came back.
Peas are in, artichokes and cardoon (hardened off seedlings that are under a protective cover until things nice'n up) and the onion sets which couldn't wait any longer. I think the onion sets will be fine, since some onions that overwintered have plenty of green on them.
Cake, gardening, crystalline gifts, and a good talk with my mom this morning. Awesome day. It'll be hard to go back to work tomorrow after being spoiled rotten all day. I'm so proud of my kids, and spending time with them was a huge treat.
Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! I hope you had a good one.
