Then with his help brought this little girl into the world.
So obviously I’m spoiled everyday of my life but Luke and Maddy decided to go off the deep end and really spoil me for Mother’s Day this year. I got more of a long Mother’s Weekend. It is in fact good to be me.
My Mother’s Day celebration started on Wednesday night when Luke and Maddy took me to a local garden center to stock up on plants for the garden and the yard.
Thursday night, much to my surprise, Luke and Maddy sprung this little wonder on me. Happy running to me! Apparently Luke has been paying attention to all my whining.
It makes me want to hit the gym or go for a run just looking at it.
Friday night I was treated to a movie night in my pjs with Luke complete with foot rub.
Saturday was spent tilling and mixing soil, expanding garden beds and planting plants.
This is my power tiller. His name is Luke.
He has big muscles, which he showed off by removing his shirt later in the day.
Like I said I’m lucky.
This is my little garden elf, Maddy.
She simply HAD to wear a winter hat and mittens to work in the garden.
I didn’t ask why, she’s 2 1/2 and slightly independent.
Oh, and of course there was lots of obsessive searches for every worm currently in residence in our garden beds and a bit of digging in the sand.
Sunday I got to grocery shop with my little family, then Luke whipped up some simply delicious French Toast made with some awesome homemade Cranberry-Pecan Rye Bread (don’t worry I’ll share the details in this weeks bread challenge post). I spent the morning planting flowers, blogging and sipping coffee all at a lovely slow pace. Then Sunday evening was spent having dinner with friends and seeing Conan in Boulder.
To top it all off I even got to sleep in Monday morning. Now if only I could get Mother Nature to understand that she is really killing my Mother’s Day buzz with snow on May 11th. Wet, heavy late springtime snow is not making me or all my newly planted plants happy. My backyard looks like it’s covered in mini greenhouses made of chicken wire and huge sheets of plastic to keep the snow off my little herbs and veggies.
Luckily I live in Colorado so even though it snowed all over my Mother’s Day happiness, I know that snow will melt away faster than it came.
I hope every single one of you lovely mothers were treated like the queens you are this weekend. I certainly appreciate all of you and you’re not even my mom. Well, expect one of you, I love you mom!
