was a snap...with a little help from my friends....
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day...
..Coffee! Always my beginning...otherwise NOTHING gets done!
..and my wonderful PH...
because when there is lawn to be mowed and the heat is rising in Southern California to 100 degree's...this man is up and out without coffee, newspaper, nothing....totally focused. WISH I could do that!
I wandered off to Lowes for flowers to fill the little old wagon..
...to freshen up the baskets..
..new baskets to hang from the front porch..snapped this one while I sipped my coffee and PH drug out the mower..
Then I painted our little window basket with a fresh coat of red paint, new liner and new flowers...
..and PH mowed..some more..
New roses to plant.. (puff puff!) (later!) There I go again putting off planting!
Two new RED extra lawn chairs for extra seating.
They look pink in the sunlight, but they are actually dark red..inexpensive and pretty.
(Oops! Mele's little skunk got left behind when Mele's zoomed to the other end of the yard!)
Yep..pretty but ran back and bought cushions! Hawaiian print? Oh well..
...and sweet PH mowed on...
(NOT voting for that friend of PH's. Friend or no friend! Would you believe stubborn husband would not take that sign away?! I hate signs for politicians in our yard!)
Things are shaping up...
..and that was only the beginning..all this in preparation for our Mother's Day weekend.
*painted the bistro table and chairs
*ran and bought four new chair pads.
*rearranged all the patio furniture
*finished weeding the flower bed
*cleaned out the refrigerator
*washed front room windows and back patio door windows.
*vacuumed the entire..house and...
never mind..you get the idea.
NO photo's of us snoozing the late afternoon away...
Perhaps next year..
just for starters!!
So..are you inspired? I mean for the housekeeper and gardner??
I am joining Marty @ A Stroll Thru Life for her Inspire Me Tuesday party!
A cloud hung over us this Mother's Day.
Thank you to all of you for all the love you have sent to my family and I.
Grieving is a process and we are going through it.
