A Day Late and a Dollar Short

That seems to be the story of my life. I feel like I am always one step behind.
I am only a week behind on sharing the fruits of my children's gratitude on Mother's Day and saying a big

Thank You!

My offspring always ask me what they can get me for gifts and of course my mind goes

This year I said, "Just get me garden stuff."
Poor kids. How specific is that?
But they came through like champs.
First off was the elegant, completed Sunday dinner when we walked in the door from church (prime rib!)


The gifts were equally awesome and clever (because I have very clever children, you know!)

Handmade "brag book" inside a very fetching clutch purse, just waiting for adorable photos of my grandchildren! (hint-hint-the family professional photographer)

Dontcha just LOVE this green pot? It makes me happy to look at it. I confess, I had to return the little pots that were the original gift because they had no drainage holes in the bottom-but this was the suggestion of the alternative by the gift giver.....(now I just have to get a plant in it-that's me-remember, a day late and a dollar short)

An outdoor clock! How cool is that? I really love clocks and I think this one is going to hang on the fence by the pool so I can look at it every day.

And not to be outdone, of course, some garden gloves, apron and clogs from the coolest store ever....Tar-Jay! I LOVE this color. P.S. They aren't as clean and pretty as they look here now-they are being USED!

Thank you very much my loves!!!

What superb kids! If they do that even once a month, what a blessing. They are invited here if they do the same
