Mother’s Day Weekend

Well that 3 day weekend flew by fast. I did not get to do everything I thought I would but the trade off was fun as some of the fun things I wanted to do were done, like the video I posted yesterday. Thanks to those who commented here on FB or messages regarding it. It made me feel really good. I realize I have a lot to learn though but find myself correcting others videos in my head, lol. Like – why didn’t they clip that part out? It’s not meant from a critical standpoint though, just a notion of “if it were mine I would have done it this way”. So my point being that now when I watch videos on YouTube I look at it from a different standpoint simply because I’m learning what you can do and what the options are. But so much to learn.

One thing I did do this weekend was to wash the new masks that came in. I prefer to iron them as well. I don’t dare put them in the dryer. Who knew going into 2020 some of us would be looking for fashion masks, lol.

We did get to do something VERY important this weekend. And that was to go see Mom. Maisy rode in the back seat where she was most comfortable and happy. Bless her heart I guess the gift bag tissue was in her face most of the way.

And Roger, a seemingly happy little fellow was miserable most of the way. He wants his Daddy but he is uncomfortable now as he is old and wants to be comfy. And just could not find his comfort spot in a lap. On the way back I chauffered George and both dogs as they rode in the back seat. Maisy eventually came up to the passenger seat as she really wanted her Momma.

We stopped at KFC to get chicken and look at this long line. Thank goodness it didn’t take too long. We were getting the chicken. There was no question. Mom never asks for anything and she asked for KFC and KFC it would be. We all enjoyed it too.

We tried to sit outside, but with a high of 68 or so and the wind blowing, Mom found it too cool. But we set in on binge watching Outer Banks on Netflix. I think we did 3 or 4 shows. Mom told us to pick a show and that is what I picked. Normally she likes the Hallmark Channel but I think she has about watched it out.

This photo kinda describes our day. lol. Very restful. A nice little afternoon with our bellies full of fried chicken, slaw, green beans, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese.

Here was my view. I love the poodle. I guess I didn’t get a pic of Fancy, Mom’s Dog this time. She is a cutie pie. She is 13 and gained a few pounds during the Pandemic. I hear she likes cheeseburgers like myself. lol

Mom’s back yard was pretty. Their area was hit hard with the storms too a week ago with many trees falling over, many with roots and all just pulled out of the ground. You could hear the sounds of chain saws and people were out hauling wood from here to there and yon. It was truly like a small hurricane came through on land. I’ve always liked Mom’s peaceful place there.

I shot a pic through the screen coming in from the outside. Oh if you look close you can see the back of Fancy under George’s foot. lol


I found another hat downstairs that I had used when we had a garden. So I brought it up and added it to the hat wall.

And that is about all she wrote for the weekend! Literally.

It’s a big week for us. Almost overwhelmingly so. While George is working from home we found it a good time for the plumber to come, the roofer to come, and of course Katy and Cody are coming as his brother is getting married.

And this is the week I will be making the decision about the baby shower – whether live and in person or all virtual. And then a week from now will be getting those invitations out.

Much to get ready for Wed night as we are having appetizers but you know our appetizers are going to be the good kind. lol. Findlay will be coming! Looking forward to seeing that girl.

Better get dressed and get to work!

    I’m so glad you had such a lovely weekend Today you will be back to work again I hope that it is a good week. I love how the dogs take charge of you and George. Especially in the car. Over here it is against the law to allow dogs to sit on our knees whilst we are driving in fact I have a feeling that they are supposed to be in a harness in the car not that my Masy does, she like your Masy likes to be sitting on whoever is sitting in the front but not on my knee,,, I’m glad that you didn’t have to long to wait in that long queue at KFC. And that the weight was well worth it everything looked yummy I had a very quiet weekend….nothing unusual in that it’s seven weeks now since I have ventured out of the house other than into the garden yesterday Sunday I tried to let Mary hear and see her church service but for some reason we coudnt get it…I think they were having difficulty getting it all on air…. I did manage to tune into another service.but it isn’t the same without a congregation I really miss our service so hope we can restart again in the not to distant future. I have I’m sure told you how much we enjoyed your first video you are so clever. ……. night night till tomorrow. God Bless

  2. Oh, you had a great weekend/Mother’s day. I know your mom enjoyed her day also.
    You have a nice selection of masks. Something to go with everything.
    All the doggies are so sweet. Spoiled rotten, as they should be!
