This and That

I had a good Mother's Day. Bean called early. We went to Mom's and got most of her rose garden weeded before my back gave out. BJ & family came over for awhile in the evening and gave me a gift certificate so I can buy more plants.

Mr L. didn't flag me down this morning, instead he just showed up at the garage with a huge amount of bread and baked goods for the drivers. It is so nice of him to do this for us. I felt bad that I couldn't spend more time chatting with him but today was the last day we had to practice for the roadeo. We spent a couple of hours brushing up on our backing skills and right hand turns and stop lines. I am so conditioned to not get close to anything without a spotter that backing to within 8" of a barricade is hard for me. The right hand turns are a daily thing for me but my partner wanted to work on that some. The rest of the week will be spent cleaning buses and studying. The written test is only 10 points but I get so embarrased if I miss any questions.

Alex was here for most of the day today. John got to play all day! I was home for lunch and then I ran to the store for Bean and stopped there before and after work. Sunny has a new tooth. Twig slept the whole time I was there.

The mail today brought my nephew's graduation anouncement and picture. He looks just like his Dad except maybe a little more handsome. In Texas they finish early, graduation is at the end of the month. His sister will be coming home from France in early June.

  1. I'm glad you had a happy Mother's Day. So did I...I worked in the garden after church, and all 3 of the kids called.
    I'll email you with the answer to your question about the barns being painted red. Sorry I've taken so long to respond. My computer's been acting up and we've finally ordered a new one. Thanks for visiting my blog!
    Good luck in the roadeo :)
