Well, it is 4 days away from Mother’s day, what to do for Mom?? Well my mom LOVES food, even though she is a health nut. And I have her getting on my band wagon with eating more organic, local foods. With this said, my one gift to my mom is digging up a garden in the back yard. She is a teacher who is very busy (Teachers appreciation week I might add) and 2 days on the weekend is not enough. So, today, I got the rake and the shovel out and began to overturn the current gross next to our shed. We had a few tomato and herb plants last year in pots, but this year we want to go even bigger! 3 tomato plants, 2 pepper plants, zucchini, lettuce, and some herbs. That should do it for now, because we do love to go to our local farmers market. Speaking of which, check out Olney’s Farmers market starting this Sunday, on Mother’s day! They are located in front of the old movie theater off Town Center dr. They are suppose to have tons of craft venders and hopefully you can catch a few farmers with their first pick of the season.
So you take Saturday afternoon probably to head up to your CVS or local grocery store to find the perfect (or not so perfect) card for Mom. I tend to dread this moment. All of the cards are just stacked starring straight at you. None which every sound exactly what you want, either too mushy for your relationship or too boring. So I decided since last year to make my mom cards from either old cards around the house – cut the front picture off and use construction paper to write what you want or cut up some old magazines with pretty flowers and clue old buttons and ribbons on them to make it pretty! Moms always loved when you did this when you were younger – a few years on you doesn’t make a difference. They still appreciate it. I swear! Try it!
