Happy Spring friends. We are having unusually warm and dry weather already. To say that I am not looking forward to summer is a big understatement. BUT I will not start complaining just yet. Well, not much anyway! I hope to get a few things done around the yard this week. Keeping my fingers crossed! I have a couple of things that need planted and need to do some pruning (yes, I know I am behind but whats new!).
I have decided that I don't really have spring fever this year but I have found myself with baby fever. I showed Mr. Giggles a picture of a cute little blue eyed boy from a blog I read and told him I wanted one. His response was "I will run to Walmart and get you one". Isn't it nice to have a comedian for a husband? Anyway, I really want a baby (really two but not at the same time!). . . . . .
Tonight for dinner I tried a new recipe from the Pioneer Woman. Mr. Giggles gave it 2 thumbs up (well, almost 2, he said it needed mushrooms). I will try to post the recipe tomorrow. It was easy and yummy. No menu for this week. It will pretty much be a fend for your self and leftovers week. No reason. . .that is just how it worked out!
This season really makes me miss my Mom. She loved working outside and always had the most beautiful looking flowerbeds and yard. I miss asking her the names of flowers and trees. I miss going to Walmart to get plants and the rock place to get mulch. I just really miss my Mom. Today I as I was driving home for the third time, I found myself thinking how hard it is to believe that she is really gone. Yes, even after a year I have a hard time believing it. Does that feeling ever go away? It doesn't seem the same as when we lost Baby Giggles. Maybe because I spent 39 years with my Mom and only got to carry Baby G for 5.5 months and hold him for a couple of hours. I just don't know. It's not fair. I think about them both everyday and miss them both. I cried myself to sleep last night. I haven't done that in a few months.
Well, I appear to be rambling and it is late and I am tired and I am sure that if you are still reading you are bored to death. So, goodnight friends.
