i'm having this kind of day...

visitor on the patio May 9, 2010
It is a perfectly perfect day at Willow Manor.  What have I been doing?  A little potting of flowers, a bit of poetry writing, and some delicious piddling. My three guys are providing my favorite Mother's Day tradition of Chinese carry-out and beer later this evening on the patio. Clear skies here, in Central Ohio, cool and breezy.  My idea of wonderful.  Hope you are enjoying your Sunday, as well.

  4. Steven, what would I do without my boys? I had a nice chat with my daughter, earlier, who lives in New York. The only thing that would make this day more perfect, is if she could be here, as well.

  7. That's such a beautiful day.

    My MD dinner this year is fish and chips. I love it with a little soy sauce and wasabi in lieu of tartar or ketchup ~ Divine!!

    Happy Mother's Day!

  13. Sounds pretty fine -- much the same here -- watering the potted plants like Browning's Brother Lawrence, taking some pictures, enjoying a dazzling and breezy-cool day, and knowing that my younger son and his girlfriend are fixing dinner. (Chinese carry-out sounds terrific but no one delivers anything but the mail out where we are.)

    A beautiful photo too!

  17. Happy Mother's Day, Willow! We had a similar day here--gorgeous weather, talked to Eric and my sisters and brother on the phone, brunch with a bunch of friends, (with champagne mimosas that made me crash on the way home they were so potent.) Planted in the garden, and relaxing tonight. Enjoy!

  30. I've spent a great part of the day sick, napping, resting, hoping this little cold doesn't bloom into something more fierce.

    The Chinese takeout sounds divine. As does the piddling and poetry writing!!
