Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to all the women in my life and 2 special ladies who live in my heart:  my Mother Lorraine and my Mother-in-law Pattie.  Two special ladies who left much too early.
We Skpyed with our daughter this morning.  It's not as good as having her here, but it's so much better than just a phone call.  I get to see her sweet face and know that where she is makes her so happy--that makes me happy.
I opened my gifts from her while we Skyped, loads of goodies, her Japanese baseball teams's mascot--so cute, a little critter holding roses---it's Mother's Day in Japan too, little candies, bath fizzles and the most gorgeous tea towel, I'm not sure I can stand to use it.
Can't wait till our trip to Japan to see her!!!
Mac got me something I'd seen on E-bay and I fell in love with it.  It's a Villeroy and Boch Mother and Child cup---just gorgeous.
Plus I woke up to find a vase of flowers on my nightstand!!!
The weather is gorgeous, he's cooking lunch and I couldn't be happier.

Hope all of you have a wonderful Mother's Day/Sunday too.

The Gardenia is so sweet I'm surprised it didn't wake me up.

All the little goodies including my stand-up kitty card

My cup, isn't it gorgeous!!!


  1. Oh you are loved, aren't you. Wonderful gifts and wonderful family.

  2. It sounds like you've been thoroughly spoilt, just as it should be. Happy Mother's Day!

  3. I don't blame you for falling in love with that cup, it is gorgeous.
    Happy Mother's Day!

  4. Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Such beautiful and thoughtful gifts.

  5. You had a wonderful Mother's Day Janet! Your daughter knows how to spoil you, and the gardenia is gorgeous! Lucky lady to have all this love lavished on you ... enjoy the week ahead :)


A Bit of a Milestone

Friday I went to the commissary with Mac to grocery shop and I managed to get all of it done without having to sit down and rest.  That ma...
