Well, Sunday was a lovely quiet day...just what was ordered for this mama. Car Guy took me to breakfast....after letting me sleep late...Are any of you in relationships with morning people? Aren't they disgusting? Ugh! He wakes up all chipper and chatty and all I want is my coffee and quite...and for crying out loud, on Sunday, don't wake me before 9 am....if then. That doesn't normally happen, but on Mother's Day, I slept until 10 am...it was bliss.
We have a tendency to keep things kind of low key around here. The main thing about Mother's Day is that the Mama gets to do whatever she wants, so I put a pot roast on when we got back from breakfast and planted myself on the sofa with my needles and yarn and proceeded to watch the first season of "Downton Abbey" and oh my, I'm hooked. My Sainted Mother, Frankie and my Mother in Law came over to enjoy some quality PBS entertainment and eat the pot roast for dinner. After cooking all day, the roast was perfect.

Now, I have to share my Mother's Day card with you...It's not the typical hearts and flowers kind of card, but it so epitomizes my off beat family, that it's perfect...
All in all, it was a perfect Mother's Day. Going back to work on Monday was quite a shock to my system. I hope all you mamas out there were able to spend your Mother's Day the way you wanted!
