WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE #462

Thank you Joyce.

1. What do you never get tired of? 

Seeing James of course. Look at him, he is getting tall and thin like his daddy was. Slims didn't even stay up on Adam.  

2. My mother made the best     lasagna  .

3. What machine or appliance in your home aggravates you the most? Why? 

I was thinking that there isn't an appliance that aggravates me but with further thought I guess it's our double oven but only because sometimes it makes a funny noise while heating up. 

4. What are three things that brighten up your day when they happen? 

1. A hug from Mark. 
2. Texting with Amber in the morning. 
3. Seeing James! (his mom and dad too)

5. Thursday (May 12) is National Limerick Day...write a limerick about relating to spring weather, spring blooms, or a spring event (five lines, the first two lines rhyme with the fifth line, the third and fourth lines rhyme together)

There is a bunny who comes into our yard 
A picture of him would make a cute post card
He comes to see if I left him a carrot for him to eat
It bring me such joy to watch because it's just so sweet
Then he rests for a while before he puts up his guard

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I had a lovely Mother's Day. Amber called me in the morning and we talked for a long time. Usually we text each day but talking on the phone is really nice. I received a nice card and some money from her and Dylan.

Later in the day we went over to Adam and Gabby's. We brought all the fixings for dinner. We had Prime Rib, baked potatoes and a Caesar salad. We also made Rotel queso and chips when we got there. We decided on no dessert because it is just too much. 

My cards and gifts on the counter in the kitchen. Mark had bought me See's dark chocolate hearts with peanut butter inside and Adam, Gabby and James bought me See's Nuts and Chews along with the beautiful flower arrangement and a candle.

Golly, James IS getting tall! It sounds like your Mother's Day was a delight .... Prime rib sounds amazing, and I'm happy you were feted in the manner you deserve!

What pretty flowers! You were truly showered with wonderful Mother Day gifts :) Glad it was a great day for you, Debby! I love the picture of you, Gabby, and James! James sure is getting tall indeed! Cute limerick too :) I think if I said an appliance that drives me crazy it is our dishwasher. We need to get a new one. It doesn't clean like it should.

Awwwwwww Debby..... these pictures are absolutely wonderful. And that Sweet Baby James of yours could NOT be more precious if he tried. It sounds like you had a grand Mother's Day and I'm so glad. You deserved it, my friend! ~Andrea xoxo

Awww...sweet James. That face just begs to be smootched.
I have to say that I miss my Mom's pot roast and my Mother in law's roast beef with roasted potatoes and onions. Mine never turned out the same...yum.
I have 2 appliances that aggravate me..1- my dishwasher because it stopped rinsing and draining..yuck. It just sits there staring at me. Can't use it. 2- our built in microwave (an ancient creature that was in the house when we bought it.) Can't use it at all...Its so old that we can't find parts for it. Its attached (to our oven one on top of the other ) so it just sits there looking at me too.
Nice seeing photos of you and your family.

Your Mother's Day dinner sounds good. Looks like you were well celebrated! I know it's hard to have so much geographic distance between you and your daughter. I definitely understand that! I'm glad you had a nice call. I do think texting regularly makes us feel like we're more connected too, which helps. My girls will be here tomorrow. I can't wait!!

See's Nuts and Chews...I love them! Lucky you!

Mary said...

So glad you had such a nice Mother's Day! My mom also made good lasagna...whenever I had a baby and when I had my gallbladder surgery, she would stock up our freezer with her lasagna!

I knew James would be at the top of the list for you! I'm always happy to see a box of See's candy to enjoy. Glad you had a nice Mother's day!

Anne in the kitchen said...

James has gotten so much older looking.
See's candies are my favorites!

Looks like you had a great Mother's Day!

Chatty Crone said...

I love the three things you love everyday!
Looks like you had a wonderful mother's day there.
James is adorable.
How good to see your picture - you are beautiful.

Hey to let you know - Andy turned 21 in April - he graduated yesterday, has taken a job in Atlanta, and moved to an apartment a week ago in Atlanta - can you believe it - the end of an era. A lot of changes. PHEW.

Hi,
Oh, I just love your limerick. :-)
Well Done!!

Your Mother's Day sounded fabulous. Great gifts too!!

Kirstin said...

Love your photos. Lasagna is a favorite for sure.

Secret Agent Woman said...

Your mother's day sounds wonderful! My younger son and his girlfriend came over for lunch and brought me tomato plants and my older son called and talked to me for almost two hours, so I was a happy mom!
