Yesterday started out to be a very good Mother’s day before the torando warnings. I awoken and saw Brian and Tom hiding outside the kitchen window. There was a gift on the table with some cards. I knocked on the window and asked them what they were doing. “Happy Mother’s Day!” was their reply. Brian ran in all excited for me to open my gift. I opened the cards and then the gift. It was a digital picture frame. It was something they thought I could use. I opened the box and it was empty. Tom and Brian bought an empty box thinking that the digital frame was in there. I started laughing, Tom felt foolish and Brian apoligized. “It’s ok”, I said. I also told him that the picture card that my camera uses wouldn’t work in this frame anyhow. He returned the empty box, got his money back and brought me home a beautiful hydrangea. I was very happy with the beautiful flower.
I felt bad telling him but, I usually take more than one picture of one thing at different angles, lighting, etc. Then I download them to my pc. I use a photo editor to choose the ones I think are best. Sometimes I get lucky with just one click.
Brian made me a beautiful and sentimental card. Notice that he wrote, Dear Elizabeth instead of Grammy. I thought that was too funny. No one ever calls me Elizabeth they call me Liz. I rather like the name Elizabeth. The words brought a smile to my face.
Made a batch of sugar cookies this morning. The day flew by and I didn’t get much accomplished.
