I don’t know about you, but it’s nary the end of May and as usual, I’ve been burning the candle at both ends inside and out. The gardens and my little booth are keeping me humming along, not to mention my FIRST (and most important) job as chief homesteader at Dandelion House. I’m guessing you’re doing the same thing in your own special farmgirl ways, so I’ve decided we should all play hooky for the day! Don’t hem and haw now! Let’s just go! Quick! Step on to the launch pad! Scotty… Beam us to the beach please before we change our minds! One, two, threeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Sh. Close your eyes and listen. Do you hear the gentle crashing of the waves in the distance? Can you smell the scent of lilacs in the breeze? Is the sun warm on your back? Good! Welcome to the Cottage Life! We’re coming Max!!!
I hope this post finds you all in good spirits and ready to celebrate Mother’s Day with your loved ones! What do you do to celebrate? This year my handsome Yankee confessed ( ahead of time ) that he bought me some sort of new slicer- dicer kitchen gadget that’ll do just about everything but pluck my eyebrows and trim my toe nails and it doesn’t use electricity! I’ll admit the no electricity factor has me intrigued but he knows I have an aversion to new- fangled kitchen appliances! I’m simply happy with the basics but he is confident I’ll L.O.V.E. LOVE it. Remind me not to let him do the shopping at B.J’s from now on! Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, let’s go down town to Main Street Antiques and do a little window shopping at Burlap and Bling shall we? I know there are some GOOD mother’s day gift ideas to be had there! Tee Hee.
